Kidnapping of The Bride (German Wedding Tradition)

In Germany a crazy and funny wedding tradition is the kidnapping of the bride. The bride is kidnapped by friends and then the groom has to find her. This shows his love for his wife to be. The search begins in local pubs. He has to search a lot of places before he finds her so he joins many people in the search after buying them a drink. She can be inside the closet, under the bed or in a store room. At times the ritual ended badly.
