I was reading an article the other day regarding a couple in Portland that held a Star Wars themed wedding. While this is nothing original what made it interesting is that all guests were required to dress in costume.

You know I like Star Wars as much as the next guy, well maybe even a little more so. I'm going to go see the new cartoon in the theatre with my equally kind-of-a-dork friend, who admits he's as much of a Lucas whore as I. Yeah we're not mature.

You really didn't need to know that did you?

All that being said I would never do something like this, but to each their own. I hope it was a good wedding and all attending had fun, including one hottie who dressed in a Princess Leia gold bikini. Of this I approve.

As a former wedding photographer I've seen many types of ceremonies. Mostly I've attend traditional celebrations, but there have been a few that may be deemed obscure. I've photographed a pagan, medieval, and even a druid wedding. Considering almost nothing is known about the druids I found the ceremony amusing, but everyone seemed to have a good time.

There's been a couple of women dumb enough to consider marrying me and they've asked me what kind of wedding I want. They were not amused by me simply answering that I want boobs and booze. Seriously though if I had a disposable income I'd get married someplace cool, like off the coast of Italy. I'd fly everyone out in style and the reception would be three days of drinking, dancing, go-kart racing, and hopefully would not involve the cops.

Then again weddings aren't about the groom, so whatever makes the bride happy would be fine with me. Then again if she wanted karaoke the wedding would be called off.

I don't know why I just wrote that considering I'm 33 and getting fatter, balder, and uglier. I doubt it's in the cards for me, but a bachelor's life has been indeed a good one. This way I do get my share of booze and boobs.

I like boobs. Oh you knew that?

But if Scarlett was willing to drop Ryan Ryanolds for a fatter, balder and uglier karaoke singing machine from the Pacific Northwest, you'd change your tune.

Boobs are good.

Also you misspelled 'Bikini'

I hope when you said you wanted boobs at your wedding you meant the bride's!

I think traditional weddings are sooooo boring, If and when I ever get married (i'm in the same position as you sans the balding part) I want something fun and outlandish!

Good to know your take on themed weddings also, a good thing we got rid of the karaoke.... You may not wanna come because I would hate to read your review of how cheesy and ghetto ours is.

In my experience, cheesy and ghetto is right up Erik's alley. :)
