My FH is a huge fan of Star Trek. He has been going on and on about having Betazoid (sp?) wedding, which I guess is where everyone is nude? At first I thought he was kidding, but he recently told me he was absolutely serious and his dream wedding is to get married naked.
Has anyone ever heard of someone doing this? I’m not sure how I feel about it (except that I’d need to spend a lot of time in the gym over the next 9 months LOL). Our families are pretty laid back, but still I’m not sure if they’d be offended. We’d probably have to cut our guest list way way back.
I’m just not sure what I think. This really is his dream wedding, and he is such a wonderful man that I do want to make him happy!

Oh my goodness. No way ever that I would have a completely naked wedding! Is there anything else that he would like that’s a compromise? Like costumes.

This is the most interesting post I’ve seen so far!
I think it’s great that you want help your FI attain his dream of getting married nude, however it seems like you aren’t really into it, which means you might end up regretting it sooner or later.
A possible solution: Just you and FI fly to a warm beach and get married in the nude! Then fly home and have a second wedding or just reception with clothing and all the guests that you want! That way you get the best of both worlds!

Seriously? I’m sorry but I’m always skeptical when someone’s first post is something so….dramatic….
But, really, eek! I say “just no” to family and/or friends staring at my, ahem, well endowed lady parts. Plus, i’m not sure my SO could handle staring at me naked at the alter without having naughty thoughts about me. Which of course, would lead to other super awkward turtle moments.
I like Soon2beeMrsM’s more, er, private idea….
Even if your families aren’t prudes they may not appreciate you letting it all hang out.

Definitely would never consider this! Yikes!

Wow, that would make for a memorable wedding! If everyone involved is okay with it, then why not?
On the other hand… what is your dream wedding? And do you want people to be there that would be offended by a nude wedding (say, your grandparents or people of that nature)? I think it is always best to compromise, but as mentioned before, maybe you can get married on a beach in the nude or take a honeymoon/one year anniversary trip where you renew your vows in the nude?

I second MissSoon2be- if this is really what he wants the absolute most I would do is have a private ceremony on a beach somewhere, just you and him and a necessary witness (if really, really necessary. and blind.) and then do a normal wedding later.

Wow. I would never do that. More importantly, I can’t imagine any of your guests would really want to see that. I imagine it would be very awkward for them. If he is serious, maybe you guys could do a private nude wedding with just you two and a witness, then have a subsequent wedding with all your friends and family there…and clothing!

Ok, I have to admite, I think getting married nude is a very cool idea. Joining your families and futures in a natural, open state. The issue is whether it is what BOTH of you want for your wedding. Are you willing to drastically cut the guest list so that you feel comfortable? Is it really what you want too? I like the ideas of having a personal ceramony in the nude, prior to the wedding.
Another idea I had was to make a screen of silk, muslin, leaves, grass, whatever material you like. You and your fiance could begin the ceramony robed, then pull the screen between yourselves and your guests and disrobe for the nude portion of the ceramony. Your guests will be able to hear your vows, but your bodies will be seperated. You can either emerge nude and married, or dress again before stepping out to soak up the love and well-wishes.

I like the idea of a private ceremony. We’ve been kicking around the idea of eloping anyway (FH’s job is shaky right now and weddings are expensive!). Just not sure it’s what I want. I guess I could still wear my veil, right? Just nothing else. LOL! I have to give it some more thought, and no, I am not a troll. I have been reading this boards for a few months but have not really had anything to post until now.

I agree with everyone else; it’s great that you want to help fulfill his dream wedding, but it is also YOUR wedding and if you aren’t comfortable being nude or don’t want to have to cut certain guests, you should try to compromise.
Aside from that, you are obviously not as into Star Trek as he is and if your guests aren’t fans of Star Trek either, maybe the point/ origin of the of the nude ceremony will be lost on them. I would try to think of other (maybe more subtle) ways you could incorporate his love of Star Trek. My fiance is a fan of Star Wars, so I am making cufflinks out of Star Wars Lego men for him and all the groomsmen.
