I'll make their invitations while I'm trying to make my own (they have to go out in 2 weeks!  Ah)
Um... may I recommend a funfetti grooms cake?

Congrats on that, hope you have a wonderful wedding.
Anyway, Deryn needs a dress and if anyone can get her into it, I'd nominate this number:

Wow, that is really pretty.

All of my wedding ideas are romantic and girly, I doubt she would go for that.

Yeah, it's beautiful.
IN a fic I'm working on, her wedding doesn't exactly go as planned...

Heh, I'm the fashion history nerd so I of course have loads of nominations for wedding dresses. XD I sort of doubt Deryn would wear that lovely dress, Bookie, plus it will probably be a bit old fashioned by they time they are old enough to get married.

Here's an original vintage from 1920: http://hollyvoguevintage.com/20sweddr01.html

I'm kind of going with later stuff because Deryn would make a cute flapper bride.  ;D

Here is one from 1914, though:

I think we should make it a Scottish wedding!  Alek will have to wear a kilt.  And there are traditional Scottish dances that the bride and groom do.
There's actually a page online somewhere about Scottish wedding traditions.  I'll find it later (gotta go to work!)

Yes! If we can't get Alek in a dress, a kilt is the closest thing to it right? :P

Wow, all thoes dresses are really pretty. I think one of the flapper ones would be best for Dreyn though. When the 20's roll around, if she's not in the air force she'll totally be a flapper. :)

I remember the movie "Made of Honor" I think, has a Scottish wedding in it played humorously.

What about where their wedding will be? I say they should rent the Leviathan for their wedding party.  ;D

I remember reading about Scottish stag parties where they get the groom roaring drunk and then tie him up half naked (or naked in some cases) outside the brides home.  I'm planning the stag party!

Kewl. We totally need to throw Alek one of those stag parties. Even though we're probably mostly girls... :P

In the last Tiffany Aching book (Discworld), Tiffany (a witch) is trying to banish an evil spirit haunting her village and the young baron, Roland, pops up out of a pigsty where he had been passed out after a similar stag party and in an er... similar condition. It's a really funny scene, especially as they had been childhood crushes. Then the bride shows up and is quite scandalized. XD This reminds me of that.

It's hard to imagine Alek going with that, though, he's just too dignified I think.
