Where will the wedding be held, since there's nothing in Scotland but castles and golf courses? Haggis in a tube and $8 iced tea at the reception; I like the washcloth party favors, maybe with mini-ATM cards wrapped inside? If we want to give money to the happy couple, should it be in Euros? And where on EARTH will they honeymoon? Tony hates the subways in Latin America and gets sick in Africa. With any luck, children will NOT be invited to the reception (but cats in travel cases would be ok).

But, the washcloths have to be in toilet-paper green to match the bridesmaids dresses.

Listen, this is getting out of hand....

I would have replied earlier but they took the internet off me at work, something to do with lack of activity at my workstation.

Never mind, I leave in two weeks time.

Leae for where? When will you return? No doubt we'll have the wedding completely planned by the time you do.

So chili at the reception, I think. I wonder if any of the Italian relatives will try to pickpocket the other guests. I also wonder if Mephistos come in dyeable satin.

I think you ladies should contact Ron.
He seemed to be the romantic type.
Particularly if Tony has withdrawn from the lists. After all, he should be well experienced after Paris.

I've resigned, Martha.

What are Mephistos?

OK Beth, I'll go for the crispy pink nylon, as long as the bride wears white Nike's and has a fanny pack too. She can carry the washclothes (and the tiny ATM cards in the fanny pack). I think they should remember to take an umbrella too as you never know what the weather will be like! Of course they need to be on their guard for gypsies too, you never know they might show up at the wedding.
You know, none of this makes sense, but it has sure livened up the work day.

Bridesmaids in purple stretchpants and pink fanny-packs.

Groomsmen in jean shorts and "I'm with Stupid" T-shirts.

Tony, if you had only done a Forum search before asking your questions, you would have seen the recommendation for Mephistos in the thread "What is the Most Comfortable Footwear for Using a Two-Footprint Bathroom," which appeared several months back. I can't believe you missed it!

I think I saw the ultimate two footprint convience in the Alps at Cabane de Moiry. You could see daylight looking down, but you could not see bottom clearly because it was 2,000 feet away. Peering down was enough to give you vertigo while perched on the twin pedestals. The Glacier de Moiry from the Cabane would be a great backdrop for the wedding ceremony, however. The problem is getting there! If we cannot make Europe, how about Signal Mountain in the Tetons? Pink goes well with the snowy background.

Tony, are you, of all people, feeling a bit uncomfortable? Anyway, don't forget a good map for the walk down the aisle.

If I come to the wedding, can I bring more than 10 rolls of film?? Will be arms need to be covered in the church??

Am a little concerned that someone will hold up a wedding program -- and as I try to read it, they'll mug me.

Just a thought - will everyone be speaking English at this wedding? We can't all be in some foreign country and not expect the ceremony in English now can we? Also, will someone please bring an infant so that there will be some crying during the ceremony (the tears can be wiped away with extra washclothes).

I'll bring my baby. She can be really loud, but loves washcloths and chewing on ATM cards. It might be a good time to introduce her to haggis, a food no baby should be without. And, to show how considerate we are, we can arrive the morning of the wedding so she will be completely off her schedule in order to maximize the crankiness factor.

Should we rent cars through AutoEurope? Or should we take the train and buy our tickets ahead? Depending upon where the wedding is held, with there be a quaint and charming b&b run by English speaking people that's reasonably priced and can accommodate 659 wedding guests?

Should we take a taxi or the shuttle to the wedding reception?
