Can you handle a Burning Man wedding? Use this flow chart to find out… #Invitations#burning man#guests#save the date Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Feb 5 2014) Guest post by galaxygirl We're having our wedding ceremony at Burning Man. At first I wrote out this really lengthy email, trying to explain what Burning Man is to a bunch of people who have no clue. It was a giant wall of text that got completely out of control (it's so hard to explain!). I knew I had to trim it down to the basics. Then during a work meeting, I had a moment of brilliance — a flow chart! We created and sent out what is essentially a Save the Date email for the Burning Man part of our wedding, with a flow chart. Because we really don't want people to make this journey unless they are entirely comfortable with the items in the flow chart. And while most people are a "no" (as we figured), all the responses have been wonderful, funny, and creative. Here is the Decision Flow Chart I made for our friends and family to determine if they want to/are able to come to our Burning Man wedding ceremony… Related Post Are there accessible wedding invitations for sight-impaired guests? While there are lots of invitations designers who either already produce accessible wedding invitations or can easily customize them for you, my first thought actually...

I often love ideas more than decisions. Muppets, spacey things, zombies, fairies, and spinny clothes make me smile.

I've had plenty of friends drop out of our camp when faced with the STEP process, so if you've got folks coming from far and wide you might want to warn them that tickets will sell out and they might have to live with a little uncertainty for a while. But your flowchart is fabulous! Reply Thank you! I couldn't figure out how to fit that part in a box 😉 We sent a separate email about the ticketing process today. I am trying not to worry too much about how that all ends up. eeeek. Reply My boyfriend and I got engaged at TTITD last year, in our tent, covered with playa. (I proposed to him. Ring and one knee and everything.) We will have a ceremony back in Defaultistan for our families, but we're also having a Burning Man wedding. Most of our friends will already be there anyway… I hope yours is wonderful! Reply Oh that sounds so special. I love it when ladies do the askin' !! I hope your wedding is full of playa magic <3 (I also really like telling people "Thursday!" when they ask if we've picked a date yet) Reply What a great and unique idea! Love the flow chart idea! Reply That's such a good idea! I think its awesome you're going to include all of your loved ones in your celebrations, one way or another. Reply This is the BEST idea!! Am trying to organise a wedding in Vanuatu and was feeling a little overwhelmed at save the date cards, invitations etc. Now I'm back in the game and full of enthusiasm 🙂 Thanks lady. Reply So neat! Burning Man is definitely not for everyone. I read this post earlier, and then was looking at photographers for my big day, and I saw this: http://www.nickadams.com/main/madsauce and thought of you. Reply I love this! And hey, finally someone to talk about my wedding story with! My husband and I got engaged at Alchemy: The Georgia Burn in 2012. I wrote a proposal on the Temple, but didn't think he would see it right away. It was only about 20 minutes later that he saw it and we were officially engaged 😀 We decided to have 3 weddings (I know, 3 freaking weddings!!) One for family (15 people), one for the pagan friends (50-ish people), and one at Alchemy 2013. We had the Lamp Lighters escort us up the hill to the Temple and had an amazing and emotional ceremony under the full moon. I would estimate about 300 people showed up and we didn't know half of them! It was so perfect. Hooray for other Burners! And good luck! Reply I love this!!! Thank you for creating this work of art 🙂 Reply Hi Stacie, pls. send me some details, especially date/time of the wedding.. i´d love to shoot your wedding, but have to check if ig goes with my schedule.. rob firstname.lastname@example.org Reply Love this! We're planning a Playa wedding in 2016. We know family most likely will not be attending (and we are very ok with that 😉 and most of our friends are already Burners, though a few invitees are not, and I will share your flow chart with them! Perfect. I'd love to hear about your wedding experience, have you written about it somewhere? We'll be looking for a photographer, and are trying to figure out how to do a reception back at our camp.
