Stereotype or not, most grooms would rather not have that much to do with the wedding planning process. The idea of signing off on a color scheme or booking a florist sends them running for the hills. That's a reality most brides can fully accept. Until you ask for one simple task, and it turns into a TOTAL fiasco! What one groom from Liverpool, U.K. named Neil McArdle did is a perfect -- albeit extreme! -- example of this.
The 36-year-old and his bride-to-be, Amy Williams, were planning on getting hitched at the Liverpool Register Office in St. George's Hall in April. The couple had pencilled in a date and were given "right to marry" paperwork to be filled in. But by the day they were supposed to say "I do," McArdle realized he had not completed the forms and the venue was not officially booked. So ... instead of 'fessing up, he decided to call in a bomb threat!
