Previous Entry | Next Entry

this is the first public entry where I'm saying that marc and I are officially getting married sometime. and even though I know last weekend's entries were a little crazy because of family and all, now we're pretty much 100% stoked about it and coming up with all sorts of plans.

I'm going to try not to gush about it too much because when I was a strong single happenin' woman, nothing made me puke faster than reading people's wedding plan entries. hell, now that I'm doing it myself, other people's entries still have that effect. so wedding entries will be limited.

but I did want to say that my parents seem cool with the idea of us running of to vegas, which we're seriously considering. Well take that back... we were going to just go for our church here because it's nice and all, but the more I talked to people the more it seems like vegas is a great place to have a wedding if you (like me) don't like weddings. it's a hands-down way to keep it small, easy, and planned for you.

plus, I found out (duh duh duh!) that they do weddings at the star trek bar!!!

marc said he wanted to dress like a tribble. yesssss!

just kidding mom :)

maybe :)

no, I'm kidding.

you hope, huh?

no seriously, I'm kidding.

(about the tribble costume)

Guess a Vega wedding saves you the "planning" step of a wedding

We got hitched in Vegas. Cupid's Chapel gets an absolute A+ for service, price, atmosphere, and the willingness of the pastor/jop to do whatever you want for the service. (and if you're so inclined, they have both Elvis and Tom Jones impersonators). If you want, I'll see if I can dig up my old research from various chapels and what not.

that'd be awesome! the chapels are a lot less money than the big hotels but there are so many of them I wouldn't know where to start looking. I'll try to get my e-mail address working again.

I personally think a Vegas wedding would be a ton of fun. And sooo much easier.

Aww, congrats, everything was sounding rather bleak before; but now, nerdy wedding. :)

Yeah I kind of wish we had done a Vegas wedding. At that time in my life though, very few of our friends would have been able to afford to make it out there since they were all either still in school, or just getting out of school. If I were getting married NOW I'd be considering it a lot more. Plus Vegas is so much more you than formal and traditional.

That said, I've seen church wedding with Star Wars music incorporated, so you can still have a geek wedding in a church.

Word.

The way I see it, I'm inviting a lot of Kansas City people, and if they want to come they'll either have to drive three hours to Wichita or fly three hours to Vegas. With Wichita, you'd get my wedding plus... wichita. With Vegas, you'd get my wedding plus... VEGAS! Which half the people I know try to make it to yearly anyway, you know? So I know some people won't be up for traveling and that's fine, but some of those wouldn't want to drive to Wichita anyway, so I don't think it's that big a deal.

Viva Las Vegas
Hey, I already checked out weddings in Vegas. I love the Bellagio wedding packages. You and Marc can get married anywhere you want. Your mom and dad are going to the Bellagio. We should talk!
Love,
Mom

Re: Viva Las Vegas
Leave it to my mom to pick the most expensive place on the strip!

I'll call you tomorrow or Saturday :)

If I ever get married it'll be with a very untraditional theme. Like a funeral (laughing at ourselves), or gothy, or metal-ly. It'll kick ass.

So, I've been seeing a lot of Marc lately. Where have YOU been?!

I know we are really just internet friends who occasionally see each other out in the real world but if Star Trek has anything to do with your wedding, I BETTER be invited!

p.s. I saw Dustin Diamond of Saved By the Bell fame holding hands with some blondie at the Star Trek casino in Vegas.

Nothing wrong with being a strong woman and also enjoying a wedding! :P

Congrats, go have fun! Don't let the parents or family hijack your wedding plans!

"We can make it so."
HAH!!!

I say go for it. Even the most expensive wedding package there is 5-10x cheaper than your average American wedding.

And I for one will have no problem reading your wedding planning ramblings if it's for a Star Trek wedding.
