Couple Exchanges Guitars Instead Of Rings In Their Wedding

Instead of exchanging wedding rings and vows, a heavy-metal couple exchanged electric guitars at their wedding.
Video creator Madi Danger and her husband, Jay Aspen, tied the knot in Idaho Falls, Idaho last month. Unlike traditional weddings, the couple made sure that their special moment will be “less stressful and more personal.” Thus instead of exchanging wedding rings, they swapped Gibson Explorers with each other.
Danger tells the Post about the couple’s very metal ceremony:
“It was really fun because the guitars had been hidden for so long — like when the groom can’t see the bride.
“Only a few people knew about it so some people were shocked and then they were excited about it.”
The idea for the guitars came naturally to Madi and Jay after they were randomly discussing what new instruments they desired. Danger explains:
“We were talking about what guitars we wanted and we were looking on Gibson’s website at the Explorers.
“I joked about us exchanging those at our wedding then we decided to do that instead.”
“I really like Victorian-style rings, but they’re hard to find and the ones we saw looked really cheap and awful. Jay didn’t want to buy me a crappy ring and he doesn’t like wearing rings anyway.”
