A Flying Spaghetti Monster Wedding

From formspring.me: What are the guidelines to a Flying Spagetti Monster wedding? Are the roles gender specific? Can they be substituted easily for gay/lesbian couples?

Pastafarians aren't known for being particular devout, so I'm not sure if we have any strict wedding traditions. But here are somethings you can try to do:

1. It is preferred to have the officiator dressed in full pirate regala for an occasion blessed by His Noodliness. But if you want to be accomidating of non-Pastafarians in attendence (like confused in-laws), subtle touches will do:2. If you're having a reception, you must serve at least one pasta dish. Marinara, alfredo, and pesto are all acceptable sects.

3. Don't miss an opportunity to count how many times you've been blessed by his noodly appendage. Pay the FSM homage on your wedding cake too:Pastafarians are also very GLBT friendly, so these traditions need not be limited to heterosexual couples.

Are there any other Pastafarian wedding traditions I'm forgeting? I may be out of the loop because I'm one of those Talk Like a Pirate Day/Halloween Pastafarians (I know, lazy - don't judge me for not worshipping every Friday).

  1. Instead of throwing rice, throw penne. Make sure the area where you are being blessed by the officiator is encircled by strands of spaghetti to represent prosperity.

  2. Little sachets of grated cheese are a very classy gift for guests. And you can't go wrong if you sprinkle eau-de-oregano over the tablecloth and napkins.

  3. Actually throwing Stelline would be better since they're a LOT smaller and come in star shapes which is cute. There are other non-star-shaped tiny pastas that would work better than penne.
