The wedding will be in the Municipal Office of The Hague (city where we live), not in the Keukenhof I’m afraid. :wink:

And yeah, it’s an awesome date indeed, since 9 is a Chinese lucky number also, meaning eternity…

I’m risking a spank from Shannen now, as she wanted to surprise everybody with our song choices, but I guess nobody here will attend the wedding ceremony anyway, so why not telling here already… These 2 songs we choose so far, and we didn’t change our minds till now, so I guess they will be played:

Entering the ceremony (Within Temptation – Our Solemn Hour)

Signing the papers etc. (no introduction needed… :wink: )

Shannen wanted to make them first, but when a friend of her offered to do it, we kindly took that offer. So we got 5 of those beautiful handmade cards, for the witnesses and the Master Of Ceremony. Also she made a little, but absolutely stunning, guestbook in the same style. It all looks very cool indeed… :)

999 is 3 Chinese lucky numbers in a row, 666 is the number of the biblical beast, and 69 is a pleasant sexual position. And? :lol:

No, that is not very common to do in NL actually, so it didn’t slip our minds so far… The ceremony will go like this: a host will receive the few guests and bring them to their chairs. Then the music starts (first song) and Shannen and me enter the room and walk to our chairs and sit down. Meanwhile the guests are applauding maybe, I don’t know. In our case, we get married in the Eastern style 1001 Nights room, so the chair of the couple will be with canopies and all… should be very romantic, I guess. Then the wedding official will do a speech in English and Dutch, then Shannen and me exchange our wedding rings, then sign the official wedding papers with the witnesses (meanwhile song 2, the Smashing Pumpkins, will be played! 8) ), and then after a few additional words from the wedding official the whole thing will be over… in just 20 minutes I guess?

This is a pic of the room where we go after the ceremony, where we will shake hands with the guests:

Dramatic? Dramatic you say? We will ROCK the joint through the roof! :lol:

But yeah, Sharon den Adel is quite the singer indeed. Within Temptation is Shannens’ favourite band, and I like that band too of course, otherwise I wouldn’t want them on our wedding… :wink: So we had no issues picking the 2 songs for the ceremony, as Shannen came up with the Smashing Pumpkins song, and I came up with the song of Within Temptation, and we both did not protest at all to each others’ choices… :wink:
