When my parents married, my dad parked his car in a downtown Minneapolis parking lot and took a taxi to the church. After the reception, he carried his bride away in a cab as well. Thus, he thwarted his boisterous new brothers-in-law's plan to tie tin cans to his car's bumper.
That tradition has lost a lot of ground recently. For one thing, it’s not much fun to prank a rented limo -- nor is it allowed, to be honest, especially when the chauffeur is right there.
I confess, I get wistful whenever we show a couple's snazzily decorated car -- there’s a nostalgia that accompanies the toilet paper, shaving cream, and tin cans.
Are you going to decorate your car? Or will your groomsmen beat you to it?
