Getting married at the burn this year...

Post by missypixi » Wed May 26, 2010 2:07 pm

Just wanted to know if there is anyone who might be able to help me out with my hair/makeup. If you or someone you know can help me out i would apprecitate it so much. Our wedding is going to be on Tuesday,late afternoon, if that helps at all. Thanks so much!

Wow. Getting married on the playa. That's cool. We get divorced on the playa. Just for the week.

Tell us where it will be, we'll all throw imaginary rice. Damn moop.

Maybe you could practice doing your own between now and then? (radical self-reliance ;) )

Or toss any preconceived ideas to the wind and let the playa provide in whatever form it takes...you may end up in full body paint, but what a cool (and memorable) wedding dress that would be! :D

Take playa, mix with water in the morning, let get cakey in the sun, break into tiny rice-sized chunks... Voila, MOOP-safe rice.

Congrats! One of the guys in my camp, while at BM last year (first time, and first I'd met him) realized he should never have separated from his wife. They are now back together (apparently she agreed with his sentiments), and they reaffirming their vows at BM this year. Fortunately our friend (and fellow DFT member) is a minister (via internet and $15), who married my wife and I last year (in RI).

Again, congrats!

My dear friends did a Hindu themed wedding in our camp. Campers love arranging the food, drink, hugging and photographing, videoing, sound recording. The ceremony can be anywhere in BRC, but camp is easier. Send the word for everyone to wear their finest! There are also some special gifted love hotels about. Congratulations!!

Sounds like private time in a personal RV!

I don't remember which camp was gifting a night in the beautiful room they had constructed and decorated in their camp which also had a small sultry dance spot decorated in tapestries and old gold frames. It was more gypsy or Bedouin, not an RV. There was also someone who did the same with a yurt. You might search the camp list and archives.

Or maybe your campmates would like to construct a dream spot - hey are you campmates listening?

I could also use some help getting ready for my wedding!

Post by TEFKAA » Sun Jul 11, 2010 7:25 pm

I am also getting married at the burn this year. I have been wondering how to handle my hair as well, and I see I'm not the only playa bride with that concern. :) If anyone is available to assist me with my hair, I'd really appreciate it with all of my heart. We have a camp shower so I can have it washed and hopefully detangled...I'm just lost on styling it without access to a hair dryer or flat iron. Please feel free to private message me if you're interested. We will be camped at 4:30 and Detroit.

MissyPixi and TEFKAA!!!

My fiance ("pittie full" on ePlaya) and I are getting Married on the Playa, this year, too!!! We're planning on doing our ceremony at sunrise on Saturday morning, in the Temple of Flux.

We have friends doing hairfalls for her, and basically a whole wedding support team! INCLUDING BACON FLOWER BOUQUETS! If you need to borrow bridesmaids, I'm sure we can find ya some!

Maybe we can exchange help and wisdom?

get in touch!

PS... A fantastic person to talk to is Armadillo Puttanesca. She's the "official" Playa Wedding Coordinator. She's been super helpful for us, and she'd certainly be happy to hear from you. I've never looked for her on ePlaya... but I'm sure she's around.

Hey there Hippy Dad!

Congrats on the upcoming playa nuptials! Your bacon bouquets sound awesome...I'd like to check those out.

We are getting married on Thursday a couple hours before sunset and are camped at Camp 54 at 4:30 and Detroit. Feel free to message me via eplaya or come find us on the actual playa. We'd love to toast your happiness with you.

Thanks for replying and I hope to hear from you or see you on the playa!

If you come to the Berserkus Boudor at 9 and F, my friends in that camp are also getting married on Tuesday evening and in that camp are several makeup artists giving makeovers - come along in the afternoon and they will sort you right out.

Congratualtions - I hope your wedding is magical xx
