As opposed to the open bar? Probably more cost effective

too cheap or too scared to give a real dose?

I microdose more often than full dose mushrooms. It takes the edge off and I can still function as an adult.

And there is value in that, but dude, it's a party.

I don not see why someone can not enjoy their wedding day without the aid of drugs. The story is actually pretty sad.

While I'm all for partying, as a minister that's performed 21 weddings, I'd refuse to sign the paperwork unless they were sober at the time. Being under the influence and unable to legally consent sounds like a great way to try and back out of the contract you just signed

Speaking as an uptight square, these people are far too quirky and unique for me to handle.  They are smashing conventions and the status quo so much that it makes me want to retreat to my Sedan Deville and drive to the country club where I may tut-tut their renegade ways with a martini in hand.

"But alcohol is a drug too, Dad, " they say, and suddenly my mind is blown and I realize that they were right all along.

She sounds...annoying.

"It had an element of surprise and delight for our guests," the bride says. "And combined my passions of complicated Excel spreadsheets, crafting, and dabbling in drugs."

Tracking guests and their drug of choice means a complicated spreadsheet?  What, she assigned green text to the ones that picked weed?

Again same reason. Some of us don't need nor want to be totally blotto on a full strength psychedelic trip, even at a party. Some prefer the solitude of the woods when dosing. I personally hate babysitting morons that can't handle the trip from some substance they had no idea the strength of at a party.

Don't get me wrong, you do you. I just have seen too many idiots who thought they could handle *insert drug of choice* and puke/shiat/piss all over themself and others to want to give out full doses at a wedding.

Kind of a shame that vomitoriums went out with ancient Roman weddings.

My best friend's wedding was basically a dress up rave in the Redwood National Park. The invitation did include the caveat, "Pretty much anything goes as far as drug use. Remember, there will be family there. Please no heroin or psychedelics."

I usually have a lawyer, and notary when I sign a contract. I try to keep people with invisible friends out of dealings. Who knows what they see? And i cannot count on objectivity from someone who is leashed by a cosmic wizard.
That is too trippy for business.

Bowties?  Pants?  Look at all those uptight squares.  Is that a meeting of the Topeka Rotary Club?  At my wedding I decreed "NO PANTS"  I've had it with society and their uptight conventions and rules.

But also, if you did wear pants, that was cool too.  I'm so opposed to rules, I don't even make people follow my rules.

Turns out.. It wasn't even a wedding!

it would seem better suited for a jack and Jill type thing vs wedding day

We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like "I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive...." And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas.

I microdosed mushies at my nieces wedding in Boise...her husband was passing them out to the groomsmen and I got in on the action. Quite fun!

Nice "link" Subby, were you dosing at the time of submission?

Having been to both weddings and a funeral where psychedelics were involved.
I have no problem with this.

Also... Having been to both weddings and funerals where alcohol was dished out in large amounts...

Fark that, Drunks are hair trigger  violent idiots over anything insignificant.

As someone who's dabbled quite a bit in psychedelics and softer drugs, let me say that this seems like both a fun and terrible idea.

Having said that, I'd love to go to a wedding with an open reefer bar.
 
2022-06-29 10:43:18 AM  
Yes, indeed. The exact thing you want at your wedding is multiple people in psychedelic crisis. Seems very festive.

From the people who brought you double and triple negatives, we bring you "Two Negatives and a Typo that May or May Not be a Third!" Try and figure this one out, grammar geeks!

No farking shiat - I was about to post the same link. Thanks for saving me the trouble!

I can think of 2 weddings where the majority of us were tripping. It was back in the 80's and an art collective, so that was pretty much our usual state.

Not so CSS: one of our friends was getting married in Athens, GA. We were in Atl. at the local punk rock bar when another of our friends dosed one of the wedding party member's beer with a dropper of acid. He was missing for a day or two after, but was located. It was NOT a cool scene.

You DO NOT dose people without their consent. The OP story reads that it was an option for the invitees, which sounds pretty fun.

I would have to be on drugs to ever get married again.

I enjoyed my wedding day.


Because my wife and I eloped.  We invited nobody and told nobody*.  Much less headache and hassle.  Especially when you have crazy families.


*I told nobody.  My wife told her sister who then told her husband.  He still mentions how hurt he was about it, years later.  This is why I proposed eloping.

That would be alcohol. You described alcohol.

So now I can sit and tell my story.
So Timothy Leary was alive when I first took acid. had a friend, hippy parents who taught about baby sitters and prepared us, etc.
Being college kids it was a thing in those days, I wouldn't trust anything anyone tried to pass off as acid these days, I'd much rather have shrooms.
SO that's not the story.
I did research on it and one of the things that I found was a study about microdosing LSD as a way to combat alcoholism. Microdosing has no change in perception, but was effective in controlling ETOH intake.
So back to college, there was a guy who was super alcoholic. He actually had a life goal to drink more than John Bonham did and live.
So one night we were tripping and he decided to join us.
Me, I can do a four way and function. I never "hallucinated" like some people do, probably because I understood how it was affecting my perception, but it made it no less fun. Yes, the walls melt, but it's because it interferes with persistence of vision. I don't know how many mics are in 0.1 ml of liquid, but that's the most I ever did, and yes, I did see the fabric of the Universe for what it is.
So this guy was having very vivid hallucinations. He didn't have a bad trip, just very vocal about his perceptions of things.
He never drank again.
Yes, I would do shrooms every day too. I believe psychedelics are medicinal and have value.But if you feel it, it's not a true microdose, but, you know, semantics and language.

Marriage is a ritual. Tripping with like minded people is a ritual.

Mixing them could be confusing. Like, someone having a baby at a funeral.
