WHO: Only registrants who did not get tickets in the Main Sale will be eligible to register for tickets through STEP … if you fall into this category, you will receive an email inviting you to register. Registration will place you in a first-come first-served queue, and you will be offered a ticket when one becomes available through the system. You may only purchase one ticket through STEP; this ticket is non-transferable and can only be held at Will Call. A STEP ticket is only for you. [ADDED 2/15/12: 9:18 PM PST: We recognize the one-per person will dramatically effect the plans and intentions of those who originally ordered 2 tickets and didn't scam the system with a back-up order and were then rejected. We WILL look at whether there is any breathing room to this policy before we engage the final implementation. However, this decision was reached with a significant number of dependent variables and won't be easy to change.]

I'm not sure how much of the preparation materials you've read, but conditions out there can put serious strain on what may otherwise be solid relationships - seems like being first time burners and the added dimension of doing the wedding thing is just asking for trouble. Best of luck to you though.

If one of you gets tired and the other wants a nap, and the napper wakes up and can't find the new spouse anywhere, in a 50,000 person city with no cell phones that can take a while. Do you give up your plans for the evening and wait, or do you go out? And when the other person comes back to find the napper gone, do they do the same? Remember, you're tired and dehydrated and inebriated so it's easy to get very snippy very quickly.
There's also a looser definition of monogamy out there. Can your spouse kiss other people while you're there? Will either of you get embarrassingly angry at onlookers when the two of you walk around naked? Is it okay for her to give others permission to touch her breasts? And is okay for any of this to happen when either of you is without the other?
I'm assuming you're doing premarital counseling (because everybody should) but this is the kind of stuff should be sorted out before you get out there.
Otherwise look for tickets in June-July when those that bought them just in case back out.

The difference between buying a ticket from a scalper and prostituting yourself for one is, if you suck dick for a ticket and brag about it, burners will still respect you.
Don't listen to these sissies that think it might break you up, just because it's broken up so many other people. So what? If you break up you were probably going to break up eventually, and you might as well find out sooner than later!
I know I'm not the only person in the ticket-less boat, but I'm trying to come up with desperate strategies to get two tickets instead of just the one we *may or may not* get through STEPS.
