And in Bachelor News

Melissa and I decided over the weekend we're going to get married in Rome. Just a little ceremony. Since neither of us wear jewelry (except I wear a watch for practical purposes, and a necklace, pretty much out of habit) we've decided to buy a couple of inexpensive jobbies while in Rome, which we'll maybe display in some sort of wedding memory display box or something when we're back home. We're tentatively slating this for sometime in 2007.

I love being non-traditional.

Oh, we won't be doing a reception in Rome, just a small wedding ceremony. Any reception we do would be back in the States, but right now we have no reception plans.

Congratulations, Ryan! And my condolences, Melissa!

Non-traditional weddings are great, we got married on the beach and loved it!

Does she know that that means she has to look at the hairy/dirty mushroom walking into the bathroom every morning for the rest of her life?
She must REALLY love you.
Seriously, congrats........!

Wow. Good for you. Let me know how that whole being married thing works out. I've thought about maybe doing it someday, you know, if I get bored.

Rick, believe me, you have to be REAL bored.

Posted by: Ryan at July 26, 2006 08:19 AM

Non-traditional is good!

We didn't go that far with rings, because she can wear them but just didn't much, and I was willing to give it a try and managed to get used to it. But I totally understand the impulse to take your approach.

Cheap is good too. Ours weren't especially, but they're very simple white gold bands. We bought them at a mall jewelry store in Fresno at the last minute. Though not as last minute as buying them in Vegas itself.

A guy I used to work with got married in Rome. Must be more popular than I'd have expected.
