Ever wonder what a wedding in World of Warcraft looks like?

Posted by

Kellia and her husband were married in a “Pirates and Pagan beach wedding.” Surprisingly enough, this post is not about that wedding (as cool as it sounds). This post is about their other wedding! A week after their real-life wedding, their World of Warcraft avatars, Hamiltin and Rhialah, both gnome mages, were married in the Circle of Life, in the presence of members of their guild.

However, it may surprise you that a World of Warcraft wedding has much of the same problems as a real-life wedding. How? Well, you still have to find the right venue. Kellia explains,

“It was my husband David's idea to have the WOW wedding. (David is a self-confessed altoholic.) Finding a venue was the hardest, everyone had different ideas. The biggest problem was staying out of areas where something/one would attack during the ceremony. I wanted it on one of the floating islands in Nagrand, but David was afraid someone would fall off and go splat. Circle of Life is on flat ground.”

Sometimes even vendors don't show and your ceremony can get awkward:

“A last minute problem was that the person we had picked for the officiant, a priest from our guild, did not show. Fortunately, a Paladin from our allied guild was dressed for the occasion, and was prevailed upon to officiate. He made up a ceremony on the spot, invoking “The Light.” It was great.

However, we do not have ‘vent' (the ability to speak to each other online), so we had to type everything and exchanging rings was through the clumsy medium of the trade window. But it all worked out in the end.”

And their receptions can rock! “Hamiltin and Rhialah” held their reception at Bruuk's Inn in Ironforge, where the couple was feted with bawdy limericks and the alcohol flowed liberally. Later, the happy couple danced at Club Lyon in Dalaran where two DJs gave them a shout-out. Well, consider this another shout-out guys. Congratulations to y'all virtually and IRL.

  1. This is by far the most unique wedding I have reviewed in quite a while. I can’t wait to share it on my blog. Congrats Kellia and David!

  2. Ha, this is awesome! Makes me want to play WOW just so I can have an online wedding! (And have such an awesome community, actually…) The screenshots are truly beautiful! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  3. My husband’s best friend met his wife via a text-based mud back in the day. In addition to their courthouse wedding, they got married in-game.

  4. Cutest. Ever. I’d say it’s hard to arrange – not only do you need a venue, you need one where MONSTERS WON’T EAT YOU, am nam nam nam. Considering how many times I’ve had to corpserun today, this is tough. For me. Ahem.

    :’) I love the outfits. WoW actually has a selection of dresses, including a white wedding dress – and there’s a tux! I’d have worn my elegant dress or lovely black dress to the reception, and /danced all night.

  5. Love this! When we first started planning our wedding we joked around about getting married in game first. We even had the outfits and everything. Then we lost interest in WoW haha. Buuuut this pretty much the most epic wedding ever covered. Just saying.

  6. Love this! 😀 Reminds me of The Guild episode with a wedding in the game. I can also use this post as backup to let myself get married in Diablo 2, like my boyfriend and I play on together now.

    • ZOMG! I thought I was the only one to play Diablo II, evar. Everyone tells me its so outdated but I don’t care!!!

      In other news, on topic, this wedding is awesome.

  7. I have to show this to my WOW obsessed friend! Although his girlfriend may strangle me lol

    Still,this is probably the most romantic thing ever <3
