June, the month of weddings, is practically around the corner. Why not plan for an underwater one, like this couple from 1954, courtesy of the Life Online Photo Archives...?

There is no way I would spend that much money on a dress only to get in the water.
Plus after having smoked for over 25 years I would probably be dead before I got to the bottom of the steps.

I was hoping it was the Aquarena Springs in Texas. Didn't know there was one in Arkansas. Did they have a Ralph the Swimming Pig in Arkansas, too?
I was looking at that dress and wondering - 1)just what it was weighted with to keep it from floating up over the bride's head and 2)how many yards of nylon net were involved.

Do they just write down their vows on those divers' tablets?

It doesn't matter, KingMonkey, they're all wet!

Something about all of this smells fishy. I think this story just doesn't hold water. This marriage will sink like a rock.

HAD a microphone Big Gary -- HAD. Our beloved Aquarena Springs will never host this type of event ever again. It is now a "Environmental Education Center". sigh... No diving pigs, no cheesy mermaid shows (drinking cokes underwater, "sipping" air from a hose), no checkers playing chickens. It's a sadder world.
