please make mastodon attach EXIF to images with descriptions.
if you download an image from mastodon, it should come with description.
@Canageek Mostly boring, can be fun. Going with a friend or partner is pretty important to making it not suck, unless you A) will know a lot of people there anyway, or B) plan to attend sort of as an anthropologist.
I think ours was pretty good? Held outdoors in a neat place, kept the ceremony fairly short, and had *really* good food. (Specifically, it was catered by vegetarians.)
@Canageek I’ve been to a few weddings as a musician. It was wild. The drummer got into a fistfight with the catering staff. Would not recommend.
As an actual atendie, the one I’ve been to was a lot of sitting around listening to speeches and being awkward in a corner while I waited for the food to be ready.
For real this time: the WotC rainbow merchandise is back, once again benefiting Lambert House, now with stickers, banners, water bottles, and more:
Get your queer spark or dragonpersand (that's totally what that's called) on!
@Canageek There are a whole lot of factors involved in that answer.
1) if it’s religious and if so what religion.
2) if it’s designed to be long and showy or short and “efficient.”
3) what the reception is like.
In re. social function, most weddings are a brief to too-long bit of “we are here to witness this joining as this pair’s community”, agreeing to support them by your presence (implied, rarely spoken about these days) - and then
a reception which is a long social meal, often with ~
@Canageek I've only been to a few weddings, so I'm no expert but, basically, it depends. Big weddings, where I don't know most of the other guests, are not fun, IMO.
My cousin's wedding was pretty good because it was relatively small and there was a lot of family that I knew. Got drunk with my grandpa for the first time. 10/10 would attend my cousin's inevitable second wedding.
My own wedding was a blast, I think, because we kept it very small and mostly just close friends.
.@DialMforMara : WOW. This is the first time we've eaten out and they haven't assumed you are paying
Me: You've been taking the lead all night, I think they are assuming you wear the pants in this relationship
Her: Well, you DO hate pants
@DialMforMara @vi @Canageek #Japanese tends to fit your description most of the time (the few clearly gendered pronouns/substitutes that exist can easily be avoided, pronouns are all-around optional). *However*, it is a heavily gendered language in other respects, in the 1st person especially (various elements denoting a register identifying the *speaker* as within a certain gender).
