Why the fat girl in the front?
This seems like a stunt intended to go viral to get free stuff from Ellen.
Could their looks be any blander?
In my opinion, this is as stupid as all get out, but if they're happy, that's all that matters.
I doubt I would agree to be in a friend's wedding who wanted something as silly as this one unless drugs were the groomsmen's gifts.
How did they enter the church, on trapezes and down bat poles?
What a bunch of morons, Typical of their inane, ignorant generation.
What if their first date was a batman movie you gaggle of bitter queens?
When my partner and I got together, right out of college, we didn't have two nickels to rub together. I would make quesadillas for dinner because they were cheap. 15 years later and more money than we would ever need, if we have a celebration, it is with homemade quesadillas. Granted it is usually with a vintage bottle of Louis Loederer Cristal now, but the memories mean a lot.
Sorry you guys don't have that sort of memory and fun spirit.
Only people with bad taste drink Cristal.
R9, just so you don't come off as silly when you try to impress people again in the future, Cristal is made by Roederer...

I doubt they would be friends with someone as boring and stuck-up as you, so you have nothing to worry about.
It seems like harmless fun. It's better than some big garish wedding.
Wait a minute, OP. "Gorgeous?"
Well, OP said the guy in the Google vid was gorgeous, too...
This is garish, R20! They're in a church and presumably had some semblance of an actual ceremony. I can't imagine how terrible this was to witness. It all looks so tedious. And you know at least one of these two is going to be embarrassed in the future when they're looking at their wedding photos and seeing nothing but a bridal party in cartoon masks.
I'm as fun as the next guy, but seriously, this is just juvenile, n'est-ce pas?
I give this marriage 40 months which is about how long it will take them both to regret this farce.
R11, don't assume that everyone is from New York. R9 is from Japan.
This is every 11 year old's dream wedding.
Well, I wouldn't do it, but the vibe I get is that they are in some rural location and they are trying to have fun with it. I think there have been weddings that are more tacky that cost more - you see them profiled with videos in the NY Times, plus any suburban wedding.
I bet they stay married and have a bunch of kids.
I don't get to the society pages as often as I might but does the NYTimes now feature videos?
Hideous, sub-adult, tacky, all the men are ugly and all the women are fat.
There aren't enough drugs in the world to get me to go to a wedding like this, let alone be in the wedding party.
I like the look of it from the safe distance of another continent and with no connection to the bride and groom, but I would hate it if one of my nearest and dearest did this.
What R29 said
Not what I would do, but it looks like they were having fun.
I have been to plenty of weddings that follow Miss Manners to a fare-thee-well. They are the ones more likely to divorce, since they are following an instruction booklet rather than their own life.
It's not a question of etiquette, R32. It's the failure of imagination that causes these people to replace one set of rituals with another that they have based on a childish preoccupation.
And if they DID go to a Batman movie on their first date, they have no reason to be horribly ashamed of it (assuming that they were childhood sweethearts), but no reason to commemorate the fact either.
It's a cute idea for a comic nerd like myself, but it could have been better executed.
The bride and groom are each quite attractive (though not what I would call gorgeous).
I'm sure the wedding was a lot of fun for the participants and the guests, which is what matters in the end.
I voted NO in the poll mainly because if you're going to allege to have a Batman wedding, then go all out! I never would've guessed this was a Batman theme from the picture if OP hadn't posted it.
The groomsmen dressed as Jokers, Riddlers, Penguins, and the bridesmaids as Catwomen, Batgirls, Harley Quinns...
I want to see the groom's feets.
ALL weddings are cliches and boring as hell. From the overly serious ceremony to the first dance, to the toasts, to the cake cutting, etc. Boring, boring, boring and oh so predictable. I'd rather watch paint dry than attend another straight wedding filled with cliches.
So this looks like they at least had fun. I think the couple will last longer than those who need their stupid "fairy tail" bullshit weddings of bad music, bad dresses, and the same old, same old.
The theme itself is childish, but what bothers me is it seems like minimal effort was put into everything. From their appearances, to the mug shot photo area. It looks like some fourth grade class project.
I wouldn't do it, but they did their wedding on their terms with their friends. She's no bridezilla and let her bridesmaids wear what they wanted. Always a good sign. They were true to themselves, probably didn't spend an insane amount of money, and it's clear that they have shared interests and are game for fun. The reception photos are nice. It may seem childish but everyone seems to be enjoying themselves in a relaxed setting. (except for the guy in the caftan nursing a gin tonic) I suspect they get along better than a lot of couples a will continue to do so.

It's not a Batman theme--OP was wrong.
Look at the links. It's a Nightwing/Batgirl theme.
R44 = Sheldon Cooper
White people with too much time...
Charlotte. Trailer. Trash.
Quinceañeras are the the epitome of too much time (and money) on one's hands.

I enjoy fairy tail very much.
Hey!! HEY EVERYBODY! LOOK!! LOOK AT US!! LOOK HOW ADORABLE WE ARE!!!
Won't some famous talk show person PLEASE TALK ABOUT US?!? Maybe give us a free vacation to Universal Studios!?!?
Aren't we just ADOOOORRRABLE??
So you think the GF agreed to this to appease her boyish groom?
I would love to see the groom and one of the hot groomsmen in a Batman/Robin homoerotic pose.
More like they got a discount on the photography if they allowed the pics to be used on the photographer's website, R50.
Too weird. I'm sick of hearing about weddings and marriage overall, at this point.
I'm with R41. All the bridesmaids have different shoes on, the groomsmen all look like they were told just wear black pants and a black shirt (rather than getting ones that matched with each other) and I would murder any groomsman who wore those "footie" socks with their tux rather than regular black dress socks. Fail.
His nose is like an Olympic ski jump.
This is why I hate us.
Did I touch a nerve, R48? Go enslave some more races, honky...
I love that the dresses don't match. I suspect the bride told all her girlfriends to just wear their Little Black Dress, most girls already own one.
That's what every bride ought to do, instead of making her friends and relations buy expensive dresses they can never wear again.
I'm having a Two Girls One Cup themed wedding.
LOL @ honky.
That always makes me giggle.
I think it's sweet and endearing and I wish them well.
Their flowers were made from comic books. They said they saved a fortune on flowers this way and they never die.
Looks like they enjoyed their wedding and it was what they wanted to do.
There are some [bold]real[/bold] cunts posting in this thread.
I think its cute. The wedding and memories are theirs, not yours, so many of you cunts can go fuck off and die
I wouldn't want this for my son or daughter.
Any loving mother would die from humiliation at this wedding. It's like they wanted to embarass their parents!
The epitome of white trash.
[quote] Granted it is usually with a vintage bottle of Louis Loederer Cristal now, but the memories mean a lot.
All Cristal is vintage.
They not look like Batman. At all.
I like the flowers.
If you can't say something nice...
It's there wedding and they are not hurting anyone. Let them have their fun. It looks like it would far more entertaining than the stuffy, boring, traditional weddings everyone else has.
If they paid for their wedding themselves, then of course, knock themselves out.
If I was a parent of either one of these ree-tards, I would have told them not only no, but HELL NO.
R75 Then the two can congratulate themselves on having parents that actually care about what their kids want instead of forcing their idea of a wedding on them. For all we know the parents are comic geeks as well. Whatever they are, they are not cunts like some of the posters here.
Dearest r76 --
I do not mind being labeled a cunt by you or some others posting.
The fact remains that there is no way I would pay for a "funny book wedding" to appease my son's or daughter's childish whim.
It just wouldn't happen.
No doubt I will stay up tonight worrying that this may upset you ….
Not to my taste but I agree with those arguing that it made the wedding more fun for the participants. Nothing wrong with that. We don't all value elegance.
R78 I'm not upset, just happy for the couple that they don't have you as a parent. Have a nice day.
It's not actually a Batman wedding. It's a Nightwing/Batgirl wedding.
And I think it's adorable, especially since this was clearly something that bonded them together. Their wedding was a representation of their relationship, not something pulled from a bridal magazine because it was "traditional" or "elegant."
Also I like that wedding party was unisex on both sides.
Dont worry R78. Im pretty sure if you had kids they would never ask you to pay for their wedding. In fact, I would wager they wouldn't even invite you. You sound like a downer.
[quote]Bride & Groom - US US US US US US LOOK AT US!!
I know what you mean. I hate weddings that are all about the couple getting married.
I work weddings all the time.
I see the same old same old all the time. White Dress, Black Tux, Pretty flower cake that tastes like cardboard, "Party Rock" played during the dance set while all the old people stare blankly cuz they have no connection to the young uns. I see a lot of money wasted on pointless stuff.
And I see a lot of bored guests who aren't sure what to do with themselves during the reception and are just waiting for the evening to be over.
I would TOTALLY loved to have been at this wedding. And I'm sure the staff on it thought it was finally an interesting gig to work! They had a fun theme, not pretentious. They probably saved money & were able to spend it on giving everyone a fun time.
Even the oldest among them were bound to find themselves smiling and laughing at the cute antics.
I mean it's not like she was in a catsuit & he was in a codpiece (though I wouldn't mind seeing that).
I can look at these pics and totally get a sense of who they are and what their friends are like. Yeah, they're not my generation, but I hope that I'd be so creative if I were their age.
I say job well done.
Well said R84.
GET OFF MY LAWN!!!
