- Wedding: January 2012
Darling Husband and I had a perfect wedding in January. It was beautiful, fun, and romantic, and I had a blast. And now I never, ever want to have to plan that thing again. It was fun but waaaaaaaaaaay too much work. I’m never getting divorced if only so that I don’t ever have to plan another wedding.
Anyway, I’m on cast at a renaissance festival. One thing that we do once a year as a character exercise is character camp, a full weekend where we stay in character and camp and have a good time. It’s mostly just us being huge nerds and having a good time, and it doesn’t really have much to do with our performance later during the year, but it’s fun anyway.
A few days ago, one of the coordinators for the camp approached me and said that the scenario they want to have next January is that it’s a big wedding in the village, and he wanted to know if I would be interested in having my character be the bride. Since my character is betrothed to another one (played by my husband), it would work out perfectly.
I said I would be interested and that we can talk about it more later. Darling Husband and I talked about it a bit, and we realized that because of when character camp is, this character wedding would happen within a week of our first anniversary. What that means, basically, is that we would get a second wedding with all our friends (half the people from our wedding will be at this thing) where we don’t have to send out any invitations (people would do it for us), provide the feast or alcohol (someone else is in charge of that), or plan anything whatsoever. Bring on the free party!
Sure, it will technically be the wedding of our two characters, but with the timing, it would totally be a free vow renewal for us. I think Darling Husband and I win, and I am wholly amused by the whole situation.
