Brazilian identical triplets marry on the same day at the same time – and yes the grooms did get confused

29 year old triplets, Rafaela, Rochele
and Tagiane Bini from Passo Fundo, southern , tied the knot same
day at the same ceremony, wore the
same wedding dress, as well as hair style and make up and confused not
just their guests but also their grooms who also looked strikingly
The only way guests could distinguish
one bride from the other at the ceremony on Saturday was the different
colour of bouquet they carried. Even
the grooms – Rafael, Gabriel & Eduardo, said they had worried
they might mix up their wives-to-be when it came to exchanging vows. One
of the grooms, Rafael, who married Rafaela, told how the girls
sometimes deliberately confused their fiances.


He said
‘There was a time when we were all in the kitchen making
dinner. So Rochele, who is Gabriel’s, was doing stuff at the sink, and
Rafaela was at the stove. We
were there chatting and they changed places. I went behind to hug her,
and said “oops” when I realised I’d got the wrong girl.’

The girls explained how they all went together to get their hair and make-up done with the intention of looking different. 
said Rochele, ‘We tried a number of styles, but we all liked the same
one. It’s not even worth trying, it always ends up like that.’

parents, Pedro and Salete, already had one daughter, Liziele, when they
decided to increase the family – but never imagined three more girls
would come at once.
Mother Salete fainted when she was told she was expecting triplets, according to the girls.
was the first to find her future husband, Rafael, ten years ago while
studying at university. A year later, Rochele got together with Gabriel.
It was parents Pedro and Salete who suggested the girls all get married together after Tagiane also got engaged to Eduardo.
The only dilemma for Pedro, a farmer, was how he would walk all three daughters down the aisle at once.
said: ‘We decided that we would all walk down the aisle until half way
down the church. From there, I would take one at a time.’

The first to be taken to
the altar by their father was Tagiane, who was the first to be born. She
remembered: ‘I tried to hold back my emotion, but I couldn’t. To see my
dad there, at that moment, was a feeling I can’t explain.’
