Would You Like To Come To Our Wedding?

Asked by sccrowell (3503points) May 29th, 2009 from iPhone

HEY EVERYONE!!!! Today is the BIG DAY and WE REALLY REALLY want you to come and share this awesome day with us. You don’t have to dress up as it’s going to to be kind of casual (this will be the third time for both WTF and I).

Now, what I need to know, is how to make this happen! Any suggestions? I mean besides having someone texting what we say. Any real time method? What do you think?
WE DONT HAVE A LOT OF TIME =( THIS WILL BE GREAT!!!
A Virtual Wedding…

I’ve heard of Skype, I’m unsure of how it works though.

btw, i’m in my pjs. classy

rhector63's avatar

yes, try Skype its pretty awsome

sccrowell's avatar

What is skype, how does it work?

rhector63's avatar

well, basically you get to video cameras, log on to this site, it should be free to join(have you ever watched Opra she uses this alot) and they connect the cameras digatally and then well u get married in your case, its just like video chatting

augustlan's avatar

I’m there in spirit. Congratulations, you two! :D

Judi's avatar

If you don’t have video cameras, get a lap top with a camera. Have the preacher or officiant hold it so we can see you!!

rhector63's avatar

@Judi
that might work also and a whole lot easier

wildflower's avatar

You guys rock!! Whichever way you decide to do this, it’ll be amazing and I’m definitely there in spirit :)

Jeruba's avatar

Have a laptop open to the Fluther home page and place it among your guests and witnesses. Have your picture taken with it. Post it on our pictures page. We’ll all be smiling behind it.

[Edit] When a member of my group had to miss a special event, we dialed him in on the IP phone and included the phone in the group picture. Later I PhotoShopped his photo onto the screen of the phone so it looks like his image was there with us.

Congratulations! I am happy for you both!

I guess I missed it by now… please do link us to some photos when you have the opportunity ;-)

sccrowell's avatar

Hi everyone :)

It looks like everyone is having a wonderful time. I hate to disappoint everyone, but due to major family pressure, which I have succumbed to. (My daughter and mother both of which reside in Bakersfield) said they would be extremely heartbroken nor would they forgive me, if they were not allowed to attend the ceremony, even a small civil one.

There are some other issues as well:

1. I wanted to get a new dress but have not had the time to
even look.
2. The ring I got for wtf (Which I might add is totally
amazing) did not fit and needs to be sized.
3. Plus I wanted to go tan so to look my best in my dress.
(yes I know, VANITY)

WTF says, “I do not require a tan and suggested I apologize to my family.” As far as the dress and ring, wtf said, “he will marry me immediately in the nude and allow me to place the ring on his pinkie (for now)”. Isn’t that just like him to say that… I told him, I didn’t think that would go over well at City Hall, not that wtf is not beautiful in the nude.
So, wtf has reluctantly agreed to postpone the wedding so I can get everything in order. He has given me 30 days to do it all. I believe I will only need a week.

Looks like I will be a “June bride” after all.
Hopefully we will figure out a way to have you all there with us. If you would still like to come. I know, WE BOTH WANT YOU THERE..

PS: wtf went and got naked anyhow… I have to go

Just Kidding!!

ru2bz46's avatar

I don’t need to hear about all y’all’s clothing status. WTF? ;-)

chyna's avatar

Happy pre-honeymoon!

Dog's avatar

AWESOME CHOICE!

Truly this wedding is so romantic and special that only the best will do.

The day should not be rushed and we are happy to wait!

So a toast of champaign to the bride-to-be and groom and to the pending nuptials!

chyna's avatar

@Dog You always say just the right thing.

omfgTALIjustIMDu's avatar

I’m so there!!! And so glad you postponed it so I can be better prepared (aka more clothed than WTF, which I happen to not be at the moment). Can’t wait!! Mazal tov!!!!

chyna's avatar

What? Is everyone naked at the moment but me?

hearkat's avatar

@chyna: not yet, but I’m about to be

Bluefreedom's avatar

@chyna. Get naked. Now. You know you want to.

chyna's avatar

Well, if you insist…

Jeruba's avatar

Yes, @chyna. Hurry up. Now send pictures.

augustlan's avatar

< Doing the nakey dance.

chyna's avatar

Doing Nakey dance with Augustlan. I am neked!

Dog's avatar

It appears I overdressed for the occasion. ;)

chyna's avatar

@Jeruba Aren’t you a little overdressed?

elijah's avatar

Why is it every time we try to plan this wedding it turns into drunkeness and debauchery? Can no one keep their clothes on for one freakin day?!
Yeah right, like I’m not drunk and naked too.

Aethelwine's avatar

Now we have more time to plan for the actual party wedding!

nakey pillow fight anyone?

elijah's avatar

Only if they’re ring bearers pillows. It is a wedding you know.

Aethelwine's avatar

I have a feeling the bride and groom won’t mind. :)

augustlan's avatar

Nakey pillow fights will send the boys right over the edge. :D

Bluefreedom's avatar

If we’re going to do this, the women aren’t allowed to specifically target the men’s jewels. Even a full on hit with a pillow hurts down below.

elijah's avatar

Don’t worry, we have ice.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Where there is ice, there is probably alcohol. Any chance of getting a Rum and Coke? It will help numb the pain and get me more in the mood. Who the hell am I kidding? I’m always in the mood for anything naked.

elijah's avatar

Body shots!

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Blowjobs! The beverage…

Bluefreedom's avatar

Screaming Orgasms! The beverage and the real thing…

Randy's avatar

I’LL HAVE TWO, PLEASE! =D

elijah's avatar

I don’t drink shots with silly names (except swedish fish, cherry bombs or royal flush).
I’m a crown or goose girl.

DrasticDreamer's avatar

Now I want a cherry bomb!

Randy's avatar

I vowed when I was 13 to NEVER turn down a blowjob!

susanc's avatar

This is definitely the funnest wedding I’ve ever planned to be at. Wow. I’m taking
all my clothes off NOW and I’m not putting them on again until after I fly home from…
where’d you say?

augustlan's avatar

Somehow this has turned into a hedonistic wedding. Which is all good. ;-)

breedmitch's avatar

throws rice

andrew's avatar

Wow, look what happens late at night. This really is off the rails. You all should go in the chatroom!

When/where is the wedding?

cookieman's avatar

^ Dammit!! Dad’s home! ^

augustlan's avatar

Bad mod is busted. :(

bythebay's avatar

@augustlan: Don’t worry, I heard there are no mod lashings on Saturdays…you’re safe!

ru2bz46's avatar

Why is it that as soon as I get my clothes off, the parents always show up?

chyna's avatar

Augustlan started it!

Dr_C's avatar

so…. is there going to be a skype aspect or some other way we can virtually attend?
Congrats to the happy couple! June weddings are the best.

Dog's avatar

We could always, if all else fails, have the vows in the chat room. (I am referring to after the actual vows- I cannot imagine the lovers looking on a computer screen instead of each others eyes as they dedicate their lives to one another. )

Here is how it could possibly work. All guests and bride and groom logged onto chat. The chat announcement will advise no discussion from anyone until they are pronounced man and wife with any offender immediately booted.

Before the event both the bride and groom will each provide a random number between 1–50 and during the virtual garter and flower toss the singles will type random numbers till one hits it.

I volunteer to be a virtual usher and help with bouncing if needed during the event. :)

Dog's avatar

I just wanted to add that the chosen numbers would be only told to an impartial volunteer and nobody but the bride, groom and volunteer would know them. (I would have clarified this in the above post but I am on my iPhone and editing questions on long responses is too complicated. )

Dr_C's avatar

@Dog the iPhone came back to life?

Dog's avatar

@Dr_C Nope like a desperate junkie needing a fix I cashed in the change jar, pooled all my other funds and borrowed the remainder to get a refurbished iPhone. Pathetic really.

Dr_C's avatar

@Dog i totally get it.. i love my iPhone and would be depressed if something happened to it… woudl waste no time in replacing it

chelseababyy's avatar

@sccrowell Your mom is in Bako?! Bakersfield ftw. My boyfriend is from there and I lived there for six months

Jeruba's avatar

Naked underneath, @chyna. Naked underneath.

Never forget that every figure of power and authority is naked underneath and has no special dignity while brushing his teeth and attending to personal business.

Line from a 1965 Bob Dylan song: “But even the President of the United States sometimes must have to stand naked. ”

aprilsimnel's avatar

@Jeruba – And there’s a lot of people around the world who are probably imagining the current POTUS that way right this second! :D

sccrowell's avatar

Yes, family is In Bakersfield… My mother, brother, Eldest daughter and seven grandchildren…

Hey Andrew,
Have you obtained you Lic to perform marriages yet?

Judi's avatar

Is the wedding in Bakersfield?

Judi's avatar

I had the strangest dream last night that we were all meeting in front of Home Depot on Rosedale Higway in Bakersfield waiting for the
wedding to start. Is that weird or what? I think I have to much fluther in my mind.

sccrowell's avatar

@judi LOL!!! What’s funny is I have to go to Home Depot after work this evening… As for where the wedding is going to take place? That will depend on the day. I’m shooting for Thursday June 4 and that would be the Valley. The heat is too hard on wtf.

whatthefluther's avatar

Sweetheart….I can take the heat….I’m still sitting here naked! Hurry home to me…wtf

Dr_C's avatar

@sccrowell and @whatthefluther i totally love you guys…. I really do… but the whole sitting here naked thing…. kind of an over-share.

Are you guys going to let us attend via skype?

chyna's avatar

Are we getting naked again? Yes!

cyn's avatar

where are the pillows?

whatthefluther's avatar

satin pillow cases, please…I insist…wtf

Aethelwine's avatar

Quick! Dad’s coming home soon. We better get our clothes on.

cyn's avatar

@whatthefluther
satin pillows it is! :)

sccrowell's avatar

I’m Blushing

whatthefluther's avatar

@sccrowell…stop blushing and meet me in bed….wtf

sccrowell's avatar

Stop that… (eyes rolling) There are young and very impressionable ears or perhaps I should say eyes reading… Well, probably not this thread… But???

chelseababyy's avatar

@sccrowell I think the young ones can handle it. There’s stuff on Fluther that’s much much worse.

Randy's avatar

@sccrowell Everyone has to learn sometime… Right?

Dr_C's avatar

@sccrowell As long as no visual aides are involved….

chyna's avatar

Oh wait.. (perks up) Visual Aides?

cyn's avatar

@sccrowell How old is young?
