Weddings can be pricey. They’re also all so generic! Years ago I came up with my dream wedding.
For starters, the invitation will specify a strict dress code: BLUE jeans and a t-shirt. The groom (Mr. Cheap himself) will be in BLACK jeans, and wearing a tuxedo t-shirt. The bride will be in white jeans and a white blouse (so she’ll look all frilly and nice compared to everyone else – who says Mr. Cheap doesn’t understand a woman’s needs!?!?).
On the invitation RSVP guests will check off which McDonald’s extra value meal they want (and we’ll super size the wedding party’s and close family’s meals). For drinks I’ll get a vat of that McDonald’s orange drink and we’ll spike it with Al-cool.
I’m hopeful that McDonald’s might throw in a Grimace costume for the person officiating the ceremony to wear (since I’m buying so much from them already)…
We’ll hold the ceremony and reception in someone’s back yard probably. I’m figuring a budget of $300-$400 should cover it the whole thing.
I know this is a great idea, so I’ll answer your first question right now: no, I won’t be offended if you steal my idea and get married in a similar fashion (I’ll be flattered!). And I’ve anticipated your first comment too: yes, the woman who gets a lasso around Mr. Cheap will be a very lucky lady indeed!
Wooly Woman inspired me to write this up. She had a taco bar at her wedding, which is uber-cool (I might blow the budget and add one of those to mine!).
