My husband and I went to a friend’s wedding this past weekend. We had no idea what to expect, because it was a pirate themed wedding and all the guests were asked to dress in pirate attire.
This is the first wedding I’ve ever attended where someone actually objected when the minister asked if anyone had cause why these two people should not be married. Someone (dressed as a pirate wench) walked up to the couple and said she objected. Of course, Captain Jack Sparrow (who was officiating) pulled out a gun and promptly shot her, and someone carried her from the room. Then he asked if anyone else objected, and of course, no one did!
Honestly, it was was very interesting wedding, but it was also VERY touching and lovely. They wrote their own vows and they were so sweet. The whole thing was so them, and absolutely perfect.
Here’s a picture of the minister and the wench who objected. Sorry it’s blurry. It was dark in the room and I took it with my cell phone.
Here’s their wedding cake. The topper was made from a pirates of the caribbean sprinkler.

WOW, that sounds like a blast! Was there plenty of rum to drink? (That guy really looks like Johnny Depp too!)

There was PLENTY of rum. In fact, the groom said they had a ton left over. In his speech, he asked the guests not to drink all the rum because they wanted some for later, and when I saw him the next day, I said he probably shouldn’t have said that!
He really did look like Johnny Depp. All the female guests were drooling over him. I know I couldn’t stop staring at him. He was so hot looking!!! Fortunately, my husband understood!!!

That sounds like a blast!! I have only been to one themed wedding, and that was my mom’s. It was a luau wedding and it was so much fun! I hope to go to another one someday, a pirate one sounds fun (plus I love rum!!)

Most of the guests dressed as pirates. The parents and grandparents of the bride and groom dressed as pirates. The caterers and bartenders dressed as pirates. It was really well done, and it was a lot of fun. When we were putting on our pirate gear, we said it felt wrong to be dressing like pirates for a wedding, but once we got there, it made total sense, and the people who didn’t dress up were the ones who felt out of place.
Here’s a better picture…

I’ve never been to a themed wedding, but that’s pretty awesome to have Captain Jack Sparrow (the officiant) marry you!
ETA: I mean you as in general – I know it was a friend’s wedding! Haha!

It was a fun wedding. I wish we could have stayed for the whole reception, but we had two to go to that evening.

Scary, because here if someone objects even as a joke you actually have to stop the marriage for a significant period. Lucky Jack Sparrow was in on it 😛

I edited the picture. Now it’s more clear.
