BONNEVILLE Country WIL/ST. LOUIS has announced that they will host "CORNBREAD's Big Fat Wedding 2," a MARDI GRAS-themed marriage event for 35 festive brides and grooms, which will take place during the 30th Annual SOULARD MARDI GRAS PARADE on SATURDAY (2/13).
“Reverend” CORNBREAD will serve as the officiant for the marriage ceremony, which will take place at 10:30a (CT) before the MARDI GRAS parade in the WIL staging area, located in the 7th STREET parking lot next to AL HRABOSKY's. The wedding will be a "mass mobile marriage" and will be the largest wedding reception with more than 100,000 guests at the annual ST. LOUIS MARDI GRAS celebration.
WIL morning man CORNBREAD said: “It's like I’m marrying ST. LOUIS again -- I treat her like a lady, and she gives me a WORLD SERIES trophy for our anniversary every so often ... we’re a great couple! We’re going to give MARDI GRAS a great show ... don’t miss it!”
The “en mass” wedding concept is not a new thing for WIL. In 2007, CORNBREAD married 100 couples under the Arch in ST LOUIS’ biggest wedding ever, an event which garnered national media coverage.
