MESA, Ariz. (AP) — It's a mega wedding day for a Mesa, Ariz., family with five siblings walking down the aisle on the same day.

The East Valley Tribune (http://bit.ly/P39zqT ) reports the five Waldie children all got engaged within a few months of each other.

While trying to plan wedding dates with out-of-state family and guests, dad Doug Waldie suggested they all marry on the same day.

So five of the eight Waldie children got married Friday at a Mormon church in Mesa: 28-year-old Emily, 26-year-old Bradford, 25-year-old Sydney, 24-year-old Walker and 20-year-old Brooke.

Each ceremony was separate, but the reception was scheduled for all five couples Friday night at the Falcon Field Air Force Museum.

Eighteen-year-old Andee Waldie, one of two unmarried sisters, was a bridesmaid for four of the couples.
