And I mean that in the most literal sense. Last night both the roommate and I dreamt that we were getting married to our current significant other. And we both freaked.
I'm not the only J-blogger to be thinking about marriage lately. Orieyenta has been discussing honeymoon possibilities, while Amishav is (finally) dating a woman worthy of him. On the more general level Good Girl at The Dude Abides has a round-up of some interesting marriage-related news and issues. Irish and Jew, of the eponymous blog, as befits people of their age, have been going to one wedding shower/wedding/wedding related activity after the other. It sort of makes me wonder why Jews don't just appropriate the Moonie way of doing things and have one mass wedding with thousands of couples at once. It would certainly save a lot of money. (Sherbs, Pedant, look into this)
DailyMotion has a video of a "Jamaican-Jewish" (meaning a Jamaican and a Jew) wedding which is fairly amusing, if somewhat offensive in the beginning (and the last line). I wish I knew what the guy was saying in Yiddish. The dance number is pretty cool, as is the fusion music.
All I have to say, is that when I do, one day get married, I want it to be really fun for the guests. I've been to a lot of lame weddings. That is not acceptable. I want people to talk about it for the next year as a "great time." Even people who don't necessarily like the institution of marriage (ahem Harley and TR). That's the goal, at least.
