We love wedding fails here at Union Diamond, who doesn’t right? But usually they’re along the lines of cakes toppling over or, the best man tripping and pulling down grandma’s skirt. This however, brings the wedding fail to a whole different level. Allow us to introduce the woman who tied her infant daughter to the train of her wedding gown and then proceeded to drag her down the aisle. Seriously. There are pictures….

It’s 52 degrees in Atlanta right now, which is downright glacial when you think about the fact that it’s May, and well, this is GA. You’d expect this sort of thing from places like Chicago and New York, but we had temps in the 90’s in March, and weather is just not supposed to go backwards, us Georgians could very well start suffering from frostbite.
