A Nice Day for a Dull Wedding

Featured imageYou know what they say, “a Dothraki wedding without at least three deaths is considered a dull affair.” That quote could be said about all weddings in Westeros on Game of Thrones. So last night’s wedding between King Tomlin and Margaery Tyrell rates high on the boring scale. Even the honeymoon night was bland.

The Red Wedding was bloody, gory and tragic. The death at the Purple Wedding was something that made many fans rejoice. Maybe Sansa and Ramsey will have a sad bloodbath at that big upcoming wedding?

I’m trying to wrap my head around why weddings and death are so symbolically connected in the Game of Thrones verse. The one thing that I see that it is a significant lifestyle change. It’s the end of something, but also the start of something new. Just like death and the unknown afterlife.
