IAmRight: I would LOVE to have an 8-foot bear here in the office. Bonus: school's mascot IS a bear, so it would even make sense.Would I dress it in school-spirited clothes? Hell yeah I would. Is it going to have a dopey scarf half the time? You bet!/better get on Kickstarter before this fella, his blog is better than mine
Nana's Vibrator: But neither light blue nor dark blue go with the table cloth, the center pieces, the function room rug, or the function room curtains. Red is clearly the right choice here. First you say you don't care and now you choose blue?!
Katie98_KT: Nana's Vibrator: It was completely embarrassing to me to have a gift registry for my wedding. I can buy my own dishes, thanks. You know this because I just spent tens of thousands on the party to celebrate my marriage. Nothing about this party consisted of any choices of my own, your invitation included, but I had burned them thousands anyways. But buy me some dishes, because tradition and my future wife insist!I need to write a book about wedding planning. Not to help plan weddings but to warn the future husbands of the world of this abomination.if you're not involved in planning your own wedding (and you want to be), its your own damned fault. And you probably shouldn't be getting married.
CapeFearCadaver: ChipNASA: ultraholland: There's really no good way to gift wrap a bearwrap it with a bearskin rug.Big Bird? Obama?!?!?snort/i want a beer :(
Tomahawk513: My wife comes from wealthier stock and the gifts we received from them were all over the board. Some were awesome, and some were... unique. Who the hell gives a bride, a Jewish one I might add, a Kimono?
TaterTot_HotDish: what's hilarious to me is that I am going to be a bride, getting married next summer, and now I am trying to figure out how I can put "giant stuffed grizzly bear in terrifying pose" on my bridal registry./it's something about the dead, dead eyes
db2: Nope, Chuck Testa.
Igor Jakovsky: umad: kvinesknows: umad: A friend of mine married a real coont like ten years ago. We didn't want to get her anything so my buddies and I all chipped in and bought him a 1911./ they're still married// she's still a coont///csbwhat the hekc is a 1911?[upload.wikimedia.org image 300x185]Was that for him or for her?
HellRaisingHoosier: This is why I love when my rednecks get married.One of my best buddies got married a few years ago. His wife said she would take care of the location and decorations if he took care of the food/drinks and music. I shiat you not: Beautiful outdoor wedding arrangement as well as reception area ... with 6 kegs of microbrew, several cases of wine and liquor, and a Rush cover band.
AngryRadio: All this talk of disgruntled grooms, it makes me wonder just how awesome gay marriages are for both grooms (and both brides for that matter!)?This brings to mind a question. If both grooms ARE "bears", do you still give them a Taxidermied bear?
the_vicious_fez: theMagni: the_vicious_fez:I was trying to imagine how that sort of session would go among my bf and his friends. After long and careful thought, I have come to the conclusion that every table would have a bread board, a soldering iron, a multimeter, and a pile of old components and motors and the reception would be a junkyard wars-style contest to build a mini killer robot.I want you to listen to me very carefully.When / if you get married, if you do that, I want you to invite me. I will fly down there.Well, I'd be game for it. Seating would be weird though. We'd have to spread out the EE types among all the tables, which means they might get a little lonely all by themselves.Also, I'm not EE. I'm FA/CS. I'll be in charge of modding the nerf guns for ranged attacks and doing Warhammer 40k paint jobs on everything.
abhorrent1: Lando Lincoln: I would love to go to a wedding where the groom made all of the decisions on the table settings. It would be worth it just to see what crazy shiat the guy came up with.Crazy or AWESOME?

ThighsofGlory: I want to talk about seating charts.

Red is clearly the right choice here. First you say you don't care and now you choose blue?!I would love to go to a wedding where the groom made all of the decisions on the table settings. It would be worth it just to see what crazy shiat the guy came up with.A guy and his best friend sitting down to brainstorm:"Ooh! We have 32 tables to decorate! WE COULD DECORATE EACH ONE WITH THE COLORS OF EACH NFL TEAM!""Awesome farking idea, dude! And we could put a football helmet of each team as the centerpiece!""Pricey, but we could probably find a place that could rent us the helmets.""And later on we could have a football game in the back lot and we could wear the helmets!""This is going to be THE BEST RECEPTION EVER!"
WarszawaScream: As a woman who loves taxidermy - if someone bought me a giant bear for my wedding, I would sell the husband just to get a second one. One cannot have too many taxidermied bears.
funzyr: KatjaMouse: I'm going to be registering later this year... will have to keep this in mind as to avoid getting a bear.It doesn't matter what you register for. You'll be lucky if 20% of the people even look at your registry. And it would be unlikely that more than half of them will buy from it.
Gunderson: I remember someone who blogged about the statue of Thrall that he had and bought into his and his newlywed's wife's home. He even gave it a setting at the dinner table. Alas, IIRC, the wife eventually won out and poor Thrall was relegated to the basement
