Holy beans there's a lot to reply to here.

@LMNO, PhD: It's their 3rd wedding in two years and it's mostly to appease those in Australia who couldn't make the first two. As far as I know, it's going to be a very casual affair, which is why I'm officiating. But I fully agree with what you're saying. Breaking things kicks arse *nods*

@Triple Zero: Starting a war may be a little bit extreme as an introduction to Discordian for some of our friends and family, but Hell is it appropriate! I may do the snub-invites for my own wedding. No Hot Dogs check. Now that you've mentioned it, you're totally right that invoking a blessing from Eris is a bad idea. No one wants that on their head.

@Cromulus: That is fan-bloody-tastic! I am forwarding that to my fiance as we speak. I am now a Universal Life Church Monastry Minister :D
 
@The Good Reverend Roger: She's Hindu and open to all religions. I told her about Discordianism and she was genuinely interested.

@Luna: lol
I think that covers everything I wanted to reply to

But also maybe not. I think Roger said it, a lot of it is for the bride and her mom. DONT under ANY circumstance snub that part of the family.

Yeah. Check the "Surprise me, Eris" threads somewhere in these forums (use "Surprise me Eris" site:principiadiscordia.com in Google, should probably work)

Have three Bridesmaids, who disgrace themselves by squabbling over some bauble or other. Make them fight it out in a big tub of lime green jelly.

One of the great things about this religion is that you don't HAVE to be weird all the time.

There's also no fucking brand name here.  There is no "Discordian Wedding" or "Discordian Music" or any of that shit.  You do something because you LIKE it, not just to be deliberately weird.  The whole point of this garbage is THINK FOR YOURSELF, SCHMUCK, not "how can we show how zany we are?"

Odds are, a frivolous approach to a wedding will lead to a frivolous approach to a marriage, and that never fucking ends well. 

Just saying.

Yeah, great.  How about her mother?  If you think an affronted mother in law is not an issue, then you have another thing coming.

So basically, no one is going to mind if it's a bit of a weird thing. In my experience Australians aren't that attached to traditions anyway, and it's the third ceremony (I assume with 0 divorces in between). So you can goof it up a bit.

Roger, you're absolutely right. Discordianism isn't all ha ha, hee hee; that's what I like about it. Behind all the zaniness there's a solid philophy which THINK FOR YOURSELF, SCHMUCK is an important part. When I started this thread I was kinda hoping for equal parts zany and thoughtful.

There's a time and a place for zany.  A wedding... not so much.  Screw up that day, and the bride, the bride's mother, SOMEBODY will want a large enough piece of your hide to make a toilet seat cove.

Discordian wedding story: http://www.principiadiscordia.com/forum/index.php/topic,31574.0.html

I agree. It's not a real Discordian wedding unless you arrange for an infant to CHOLERA SPRAY HOSE all over everybody.

Will you DISCORDIAN MARRY ME, Zilch? I promise there will be angry prairie dogs and no hot dog buns.

I don't know about this whole "If you don't take your wedding seriously, you're gonna fuck up your marriage" thing. Gina and John up there are still together. If my last GF and I had tied the knot, we wanted a silly ceremony like the Ginohn one. I think our parents would have understood.

Silliness because that's the bride and groom is one thing, that's fine.  Adding crazy for the sake of the officiant, on, "sure, add a touch if you want," is more iffy.

Difference between Australia and the South: In Kentucky, the third ceremony comes after two divorces, a few trial separations, countless domestic disputes, the resulting restraining orders, a couple of bar fights, several jail terms, and at least one child with a third party. Because you can't stop true love.
