    I voted no, but you can take that with a grain of salt because I absolutely despise that show, so that affected my vote lol.

    I think for it to work and not really make people … offended? you would need an officiant that could do it humorously and get the point across that it is a joke.

    I’m guessing the person who got you second-guessing said something along the lines of ‘it will make everyone think you won’t take marriage seriously’…pffft

    I’m a ‘do what makes you happy’ type of person. I would laugh out loud if I saw this in person.

    I went to a wedding where they did some of the ceremony like the scene from Princess Bride. I’d say 10% of the people got it, and the other 90% were totally clueless and didn’t think it was funny at all.

    The ceremony is 10000000% aboout YOU and HIM. The reception is for guest-pleasing.  Most guests  a) can’t hear you,  b) aren’t listening or c) don’t care either way, when’s the bar open?

    Do what yo want, especially if it’s subtle.

    I say no. Think it’ll confuse your guest. We are a super silly couple & would still think it was odd. Not into funny at ceremonies.

    What they said. I hate when people try to deter the couple from what they want. It is YOUR wedding. Contrary to what some people believe, this is not about your guests. I would totally do it. Seinfeld was a hugely popular show and I would suspect most people would get it, but if they don’t who cares? I would definitely get it and think that its hilarious. Putting something in the program is smart, as well as making sure the officiant has the humor to pull something like that off, like the PP stated. If the person is really not into it then it might not come off quite as funny.
