Furry Weddings at Cons?
« on: August 19, 2004, 10:37:09 pm »
I had a thought today.
I have been interested in becoming ordained (non dominated) for awhile now and I had to wonder if anyone does weddings at any cons?
I think a furry style wedding ceremony and reception would be awesome, but I didn't know if anyone did it anywhere. I'd love to offer my services!
Anyone have any thoughts about it?

My mate and I were married in fursuit.  Almost all in attendance were also in costume.  Even the minister wore a costume.  It was a ton of fun.  We still have folks mention it.  '<img'>

I think if you get your "ordainment", you might find some folks who would be willing... depending on how many furs are in your area.

If I ever get married, it would be a wedding like yours. ^^

sounds like an awsome way for two furs to get hitched. Maybe I'll stand up in a fursuit to be bound bye law heart and sould to a fur bride. Good luck to ya with this venture ^v^

If you need a place to upload them, Mr Pony, I'd be happy to do that for you if you'd e-mail them to me.  I can put them up on my webspace right away.

Is that what is referred to as a "pawfasting"?  Or is that just the furry term for a wedding in general?

Got my photo page up! '<img'>
My Fursuit Wedding
We had over two dozen folks in suit at the event.  Due to it being a sunset wedding, we did not get a lot of great photos... but did get some nice video.

Oh... thanks to those who offered to help.  It was just a matter of finding the time.  Have wanted to get the page up for some time.

I'd love to host something like that.

Holy crap.  As soon as I read the word "furry wedding" in your first post, the first thing I did was dig up this URL.

Yep, that's us.  We were contacted by a number of publications and TV folks around that time.  They were fascinated that my mate and I had met in suit, been wed in suit, and still did suits (professionally and for fun).  The Marie Claire writer said she wanted to include us because we did not seem to fit the "typical" furry fan she was meeting.  Others did not use us for that same reason!  As one put it, "you two aren't really strange enough to be in the piece I'm writing."

Oh cool Party Pony :-D I have seen those wedding pictures of you guys before :-)

We had the opportunity to get married on Halloween, but my sweetheart is afraid of people in costume.

I think it would be pretty cool to be married at a con, although, I've heard that a lot of the cons now frown on it as it was stated a little earlier.  My mate, Raveness Wolf and I want to be married in the near future, but we haven't really talked about the ceremony, too much.  We aren't fursuiters, but somehow, incorporating wolves into the ceremony would be quite interesting.

Added: She showed me wedding bands with wolves carved into them and cake toppers with a male and female wolf together.  I liked them, and I want to use them in our event, esp the rings.

Another addition: Yes, Tiger Wiccan, as far as I know, a wedding between two furs has been called pawfasting.
