In theory, nerdy wonderfulness. In reality it was kind of creepy. It would have been cuter to have a mini Frodo do it. I

Anything LOTR kind of freaks me out, I’d be nervous the entire time haha

Aaah that was on our Aussie version of Four Weddings… It went on entirely too long. I get that it was “them” but gollum carried on for way too long and actually took away from the seriousness of the ceremony IMO.

@chasesgirl:  That’s what I was thinking.  LOTR is awesome, but Gollum is creepy.

We love us some LOTR. We have a directors cut marathon at least once a month. But that was SO creepy. Definitely would have dressed a little one up as Frodo instead. He IS the ring bearer, after all.

I thought it was great, but it was a bit of a show stealer. Love the idea though! I am a total LOTR geek though lol

I think it’s a little too goofy for a wedding. I would rather keep that stuff for the reception. But I would take gollum over an uber long serious 4 hour ceremony lol.

I really like the idea, though the guy was MAYBE a little creepy! Frodo would definitely be a better choice…or maybe two little cute Merry and Pippins! But I definitely do love couples that interject their geekiness into their weddings: I’m a huge nerd myself in many ways and will be doing a theme wedding (though it’ll be Disney, not LOTR).

I LOVE Tolkien (I’m actually reading through The Silmarillion right now:)) but that way just too creepy and awkward for me lol.

Although I did put some of his work in our wedding…My moh is like the Sam to my Frodo so I’m making her a bracelet with a quotes from LotR specifically about those two.

We’re seating people to “Concerning Hobbits”.

I chose an elven like comb for my hair.

I’m working a tiny quote or something from it into my vows :).

I’m getting “Not all those who wander are lost.” tattooed on my shoulder blade.

And I actually do a decent Gollum impression lol.

So ya I <3 Tolkien but you won’t be seeing Gollum at my wedding.
