Nothing like a wedding in a pool (10 Photos)

A happy couple celebrated their nuptials by tying the knot in a swimming pool in Nanjing, China. The two lovebirds wed on 1 August (10), which is celebrated as Chinese Army Day. But the ceremony didn’t come cheap – the pool cost 20,000 RMB ($2,950/£1,965) to rent alone, while the underwater camera, diving coach and site decoration were an extra 50,000 RMB. Love means showing up all your friends.

    I say this with no disrespect, but man…Asian's are the wierdest group of people I've ever seen.

      I'd say that's there is still some disrespect in that statement, even if you said there's not.

      And you say this on the Chive where WalMart Shoppers are a regular feature?

    I'm from China. To tell the truth, this actually is a very civilized and creative wedding ceremony.

    Id ask why but Im guessin the answer would probably be "Why not?"

    I think this is actually a really fun idea. It's unique and it's not like they were just getting married at the pool, they were actually having a ceremony in the water.

    […] It used to be that Japan was the primary origin of strange wedding news. But alas, China is taking a run for the crown with this one. Read More! […]
