The whole "Sun Allergy" thing.

I keep trying to tell them. Sometimes they just don't believe that I'm a vampire I think. They think that they can just escort me out into the light. That I'll just come out for day parties, and that I can't wait for that daytime date with the handsome mortal man.

But nope! I gotta show them all the hard way. So after a late nigt of partying, just before I have to descend into the dark earth, I'll have to let them see how even a peak at the new morning sun can cause my flesh to start smoking. Cooked flesh of a vampire is not a pleasant smell either! That usually puts an end to it. At least for those people. So many I have to drink their blood and slay them for trying to take me "into the light."

"Oh, but you're such a pretty girl, and so polite, surely, you are not one of those awful beasts! Surely you can be saved easily." Those folks, I definately enjoy drinking them dry. So annoying!

Vampire Wedding Portraits

Here is a cool idea, have a portait painted of you and your spouse as part of your Vampire themed wedding.

Vampire Pictures - Custom Vampire Fantasy Artwork

You've found the perfect vampire wedding outfits and you've got your vampire wedding venue and the pictures have come back cool, but wow, a painting? The artist at the above link will custom make you a portrait, even share sketches with you for your approval before they do the final painting! Cool and affordably priced $135 for a painting. Awesome!

Vampire Empire

OMG! I have not checked my vampire wedding blog in forever! So sorry everyone that left comments that I have not answered you yet. I've gotten two requests to add a link to the website http://www.vampire-empire.com/ since February of 2010 and I'm just now getting to it.

I have not had much time to check out this site yet but it looks really cool. They claim to have "All Things Vampire" and it appears that they probably do. Vampire TV shows, Movies and books fan pages. They also have a store full of things like clothing, jewelry, contacts and fangs. Definately a page to check out if your are planning a vampire themed wedding!

They also have original vampire art and an artist who can turn a picture of you into a Vampire painting! What I great idea! I would love to have one of my own wedding pictures done as a painting! I will definately think about having one done soon.

How to become a Vampire

Vampires are a solitary group. It is not easy to get in with the organization. If you get bit by a vampire, you will most likely die. Especially if you are healty and eat well. If you are tasty, the more likely the vampire will drain you dry without giving it a second thought. However, if you smoke, drink, take drugs or eat unhealthy, a vampire is not as likely to bite you, or if they do, they may be less likely to drain you dry.
This doesn't mean you will become a vampire. Some books have suggested that you must be bitten three times by a vampire to become one. But most agree that you must be bit by the vampire and be nearly dead and then drink the blood of a vampire to become one. Whether or not a vampire decides to change you depends upon the mood of the vampire and how they feel about you! Have you become the vampires friend? Is the vampire in need of a companion?
Where do you meet a vampire? Most live in cities and come out at night. Cities where they can remain anonymous in the dense population. The southern states are popular havens for vampires, especially the city of New Orleans.
Some believe that a person can become a vampire by practicing black magic or studying the black arts. Although it is possible to become a vampire in this manner, it is not likely. The black arts are full of distractions from truth. Should you find your way to the ultimate source of dark power, perhaps, you may become a vampire, but you will have to read past pages and pages of deliberate disinformation. At most, you may only condemn your soul, but not turn yourself into a vampire. Unless you are initiated into the dark side by another vampire, a mortal you will remain.

Vampire Wedding Vows

My husband and I are big fans of all things Vampire. We love halloween and all things dark and gothic as well. When we decided to get married there was no doubt it was going to be a non-traditional vampire wedding!

We adapted our wedding vows from a Gothic Wedding Planning website from Orlando, FL. www.gothicweddings.org. Check it out, a cool site with some neat wedding ideas. I will write the vows we used for our vampire wedding below, we changed some things to work for the unique circumstances of our wedding but you may also want to check out the website Gothic Weddings to see the original vows on their site for more ideas!

Priest Says:
Welcome one and all, and witness (Groom's Name) and (Bride's Name) as they pledge their dedication to walk the night together.
From the night we come, to the night we go,
Cursed or blessed to walk the moonlight alone.

Sometimes another soul walks our path,
Then two become one, in love everlasting.
Come forward, Children of the Blood,
And welcome this couple to your brood,
Within each other, these two are found,
Bear witness as their souls are bound.

Priest binds the couple's left wrists together with a red scarf. The binding takes place over a goblet containing the wedding rings.
Stand now as ye will stand forever,
Like this crimson cloth your hearts are tethered,
This goblet's contents are your symbols of devotion,
So take the rings from the Goblet.

The couple takes the rings from the goblet with their right hands. As the Priest asks the bride and groom to repeat these vows.
(Bride's Name), repeat these vows:
I will stand by your side, hunt at your back, and fly within your Soul.
I will stand between you and all which would harm you.
I will shield you from the Light of Day with my flesh.
I will never betray you, for you are my Heart, my Soul and my Life.

(Groom's Name) repeat these vows:
I will stand by your side, hunt at your back, and fly within you Soul.
I will stand between you and all which would harm you.
I will shield you from the Light of Day with my flesh.
I will never betray you, for you are my Heart, my Soul and my Life.

Priest takes the goblet and sets it upon the Altar and states:
Above you are the tars, below you are the stones. As time passes, remember, like the star should your love burn brightly, like the stone should your love be firm. Be close, yet not so close that you restrict one another. Possess one another, yet grant each other the freedom to grow. Be undertanding and compassionate, and have patience with each other, for storms may come, but they will quickly pass. Be free in giving affection and warmth. Fear not, lest the ways or words of the unenlightened give you unease. For the Lady and Lord are with you, now, and always.

As both your arms and the cloth form the symbol of eternity, may your love endure through this life and all others. As the Gods and the old ones are witness with those of us present now, I proclaim them Husband and Wife, and thus are they bonded in Blood. The Two are now one. I present to you the Blood (Groom's Name and Bride's Name and Surname) forever bound, eternally free! You are husband and wife for all eternity. You may now kiss each other to seal your eternal bond of love.
