In some small villages in Germany, grooms aren’t guaranteed that their brides will make it to the altar on time – or at all. Kidnapping the bride is an old custom, beloved by pranksters, and friends of the betrothed. After the bride’s friends kidnap her, the groom is tasked with looking for his one true love. The best hunting grounds (of course) are pubs. There, the locals might provide clues, provided they are invited to the wedding. If the invite isn’t forthcoming, custom demands that the brideless groom pick up the bar tab – for the entire pub. (Brides used to be routinely kidnapped, around the world. Seriously!)
