Well, James must have spiked the drinks at his wedding or something, because today I asked the special lady friend to marry me and, against all reason and logic, she said yes.
Congratulations, Flex!

You're waiting until after the wedding to tell Wendy that you're a soulless android that will lead the robot uprising to crush humankind, right?

That's the first draft of my wedding vows actually.

Thanks all!

I got married awhile ago, it was harder than they tell you. There's lots of horrible phone calls to make. It also costs all this money.

I plan on crowdsourcing all of that to this board so I expect everything will go... fine?

That sounds about right.

The fucking catering. We kept getting prices from people until we found one that wasn't stupidly expensive. I think we got like six or seven quotes.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Here's a blanket congratulations to all you chumps.

Our wedding was folded into Ali's parents' anniversary, so we paid jack and squat. It was awesome.

We didn't tell anybody, just went to our local before had a pint and met one of my coworkers (I used to work as a chief mate on a tall ship at a maritime museum, my wife was in the education dept. at the mueseum), he said what you all dressed up for, we replied "getting married". Before long by 1pm we were so loaded we stumbled up to city hall got hitched came back to the bar for an impromptu party from all of our coworkers and friends. It was great and didn't cost a cent!

Book a flight to Puerto Rice, get married in San Juan, then have a backyard barbecue at one of your folk's backyard. Congrats to you my robot acquaintence.

We were along the same lines. We'd been together for 10 years so we invited friends and family to a party and sprung a wedding on them. Whole thing was under $2000.

In the grand tradition of Jewish mothers, Susie had been planning my wedding since 8-6-71. So we just basically showed up.

And then you broke her heart by not finding a nice young doctor.

Nah...I was 33 when I got married. I think she knew that ship had sailed.

How long had you and VH been together at that point?
