This week, we'll be reposting some of our older articles that you may not have seen. This post was written by Maurice Mitchell on 08/2010.The dorkiest wedding I've ever seen is the one between a guy and a girl dressed as Batman and Wonder Woman. I've seen a lot of costume weddings, from Star Trek to Star Wars and this is the worst. Ever. Where to start?
Neil Vaugh, 45, said "I have always wanted to be Batman, ever since I was a little boy and Sharon said she had always wanted to be Wonder Woman." Compromise is an essential part of marriage. It would have made more sense for Superman and Wonder Woman to get married. Or Batman and Catwoman. Or Superman and Supergirl if you don't mind the creepiness of cousins marrying. The list goes on and on.
The costumes are cheap. A wedding doesn't need to be expensive, but if you're going to do it, go all the way. 40-year-old bride Sharon Vaugh bragged, "Our wedding was absolutely amazing and it cost us less than some couples would spend on just the dress." Splurge on some authentic looking costumes and make sure they're in your size.
If other people are wearing costumes to your wedding, ask them not to wear a costume better than the bride and groom. This goes back to the last point. If the Joker (Master of Ceremonies) looks cooler than the groom he looks like an idiot. Its like guests showing up wearing wedding dresses and tuxedos. It looks wrong.
Pose in character. Taking pictures with Batman and Wonder Woman holding hands running through.a meadow just looks wrong. Yes, it's a happy time, but stay in character for the pictures.
What do you think? Is this the world's dorkiest wedding?
