Some reasons why others think those of us out here in Cali are certainly unique and have urged us to keep it up:
- We're having a ceremony at Burning Man.
- We're asking our guests to attend wearing costumes inspired by the Joss Whedon's TV series Firefly.
- We're thinking of serving Tru Blood Beverage to our Reaver guests so that they won't eat our other guests. (Yes Tru Blood Beverage is from another TV series but it was the closest non-perishable item we could think of to protect our guests.)
- We're thinking of serving a signature drink at our San Francisco wedding made with Tru Blood Beverage as a nod to our playa ceremony (the FangBanger - Tru Blood Beverage and Vodka).
Taken out of the context of our community, yes we might be offbeat.
In our community? No one's going to blink an eye. It's your typical day in the life. You know the kind of typical where on a break from working on Syzygryd you would over hear an in-depth discussion of why Inara (my favorite Firefly character) was a stronger character than Deanna Troi (on Star Trek: Next Generation).
Are you planning a wedding that taken out of the context of your community is offbeat? What makes it offbeat?
