*snort* I don't think so. As one of the few guys there who can/will dance (since this wedding WILL be half geeks) I have a feeling you're going to be in HIGH demand! Razz

I just want to post an affirmative "I wuv u" to the board brides-to-be:

TLOML and I have friends that will be getting married in May. TLOML will be a groomsman. The bride-to-be has become...well...obsessive and hysterical and her expectations for everyone else involved in the wedding have come a wee bit ridiculous. For example: they scheduled the wedding for Sunday evening. We'll be coming in from out of town, so this means that we'll have to take off work the following Monday. This wouldn't be a big deal, except, she's also scheduled the rehearsal/rehearsal dinner for friday AFTERNOON. Not evening, afternoon. Which means we'll have to take off another day of work to accomodate their wedding plans. Considering the fact that TLOML have limited vacation days to begin with (due to my cousin's wedding in Florida being a huge production as well), we are a bit miffed, as are the rest of the people coming in from out of town to be in the wedding party. Plus, the tux that they picked out for the groomsmen is $200 to rent. $200 bucks. For something that he doesn't keep.

So, comparing notes on how thoughtful and level-headed you guys have been about your upcoming nuptials, I send hugs and adoration.

You're so sweet, Miss Alaura. Smile

I send in return advice that you go to Vegas. I've been keeping the bridezilla to myself as much as possible, but she's lurking in the back of my head all the freaking time.

She's there in my head too, Miss Joccy. I keep mentally kicking her ass and telling her to shut the hell up.

I wish we lived closer together. We would have such a good time tag-teaming our weddings.

May I suggest that you keep these ninja skills in mind for the actual day *of* cause trust me, you'll need it more then than ever before.

There were a buncha details that got fumbled on our wedding day that really burnt my butter, and an awful confrontations ensued. Despite the support of my precious bridesmaids that day, nothing could have prepared me for the manic pressure before you walk down the aisle.

Best part: the groom had no specific jobs that day, prior to showing up all dolled up, so when the shit hit the fan and I needed a miracle, the one person I trust more than anything took control and fixed it. Thank goodness for that!

One thing I regret is not paying very much attention to my grandmother. I really just assumed that my uncle(grandmother's son) and his family would take care of her, since mum and I were a bit busy. And they didn't. They just sort of left her sitting, dazed and confused and she would have been better off with me, even as crowded as my apartment was.

BUT - my wedding was not very well organised. Smile

(previous page, but just now catching up)

just wanted to say i agree with Apathy. Escher and i had fun choosing music that we liked, knowing that we might very well be the only ones who recognized some songs, but it was *our* wedding after all. You two could have an instrumental of that song, or play a recording with the vocals, and enjoy having something just the two of you "get".

If I thought the dogs would behave, I'd have them in the wedding in a heartbeat.

We all know they wouldn't Razz

Also, I LOVE the man registry. It makes me giggle Smile

I registered at the man registry, but their choices suck ass. I think I'll just create a wishlist on Amazon.

Cultural question: the man-registry talks about including men in the showers, to up the chances of getting cordless tool-kits, etc, as well as towels and stuff.

I understand the concept of the baby shower (although no-one I know has ever had one) - but a wedding shower? Is this in addition to getting wedding presents, or the occasion on which wedding presents are given?

Usually it's a "bridal" shower, when all the bride's friends get together and give her stuff like lingerie, books on being married, etc.
