So do we start a wedding thread or make this The proposal and wedding thread?

Wedding dress is now bought but the missus is still insisting I will NOT be getting married in my trainers

Outrageous. No member of The Pixel Faces wears tidy black shoes. NONE OF THEM.

On that note - need a wedding band?

I'm on the lookout for a film-loving vicar/priest. Does anyone know where I would find one? We know an Evangelical minister, but he isn't licensed to do weddings on his own, so we need to either have a registrar present, or a "proper" priest. As a Catholic I wouldn't mind a priest, but Beth really doesnt want one. We've kind of agreed though, that if we can find a catholic/CoE priest willing to perform the ceremony we will.

So.

Where does one find a film loving priest? Do you think empire would put a letter from me in their letters page, asking for one? This is all with a view to do the wedding at a cinema.

Most registrars will do the marriage ceremony as you would like it to be. Just check your local registrars and ask them.

The venue isnt licensed tho, so we need a licensed priest-type to do it. Would the registrar be able to do it in an unregistered venue?

So which one of you is doing a Star Wars themed wedding? Just think how awesome it would be for your soon to be bride to walk down the aisle to the Imperial Death March. The best man would look swell in a stormtrooper outfit and wouldn't need to worry about the rings as they'd be kept by R2-D2, ready to shoot-out from his light-sabre launcher as and when required. Chewie (the mother-in-law) would sound out a loud cry as priest Jar Jar asks "Do yousa take thisa women to be your wedded wifey?"

If you want film themes, can I recommend you peruse the Blade Runner soundtrack. Then you get good film + good music.

I did

And then they just had to put up with Eurovision at the meal.

No, it would need to be registered. It's worth the building looking into getting a registration though, as then they'd be able to do weddings whenever.

When my brother-in-law got married, he, his best man, the ushers, the father of the groom, the father of the bride, and I - the musician - all wore matching black suits, black shirts, dark maroon ties and waistcoats.... and matching black Converse hi-tops. Seriously, it not only looked cool-as-frak, but also still looked smart, because they were matching. Well worth going down the "matching trainers" route, and adapt to your footwear of choice.

Adambatman - glad my suggestion worked out! That looks like a lovely venue, too.

Elab - Blade Runner soundtrack? At your wedding? Your husband is a lucky, lucky guy...  Not so sure about the Eurovision bit though...

In fact, here's a subtly edited picture to demonstrate. Identities have been maintained. The little guy is my son, not a dwarf.

Ive told future Mrs B about this Homer and she is less than happy with you. She is now demanding to see the picture to see how 'silly' it looks. However it may plant the seed of suit+trainer=cool in her mind.

Yes. My groom's speech even featured a line from Pride and Prejudice to appease her. I'm pathetic...

(Althought the table names were based on much loved couples from film and literature - Westley and Buttercup, Romeo and Juliet, Darcy and Elizabeth, Wallace and Gromit, etc.)

I've been asked to be my best mate's best man.

He doesn't want a huge stag night as he wants everyone to be able to come along... so no Las Vegas trip.

He's thinking camping, pubs and crazy golf down by the beach somewhere. Simple. Should be easy enough to do... I'm just thinking how I'm going to get a stripper in the middle of nowhere.

I walked out to The Throne Room from the end of Star Wars. It's suitably wedding-march-like.

Although I did compose a piece for my brother-in-law's bride to walk down the aisle to which was an original composition fanfare, but included nods to themes from Star Wars, Indy, Jaws, etc.

Elab, can I ask which track by Vangelis you walked down to? Cos that is seriously awesome. I mean, seriously cool.

The Love theme of course  (I love sax). The CD I copied had Blues and Memories of Green looped on it to play in the background for the rest of ceremony.

I do actually have friends who went down the aisle to a Eurovision track - they'd gone for the instrumental. It was really lovely though so I think only a couple of us recognised it! (As opposed to the one they came back down to which just made everyone smile - Booms and Bangs etc!).

Yey, congratulations! 

How did she react? Did it rain?



Me and my brother-in-law went out on xmas day to collect some chairs and went about our secret mission. We went to the country park/forest behind my sisters house and walked up the steps at the side which overlooks the snow covered farmland. I decided to place the log in a tree which could only be seen if you looked right at it.

When we got back to my sisters busy house I gave it 20 minutes (in which time ma Borstal was already stressing about getting the xmas dinner ready) so I said to Liz that I was getting a bit wound up so did she want to come for a walk with me for 20 minutes. Luckily she said yes so we set off to the forest. As we were walking up the steps I said to her that its a pity there wasn't any logs about as we could have got my sister some for her fire. I pointed out that there was one on some branches and she went to look and said 'look, theres something written on it' and she started to read it 'Liz....oh look it says Liz!....will....you.............' (confused look on her face). As she turned round I was down on my knee and I asked her. The scene was perfect, in front of us was the snow covered forest and behind us a blanket of snow on the farm fields which was slightly foggy.

She was in total shock and filled up with tears. I phoned my BIL and asked him to come and pick us up. Then when we got back I waited until Ma Borstal came downstairs and said look at this log I found. And when she read it her jaw dropped to the floor, cue many tears and some glasses of champagne!

FTW.


That's the shit right there....

Thanks YFU.

I have a honeymoon/travel related question. We both want a honeymoon in NY and can go the first week in June however the problem we have is that neither of us have credit cards plus we are asking anyone buying us gifts to give us money towards the journey.

Any ideas on how to get round the issue?

Get a credit card...?

If it's paid off every month, and you only use it for purchases (ie, never withdraw cash from it) then there should be no interest.

Oh, some charge if you use it abroad, though. Or charge interest on abroad usage. Worth checking out.

Or get one of those gift mastercards that you front load with money. Get all the people to put their money on the card instead of giving you cash and you're away with a stack of money on a card.
