    I love that she says "well if you do not want to dress up you can wear white and be a cloud." Um no thank you, I will wear a cocktail dress.

    <div>I guess we will not get getting "one of my guests wore white" post from her.</div>






    What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests.  Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.

    ...if Todd had thought of this before our wedding, he would have dropped his dreams of looking like Voldemort on our wedding day and rushed out to purchase blue overalls immediately. 


    I didn't watch the video, but I don't hate this at all.  What is in the video which I should hate?  There's something for me to hate here, right?

    I'd dress up like princess peach too.  Only I'd do it better and steal all her thundar!

    What I took from all this is that it's one thing for you and your FI to dress like Mario and Peach.  It's a whole other level of cray-cray to make everyone else go along with the costume party!

    I want to see the actually wedding pictures.  It's neat, NMS, but definitely fun.

    Anyone from back in the day remember Sooles (?) I  think she had a Super Marios Bros. wedding, no?

    Right?!  I'm glad I'm not going crazy.  But I'm pretty sure her theme was Mario Bros.  I don't think they dressed in costume or anything, though.

    LOL dedicated! But I agree, they look awfully young to actually have played in the 80s!

    I remember Sooles!  She had that cool purple octopus tattoo on her arm, right?

    And the bride isn't MAKING everyone dress up.  She understood if some people didn't want to.  To each his own :)

    If I wanted my dad to dress as Bowser for my wedding.... no. Just no.

    I think her parents probably indulged her a lot as a child. "Sure, honey, whatever makes you happy."

    I know Sooles had a cake (groom's cake?) that looked like the Nintendo controller and a few other Mario Bros elements in her wedding. She was so cool! She had the awesome blue reception dress.

    Shiit, my son was born in 2001, and I can see him planning this wedding in about 15 years or so.  He had a pretty serious crush on Peach for awhile.  Mario is timeless, y'all.

    I read the article and found myself making the noise for when Mario gets a coin.  I'm losing it over here.
