WATCH: This Bride Chowed Down on a Cheeseburger at a Hockey Game — in Her Wedding Dress!


After months of forgoing decadent desserts and greasy fast food on a wedding day diet (because you must fit into that curve-hugging mermaid gown that you just had to have...), there's nothing you're going to want to do more than say "I do" to a supersized, cheesy burger with all the sides by the time the big day rolls around. It looks like this Minnesota bride felt the same way, as the Jumbotron caught her chowing down on a cheeseburger at a recent hockey game — while still wearing her wedding dress!

"We're just two people who enjoy hockey and burgers," Erica Skuta, the hungry bride in question, told Buzzfeed. Mere hours after tying the knot, Skuta and her newly-minted hubby headed to another can't-miss event — the Minnesota Wild hockey game! "When we got engaged, we both joked how neat it would be to do something a little different and have an after-reception party at a Wild game," Skuta explained. "When the schedule was released at the start of the season and the game fell on the same day as the wedding, we had to go for it."

And that's how this bride ended up munching on a big, yummy cheeseburger in a tulle ballgown! Since then, the video of Skuta's post-nuptials meal — which includes a super sweet moment of the groom dabbing the ketchup from his bride's chin! — has gone viral with tens of thousands of views by tons of brides who totally get it. After an entire day spent with butterflies in your stomach and the paralyzing fear of staining your snow white frock, there's nothing like that first (carefree!) meal as a married couple. Chow on, Skuta!
