So nothing from any wedding ceremony has yet to move me, to reach down my throat and pluck my heart strings. However, the wedding I've attended have served as examples of what I want to avoid, and I'm storing this information in the back of my mind for some point in the distant future.
Today I learned that my wedding will not have the following things*:
- The wedding party walking the aisle with the accompaniment of Green Day's "Time of Your Life", as reproduced by a flute and an electric piano.
- Reading the traditional marriage contract out loud. It is in Aramaic. Aramaic is a dead language. Leave it alone.
*scientists have determined that the probability that I will have any influence on what cliches do or do not occur during my wife's wedding is 0.02%
