A word of advice if you're planning a destination wedding: Pack your wedding dress and/or tuxedo in your carry-on.
Unfortunately, the groom learned this lesson the hard way. Reddit user Zebidee, a friend of the newly married couple, shared a photo from their Icelandic nuptials to Reddit. "If you want to wind up in the same country as your wedding outfits, don't fly Delta Air Lines," the user wrote. The caption, which accompanies a photo of a woman in a wedding gown kissing a man with a slightly less typical wedding outfit: underwear and a white T-shirt, reads, "This wedding suit courtesy of Delta Airlines." Yep, the groom was the victim of lost luggage, leaving him utterly suitless on the big day. At least the gorgeous Icelandic scenery slightly distracts from the unique ensemble choice...
"My friend and her fiancé were on her way to their wedding in Iceland. Their flight from Washington DC was delayed, setting them up for a missed connection in New York," Zebidee said on Reddit. "They were re-routed via Paris and Berlin, but despite constant contact with Delta Airlines to make sure their luggage wound up in the right place, the airline washed their hands of the situation."
Even though the groom's suit did not make it to Iceland by the time he said "I do," he was eventually reunited with his luggage. "They finally tracked down their luggage themselves, abandoned on a baggage carousel in Frankfurt 1500 miles away," Zebidee wrote. "Delta is currently telling them to take the issue up with the last carrier, Air Berlin, who never even touched their luggage."
Although it was a disappointment that the groom didn't get to wear the suit he'd been planning, his homemade T-shirt certainly made the wedding an affair his guests would never forget.
