    Open Carry Wedding?

    I'm Getting Married in May, we're trying to find a place to do so in Southern VA (a Plantation type setting) or possibly Northern NC, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to make it an open carry wedding, I'm just putting my feelers out there for anyone that has ideas of places that may exist for either the actual wedding or even a nice place for the reception.

    Naturally, my (new) friends would be invited - Obviously I'll hammer out the details, but I mentioned it to my wife (I have a strong dislike of the word Fiance`) and she loves the idea.

    Though, I'd say an Open-Carry Bachelor's party sounds like a bad idea, lol.

    Cheers,

    Randy

    Envisioning:

    Bridesmaids in black with pink accents, and the groomsmen in white with black accents.

    And a Garter Holster for the bride of course!

    Not something you'd want her to toss into the crowd, though...

    Well...since traditionally it's the groom that pulls it off and tosses it, one would presume that the sidearm would be removed first.

    (I know *I* would throw away a perfectly serviceable sidearm.)

    I had some friends get married in Asheville, NC at the Botanical Gardens. I didn't OC during the ceremony, but I did when checking out the place and setting up.

    Why so? A lot of bachelor parties involve drinking but I don't think Virginia has any prohibitions against OCing and drinking. Go ahead. Have a whooping good time. Four Loco for everyone! And OC while you're doing it.

    What could happen, anyway?

    Virginia is just dandy with OC while drinking, but somehow slapping a stripper on her hind end with the barrel of my 1911 just doesn't seem entici....

    OPEN CARRY BACHELOR PARTY IS ON.

    I jest. Mostly.
