Melbel Getting Married - Virtually - Online!

Updated on April 14, 2012

Here Comes The Bride!

Source

Torn between two lovers....

It's a wedding in Hubville!

Getting married isn't what it used to be. No longer is it the protocol of dating for 6 months while you wait for the candle to burn out on the back porch. Now, marriage is something you just do, when you get bored. If it doesn't work out, you just email your agent, rip up the contract and call the butcher because you are back on the meat market!

When Melbel received a propsal of marriage in her email box - I told her to just do it! Just as soon as I offered my kind words of wisdom - Thought Sandwiches appeared on the scene and said he wasn't planning on getting married this year - but it sounded pretty good.

Having two gentleman callers - when clearly she could only marry one of them - made me a little nervous...this one, that one, picky, picky, picky! Thought Sandwiches already had a tuxedo so he won my mental tug of war. Melbel wouldn't even notice the difference. She hadn't met the other guy either and that was beside the major point - Melbel and I had shopping to do! Vera Wang is out of sight and online!

How To Arrange An Online Wedding!

Source

I told T.S. not to worry, I would arrange the whole thing online!

I started the checklist. We need a good photographer. I contacted my buddy, Cagsil, who is a virtual magician with photos and he was available for the gig.

Next we will need a ring. A big one. The bigger the diamond the larger the love. Yellow canary diamonds are best. I mean, if some little kid in Africa didn't have to live a brutal life to make your hand shine - well it just wouldn't be a very happy wedding, would it?

K.G. will keep things real....

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams." ~Dr. Suess

Bridal Party

Cagsil suggested I choose nice, well mannered people that cared about Melbel and T.S., but that is where my expertise shows...I explained that the most important thing was pretty people.A photo shoot is necessary. Photos are made to last a life time! Make sure the wedding party is gorgeous because that is what goes in the album. Pretty = perfect.

I tweeted my other housewife lady friends. Drop the mop and bring it beautiful ladies! The online world needs your pretty faces for a moment. Just so I can show I am a good guy - I am choosing the housewife with the manner's book, LuAnn de Lesseps. Then, for the drama aspect we will have Kim Zolciak (she did just learn to spell champagne), Kelly Bensimon and the comedian Kathy Griffin. Putting them all in one room in dresses - well no telling what would happen! It is sure to be exciting!

For the men, we need really cute guys, so I am choosing Jake Gyllenhaal, Matthew McConaughey, Justin Timberlake, Ashton Kutcher and Taylor Lautner. Hot!

Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitations can be ordered online but really aren't necessary. In 2012 you can simply send a mass email to those people in your contact list, create a Facebook page and tell everyone where you have registered so that you can choose your own gifts. If you would like cash...simply give the breakdown of what their cost would have been if they had to attend a real wedding and request a donation. Invite everyone so that you can collect as many gifts as possible. It doesn't matter if you don't really know the guest if they are in your contact list that's close enough.

Flowers´╗┐

Virtual weddings only require that the bride and groom have flowers...so you could grow your own in container gardens or get crafty and make your own from Starburst wrappers!

Caterer

That is the great thing about virtual weddings! You can skip the caterer and just order a Lobster Gram for you and the spouse to be! You can order live lobsters, clarified butter, shrimp, sides and cake for dessert - all delivered right to your front door!

Cake

You can't have a wedding without cake. You can just send everyone photographs of cake! It will be virtually delicious and fat free!

Honeymoon!´╗┐

Melbel and Thought Sandwiches will be going on a virtual vacation to the romantic Virgin Islands and I invite you all to join them! Who can't use a trip to the beach? You can now take several versions of Virtual Vacations.

Now that Melbel and Thought Sandwiches are virtually married T.S. will need to get an online account and begin transferring half of his paycheck to Melbel's paypal account.

Congratulations Melbel and Thought Sandwiches! May you live virtually happy ever after!

Relax and take a Virtual Vacation!

    OMG! This was so funny that I was seriously crying. HAHA! It was so nice to see Jake Gyllenhal there!

    I'm so thankful as to have you arrange it for me. I was scared for a minute that I was going to have to elope in-game in World of Warcraft.

    A real life saver!

    Congrats Melbel! I hope you enjoyed your virtual wedding and honeymoon! You should be receiving your checks in your paypal account soon...if not...I know a great lawyer! LOL

    I can't believe how much you can arrange online...we might be onto a new business here - the virtual hook up!

    Yeah...Jake...ain't he cute! Seriously now! haha!

    Happy New Year! I am glad we both started 2012 with a LMAO:)

    Congratulations Melbel and TS! And congrats RealHousewife, on a very funny hub.

    That beach video is just glorious, thanks for the invitation to join them, will you pay for the flight?! :-)

    Since you don’t seem to have organised the cake yet, can I donate some of my muffins, please!

    My mouth dropped open and stayed that way all through this tale? I couldn't make out whether there was any real life happenings or in was an "Alice through the laptop screen" cybernightmare. I mean "thought sandwiches?" Enjoyed by Jabberwockies I suppose. Amusing and baffling Bob

    I see melanie's sister Julia getting the kick out of it! Well T.S. are you a calf or a toyish kind. I don't know how this thin on cyber marriage would work. Intimacy would be fake and even fights too!! instead of physical violence Melanie can send a virus to T.S. who knows....how about the babies...courtesy of Paypal?

    LMAO RHW! What a great way to start off the new year....making people laugh.

    You say you need some really cute guys, but I didn't see my name mentioned there. What the hell! What's the matter? Don't you ladies like pot bellied, middle aged guys? LOL. Just to let you know that part of the hub.....not so funny.

    If you'll excuse me, I gotta go blow up my date now. :)

    LOL Bob! Yes this is a total cyber nightmare....! We were just kidding around at first about how strangers will email things after we have published hubs. Sometimes we get rants - or people that say we are "stupid or ugly" lol. Then Melbel made a mistake and told me she had an offer of marriage by email....well everything went straight to into the crapper after that! Then Thought Sammies said he'd like to marry her...and as the sorry goes!!

    Haha! Happy New Year! Thanks for having some fun with us!

    Actually Melbel did want only middle aged pot bellied guys - but is straightened her out on that - you gotta get the sexy guys from 2011 dude! Haha! But now that you have stuffed that visual into my head - I can't stop laughing! LOL. Mannnn...Daffy where were you last night? Haha!

    You are absolutley crazy... this is just to funny and who would have thought that arranging a marriage could really be this easy! Seriously - this is what I should have done... or maybe I should have had you plan it for me. Now the only thing left would be to video the virtual wedding and place it on youtube for all to enjoy.

    Absolutley Brilliant!

    Can you believe it?? I was so surprised - I thought I was going to have lots of trouble getting a minister or reverend....but nope! Click, click! Virtual weddings! And virtual Vacations? Ok! That's a good one:). I'd much rather go on a real vacation but hey - can't always win right? Lol

    I'm not sure what is more surprising - ladies getting email proposals from strangers or the fact that this does probably happen! Omg!

    Thank you SO much Stacy and happy new year!!

I hope he doesn't keep his bride waiting too long though or he will need some good life insurance! lol I couldn't resist the urge to link your series when I caught myself typing "Bring It!" LOL

    Hey Kelly, this is absolutely too funny. Very nicely written and extremely creative. Btw- the pictures were stolen. I sent them to be developed and for some odd reason, they didn't have them when I went back to get them. What was even weirder was the location was a vacant lot by the time I got a chance to pick them. Weird, huh? One day a film developing store and the next a vacant lot? :P ;) Voted up! :)

    I won't lie. When I saw that you had typed "just do it" ...I actually thought we were talking about something else. (Note to self...read ALL the comments...not just the last one).

    This was awesome my friend!! I am doing a rewrite of parts 5 and 6 to incorporate your nutty ideas here. Really, how could I not? The visions of a brutalized African kid making things "just right" ...honestly...a tear to my eye.

    Thank you for all the congratulations to the online wedding attendees!! This explains why I woke up wearing a garter belt this morning...

    You Rock Dorothy!!

    This was HILARIOUS!!! I guess it really does shine a light on how marriage has changed so much. My mom and dad got married when they were 18 and that was not unheard of. Now Darrel and I have been together for almost 5 years and we are still not even engaged (although for a good reason) and we are almost 25. Still we are taking out time for solid reasonable reasons whereas other people get married with in the year and divorce within the next year. I have so many old friends from high school who are single, divorced, and have 2 kids already. Most of the kids are right around the 4 year old mark... we graduated 5 years ago. It is just crazy! People do not respect marriage the way they once did. Another great hub! Very funny :-)

    Hi Myth - thank you so much! I have to admit - I laughed a bunch while writing this:) lol

    I dated Dave for 7 years before we got married...we were engaged for 2 years...I didn't see any reason to rush down the isle either. If you love each other then you will still be together years down the road - marriage or no - and it is a lot easier to walk away if you haven't signed a contract! ha! I am so glad you are taking your time...and I am positive you will not regret that. I have never ever hear anyone say, "I so wish we had gotten married sooner!" lol Have you? Never thought about that before!

    I was writing something else recently and saying "drama is not for the work place" and thinking unless you are a writer - in that case drama is good!

    Thanks for dropping in and I am even happier you enjoyed the comentary - it usually goes south pretty quick! And I don't mind a bit...happy 2012!

    In coming future, i think, yours on wedding will be staging as reality. It's all convenient for us to see the wedding with out moving a bit, by just sitting in front of our system. If you arrange some best feast, so that, after having witnessed the wedding, we can have it at our home and could bless the couples just by sending some greetings through e-mail and some might send some money as compliment (in India we give money as compliment by register our name in bride's or groom's compliment note)through paypal. if you have an idea of making another one like this, please 'forget me not' to send an invitation, bear in mind, as a fellow hubber. Sure? Anyway my advanced congrats!

    Oh no PDX - I have real diamonds:) lol I didn't buy it for myself though...in fact - for my anniversary I retired the big rocks and got a smaller anniversary band! I love the plain bands...my brother in law told me he hated my diamonds once and after that day...I always saw them through guilty eyes:(
