I thought that was cute.  What comes across loud and clear is he wants to go to a wedding that’s really just an excuse for a big party.  I happen to feel the same way (I think toasts are the only thing we’re doing that’s on the list and *hopefully* no one will start talking about soiling themselves or stomach pumping), but I can understand how there’s plenty of people out there who want their weddings to be a little more than an open bar raging party.

I think he came off as a little smug, but mostly had a sense of humor and was saying nothing more than “I just want a party.”

Absolutely hilarious! I loved it. Just passed it along to friends. Some of the lines were classic-love the Antique Road Show line. LOL

lemondrop.com is a snark-fest, and it’s hilarious.  Basically, it’s meant to offend your delicate sensibilities…all the while making you laugh.  You’re not meant to take anything on that website seriously.  If you do, you’re the people they’re making fun of.  Relax, stop taking life (and yourself) so seriously, and enjoy an opportunity to laugh at some total nonsense.

This cracked me up.  And I believe it is the precise list my Fiance and I wrote out and outlawed our first week of being engaged.  Preparties- one shower that contained my sister in law and my mom at their insistance, Bachelor/Bachelorette party in vegas just because all our friends want an excuse to go to vegas.  Other than that… none. No wedding party.  A 15 minute ceremony by a minister who used to be a radio broadcaster.  No bouquet toss, no toasts.  Only kids are our 5 neices and nephews (couldn’t get out of that one) and they will have a babysitter onsite upstairs.Video? Oh that is a no no when you have an open bar from my experience.  And I think by the end of the night it will be my mom playing the spoons…

We’ll definitely have some eejit trying to play the spoons at some stage in the night…

Although everyone’s paying for their own drink, so hopefully the kids don’t get pancaked!

I do feel uncomfortable about the gay marriage thing – I’m hugely liberal, but am getting married in a catholic church. I don’t quite know how to reconcile that one!

No bad toasts, fingers crossed, and def no bouquet toss! Although I’ll prob hear lots of Whhhhyyyyyyy???!! about that too, CupcakeSprinkles!

Hee, he’s totally right. He should have tossed in the Chicken Dance, the dollar dance, the clinking on glasses to make the couple kiss, and the garter toss. They’re all soooo bad. We went to a wedding last year for SO’s brother and they did a grand march, followed by a first dance, followed by a father/daughter dance, followed by a mother/son dance, followed by a ‘bridal party only’ dance, followed by a freaking dollar dance, followed by a bouquet toss, followed by a garter toss. The rest of us sat, for literally 1 hour while all of these things took place. I was forced out onto the floor for the bouquet toss and was the ONLY adult female even though I was not the only unwed adult female and SO and have been living together for 3 years. I felt like I was 12. I wanted to kick that bride. He should write more of these!

this guy knows nothing.  I’d like to see his wedding.  I found this article annoying and whiney!

I thought it was funny. But probably mostly because I am trying to avoid all of those things. Only ones I might be guilty of: 

parties? Well we didn’t have an engagement party and the rehearsal dinner is just for those in the wedding. I am having a shower and we’ll have bachelor/ette parties

religion? Our ceremony won’t be long but it will be somewhat religious. We’re trying to tone it down but my aunt is a minister and our officiant… only so much we can do there

toasts? Not my area. I think our friends know better… but i’m not tackling anyone for a mic either.

I saw this earlier and thought it was great. I agree with most of what this person says- including ceremonies being super long. I think you can have a meaningful religious ceremony without subjecting your guests to a full service. As for the children thing- I didn’t have kids at my wedding, but I can see where people want to include them. I’m on board with the bouqet toss and the garter removal.Overall, love the post.
