|11:44 pm - Cue romantic music|
So, yesterday I went to altheas and lena_supercat's wedding.
Which was lots of fun - certainly the most entertaining wedding I've been to.
Partially because, for once, I actually knew people beyond a few members of extended family. I probably knew people - including the bride and groom - much better than I normally would. Cue d'aww moments.
Partially because, well, geek wedding FTW!
And partially because of altheas's glorious collapse. Face it, Rob, that's going to be family gossips for you guys for decades. Fainting in the middle of your own wedding...
The reception was much fun, too. With all the sangria and the origami flowers. And the vodka toast. And the tequila toast. And the dance list with songs such as Numa Numa and Skullcrusher Mountain.
I mean, how can you not approve of a wedding where they play Still Alive during the cutting of the wedding cake? Class.
Current Mood: happy
Vodka shots were awesome.
Yeah, but on top of the tequila and the champagne and sangria... by the end I was rather tipsy.
I put a strawberry in my sangria and then once I'd finished that I put the strawberry in my Coke and boy, did it fizz.
I'm not sure why I did it, but it was entertaining.
I think the drinking sangria part of things might have something to do with it.
Only tipsy? I think not :P
Hmm, I think I'm going to need to bring my pirate hat on my immenent Melbourne visit...
It was two days ago, now, I think it's a little late for that.
And there were people worse than me.
"altheas's glorious collapse."
I only heard it was a little faint. That makes it seem a lot worse. Eep!
When I read about the vodka and tequila toast, it made me wonder how you got the booze into toast and why you were eating soggy alcoholic toast at a wedding in the first place.
And then I stopped being silly. I blame this mistake on it being very early in the morning.
On the other hand, maybe this idea has some merit...?
Well, the celebrant had to grab him so he didn't fall over. And he had to go lie down for a bit. (He was fine, it was just heat + lack of fluids/food. And maybe nerves a bit, IDK).
...I don't think I really want to be a part of that experiment.
AND SO I am now wondering what it would be like to have a Code Geass-themed wedding. It would probably involve a lot of Geass BGM, lots of Suzakus and lots of Kallens.
...What would the bride and groom wear?
... I hadn't actually thought of that very much, aside from the bride looking like Kallen and wearing a wine-red evening dress. I guess the groom just has to look like Suzaku? Or they could get him the Zero outfit. VERY MANLY :Db
A COSPLAYING WEDDING!
I have actually seen photos of cosplay weddings in the past. (Not for Code Geass, though...)
