We're having our wedding ceremony at Burning Man.
At first I wrote out this really lengthy email, trying to explain what Burning Man is to a bunch of people who have no clue. It was a giant wall of text that got completely out of control (it's so hard to explain!). I knew I had to trim it down to the basics.

We created and sent out what is essentially a Save the Date email for the Burning Man part of our wedding, with a flow chart. Because we really don't want people to make this journey unless they are entirely comfortable with the items in the flow chart.
And while most people are a “no” (as we figured), all the responses have been wonderful, funny, and creative.
Here is the Decision Flow Chart I made for our friends and family to determine if they want to/are able to come to our Burning Man wedding ceremony…
