Why get married in Italy?

What better place to honor the Flying Spaghetti Monster?

I can’t make it, can I still send a gift?

We’re sorry that you can’t join us. We appreciate you thinking about us and wanting to give us a gift. Given that we’ve just moved to Spain and are starting a new life together, we are still purchasing quite a few items for our household.  Unfortunately, we’ve found that shipping items to our apartment is rather unreliable, and since we don’t have a vehicle, we have been purchasing just a few items at a time at local stores.  Please contribute to our wedding gift fund so that we can continue to purchase what we need locally as we settle in.

I really, really want to go, but I can’t afford it!

We’re hoping to collect enough donations to give four $750 scholarships. These scholarships should cover most of the airfare. However, scholarship recipients still need to cover the rest of the airfare and additional travel costs in Italy, so the trip will not be free. Find out more on the Join Us page.

Why are you wearing colanders in the photo on the homepage?

Neither of us are religious, and we’ve decided to be playful and lighthearted. The Flying Spaghetti Monster and Pastafarian approaches to life fit with our views and wedding location. Read more about the plans for our ceremony.
