An American soldier who was bummed out about missing his sister’s wedding made his presence felt in another way. Lance Corporal Ben Smith, who is currently stationed in Afghanistan, sent a life-size cardboard cutout of himself to the wedding of his sister Michelle.
The cardboard Flat Stanley was set up in various places around the wedding, including on the dance floor and behind the bar. He also made it into several of the wedding party’s photos. He also created a video message for the bride sending his well wishes. Check out all the hilarious pics here. The real question is, why couldn’t they have put him in a tux?
