We predict Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly’s wedding will include this ritual…

We’re betting on a blood toast. 


What will Megan Fox & Machine Gun Kelly’s wedding ceremony be like?


If it’s anything like their engagement, it’ll be sexy and sentimental, with a side of blood ritual... 


The couple announced their engagement over social media this week, with Fox sharing a video of MGK down on one knee under the banyan tree where the couple first sat together a year and a half ago.

The caption was everything we’ve come to expect from the passionate couple – beautiful, vulnerable, intense, and with a casually deviant twist


“And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes.


…and then we drank each other’s blood.”


Now, these two are no strangers to intensity. Fox once told People magazine that she knew right away that Colson Baker (MGK’s real name) was her twin flame – “a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time” – adding that she believes they’re “actually two halves of the same soul.”  


Talk about being all in on someone! 


Still, drinking blood is another level of commitment entirely.

Whether this ceremonial crimson toast was metaphoric, an offbeat joke to get the tabloids talking, or an actual ritual, it’s certainly not the first of its kind… 



Blood rituals have been a part of the wedding ceremony for centuries. 



Most recently, Angelia Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton wore vials of each other's blood around their necks while they were married in the early 2000s, to remind them of one another when they were apart. MGK did the same thing just last year, when he started wearing a vial of Fox’s blood around his neck, perhaps as a sign of things to come. 


Before that, Vikings poured blood from a ritual animal sacrifice onto altar stones as an offering to the gods during the pagan marriage rite, followed by smearing blood onto the couple’s foreheads. The ritual, called a blot, is still performed in modern Viking weddings today, most often using pig’s blood.


Blood oaths have been incorporated into eclectic pagan handfastings of all kinds over the years. 


And, of course, gothic lore tells of devilishly attractive vampires siring an eternal mate with the lustful exchange of blood, inspiring multiple incarnations of blood-tinged kink, erotica, romance, and ceremony. 


So whether Fox and Baker really drank each other’s blood this week or not, there’s still plenty of time (and inspiration) for them to work it into the wedding ceremony script before the big day.  



We predict a unity blood toast!

(or maybe this unity wine toast with an earthy red?)



We can’t wait to see the glitz, glamor, and gore this happy couple has in store for us.
