Wedding a la Carte
I was daydreaming the other day about the Scottish wedding scene in the early part of Braveheart and how simple it all was for the couple. They fell in love, they had a small outside ceremony in their small Scottish village with their neighbors and friends, and everyone seemed happy.
Sure, Scotland was under British rule, and under the law of Primae Noctis, the English lord had the right to sleep with the bride on her wedding night, which sucked for the groom — but at least he didn’t have to put a down payment on the wedding cake. I’m not even sure they had cake back then — they just served bowls of sugar for dessert. But I digress.
