In the world of Harry Potter, owls deliver all sorts of things including messages and broomsticks. In the real world, they do whatever they darn well please. Darcy the owl proved this when one bride decided to surprise her groom by having an owl swoop down to the altar with the rings tied to his feet. The groom is into falconry, so it was a thoughtful idea, but it went a bit haywire.
Darcy, who clearly has no appreciation for romance, decided to perch himself up in the church rafters and take a nap. Luckily, they had a spare set of rings on hand just in case, and those were used to finish the ceremony.
All you people planning Harry Potter themed weddings, let this serve as your warning not to use owls to deliver anything on your wedding day.
