I’m getting married next year and I have agreed to “do it right” this time instead of just schlepping down to the courthouse and getting it over with like last time.
So apparently there’s got to be this…party…ceremony type…thing. In case you can’t tell, a traditional wedding isn’t really my cup of tea. It’s in the very early planning stages at this point, and all I’ve really determined is that I don’t want to have it in a church. So we’ll find a place, and we’ll serve some food…okay, doesn’t sound too hard…but then I suppose we’ll have to do something with all these people afterward. Does it have to be dancing?
My fiance’ and I don’t listen to any type of music that lends itself well to dancing, and we are darn well not going to subject anyone to the usual(?) sort of crap you might expect to hear at a wedding (I dunno, Whitney Houston or something?) I could perhaps get down and boogie if it were somebody *else’s * wedding, but I feel that if I can get through the ceremony and reception without barfing from stress it’ll be a miracle. The hiring of a band or a deejay just seems like a pain in the ass I could do without (as does lots of this other stuff, but I digress).
Is there any way I can avoid the whole issue, say by providing something *else * that old people can do?
