Photos: Hundreds of kids take part in 'group wedding'

Don’t worry, it wasn’t legally binding – a playschool in China did it to encourage the kids to be more responsible and confident.

DON’T WORRY, IT’S not as creepy as it sounds.

More than one hundreds kids at a playschool in China took part in this ‘group wedding’ this week. The girls wore white dresses, the boys wore suits, and there were pink balloons in the shape of love hearts.

But this wasn’t legally binding (phew!). Instead, the head of the playschool said the kids were making a commitment to each other because children demonstrate more responsibility and show more confidence through the wedding.

This isn’t the first playschool to hold a ‘group wedding’ – they’ve been increasing in parts of China in recent years – but this one in Zhengzhou is believed to be the largest one so far.

Here’s what happened:
