Wedding Idioms

I recently got married (check out my blog at for details and pictures) and I thought about all the wedding idioms there are. I picked a few I like the best and thought I would share them with you all.

get hitched - to get married. "Did you hear that Mark and Lisa got hitched last week?"

shotgun wedding - is a wedding that is rushed because the bride-to-be is pregnant. It's a forced wedding. "Mark and Mary had a shotgun wedding in Las Vegas. They had a baby girl 6 months later."

cold feet - when one feels nervous about the wedding. Having second thoughts about getting married. "His friends asked him if he was getting cold feet, but John was happy to get married and wasn't nervous at all."

tie the knot - to get married. "At 25 I was not ready to tie the knot. At 34 I felt it was time."
