He’s all smiles, but I’m a little nervous, which is unsurprising because we’ve only just met. After all, the wedding is as fake as the flowers that frame the arch above us, and our marriage is for just one day.I’m trying out Marry an Amsterdammer for the day, one of several innovative activities suggested in the Untourist Guide to Amsterdam, a book and website launched this week, in collaboration with the city marketing organization Amsterdam&Partners, and local businesses.Starting at €100, tourists bid for a listed bride or groom and perform a mock wedding ceremony at Wed&Walk, a shop that doubles up as a chapel in the De Pijp district of Amsterdam.The ceremony includes fake flowers and inexpensive rings.And they can do many of these things without ever leaving their “place.” I named this blog Plant out of Place for several reasons.
A part of the money also goes to a charity chosen by the bride or groom. Well if you’re looking for true love, then it’s probably not, but it is one of the many innovative ways mass tourism is being tackled in Amsterdam.
The bride walks down the aisle to her ‘betrothed’ and the couple seals the deal with a hug.
The wedding is followed by a one-day honeymoon where the couple can explore quieter nooks of Amsterdam, away from the buzzing tourist destinations.
Tall larkspur, for example, is a plant native to high elevation rangelands in the western United States.
Larkspur is among the most common causes of cattle poisonings reported in these regions.
