Groom almost marries wrong bride after GPS sends him to different address

You can't blame cold feet on this one.

An Indonesian groom almost married another woman after GPS pointed him to the wrong location—which was coincidentally holding a wedding as well.

The incident happened in Magelang in the Indonesian province of Central Java, as the engaged couple shared their wedding location via the Google Maps 'location sharing' feature. The bride claims that she didn't send the wrong address and it was purely Google's fault.

Bringing his entourage along, they even apparently exchanged niceties to the wrong family, gave gifts, and took their 'respective seats' before realizing he wasn't who they were waiting for.

In a video that's since gone viral, the entire entourage can be seen sheepishly leaving the wrong wedding. Carrying their belongings, the groom even sent a little wave to the camera. Despite the awkward mix-up, the other woman, Ulfa, says that she understands the mistake.
