We're going to do a Viking wedding! Oh, it's SO kewl. The basis for it is here, though there are some bits we'll be adapting. For instance, I don't think he'll be going to Ireland to break into an ancient Dooley grave to find a sword; we're going to get two new ones and exchange them. :-) The whole bit about Thor's Hammer in my lap for fertility? Not so much; we aren't sure we want kids. It can be pretty non-denominational, as long as we phrase things correctly.

But with this as a starting point, I know what to look for in a site, and that makes my life much easier. Squee!

This is the same kind of wedding that Snorri and I had. We talked a lot to Gunnvor and to some other folks here in our part of Ansteorra that a well versed in Norse culture and we got a lot of great ideas. Let me know if you want to talk about it, I'd be happy to give my input.
