My Future Wedding
You may have noticed that Iíve been pretty girly lately. Last week I made a chart about a "boy" I "like". The week before, a Kermit the Frog song about rainbows. Kermit the Frog and rainbows, thereís two things that would make the Top Ten list of things girls like. Boys would be on there too, but they wouldnít be as high on the list as Weddings. Chicks love weddings.
The Invitations Everyone who is invited to my wedding will receive a formal invitation with the time, place, etc. Included in the invitation will be two slips of paper: one, directions to the place of the wedding; two, a piece of paper describing how that person must act for the duration of the wedding. Itíll be a quirk, sort of like the game "Party Quirks" on Whose Line Is It Anyway? Each person invited will get one, and they will have to do it for the whole wedding.
The Dress Code Some of the quirks lend themselves to styles of dress. For example, the person whose quirk is "act shifty" will have to wear a bulky coat and try to steal the silverwear when no oneís looking; and the person who has to play Dracula will have to wear one of those high-collared capes lined with blood-colored satin. Since nobody has to guess what your quirk is, like in the game, itís okay to wear things that will tip off what you are. If your quirk doesnít lend itself to any particular style of dress, you can wear any random costume. I want my wedding to be that place where you have an excuse to wear something you normally donít get to wear, like a shimmery evening gown or a bear suit.
The Preacher Having no particular affiliation with any religion, I feel it wise to dispense with all the usual religious leaders and be married by someone else altogether. They say anyone can become certified to perform marriages online, so itís anyoneís game. Here are some of my ideas for people to marry me and my mystery sweetie:
The Saying of "I Do" I have already mentioned this in my Conversation Heart Messages piece. Here is what I said: "Instead of saying ĎI do,í we will both cough semi-digested ĎI DOí Conversation Hearts into the preacher's outstretched hand, while he looks on with a slightly disgusted look on his face, like how Mr. Feeney looked when Shawn was going to marry Topanga."
The Rings It's my opinion that a wedding ring should be more than just a symbol of unity. It should have some additional use. Like a mood ring, which tells you your mood. This is important! Or maybe a secret decoder ring, so my spouse and I can send each other coded messages. Or a ring with a cyanide capsule in it.
These are all the things Iíve thought of so far for my wedding. I may update this piece if I come up with something new; if so, Iíll alert everyone in the message board. In the meantime, if you were born within a few years of 1985 and this image of the utopian wedding appeals to you, you better start thinking of a really funny way to proposeÖ
