Bride accidentally marries wrong man after power cut at wedding venue
A bride accidentally married the wrong man after a blackout ruined her wedding. The bride has revealed she was holding his hand thinking it was her groom.
A joint wedding in India saw two sisters get married. But a blackout meant they couldn’t see their beaus – and they accidentally married the wrong men.
A power cut threw the wedding into chaos. The father of the brides, Rameshlal Railot, organised the ceremonies on the same day.
He wished to marry his son and three daughters on the same day, according to The Independent. The sisters wore the same outfits and covered their faces as part of tradition.
But two of the sisters ended up sitting with the wrong grooms after a power cut. Nikita and Karishma, the two sisters, married Bhola and Ganesh respectively.
But it was set to be the other way around. The lights came back on and everyone realised the error. A source said: “They did not exchange garlands or wedding vows, but the [mixup] happened for one of the rituals.”
The brother spoke out, explaining the ceremony continued as planned after the mistake during one of the rituals. The area has frequent blackouts and power cuts, it was also reported.
