Is there a place where you can get hitched, and also order a steak? Being a guy, it's not something I think a ton about. I have to admit, I like the idea of skipping all of the expense and just going to Vegas or a justice of the peace or something.

It always came as a shock to me that a lot of people were always interested in "who I like" in high school youth group.

In the past I think I had people rooting for me to find someone. It hasn't exactly fallen off but I think there is enough interest in the family that I would feel pretty selfish not having a large wedding. Sounds pretentious but it'd mostly be for them.

Maybe my standards are too high or maybe the Lord has something "public" in mind. I want to give a testimony to marriage that much I know. To declare loudly what it is and what the word says that it is. What that will look like I have no idea. As I'm typing this I somehow have the marriage of the bride in mind. Not sure if that's error or not but I want it to send a message.

It's not about what I want, it's about what I need, and what HE wants. Beyond that I'm pretty open. I've always had this "fantastical picture" in my mind. It kind of disappeared lately through some apathy but it's good to know it's still there, so thanks for the thread.


I'm pretty sure I need to be married, I almost don't want to at this point. Tis quite odd. I'm content with singleness but also something else. Not sure what it is.

We flew to Las Vegas for our wedding and a short honeymoon. Our nuptials were performed in our room at the Hilton by a local minister with two bell hops and a maid for witnesses.
A few people I know over here, did the same thing.

No idea depends on what was decided. I presume it would have two witnesses and solemn vows. But thats about it.

However, Im not going to sign my life away just yet. Ive already promised God to serve Him and Hes never indicated that I need marriage. Maybe if God forbid both my parents died but even then He never said Lanolin you need to seek someone out NOW or you'll end up old and lonely.

I have been to gretna green, its a tourist attraction that stages mock weddings. Im doing a business course where the teacher has her own business, and it too is mock weddings for the LBTQ crowd. Apparently those with two disposable incomes will be willing to pay anything just to get married. Which is now legal in my country.

You can still get married their for real, no doubt some might also do mock up weddings,
maybe to scare the living day lights out of their others half.

They were more than OK with that especially since it was her second marriage and my third.

Our original plan was to have Lynx, who is a minister, performed the nuptials in Tennessee (we live in Florida) but when he graciously declined we quickly changed our plans. It was sort of like an elopement. We both knew what we wanted, had prayed about this, and also had an extensive pre-marital counseling which showed that we were very compatible with each other. We got married on Thanksgiving Day in 2014 and have not looked back since.

When my younger brother was planning to get married a second time a few years after his divorce he invited me to attend. The thing was that the date scheduled was during a very busy period in my place of employment and that I didn't want to miss any work. So I made him a deal. I would not be attending his second wedding but I promise to attend his third. I keep that promise a few years later.

I believe that any wedding arrangements are really for the bride and not the groom, especially if it is her first (and hopefully only) wedding. I made a deal with my soon to be wife too, she would consent to be married in Las Vegas if I would drop my insistence that of having Elvis officiating at the Little Wedding Chapel. It all worked out in the end.

That Elvis thing would've been cool though.
Oh didn’t know that, maybe Lynx can mock up some CC weddings. Hahah

I suppose you can have a bbq wedding, instead of gifts, ask guests to turn up with
steak.

I wasn’t interested in anyone at my high school, it was an all girls school!

Hey, it wasn't MY fault! My little local minister's license does not permit doing weddings or funerals. :p
How about baby Christening? If not then perhaps you should hand in back the license. After all street/youtube preachers don't need a license?

Are you trying to be cheap? That ain't right. If the lady wants to cut the expenses, then so be it. But Sir, it's not your call to make.

Marriages and funerals are not why I applied for a license anyway, so I'm not going to bother.

My business teacher said she learned that theres more money to be made in elopements than any other kind of wedding.

Which is kind of strange cos you would think people would elope in order to SAVE money.

But then think about it vegas will make more out of elopements than any church would that doesnt even charge for a ceremony.

We had ours in April before the Texas heat started up for real. But it so happened our wedding day was one of the coolest days in the month and it was a little windy. Worked out for us because being all dressed up can cause a sweat lol.
