Wedding registries almost invariably end up stocked with stuff the bride wants, which sucks, because very few women are pining for Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, which simply lacks the feminine sensibilities of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. Ensuring men get something out of the whole arrangement too, Wedding Ticket Registry.
The ingenious, just-launched brainchild of a Bay Area wedding-frequenter tired of constantly gifting non-stick cookie trays, super-simple WTR lets couples skip Pottery Barn and register for tix to their favorite events instead. To show the range, here are a few actually available tickets, paired with the types of weddings that're sure to follow:
BC vs. Duke Football at Alumni Stadium: You need these if your groomsmen are getting shamrock cufflinks, you're getting hitched at Nantucket's Sankaty Head Golf Course, and it won't mark your first experience with sankaty head at a golf course.
Louis CK at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom: Held in a rustic Vermont barn, so your corresponding nuptials will no doubt include letterpress invites and crafty place cards, and be so ironic and nonchalant that your "just married" sign will read "what, we're just married".
Cirque du Soleil's Michael Jackson The Immortal at Worcester's DCU Center: Your big day will culminate with you alone at the altar after your fiance leaves you for the dude who requested BC vs. Duke tickets.
