Weddings & Zombies

You know what I'd like to see more of in wedding trends?  More zombies.

For serious.  More weddings should recognize the impending zombie apocalypse and its effect on the institution of marriage.  Even if it is merely an acknowledgement in jest such as this zombie rendering of the couple on Rock'n'Roll Bride.

No really, one of the first things that H & I did early in our dating career was create a Zombie Plan.  Actually, our plan has multiple back-up plans.  We sat down over dinner at some restaurant or another and we spent the entire meal hashing out the best methods of escape and survival.  As seasoned hurricane evacuees and disaster specialists (this is New Orleans, after all), we developed many schemes for various scenarios including river escape, upward evacuation (holing up in a hotel/office building), how to fortify his condo/my house.  We even discussed various zombie apocalypse types.  Are they living dead who've risen from the grave a la Romero's Night of the Living Dead or is this a more likely brand of infectious zombie plague?  Are they slow zombies or fast zombies?

All these things must be considered, people.

Especially if you're going to commit to marrying someone until Zombie Apocalypse Do Us Part.
