"Mawwage. Mawwage is wot bwings us togeder today. Mawwage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam... And wuv, tru wuv, will fowow you foweva... So tweasure your wuv."
If the quote means anything to you, congratulations, it's a gold chip in your geek card. But would you actually want it recited at your wedding ceremony? Would you consider going a step farther, and having the entire ceremony done in a Princess Bride theme? Your best man decked out as a swashbuckling Spaniard? Perhaps the dance floor at the reception laced with a few flame spurts and an occasional ROUS?
As we've discussed on numerous episodes of the podcast, geek culture is becoming not only more mainstream in and of itself, but socially acceptable in more environments, from the social scenes to the workplace. If that's the case, is the wedding altar equally ready for geekery?
