The Flaming Wedding Dress

In one of my first weddings I learned to ask an important question. I now ask each bride if her dress has long sleeves. Why? In one particular wedding, the bride and groom approached the unity candle and as they were lighting the candle, the bride's sleeve caught fire. The groom quickly beat out the fire. The bride was unharmed, but as you can tell, the ceremony just wasn't quite as special from that point on.
