That site seems like it would make wedding crashing really easy....

Thank you!
It turns out that my head is too small. Wedding crashing WOULD be very easy. It always is. It's not as though most weddings are held in a secret location at a time only disclosed to a select few. Although, now that I say all that, I might have to talk to her about changing our wedding plans...

Have you set a date, Arres? We're booked the 13th of October next year. If you're still undecided, you should do the same. We could set up a webcam link and take our vows together and then, in an unlikely twist of fate, the absent minded registrars could simulataneously botch the vows to such an extent that we - you and I - actually end up married to each other. What an amusing series of transatlantic misadventures might follow! Easy on the homoerotic undertones, but heavy on the comical misunderstandings!

And yet I'm not in Hollywood. Where's your god now?

Let me know if any of you need a stripper for the parties before the big day. I know a guy who needs money.

Arres: I love it! I may have to use that one.

We definitely don't need any planning website or materials, we are either doing a JOP wedding, or having a JOP come to the house during a party for a "surprise" wedding. Haven't decided. The goal is to spend as LITTLE money as possible. It's a second marriage for us both, so why spend money?

Hirsch: Is it you? Because if it is, I may have to have a bacherlorette party just so I can have a stripper. ;)

Well, if the payment outweighs the cost of travel... yes.

I don't understand. Why would you marry a man, then live apart for almost a year, and leave all your family and friends?

Rors: We have, we're getting married on the 1st of January (18 days to go!). That being said, "accidentally" getting married to you, could make consumation a BITCH from that distance.

Hirsch: I'll let her know. Maybe don't pencil it in though. ;P

Tni: Thanks! I hear you on the keeping it small. This is our 2nd's as well. We were going for "medium sized" originally, and had so many issues and problems (like caterers who wouldn't send us contracts, or photographers who wouldn't return our calls, etc) that we got fed up with it and said "Direct Family only!" Then my sister called my parents and tattled on me because I told her not to bring her kids. ugh. We kept ours down under 5k, while still having a "wedding", so we're fairly pleased with ourselves. Of course the Honeymoon to Costa Rica is costing us a pretty penny, but that's for us exclusively so we don't mind as much.

We seriously are only having my parents (his are in Canada so probably won't come down for a JOP wedding), his daughter and maybe one friend to take pictures. I had friends and family get mad at me and I told them "suck it up, it is my wedding, not yours, I will do what I want. We may have a party that you can go to."

Wait, pet peeve thread. Hirsch has me thinking of him stripping now, um.

Well, regardless of what you guys decide -- congratulations to all of you.

Natalie and I tried to keep ours as low budget as possible while accommodating roughly 200 people. It was a tough task but we managed to grab some great deals through personal connections.

Related peeve: People with jackass commentary about how your life will turn to shit after marriage. Hell, mine has been getting better.

Rors would be at your doorstep (or foot of the bed depending on your security) the next morning.

Consumation would be a little DIY, but all I'd need do is find a fluid-proof envelope and get your address.

It's 8.04 AM. I love RLF.

Pet Peeve: too many celebrities have their own perfume. Just saw Keith Urban commercial for his own brand of perfume!

Peeve: Bad Christmas music. The retro lounge "I dreaming of a white Christmas" played at MCI was horrible!

People who buy decommissioned undercover cop cars at police auctions. Seriously, screw all of you people with something very painful. I imagine these people grew up watching auto racing and thinking "man, that pace car job is a pretty sweet freakin' gig. You get out there and everyone has to slow down and follow you. It's so much delicious, delicious power."

I know times are tough. But you can do better. And if impersonating a police officer is a crime, we shouldn't allow people to buy these cars because what else are they doing with them?
