Guy Fulfils Promise Of Bringing Llama To Sister's Wedding
Most people promise to be well behaved at a wedding, not drink too much and not hit on the bridesmaids. But this brother kept his five year promise... to bring a llama along to his sister's wedding.
Mendl Weinstock didn't just take any old llama to his sister Riva Eisenberg's wedding either. He took a llama wearing a tuxedo.
Riva, 22, who got married just yesterday (1 March) was said to be 'angry' initially but was soon able to laugh off the unexpected guest.
Speaking to LADbible, 21-year-old Mendl explained: "Five years ago she was talking about her wedding as if it were tomorrow when she wasn't even dating anyone.
"I told her if she makes me come to this wedding I was going to bring a llama with me, it was the first thing that popped into my head just to get a reaction out of her. She got very upset and told me I couldn't.
"I kept pushing so she tried to use reverse psychology on me by saying the llama was invited to the wedding, I took her literally and ever since that day I have promised that I would do it.

"Yesterday I fulfilled that promise. She was shocked and a little angry at first, as you can see in the picture, but eventually she realised it was in good fun and overall she had an amazing wedding."
Mendl, a financial planning student from Cleveland, Ohio, added: "She [Riva] said a lot of words that are not appropriate in polite company but she accepted it and had a good time.
"Many knew I was planning it but didn't really think I'd follow through. For some it was totally out of the blue and they were in disbelief."
The llama was only at the wedding for a few hours in order to get some pictures but it wasn't there for the actual ceremony.
Mendl added: "The handlers actually put the tux on, apparently this particular llama is used to wearing costumes. As far as where I got the tux from goes, a good friend of mine heard the story and offered to sew it up for me because she wanted to help create more goodness in the world.
"She made the tux using dimensions sent to us from the handlers but the handlers actually put the tux on."
Hats off to all involved.
