Taking April Fool’s Joke To New Heights
While many of us settle with simple and basic jokes for April Fool’s, one couple set the standard so high that it might take a while before anyone can beat the record. This might even inspire brides from Latin-Brides.net to set-up their wedding to be as fun as this one. The couple in question decided to prank their family and friends by organizing their real wedding.
Last year, Kevin and JarnellSwecker sent invitations to 160 of their closest family and friends. Everyone think that they are going to host an engagement party. According to the bride, they decided to use electronic invitation rather than the usual formal invitation letter in paper. This is to make sure that the guests will have no idea.
Swecker who is 38 years old said that they chose e-vites because it is more casual and the formal invitation would have raised some questions and might spoil their surprise.
Finally their special day came on April 1, 2017 and Swecker went to the venue in Ellicott City called the Main Street Ballroom. She was only dressed in a mini dress with laces and in the light pink color.
Swecker said that they heard how everyone was raving about the engagement party since it is the nicest they have been to. They spent the first hour drinking and talking with their guests. They decided to use a song as a code and when the DJ played the song, it means that the wedding is about to start.
They chose the song I Feel It Coming by The Weeknd and once the bride heard it she went ahead to change into the bridal gown while her father donned a tuxedo.
Mahalia Jessup, the cousin of the bride, is the wedding planner and the owner of C’est Belle Events. She is one of the limited people in the circle who knew about the wedding. She recalled how the day was buzzing with excitement.
When the bride walked out, everyone was cheering and crying at the same time. Swecker said that it was the perfect wedding day for them plus the fact that she loves April Fool’s Day. Their story went viral that it could influence brides at Latin-Brides.net when they plan their own wedding.
