Believe it or not, men are capable of dreams too. It might be stereotypical for little girls to pine after their someday dream weddings and plan all the little details meticulously, but men also have images in mind for how they want the big day to look. A recent Ask Reddit thread sought to find out what, exactly, men think of when the think "ultimate dream wedding." Their responses really run the gamut, but they're all crazy cute.
1. "Mandatory mimosas for all."
"Forgive me for sounding too Hallmark, but I would want a small wedding on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean, lit only by the moonlight and some candles. No more than 20 really immediate friends and family, and mandatory mimosas for all. But seriously, marriage should be about yourself and your loved one, and I think over celebrating that special event takes away from that magic." —modernAgeTomorrow
2. "No formal attire."
"No speeches, no rehearsal anything, no formal attire. Yes lots of food, yes live music, yes open bar." —Pride_Is_Expensive
3. "There was a pig roast and a band."
"Not my wedding but a dream wedding as a guest. We all thought we were just going to a BBQ. We knew they were engaged, but they invited us to a BBQ. All their friends and family were there. It was summer, outside at their place. There was a pig roast and a band. An hour in, they said they were getting married. Surprise to almost everyone. Didn't have to dress up, bring a gift, everyone had fun." —vtjake
4. "Any wedding is my dream wedding, if it's with her."
"For me it's not a question of what but one of who. Any wedding is my dream wedding, if it's with her." —JiReilly
5. "Literally endless alcohol."
"A marriage for a king. All the groomsmen and bridesmaids get butlers and maids for the week leading up to it. Each meal tops the last one in a never ending cascade of flavor. Literally endless alcohol. The kids have a kick-ass playroom area where they can stay with paid nannies and have a blast. The wedding takes place in a mega gold palace, with a huge dance floor a balcony area that faces a fountain and hedge maze for walks in the crisp air, and where guests can make hanky-panky since love is in air. Greeting every guest and having a conversation like the Duke of Cambridge or some shit. Wife looks bomb AF and enjoys it 100 percent. Carriage ride away to an estate in the country side for the night." —RivadaviaOficial
6. "Giant speakers would blast Chariots of Fire as we'd para-glide down to the beach."
"We'd have the wedding on a beach surrounded by cliffs or mountains. I'd be on one mountain, my wife on the other. All around, huge horns would sound as the sunset begins. Then giant speakers would blastas we'd para-glide (tandem, neither of us know how to do that without dying) down to the beach where a whole bunch of people are waiting. Fuck me, that would be glorious.
"As we'd land, people would cheer and applaud and chant our names and stuff like you're awesome, and we love you, and so on. We'd get married by a Discordian pope. The ceremony would last 42 minutes and 36 seconds, because that is the exact length of Dvorak's New World Symphony, which would be playing at the same time. Even better, the ceremony would be a full drama performance with this music blasting as its soundtrack.
"Once all that is said and done, there'd be huge fires lit on the beach and a big party would start with good food, none of that lobster with caviar and blahblah bullshit, just burritos and pizzas and a BBQ and some nice salads and shit. Nothing fancy, just good. No fish cause we both hate fish, and don't want that smell anywhere near our wedding." —rhowaldt
7. "While I love [wedding shows], they've made me realize that I don't want a fancy wedding."
"Courthouse ceremony, potluck for friends [and] family afterward. Spring for a wedding cake because wedding cake is delicious, but otherwise, as low cost as possible. I have a certain addiction to wedding shows (Say Yes to the Dress, Bridezillas, etc.) and while I love them, they've made me realize that I don't want a fancy wedding. There's way too much pressure involved, and I'm the type of guy that gets way too stressed out over everything to want to deal with that, not to mention that even a simple wedding costs an absurd amount of money that I know I'd never be able to justify spending. Maybe if my husband-to-be were some kind of outrageous billionaire and $10,000 were nothing to him, then I wouldn't mind a more traditional wedding. But since I doubt that one is gonna happen, something more practical." —shiguywhy
8. "My older brother crushes his best man speech and everyone is laugh-crying, my dad tells me he's proud of me."
"Zero attention on me except from my friends and close family members, she looks amazing and killin' it, ceremony is 10 minutes long, my older brother crushes his best man speech and everyone is laugh-crying, my dad tells me he's proud of me, my mom can't talk because she's just a mess, and then we all get appropriately and responsibly drunk and dance and laugh and then go to bed exhausted and sleep for 48 straight hours. Then have sex." —stomptron4000
9. "Plenty of free beer."
"A cruise ship on the high seas, with plenty of free beer and motorcycles for one and all." —winkelschleifer
10. "I want her to be happy on that day."
"I want her to be happy on that day. Keep the responsibilities on the day of minimal, so both her and I can enjoy the ceremony. Make sure the food is good. Keep the alcohol flowing once the reception hits. Both of these will keep guests happy, which makes me happy. Having a backyard wedding would be much less stressful, you can set things up beforehand and pack up at your leisure. To me, it doesn't make a difference where it is, I'm with the people I care most about and that's what matters to me." —Nickel5
11. "I can just wear a toga made of one of comfortable thread and no underwear."
"In the mountains, with paid nannies taking care of the kids, so they stay out of sight. Nanny cams everywhere there, so people can relax and just glance at their pads to know their children are OK.
"Now that we removed the worrying factors, a bloody bacchanal, drinks available for everyone, with optional clothing, dress code removed, so I can just wear a toga made of one of comfortable thread and no underwear.
"A playground for the grownups, with slides, swings and all the other things we no longer use because we have to be mature and stuff. A treasure hunt, tag games, and paintball wars scheduled, and also, the place and the whole operation must be both cosplay and furry friendly, so everyone feels free to let lose their inner freak.
"Also, a few tailors and seamstresses available to fix your clothing or costumes on the spot, and to throw together simple stuff for guests who desire something different to wear at the last minute. Oh, how I long for the exquisite decadence of Versailles." —Aedrian87
12. "I want to get married in the morning and spend the day running around the park like children who are madly in love."
"Just the two of us alone at Disney. I want to get married in the morning and spend the day running around the park like children who are madly in love having the time of their lives. I want to get married on the beach at the Polynesian resort and have Stitch there.
"I've never wanted anybody at my wedding. Ever since I was a kid it has just seemed weird to me. And going to other people's weddings has made me absolutely hate it, so long and boring. So I just want a one-on-one experience.
"Plus I have never been to Disney and I really freaking wanna go!" —Antonio_Browns_Smile
