Xanax, for the stress of gay summer weddings (SNL video)

A really funny video from Saturday Night Live, in response to the Supreme Court’s decisions on DOMA and Prop 8.  “Xanax, for gay summer weddings.”


“I used to be worried that I wouldn’t have the right thing to wear…”

 This is really well done. Enjoy.

    Oh, you must. I hope you can find a cleaner copy of the video.

  2. Oh god, I’d forgotten about that one, I’m posting it

    LGBTIQ wedding planners do it RIGHT! (oh no, not “right!”)

    Uh, I mean do it WELL! Yeah!

    I remember seeing this SNL skit with my father when it aired: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YmzfiTa1pmM
    He laughed uproariously at the time, but I think I got the last laugh.

    At mine, I got the bridesmaids all sh*t-faced drunk and set ’em loose on the dance floor. And rather than a catered blechy meal, we had fancy hors d’oeuvres (one day I’ll manage to remember how to spell that damned thing without looking it up…) and desserts and a well-stocked open bar.

    Essentially a big cocktail party.

    Attendees said it was the most fun they’ve had at a wedding in years.

    At my first wedding, the best man ate a hash brownie, passed out in a field and wasn’t found for hours, er oops, that was me. Oh no Mr. Bill.

    Or worse, a reading from “Grapes of Wrath.”

    Apropos of nothing, I’ve been to…I can’t remember the exact number, but something like six weddings, although the last time was ten years ago. They ranged all the way from “handful of people at a small courthouse” to “full-on Catholic Mass”. Two of these weddings weren’t weddings really, not legally, since they were for gay couples, but both involved that sort of vaguely New Age-ish neo-pagan-ish ritual that I’ve encountered in the Pacific Northwest. One wedding, back in 2001, was between a writer I used to know, a UK civil ceremony held in Hay-on-Wye. For that one, each of the two partners selected a favorite passage from a book to be read aloud. She picked something from The Return of the King; he picked something from Desolation Road. I wonder if they’re still together.
    (Sorry, wittering on here.)

    Pretty funny.

    “At my wedding, we gave out bottles of water and bags of Cheese-Its. At this one, they gave us two tickets to Italy and $40,000.”
