It’s Saturday! We’re day 3 into my big awesome and amazing meme. And since I’m actually in California at my cousin’s wedding, I thought it’d be appropriate to post something wedding-ish!
Well, first I was thinking, let’s do a photo tag of wedding pictures. Because, seriously, no one has better wedding pictures than mine. Oh, you don’t believe me? Well, it’s true! Click here. (I’ll wait, because you really have to see them.)
WAS I RIGHT?!
So, not only do I have THE WORST pictures in all of the world, I also used to work at a bridal salon. I mean, come on! How unfair is that? I knew all the trends and cool things going on in weddings. I got married in 1998. To me it felt like a cut off for all sorts of cute wedding stuff. The round bouquets? Started in 1999. Different bridesmaid dresses just of the same color? 99. Digital cameras. Certainly after 1998. The wedding picture with the large mat to sign instead of a book you shove in the back of your closet? 99. Save the date cards? At least 2000.
I still adore weddings, even though I kinda cringe each time I look at beautiful wedding pictures. In fact, I would love to be a wedding planner and spend other people’s money on some of my favorite wedding things!
The first thing I’d do was hire a fabu photographer. Like this amazing woman. *swoon* and *double swoon*
Then I’d do some cute save-the-date cards and fun invites. I adore these.
I’d want every single fun thing you can do at a wedding–sparklers while the bride and groom ran to their car, special music that didn’t come from a CD or a middle schooler, gobs of flowers at every corner and at least a few hundred delicious things to eat. (One of my bff’s, Yancy, had two-packs of Krispy Kreme donuts as her wedding favor. Talk about favorite things.)
One of my favorite gifts I didn’t receive, but heard about at another wedding, is going to be my new wedding gift for family members. It’s a goblet. You know, a chalice. A cup! I want to find one that would suit the new couple and maybe have their names or wedding date engraved on it.
The idea is that when they take communion at their wedding, they will use this glass. Then on their anniversaries, they take communion again from that same glass, reminding themselves of the vows they made to each other and to God. Isn’t that great?!
So, what’s your good wedding tip? Favorite gift? Horror story? Wish-you-woulda-done?
Spill it! I LOVE wedding stuff!
