I’ve heard of “going green” for a wedding, but this takes it to a whole ‘nother, literal level…
As you can see, this Jersey couple tied the knot dressed as Shrek and Princess Fiona from — you guessed it — the animated film Shrek. Paul Bellas, 42 and his wife Heidi Coxshall, 30, originally wanted a beach wedding, but you’re not allowed to do that in New Jersey. So they went with the natural second choice: an ogre-themed wedding at the Radisson.
Why Shrek? Because it’s their four-year-old son’s favorite movie. Meanwhile, he dressed like Donkey and the guests dressed like other fairytale characters. Which is kind of awesome.
No word on whether they served rat and toad-based hors d’oeuvres at the reception.
I’m just glad I didn’t have to take our kids’ interests into account when I got married. It was hard enough on my grandma when I had two guys stand up for me instead of bridesmaids. Watching Mr. Candy and I exchange vows while dressed as Mike and Sully from Monsters Inc. may have just sent her over the edge. (“Do you take this man to be your lawfully wedded husband?” “I… BOO!” Ha, haaaaa!)
