One of the main accusations that gets thrown at grooms’ wedding planning ideas is that, well, they’re often a bit weird. He wants to wear an Elvis jumpsuit, or have thrash metal as the arrival music. You know the sort of thing.
I thought I’d try and mount a defence of why you should listen to some of the groom’s weird wedding ideas…
He Wants to Say His Vows in Klingon
Klingon is an incredibly efficient language. Did you know that it only has one word for the colours green, blue and yellow? Think of how much time that would save when planning the colour scheme of a wedding. APPROVED.
He Wants you to Dress as Princess-Leia-Hutt-Prisoner-Era
Yes, it’s a bit weird that he wants you to dress in a metal bikini and stick Danish pastries on your head. But it’s only because he thinks you would look super-hot. As long as he’s not dressed as Skywalker (that’s her brother, remember?), where’s the harm? If you have to refuse, why not promise it to him for the honeymoon? PART-APPROVED.
He Wants to Arrive in the TARDIS
Firstly, impress him by revealing that you know that TARDIS stands for Time And Relative Dimensions In Space. Then say yes, on the condition that you can have the reception in it afterwards. That thing could comfortably seat 250. APPROVED.
He Wants to Write His Wedding Vows in HTML
Haven’t you heard the news? Geek wedding vows are all the rage. If your bloke is a bit of a nerd then what’s wrong with him expressing himself as only he can – it means it’s from the heart. APPROVED.
He Wants a Team of Ewoks to Re-enact the Forest Moon of Endor Party Scene
Ok, that is odd. You’re either going to have to find really compliant children or go to a specialist casting agency. Either way that’s going to cost you. DENIED.
