10k at a wedding really? My first wedding had 1,500 because parents have friends and I thought average gift was around $50 a person so why not and no costs paid by me. All marriages following were out of pocket and more enjoyable.

Heh. We invited less than 40 people. My wife's family, our close friends, and that was it. We had it in a park near our house. One of our close friends is an ordained minister, so he conducted the ceremony.

I'd be hard pressed to find another 60 people, never mind 1,400 on top of that, to invite.

10,000 attendees?  I'm not sure I'd even get 50.  I really don't like that many people.  Maybe my future wife?

There is no safe way to have a maskless, close quarter 10,000 person event. Nothing has changed. Even if there were the Satmar have never learned words like "responsible" or "consideration."

Is this the monthly "Big weddings are bad smalls one are bad" thread ?

Circle the appropriate choice

I would never have/use/live in   a            Big Wedding/Pelaton/HOA

I prefer my
small wedding/road bike/non HOA house.

Everything about it is just so much more Intimate/practical/better.

I don't think I know enough people who in turn would know 10,000 people. We had ~100 at our wedding and that was plenty.

Pssst, that wasnt the point the thread already had comments from people talking about how big weddings are bad and I was making a joke.

Jokes are something people on here do from time to time. It had nothing to do with Covid.

good luck if they end up on a ventilator. they aren't supposed to use any machinery on a sabbath.

but I bet their rejection of modernity will be tested shortly.

they will be perfectly happy claiming that their religion allows them this exception for personal health.  After having also said their religion takes precedence over wearing a mask for health reasons.

Substitute "Soloflex" for "Pelaton" and you'll encompass an entire older generation.

Why yes, it is in pieces in my basement, why do you ask?

 I had a wedding arranged in 2003 but I split. Not at the altar but less than. Two weeks before.

To this day her father loathes the mention of my name. I sent him 2k but that hardly made it right. Bonus fact: his daughter and I have still been meeting about twice per year (she lives in Miami, I'm in New Orleans). We've sorta been together for 20 years, me and my common law interstate marriage.

Headline says 10,000.

Article says 1,000

Uh, hello, I quoted one of their songs. Granted, it was not relevant to the story but it is always the first song I think of when I think of the group.

Fun fact: I grew up in the same hometown as the 10,000 Maniacs. I used to deliver newspapers to the parents of the keyboardist, Dennis Drew, and I went to school with Natalie Merchants brother, who was two years ahead of me.
