A 31-year-old bride heading home from her bachelorette party was arrested for drunk driving hours before she was to get married.

Washington State Patrol Trooper Christina Martin says the woman was driving over 90 mph (145 kph) Saturday morning and weaving in and out of traffic when she was stopped.

Martin says a trooper arrested the woman, processed her and let her take a cab home in time to make it to her early afternoon wedding.

Martin says the bride's alcohol level was nearly twice the legal state limit. The woman will face charges in King County District Court.
