A bride from Cixi, Zhejiang province who was stuck in heavy traffic on the way to her own wedding resorted to exchanging vows with her fiancé over the airwaves when they realized she wouldn’t make it on time.
The bride, Yan Mengxia, took off at 1:00 p.m. on October 1 to begin the 300-kilometer haul to Yongkang, where the wedding ceremony was to take place.
As she was held up in miserable traffic caused by the National Day rush, her anxious fiancé continued dialing up FM93 Traffic Radio for updates on road conditions.
By the time 4:00 p.m. rolled around, he realized that his bride wasn’t going to make it to the wedding in time. The traffic station saved the day, and offered to perform the ceremony over the airwaves.
Congestion on the roads resulting from thousands of travelers returning home on Tuesday, the last day of the week-long holiday, caused standstills lasting for hours on expressways across the country. China saw a record number of over six million people visiting tourists sites on Friday.
Visitors at the former residence of Chairman Mao in Hunan province reportedly had to wait three hours to buy tickets after a line of over 4,000 people stacked up.
