    ‘Tis been a long time since my wedding, and everything I remember is fuzzy (not from alcohol but from getting married EIGHT DAYS after I graduated from college). *sigh* Now, sixteen years later, we both wish we had eloped!

    I particularly like #2 and #3.

    As for #6, I bet there are some really creative guest books out now thanks to the popularity of scrapbooking.

    Hubby and I served communion to our wedding guests – it was beautiful and a way to testify to Christ at the center of our marriage. I love the idea of the communion goblet as a wedding gift!

    Love the handkerchief idea too. And the coordinating colors for the family. We got married at Christmas as well, and that would have made for great family photos.

    And yes, I agree about the photographer. We had several friends taking pictures, so we have a lot. But there are some poses that are missing and that a professional would have made sure we got. but we were on a very, very tight budget. I don’t know that I would change that, but in hindsight, I would have be more directive to those who were taking pics.

    I have a fun post linked up today!

    Under “handkerchief” and “passing it on” – I have a handkerchief from my grandma that she made when she was younger – it has blue flowers embroidered on it – I used it in my wedding, and while I didn’t make anything out of it, I will be passing it on (my family’s not quite as big as yours, so I’ll need to wait until my kids get married!).

    Those photos are beautiful!! I wish I could do my wedding over again now that I have a better idea what I want. =]

    I finally did a Top 10! Have a great day!

    I love the hankerchief idea! My brother and I both have hand-made hankerchiefs that we wore as hats as babies. When I got married, my mom had mine embroderied with Hubby’s intials (in blue, for the something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue) and gave it to him at a couple’s shower.

    I agree about spending more money on the photographer. We did, but I absolutly LOVE all of our photos! There’s not a photo I wish he’d taken.

    Great list Amanda.

    Our wedding party was not determined by gender but by who was close to us, I had a bridesman and my hubby had a woman of honour 🙂

    We had a time of worship with singing, it was so special to share in that with our guests and as soon to be husband and wife.

    I wore my mom’s wedding set on my right hand.

    Made lots of stuff on my own, decorations, bouquets, veil, favours etc, I liked taking such an active role in our wedding day and having things very personalized and meaningful for us.

  7. Wendy says

    We did a time capsule at our wedding, and all the guests filled out questionaires about where we would be in 10 years (how many kids we’d have, the cars we’d drive, careers, etc.). The responses were hysterical, sweet, and everything in between. We opened it up on our 5 year anniversary to check our progress ;), and will break it open again next year at 10.

    I still get a pit in my stomach when I look at your wedding photos. Urg! :-p

  8. Vanderbilt Wife says

    We had a funky guestbook with scrapbook pages, where the guests could fill out wishes and predictions for our life together. It’s so sweet to have!

    We also didn’t have a ring bearer and flower girl, didn’t have a best man, had family sing/read poems, and had our reception at a science museum. We loved every minute!

  9. Matt says

    Guest books are fun, however we are seeing an increasing shift towards items that will not live the rest of their lives in a draw or box in the attic.

    Caricature wedding sign-in boards have proven immensely popular since we introduced them.

    As a unique piece of art in themselves, by having a wide Mat this allows gusts to sing and provide their wishes for the happy couple. This framed item can then become a feature of the couple’s home as a wonderful memento of their special day, but also as a reminder of their wishes from their friends and family.

    HH & I took communion at our wedding. Serving it to our guests would have been awesome. One of my high school friends and his bride washed each other’s feet at their wedding. I wish I had been able to attend, because I think that would have been very cool to see.

    Seeing your wedding pics make me want to cry every single time. 🙁

  11. Wedding updos says

    Baked my wedding cake myself. Everyone loved it. Covered it in white butter cream and purple rosses. I can still close my eyes and see it before of me. And ofcourse my husbands face the first time he saw it. Great time.
    Love your site by the way! Keep going!

    Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

    Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the info you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m shocked at how quick your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G ..

    Here is a little secret. You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice. Yes, that was kinds dumb.. okay, here is a real secret. If you happen to own a website, or even if you don’t, you could be leaving some money on the table. There is a new system that gets top rankings by using the leverage of local search results and allows you to crank out site after site, in 43 specific business categories, and then turn around and lease out space to local businesses. This is a perfect combination of local search, local businesses and a system for automatic monetization. The true power of local search is still in its infancy and this is the perfect way to capitalize on this industry. I highly recommend that you take a look for yourself.

    If you keep your feet firmly on the ground, you’ll have trouble putting on your pants. Sometimes it is just the simplest of things that can make a difference. If you are into marketing, perhaps you have overlooked document sharing? Well, I have a tool that can automatically go get and then post content to document sharing sites, and help to build your search engine rankings. Take a look..

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
