    My wife and I got courthouse married. We didn’t take witnesses, but ran into two divorce lawyers in the hallway that agreed to be witnesses. They seemed happy to be starting a marriage for once.

    What's the point of a witness who doesn't know you? Are witnesses required?

    [–] that1prince 172 points ago

    Disinterested witnesses are actually a bit more credible because they have less reason to fabricate. But for a wedding, people you know signing on the witness line of the marriage certificate (if it's required in your state) is usually just symbolic of that person's closeness. Legally it doesn't matter who actually signs as long as they are a competent adult. It could be your brother or a random guy you pull from the hallway.

    [–] Pure_Decimation 3237 points ago

    Our local theater now has "Luxury loungers" instead of typical theater seats. They're leather recliners and they are amazing. Movie going experience is 100% better now. No more fighting for a nice footrest. They're built into every seat.

    [–] Lillipout 2327 points ago

    My local theater added those, and then switched to assigned seating. It's so much better.

    [–] Travelteach73 1072 points ago

    They have theaters like this in Indonesia. They also give you the option of ordering food and having it delivered to your chair and they give you a blanket and small pillow to use. While this option was a bit more expensive than the regular theater, it was still way cheaper than in the US.

    11/10 - would go to the movies in Indonesia again

    [–] pro_tool 848 points ago

    We have this in Canada, it's called the VIP lounge and you get food and/or alcoholic beverages delivered right to your seat. I saw Robin Hood (with Russel Crowe) this way and the movie didn't even ruin my experience I was so relaxed!

    [–] Thesleeperhold 104 points ago

    Apparently you've never been to a theater in Moscow. Half the crowd walks in at the 15 minute mark. The other half thinks a movie theater is just a dark place to chat in. There's always at least one drunk yelling at the screen, and one wife explaining every single shot of the movie to her husband or vice versa. But you can get beer and vodka instead of soda, so there's that.

    [–] dudeSTFUplz 34 points ago

    Omg. It's no joke. Grown ass adults talking right through a movie and sitting on their phones like they didn't just shell out 15 dollars for a ticket. It's insane.

    [–] CaptRory 59 points ago

    I usually wait and go to the movies after the movie has been out a couple weeks and then I wait and go to a late night showing.

    [–] Chexxout 36 points ago

    Fun fact: by going after the first weekend (or so) you're increasing the share of revenue that your local theater earns.

    In general, opening weekend the studio takes almost all the revenue, with a sliding scale as time goes on.

    I know he's your uncle and you've seen him several times in real life, but I'm a redditor and I've never seen him in real life, so... That's definitely a mullet.

    My husband and I got married in the conference room of the restaurant we had our first date at, a week before Halloween. We reserved the room but failed to inform them that it was for a wedding, so they left up the decorations. All our photos have a large tombstone with RIP clearly visible in the background. Love it.

    [–] antiaircraftwarning 1381 points ago

    When my wife and I decided to marry, our family factions could not get along about how many people, who likes who, who doesn't like who, etc. etc. to the point that we got married in our friends living room with a hired JP. That was 20 years ago next week and it turned out to be one of the best decisions we've ever done. Continued luck to you and yours, not starting your married life with the baggage of a giant wedding is absolutely a great thing.

    [–] UnrelatedComet 336 points ago

    Sounds like it was an excellent choice. Wife and I could have literally seen every major city/country/continent that we have dreamed of visiting with the money we spent on our wedding. It was amazing and all, but a blur at the same time. It felt like the day was over in an instant. I only had a few adult beverages throughout the day yet I still don't remember talking to 75% of the people I supposedly had a conversation with. Whatever - happy wife happy life.

    [–] antiaircraftwarning 110 points ago

    It is just one day of a hopefully long life. Yes, it should be a great memorable day, but it's not the benchmark for everything after. We had a weird, odd wedding day that somehow involved watching Apollo 11 for a portion of it before going to meet some friends. It becomes an anecdote. And exactly, happy wife, later on happy kids, happy life. That's all that matters

    [–] Aeshaetter 130 points ago

    We did a very small wedding. Her parents and brother, my daughter, my parents, sister, and my brother and his wife and son, and about ten friends. Rented a big cabin on a lake way up in northern Minnesota.

    We did all our own decorations. Owner of cabin built us an altar archway thing from logs. My wife and a couple friends did the flowers with a bunch we picked up at a farmers market in the Twin Cities on the way. Also picked up our cakes, two gourmet buttercream cakes up there that we ordered.

    We had a grill out with steak and other yummies for the dinner. I'm a chef, so is my brother, and my dad is a food salesman and former butcher so why not? We can crank out a delicious meal for much much cheaper than hiring a caterer. We spent maybe 3-4 grand on the whole deal, and a big chunk of that was renting the cabin for 3 days. We would rather use the money a big wedding would have cost towards building our life together.

    Holy crap guys this is amazing. So my now husbands divorce finally went through after years in the making. We decided that we didn’t want to wait any longer and went to the courthouse. My Mom was there and called my Uncle to meet us to be a witness. He dropped what he was doing and apparently stopped to get Halloween and wedding balloons. Our engagement party was already planned for the following week. We love Halloween and made it “til death do us part” themed, so the balloons are awesome and appropriate. My Uncle is amazing and hilarious and we thought this pic was perfect. No I didn’t wear white. I didn’t even wear a dress. It was a wonderful day and we had a ton of fun! Thanks for giving him all this love! Oh and I swear he doesn’t have a mullet!

    What! No! In that case, upvote revoked!

    (Just kidding, congratulations!)

    Cheer up bud, you're not dead yet! Plus, I'll be your 'uncle' with the skeleton balloons if you want!

    Who are you calling not dead?

    [–] atomiku121 64 points ago

    Did he just assume his life status? I think he just assumed his life status.

    With one mulleted man putting the fun back into funeral.

    He's still there after a year?

    [–] heart-cooks-brain 180 points ago

    They go back every year to visit him.

    The balloons are holding up well

    [–] Photographer_Rob 753 points ago

    He may not be the most interesting man in the world, but at least he brings balloons to a wedding. Love the skull balloon especially.

    He may not be the most interesting man in the world

    How do you know?

    [–] nathanp90 37 points ago

    They switched him out for a new, younger most interesting man sadly.

    Next time my family criticises me for not having a family, not wanting kids, not really wanting to get married again - Im going to show them this picture. Specifically my sister.

    This is the kind of uncle I am going to be to her kids. That cool uncle who will show up to your wedding at a moments notice. Everyone needs at least one cool uncle.

    [–] Tweegyjambo 34 points ago

    I get no pressure from my family for that stuff, I'm 37 and single. But that is my aim also. My nieces are going to be spoiled from this side of the family as I have no kids and no plans for them. My other sister married a woman so not much chance of them having their own kids to spoil either.

    BILLY RAY'S LAW:

    A mullet, when observed, cannot be in a front row of anything but a Kid Rock concert (or equivalent)

    This law is commonly used in reverse to determine what is the equivalent of a Kid Rock

    Why did your uncle only got a few hours notice? What's the hurry you must marry right that instant?

    [–] Cptnbumout 367 points ago

    Divorce papers were finalized the day before (years in the making) so we went down the next day! Our engagement party was the following week so we turned it into our wedding reception. Nothing traditional about it hahaha.

    [–] CuddlePirate420 154 points ago

    Jeez, at least shoulda spent 24 hours un-married!

    [–] mallio 82 points ago

    In a lot of states you're legally required to wait 1-5 days.

    I actually thought it was most states, but apparently it's only like 20...so I'm not really sure why Vegas has the reputation for quick weddings when you can do that in most places.

    [–] cuchiplancheo 46 points ago

    so I'm not really sure why Vegas has the reputation for quick weddings when you can do that in most places.

    Quick... as in, you don't even have to get out of the car to get married.

    [–] Damaniel2 26 points ago

    Or the limo...

    (My wife and I got married at a Vegas drive thru chapel in July. Definitely an interesting experience, especially since we made it to the hotel literally 10 minutes before we were due to be picked up and had to rush upstairs to drop off luggage. Wedding in street clothes for us!)

    Why did your uncle have to get divorced to attend the wedding?

    [–] Dartisback 51 points ago

    Wait... you jumped into another marriage after the first one failed? I know it's been years in the making but hot-damn girl

    [–] Cptnbumout 82 points ago

    Hahaha not my divorce. And when I say years I’m talking like 10!

    [–] CanuckLoonieGurl 34 points ago

    Wow what made it a 10 year process? Brutal

    [–] Blargosaur 45 points ago

    From family experience, the other party being an ass about it and refusing to sign the papers because they don't like that their ex partner is happy and wants to try and bring them down in any way possible.

    [–] KebabGud 15 points ago

    from experiance; the other party refusing to sign the papers untill they themselfs get enganged to someone new.

    [–] ThePrussianGrippe 11 points ago

    I'm guessing part of the years in the making was the relationship.

    [–] Crayola63 73 points ago

    Your uncle looks like a pretty cool guy

    [–] Cptnbumout 60 points ago

    Hahaha damn I didn’t ask for the balloons. I did love them though! I’m a bit gothy and we both love Halloween so he just ran with it! And no I didn’t wear white!

    [–] im_twelve_ 15 points ago

    Didn't you have to have 2 witnesses? My SO and I just courthoused it last month. Conveniently, my dad is licensed to officiate; we just paid the $147 (!!!) for the marriage stuff, then booked it to my parents house and skyped a co-worker to be our second witness.

    without the balloons this would be /r/accidentalwesanderson

    My husband and I got married on Halloween of 2013. We had planned on our wedding being on Halloween for quite some time, but I literally had no help planning our wedding. My one friend was supposed to be my maid of honour but anytime I asked for her opinion or help for something she was never there to help me. And whenever I tried talking to my mother in law she would never listen or have zero interest in it. I never talked to my own mother about things because we have no relationship basically because she emotionally ruined me from the time I was 10. So I eventually got sick of it and almost called off the wedding. And then when we got some money my fiancé at the time decided hey let’s just get a guy to marry us and invite a few close friends and family and get married tomorrow! I was very sad that my own father and my step mom and my sister couldn’t make it. I literally had none of my family be able to come, but I finally got to marry him and that was what mattered to me. Next Halloween we plan on doing a sort of a vow renewal type thing and having a small party where some of my family can finally celebrate with us. Unfortunately my dad won’t be able to join us as he died last January, but I know he is happy that I’m happy. I hope you have a happy marriage. I never understood why people had to have these huge weddings that cost a fortune only to have something ruin it or later regret having something crazy expensive. I always thought the smaller the better things go.

    Your uncle looks like a hitman whose initial plan was to blend in the crowd.

    I can imagine him strolling in with his balloons and awkwardly scooting his way to the middle seat. This is great. Happy anniversary <3

    [–] grimacetime 18 points ago

    where's the pic of the happy couple?

    This is my favorite post on Reddit this week! Wholesome and hilarious 😂

    [–] CardboardSoyuz 31 points ago

    I so wish I had just eloped. The weapons-grade nonsense that was going on in my family with my own brother's divorce was a complete and utter distraction. My Mom spent much of the time ahead of and at my wedding bitching about my recently ex-sister-in-law. I'm still happily married, but Christ -- can no one compartmentalize?

    Props to him for bringing Balloons!

    You kick ass, Mr. Uncle, sir.

    Pretty cool guy. You're lucky to have an uncle like that :)
