What a palaver! I am trying to find the simplest, least goofy form of ceremony for when we hit Bath with amazing event (4 people) that will be the wedding of the er.....day.
I went to one last year and was amazed at how bleeking complicated it is! Having married in church last time (I was an actual Christian then), I assumed that something non-religious would be a lot less sloppy. They keep banging on about love etc., which to me is a private thing and nothing to do with the State. I know it's a contract, which is why I am keen to indulge in it, as I shall need financial protection in me old age. But, really. At least I shall not buy a few frock or anything so banal. Mind you, I have not mentioned any of this to Chris, who may have other ideas. I can see him turning up in morning dress, in which he does look good. He says I can't wear Docs and jeans, though!
Not wanting to speak out of turn but I am sure all us Lidl Lidlers were wanting an invite to the big day. I for one have a pair of Doc Martins 😀 💐
Oh - I forgot that! My Docs have flowers on them and are named after me, for some reason. No, we share a name, that's all.
We were only ever going to the Reg. Off. thing, but all the to-do that can creep in is well, creepy. I shall wear an M&S dress and Sainsbury's jacket and NO HAT OR BLO ODY FASCINATOR!
Wot, no 'fascinator' @Duchess - appalled! still, suppose going down the aisle in a Sainsburys jacket is appropriate! My invite's in the post I expect? health, happiness and wealth to you both - in that order! If you can only have one, have the first one because that will lead automatically to the second
Very tempted. Have been there to the shopping village, so could go there afterwards! Actually, now you mention it, could go on the way up to Lewis, whence I am trying to take The Boy, so we could have a honeymoon..... will suggest it. Do they still do the same thing?
Ooooo, I love a wedding, if we're not being invited can we have some photos when the deed is done @Duchess
Hope it goes well with the arrangements and you have the day you wish for.
Good Luck - When is the special day?
Sometimes you just wish you could book a 'Simple Wedding'? It would take the form of:-
Do you? YES
Do you? YES
OK all done - you are married, just sign here and make the cheque out for £50!
Perhaps VEGAS, but not in the UK.
And a funeral to match!
Date of wedding after I receive an offer on my house. Chris won't marry until I live with him. Bonkers. What difference does it make? Oh yes, @Tanith - I found a form of ceremony! One side of A4, double-spaced. Easy peasy. And of course I'm not having a funeral (at my age, the two occasions could be elided into one!) , so that's easy too. Just pick up and burn. Done and er....dusted.....
