Default Looking for in-game wedding information


Greetings, everyone!

Last night, I was asked to particpate in an upcoming in-game wedding of two good RL friends of mine.

Does anyone know if there is any information online available concerning how one could involve a GM as a priest, if there are any all/all white robes for the bride, etc?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

I have heard that you need to petition and set up a time and date for a GM to help. I have also heard that all they will do is provide refreshments. I don't know if that has changed, but these are the things I heard when my friend was planning a wedding. I would recommend a guild leader or friend perform the ceremony. For what it's worth, that is my 2cp.

The only GM support that is provided for weddings is usually surname change requests from the bride, or in some cases the groom.

Weddings in Everquest are strictly a RolePlay creation, and player supported. I've been to many player weddings before (I was late to my own, lol), and every one has been different. As far as the white robe or something, that I'm not too sure about. As a Paladin, I always went in my best armor. And now later in life, I actually have a set of dyed Fine Plate that I wear, so at least I match.

The most unique wedding I've attended would probably be Brannod and Maerah (some of ya'll probably know Mae, heh), as it was held on the steps of the house in the Estate of Unrest. Bards, sheesh.

From personal experience, GM's are usually more than happy to assist with RP weddings and such. It's certainly a change of pace from the constant /whine "Soandso is bugging me!" Good luck, and best wishes to your friends.

You can get game staff involved with weddings IE GM/Senior guide, just use /petition to initiate a conversation to set up the details, be aware though that most times at least 2 weeks notice is needed to set it up. If you are into roleplay, most of the customer service staff are more than willing to roleplay the wedding out, sh|t when I was CS i even married a few people in my time, imagine Priest Dwarkarn at your wedding.

Ok i was married in game out side of the Hole near the pond and i did have a GM their who would have done the ceremony if we wanted but i had a cleric friend do it for us. The GM will bring great booze and wedding cake just petition a few hours before your wedding.

Tell your friend this could turn to RL as it did for Phalnor 1.0 and myself so be prepared!!

When I was married in game we had a Guide preform the ceremony. He even had the 2 of us grouped with him and asked if he could be funny with the Vows.

Now, for the Name change you need a Sr. Guide or GM.

Just a reminder if you are going to a wedding...

Everyone should sheath all weapons and remove your helms

And get some fireworks from a Gnome

Hail,

Don't forget the basics to have a fun wedding.
Good food. Wedding cake (sliced for eating, unsliced for viewing), wine, maybe a champagne toast, and then loads of various alcohol will get everyone dancing. You can make this banquet as basic or as fancy as you want. (I still have a stack of both sliced/unsliced wedding cake left over from the last affair I went to. If you don't have a baker, give me a /tell.) You may be able to buy a "caterer" to handle all this for you.

Location, location, location.
I think we'd all agree the Dreadlands probably wouldn't make for a quiet ceremony. Class guildhalls/temples usually make beautiful sites, but you have to remember to tell your guests to turn NPC text/spells off to eliminate unwanted spammage. Be considerate of the faction problems inherent in certain locations for your guests of various & diverse cultural backgrounds. Also consider the population density of the zone (deeper city zones in Antonica are usually virtually empty) you are in, and what travel arrangements might need to be arranged for your guests.

Dress: Shiny armor for the groom looks snazzy, while a robe looks nice for the bride. I think in addition to the robe mentioned above, there is a white tunic that looks like a robe that can be made with tradeskills, but I don't recall what it is. (Sorry.) Your guests should put on their finery (IE as a shaman I would wear my shiny Hate BP instead of my grubby Fungi Tunic) and disarm themselves for the ceremony (hide all weapons/shields, though steins/bowls,trophies are appropriate).

The Ceremony:
The priest administering the cermoney can make it truly wonderful, or a complete farce. Choose the right person. Much like in a RL wedding, you should discuss the ceremony beforehand with the person performing it. I personally would rather trust a friend over a GM to perform a ceremony, but YMMV. I've seen people write their own vows, and I've seen people simply say "I do" and kiss at the appropriate times. (That's both IRL and IG)

Different strokes for different folks. Do you want jewelcrafted wedding rings, or plain gold bands (easily looted)? Choosing the wedding party can be made ahead of time, or last minute, depending on how formal your ceremony is. Will someone give away the bride? Hand over the ring, etc.

The wedding will be as wonderful as the amount of work you want to put into it. I personally find them a little silly IG, but I've enjoyed some very nice weddings, & the drunken receptions afterwards are generally entertaining. Be sure to SET the DATE far enough ahead that people can plan their play schedules. Putting a raid an hour ahead of a ToV raid wouldn't be recommended for example. Having one AFTERWARDS might be a fun way to decompress though.

Good luck,

Thanks for the information guys! I really do appreciate it.

Cred: I'll be looking for you in game to learn more about that robe.

/em thinks the bride-to-be is probably wondering what she got herself into after reading everything up to this point... hehe

The GM's are not always reliable so make sure to logn early and petition at least 2 hours before hand to make sure.
When I did mine we decided to have it in DL where the huge spires are and the quest NPC's. We waited for nearly an hour invis and had to call it quits after we both died to mobs (didn't know we were KoS). He logged and later that evening a GM finally answered the petition and changed my name. The group I was in got wedding cake and ale ... but no groom . Was a very sucky wedding !

Forgot to add that we did in fact petition 2 weeks earlier and arrived on the date and time specified by the GM.
BTW - They also do divorces lol

As far as the all/all robe, I know that if you are a wood elf or half elf or any other race that has no robe wearing classes then it won't show at all. There are supposedly no models for robes for Half Elves, Wood Elves, Barbarians, Vah Shir, Trolls or Ogres. Any other race, you're fine.

Congtats on your wedding.

Perliquin.

Yahyah.. Petition..

If you do it in advance, and they say yes, it doesn't mean someone will be waiting to do it.

You still need to petition on the day of the event to see if they can spare someone to do the job.

WOWSA!
What a wealth of information! Maybe I should think about getting a friend to do the actual ceremony. I won't need a name change since Iaedara was an orphin and never had a last name!
I haven't talked to my 'baker' yet, but I do have someone in mind. You may be hearing from me Kidin, if I don't find this particular baker in time.
We are still trying to come up with a location since the groom is a Dark Elf. We definately have to be sensitive to KOS issues. :lol:
We have an idea for the wedding rings, but we are going to have to get some help with that. I am hoping old friends and guildies will pitch in. Also hopefully Aedory and Dinas (our mains) will be moved back home to Emarr soon and they can definately help out.
The actual wedding isn't until February. We have been engaged for around 20 seasons now, so a few more won't matter! Besides we wanted to wait until after all of the holiday hooplah was over.
You guys are great. Love all the info! Any more you can provide will be GREAT!

In game weddings can be fun and also a headache or a mixture of both...just like RL!

My Dwarven Cleric got married to a Barbie Shaman a couple of years ago(thankfully she has the shrink spell for herself...wink wink). We petitioned 2 weeks ahead of time to set up an appointment for a GM (since we wanted a name change).

On the day of the wedding we petitioned 2 hours ahead of time and still the GM showed up 2 hours late. I think Moonlite was called in to handle it since we were getting restless and people started leaving.

I'm glad that Moonlite showed up. I've dealt with her before on minor issues and she was always a classy GM to deal with. She also had a pretty decent wedding script.

In the end it all worked out.

Hail,

If you do need some wedding cake at the last minute, be sure to look for Frekkels, not Kidin. Kidin was my Tunare server toon, & I didn't register a new EZboard username for various reasons. My dear friend Giah could make your wedding rings if you want to go with crafted ones. Do you have engagement rings now?

Dark Elf faction issues are a concern. Shadowhaven maybe, out of the traffic areas might be okay. Not the prettiest of locations, though the shorty area has that little circle deal that might serve in a pinch. Definitely accessible anyway.
Thurgadin also might work for you, there are some nice areas there.

An outdoor wedding might be another alternative, such as the Karanas or Timorous Deep, but wandering green cons could be distracting, and travel might be a PITA. A bizarre location might be the ticket for you. Something off-beat like a shipboard wedding on one of the boats, an underwater wedding in a small lake, or maybe on PoG if your guests have never hunted there before. Just some more ideas for you to think about.

The last wedding I attended was fairly well done, and we set up a gift receiving line afterwards. Nice thoughtful gifts are often just as well as received as gag gifts, such as "Words of Bondage", leather whips, handcuffs, etc.

With your wedding several months away, you may want to start dropping hints with a few close friends (Maid of Honor & Best Man are good to do this with) so that the rest of your friends can bring something fun or useful to you.

Take care,

As for location, if you and your friends have PoP, PoK has some beautiful temples and halls to hold a wedding in. Some suggestions of the top of my head:

- the entrance to the library: complete with tables and books on top resembling desk/altar/bible/wedding register/whichever, not sure whether the priest could wedge behind them though
- the museum (in the good part I think) : nice, grande, oval space with lots of room and some decorational objects
- the entrance to the various guild halls (good, neutral, evil part) : big space for the reception and little rooms off the main room for... uhm... some privacy

Advantage of all these places is no faction issues whatsoever and easily reachable from everywhere. Disadvantage, especially for the library, you will get some unrelated traffic. But then again, weddings in RL usually have their fair share of gate-crashers and by-standers.

If you prefer a quieter, open air and more tranquil place, PoT has some real beauty spots, especially along the beaches. Also, there are no faction issues, no wandering mobs and the zone even has something resembling a banquet hall complete with rows of tables, kitchen and chef. So you could have the ceremony on the beach and the reception in there. Unfortunately you have to be at least lvl 46 to be able to zone into PoT.
