An Italian priest, Cristiano Bobbo, has opined that weddings have turned into a glamorous social events, rather than solemn spiritual occasions. He suggested that brides who wear any clothing item with a plunging neckline should be fined.
Father Bobbo who has officiated different weddings revealed that he has witnessed many nuptials and noticed that the bride's dressing to the altar seems to be vulgar and even worse as time goes by.
His solution to the apparent problem was to make brides who want to look in a certain way pay more for their wedding ceremonies. Cristaino who hails from Oriago, near Venice, Italy, advised that such brides who would rather show off their goodies should be fined.
He said: "We could establish a sort of offering to be levied in proportion to the decency of the dress of the bride, who often present themselves looking coarse and vulgar, so the least dressed pay the most."
Writing to parishioners, Bobbo expressed his distaste and revealed that he would effect the changes he hopes to see if given the chance. He hammered that church wedding have been reduced from being a sacred ceremony to a social event.
Although many people agreed with the priest and thought his complaints were true, some others thought it was out of reach and brides should be allowed to wear whatever they feel most comfortable in.
Tying the knot is such a big deal in today's society. So much that just recently, a woman who was expecting, delivered a baby and immediately headed straight to the altar hours after delivering to marry her man.
