AUDIO: "Let's Get Married"

Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on wwno.org.

This story was told on October 17th, 2013 at Fortier Park, and later produced by Karen Gardner. The theme of the evening was "Thrown", and here Voltaire Casino came all the way from Texas to offer cautionary advice for any almost-newlyweds considering taking the plunge. *Please note, the couple in this photo is not the couple described in the story.*

*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Liam Daniel Pierce, Laine Kaplan-Levenson and Nina Feldman. For details (and more stories) go to Bringyourownstories.com.
