How about a Spaceballs-themed wedding?

Yes, that's me as the Impressive Clergyman. Yes, I know that's a mixed metaphor, but I did actually mix the two ceremonies.

At least they kept it in the DC Universe. Just think if Wonderwoman married Batwing - now that would be a cross-over special. But I did see Wolverine and what might be a bald Captain America in the audience, so they are an open-minded couple. I really want to know the story behind Mild Mannered Granny (first row, far left). She has the potential to be a secret villain, bent on destroying this happy day or undermining their relationship with faint praise and back-handed comments.

Awesome. I love themed weddings. Keep them coming! (especially you, MrMoonPie - I hope I hope I hope they had managed to pull of a stealth themed wedding).

I clicked on the middle link, I saw the photo, I saw Bananaman waiting patiently with his hands folded in the second row, and I realized that upon seeing that, the day has nowhere to go but down.

I liked the picture of the guests in the second link they looked like they were attending an NA meeting for super heroes. Perhaps they could be.

I always wonder what the non-costume-owning friends do at events like these.
I mean, surely they must have some friends that just aren't going to dress up as..well, anyone.
Do they just not get an invite or what?

I like to think that Bill Clinton received invitations to both weddings, got mixed up, and showed up at his daughter's wedding dressed as Two Face.

muddgirl, nah, that wedding was the most planned, non-stealth, best-attended wedding of any of them, I'd say, on the rooftop terrace of the Newseum, catered by Wolfgang Puck. I think it was the first one I got paid for--the couple actually broached the subject, acknowledging in their initial email to me that this was rather outside of what I had volunteered for.

The wedding party had some pretty good costumes, and I thought the Powerpuff girl bridesmaids were fantastic, but Rorschach in the back totally takes the cake.

When you bring the costumes in that early, what do they dress up as for role playing fantasies? A conventional bride and groom?

God, I am sick to DEATH of women choosing to go strapless for their weddings. It's so tired!

What's wrong with strapless wedding dresses? It's just a style like any other.

Aww. I'm so glad they found each other. Felicitations to the lovely couple!

Just joking about the ubiquity of the strapless dress, which has been so for so long that I am surprised to see a dress with sleeves anymore. But I don't really like traditional wedding clothes in general. Party weddings like this are much closer to my speed!

The fun and games start when Batman realizes that Wonder Woman has had a thread from the Lasso of Truth woven into his wedding ring. Prank wars with Bruce could get crazy, fast.

I think if I was going to dress as Batman for my wedding, I'd want a much more attractive pair of Batpants. I mean, I can see not wanting to wear tights, but those are just terrible.

And impressive collection of costumes otherwise, though.

How long did it take them to explain to the guy at the comic shop how to set up a bridal registry?

She Hulk, when she was a lawyer.

That would make a great TV series.

I knew it wasn't real (to the extent that anything in comics is), but the corner of my hear that ships Bruce/Diana twinged a little on seeing this post.

There was a great run on the She Hulk comic a few years back, where she worked as a lawyer on cases involving other superheroes. It was fun, and pretty unlike the rest of Marvel's line-up, so naturally in the end the creative team were replaced and it went all GRIMDARK and adventures with SHIELD and blah blah seen it all before.

FWIW, I attended Spaceballs: The Wedding and it was AWESOME. The reception was a backyard BBQ with puppies involved. It seems like people who don't get stuck on having a "real" wedding end up having the best weddings of them all.

And the little Spiderman in the last link is absolutely adorable.

MrMoonPie: How about a Spaceballs-themed wedding?

<derail> The outfit is of course awesome (go look!). MrMoonPie, if you bring it out again, please please please add some kind of thurible (the incense-burner-on-a-chain) to the ensemble. And maybe a crosier.</derail>

I thought this was an actual DC Comics crossover Event style thing and to my horror, I had an opinion about it. A passionate one. How do you wash the stink of nerdrage out of your mind?
