No more Brazilian time for Brazilian brides

Priest fines for brides arriving late to altar

A 71-year-old priest in a small town in the state of Paraná said he’s fed up with brides arriving late to their own weddings. “They are very late and this is disrespectful to the guests and to me,” he told the media outlet G1. His solution: a $300 fine. He says he polled his congregation and most thought it was a good idea. So far, it appears to be working. He says he has yet to charge a tardy bride.
