Oh Please, Like You’re Any Happier Than The Couple Who Got Married Dressed Like Characters From Shrek

A couple’s wedding day is, I think I can speak generally here, forever held as one of the most beautiful days of their lives, remembered as OH NO OH MY GOODNESS WHAT IS GOING ON AND ALSO WHY? From Daily Mail:

Jersey law dictates the bride and groom have to be identified, so the registrar had to watch Paul having his green Shrek make-up put on before the ceremony at the Radisson Hotel.

Paul and Heidi’s guests all dressed as fairytale characters from the movie.

Mr Bellas said the idea of doing a Shrek wedding came to them while watching the movie with their son Leo.

He said: “The essence is that Shrek represents true love. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like, if the love is there then that is what it is about.”

Awwwwwwww. While it could be said that getting married itself also represents true love and the idea that it doesn’t matter who you are or what you look like if the love is there, and that maybe you don’t need to dress up as as a remarkably hideous Shrek and Princess Fiona on your wedding day to make that point, and maybe also you don’t have to force your guests to dress up like the other characters in Shrek, IT COULD ALL CERTAINLY BE WORSE! They could instead have been home alone on the Internet wondering what it all means and whether or not more nuts in their diet will make them a little happier naturally, rather than celebrating their love around the people who mean the most to them. You Only Live Once, you might as well not be miserable and instead do whatever makes you and your sweetheart incredibly happy. But also they could have just not dressed like this? But also they seem good. But also maybe it’s better not to have your weird wedding on the Internet? But also maybe that’s not what they intended. But also. But also. (Via Geekologie.)
