    Some details

    "This is actually pretty funny because we are having a tennis theme wedding. She chose this them since we both play tennis, and met on the courts. We were actually very close to being married in tennis clothes, so the bandana and "vamos" would have been fitting. In the end, we decided to go more traditional with the suit/dress, but are still being Wed on a tennis court, and still have the tennis theme going. We actually named all the tables for the reception after some of the all time greats, and will have a buffet, rather than meal served, which will include food from each of the slams."

    All we know is that she was a former high-level player.

    Clay court?

    That is going to play hell with the white dress.


    (and I have no idea what the bride will wear).

    Are you implying drakulie will be wearing a white dress? I think he is planning to wear a suit.

    I am more interested in the food from the 4 Slams. My guesses:

    Wimbledon: easy one, chicken tikka masala this being London. No actually strawberries and cream hehehe.

    US Open: Overpriced hot dogs

    Australian Open: Kangaroo meat and beer

    French Open: Some creamy pasta and tapas (you figure out why tapas)

    Kangaroo meat is awesome :) Not a lot of it here though. Your better off with some cheap, nasty snags and any Aussie beer.

    His political views are wack, but Drakulie is still cool. Congrats! Now you can attend toga parties with wifey.

    He'll give it his awl.

    Seriously though, A: Is this true? B: Are you (Sureshs) just trolling again? (like when you annoyingly harassed FabFed after he took the time to upload those pics of the Rafa racquet he bought, then he removed them all in response, good work, no really).

    Yeah because many people asked him for specs and he came in already feeling guilty about spending the money and looking for a fight because he was already hyper-sensitive about it. I never troll anywhere.

    Why don't you see what is being posted around here and then decide if I am lying or not? Where do you think I got the buffet quote from?

    Congrats Drak. I'm still waiting for my invitation. :)

    I'm NOT getting married on June 5th, but I do have a pub crawl, so maybe I'll meet a future wife there....

    Suspicious. Have you seen Confetti? I hope the bride isn't planning on getting rhinoplasty prior to the big day.

    Thanks. You'll be happy to know we have "Borg Table". :)


    You serious?? Congrats! I see you scheduled it *AFTER* the French Open. Good man!

    LOL. Good luck, and thanks for the well-wishes.

    yes, first wife. I'm trying to convince her we will need another wife to help around the house, but she ain't going for it.


    She is actually hoping I'll stay busy on the forum so I don't drive her crazy. :shock:




    TO EVERYONE, THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH. VERY APPRECIATIVE OF THE COMMENTS.

    Congrats Drak. My wife and I did not on a tennis court, but had a traditional wedding setting. Anyways, our honeymoon was based around the WTA tournament in Charleston, SC (Family Circle Cup). My wife was pretty adament that our wedding be based around the tournament since she loved it so much.
