    STOP putting your weddings on Cyclone FB weekends!!

    Just STOP it. I will not be there if you do it. Nothing against you. I know we are relatives. I don't care. If you put your wedding date on a Cyclone FB weekend (home or away), I will not be at your wedding.

    Yes I know this has been covered before. Just got my cousin's wedding invite. Boom...Western Illinois game.

    I mean, if you have to miss a game, is this the worst one to miss?

    I will be missing the WVU game for a wedding. Might be "sick" that day. I hate weddings. Especially on fall Saturdays, come on people!

    Re: STOP putting your weddings on Cyclone FB weekends!!

    My fiancee wanted a "fall wedding". I told her either late fall (read: December) or early fall (read: August) because I wasn't going to make my family and friends decide. We're set to get married in Ames on August 18th.

    She happens to be the maid of honor for her best friends wedding on Sept 1st in Ames and realized how much more expensive everything is for weddings on gamedays. After about a year of her whining about me getting my way, she's finally realized I was right all along.

    As another VMB alum:

    Yeah... unless its a really, really close friend, gameday weekend wedding isnt being made. And those really close friends would know better than to schedule then.

    I've found it easy enough to fake my death to get out of these things. You just need a lot of relatives who are easy to confuse.

    I attended a wedding on the ISU/Neb (game back in 2006 on ABC) for a close friend. The wedding was in Ames and the reception was in Des Moines. Many of the people at the reception were huddled around the TV in the bar and not even paying attention to the reception. I felt bad for the couple.
