In search of a monkey ring-bearer

Save to Stuff I Love!

Anyone who has ever gotten married knows that wedding planning involves a certain amount of compromise.

But one bride from Roanoke, Virginia seems to be displaying more than the average amount of patience after her fiancé requested something a bit different for their nuptials: a monkey as a ring-bearer.

According to a report in the Roanoke Times, Mik Collins and Brandy Reynolds agreed that a small primate could be involved in their ceremony, as long as the groom gave up his dreams of keeping one as a pet.

Collins then placed an ad in the local newspaper specifying the need for a diaper-clad monkey that "must not eat guests."

"I never thought in a million years that he'd find one. That's why I agreed," Reynolds admitted to the Times.

Although no takers have stepped forward yet, even the bride's family has apparently come around and is excited about the prospect of a novel addition to the ceremony.

No word yet, however, on whether the monkey will be incorporated into the wedding photography.

  • Just found this online. Wow... a joke between my fiance and myself has gotten all over the web. Apparently there are two ways to get in the paper/on the radio/online: 1) accomplish something with your life or 2) be a weirdo. Option 2 is much easier. Oh well, if it helps the cause it can't be bad!

    We're totally serious (a deal's a deal)and we're otherwise pretty normal people. Not to mention Brandy's obviously a good sport. Some thoughts... please no offers of people in costumes. Please no offers to "act like a monkey" (that job is filled). A capuchan... a spider monkey...at this point I'd take a three toed sloth with an attractive haircut.

    C'mon....help me find my Monkey! 540-525-4502
