Yeah, I've been seeing the darker side of Disney for a while, and I'm starting to enjoy it pretty well without the guilt, but the little kid in my head always goes "Mickey doesn't say THAT! What is Buzz doing? Noooooo!"

Maybe you can get whoever made Penelope Cruz look like Jack Sparrow in the last POTC movie. Although that might just make you look like....well....Jack Sparrow. A very dapper one if you end up wearing a tux.

I'm going to make plans for the singles meet in late October. I am so excited to have found this board & all the nice helpful people here! I'm still learning the ropes of this thread, but I'm sure I'll learn fast!

(I'm a guy, so I'm not going to care as much about having "the perfect centerpiece", or flowers, etc etc etc.) I think for the most part everything is coming together nicely. The BIGGEST issue is we aren't even sure if I'm gonna have a best man or any groomsmen now. I asked my Brother to be my Best Man... but then his wife went and got pregnant (after YEARS of trying)... and they are having twins.... and she's due about a month before the wedding. So it's not 100% that my brother will be able to make the trip up from Atlanta for the wedding.

Then HER brother was supposed to be the other groomsman, but after spending years in the airforce they finally decided in May that he was going to get deployed overseas for the summer, and he's not due back until just after the wedding.


But beyond that little hicup which we don't have much control over, I haven't heard of any other showstoppers. My personal biggest question now is paying for the open bar and the honeymoon. (We are taking the official honeymoon trip a month after the wedding so that we can have her parents look after Gus for a couple days before joining us at Disney)
I would so do the "best diva...ummm...woman" thing for you...and seriously, how appropriate would it be for you to have a "harem" around you on your wedding day? and you know there's no way of making me look like a guy

Do not underestimate, the POWER, of the darkside!

Hmmm... That might cause a different kind of problem. As much as she loves me, I'm not sure how my odds would look if she had both me and Capt. Jack at the alter.

to the group! I'll make sure I add your name to the list for the October meet. I'll try to get the first post updated with info on the meet as it's decided upon, and normally we'll PM everyone on the list with some details shortly before the meet.

In the mean time.... Don't be a stranger around here! we always love having new people join in the fun around here, and we can be a very fun group to chat with.

Oh god....

I hadn't thought about the harem in ages. I'm not sure how much people outside the SSC would appreciate that though during the ceremony.

Awesome. . .

As for groomsmen and a best man. . .Just as people you know and trust. Keep your brother as Best Man until closer but then ask one of your other groomsmen to stand in if he can't be there. It happens. My biggest hiccup is the wedding is on a Saturday evening and my son, who is supposed to walk me down the aisle, can only leave base (stationed in Guantanamo Bay) on Saturday or every other Tuesday. He was planning on only using a week of leave, but may need to use more. The hiccup is only if he doesn't have more. . .lol.

Tony has opinions on what should and shouldn't be done at a banquet (he is a server after all). He HATES buffets and does not want one at the wedding. I really don't care. . .its all about good tasting food and a great party atmosphere for me. One piece of advice. . .if you are planning on having an open bar, use the pre-paid option. If you go with a "pay per drink" with a cap you will go over your cap and they may or may not tell you that you are over. . .Its happened to many of my friends. Just some advice.

Unfortunately I don't have any other groomsmen. The two were her brother and my brother as Best Man. I don't really have many friends, a small number of male friends... and even fewer who I would consider close enough (either distance wise or friendship wise) to ask to be in the wedding party.


As for the bar.... I'll relay what you suggested to Rachel and her mom. They are the ones who are making all the arrangements. I'm honestly not even sure what our options are since it's on base and they won't even let us provide the keg (her uncle works for a distributor so he can get beer at wholesale)

For the fans of 'I Love you Man', you may have already seen it, but they were showing the following during the Rush 'Time Machine' tour. Pistol and Joben finally meet Rush ... the humor may vary, but as huge Rush fan I loved it

So just FYI...

It's looking like Rachel and I won't be able to make the October meet. Even though we will be in town, we will probably be spending Saturday and Sunday over at Universal since her parent's have finally decided to experience the Dark Side.
