The Wedding's off! by TERRY S on 18 July 2008 11:34pm
 
Hi, Gang. Just to let you know I'm a very sad lady tonight. Got an email from the Star Trek Experience saying they are closing down in September. They are having a special couples final wedding on the last day of the exibition, but it will cost £2,000($4,000). So, sadly, don and I will not be having our klingon wedding. I am very upset about it. If anyone can suggest an alternative, please do.

Terry, I'm so sorry to hear that! Can you find another venue and still have the same ceremony and outfits? Just a suggestion.

Terry, they are done in Las Vegas. Here is a link for you.

Hope this helps somewhat.

Oh that's bad luck:( Surely someone else does theme weddings?

I believe the Catholic Church and indeed the Anglican Church do themed weddings. The theme is love and lifelong commitment, not to be confused with silly dressing up to be a 'fun' couple.

( I did'nt have a church wedding, so I'm allowed to whatever the fcuk I like. ) ;)

I DID have a church wedding, the full Catholic job ( I'm not the Catholic one though) No wonder it didn't last, next time I'm gettin married at Cadbury World :)

Pretending to be a Catholic is worse than pretending to be a Klingon. Your marriage was doomed. :)

I didn't pretend to be Catholic, I had no choice I was railroaded I tellya. We were even made to go to Catholic lessons beforehand, I just sat there and was totally ignored while the priest concentrated on him and got him to sign forms swearing to bring any kids up in the faith. I might as well have been invisible through the whole thing. Bah. I'm gonna tell the Pope, he's in Oz at the moment, I shall book an audience with him right now. Hmm let's see...www.popeinoz.com.au.
I'll try that

I pretended to be a Catholic for seven years...........then I turned 8.
Give my regards to The Papa.

I've never pretended to be Catholic. A friend of mine got a job as organist/choir director at a local Anglican church, though, and Mr. Thing and I went to her first service just to give her a little moral support. It was a doozy--the bishop was visiting, so everyone was on their anally best behavior. I got frustrated trying to balance my bulletin, prayer book, hymnal, and bible, so I gave up and tried to kneel, stand, and sit at the appropriate times and otherwise enjoy the show. At the end, a bunch of minions got up and marched around the sanctuary with the bishop in full regalia in the middle of the group (in case someone has a gun?). Didn't it look JUST like something out of Python! I tried very hard not to snigger too loudly. Luckily, my friend was blasting out some music, so she covered me up.

After the service, the bishop was in the fellowship hall having coffee. I spoke with him, wanting to know what men like that were like without all the pomp and nonsense, and he actually was a very nice guy who was terribly embarrassed about the whole thing. He said, and I quote,

"Every time I have to do this, I feel like I'm in a Monty Python sketch!"
