Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 184.108.40.206
Those people are quite young (he is 19, she is 21), still live respectively at their parent's place ; ie, they just own clothes and shoes.
What on earth are we supposed to bring as a wedding present to a Celtic medieval wedding?Should I give them a regular food processor, a stone mortar and pestle, a family of boars or a gold coin?
I feel grotesque.
Although, you know that the fact that it is a Celtic wedding does not mean that they will say no to cash.....
Cash is usually good.
<edit> Then again, I am a guy that gives gift certificates to department stores on birthdays and christmas. So don't go by me!</edit>
Fill the bugger with "coin of the realm" (y'know, a nice collectible goldie would be a fun thing - but you HAVE to give a HINT!) - they'd have the relevance AND the money so they can buy a few towels or whatever....
I dont know if this will help them in finding their first appartment...
>>I still use a mortar and pestle.
So I do. Mainly for spice blends or some purées and pastes. I could not make a decent tapenade without it. Mine is made of granite and has a very large bowl and pestle. Small ones are barely usable.
I will try to find some decent Celtic jewelry as filler. But these guys will defenitly need some furniture, so I think cash is the best for them.
>>which part of Celtia ..?
Since both of them are died in the wool Québécois, I will go for Armorica.
died in the wool
Not surprised in this heat. Best avoid the sheep, then.
I would humbly suggest a Celtic Sword. Perfect for protecting one's chattels against attack from the Saxons of Westmount, or the Vikings from Longueuil (because of the haircut, you see...).
I shopped around for Celic furniture. I certainly can't afford a bed, and believe a craddle would be a bit pushy for a wedding gift nowadays.
I think I will go there dressed as a druid with a Celtic mortar and pestle, and a little cash for them to pick some Ikea furniture. :)
The wedding date is kind of weird. It will happend on a Thursday night on Aug 29. I guess it has something to do with the phase of the moon and hope there will be no human sacrifice. :)
>>see some photos of you in a druid's outfit
If I where you, I would not bet too much on this.
>>Will the fair Rocinante be accompanying you, or have you not introduced her to the family yet?
Nah, Rocinante will stay in the garage that perticuliar night, whathever the phase of moon. I think she is too jalous to carry my GF, her two teen girls, me disguised as a druid, gifts and luggage 400 Km away in two hours, without some kind of protest.
As you can imagine, Rocinante was introduced to the family before I started to assemble 'her'. :)
But, really, she got no reason to feel inferior, my minivan cant do that either! But still, she pouts when I try to explain...
How can I explain this to Rocinante?
A friend of mine got married at an old Druid standing stone site in Scotland two years ago and that's what I did for a gift for her wedding ... it was a total hit.
Please be gentle ...Nice peice ...but as an Irishman I feel compelled ..nay charged to ask ..
What's a "wroter"..? ....T'would be after be'in a sort o' Bard would 't?...
Better put than even Steven the falconer...
Depending on where one's druids come from ..their outfits can be somewhat chilly around the magical implements and charms ...
Which is I presume what mac was referring to ..plus ..not in front a newly hatched bycycle ...
I slept over this one PBG, and when I shaved this morning, I wondered if I was growing spokes.
>>Take their wedding invitation and get it framed
It's a very good idea, since the invitation uses Celtic styled fonts and golden knotted "frame". It really sets the pace.
