Hello everyone!! I want to thank you all for the comments, tweets, and e-mails I have received this past week! I am more than blessed to have you all as my “blends!” Aaron and I had the wedding of our dreams- we wouldn’t trade one thing. We also had a fantastic honeymoon. We arrived home Sunday night, and spent yesterday putting things away, and starting to change my name! As you can imagine, this is taking up a bit of time! I cannot wait to share pictures and details of our wedding day, and the honeymoon! I’m hoping to have pictures soon so I can get posts put together 🙂 Until then, enjoy this post that was written before my wedding! Enjoy!
I also want you to know that I am slowly catching up on all your lives! If there were any posts I definitely need to read, or ones you think I would enjoy, place them in the comments! I am trying to sort out blogs, and respond to comments. Know that I read every comment you guys left and loved them!! I just may not get to responding to all of them. Trying to settle into a routine in a new house with someone new is going to take some time! Bear with me!
As you might have imagined, I didn’t stick to the “Traditional” process of a wedding in too many ways. I wanted our wedding to be different, with more modern styles to it. The first way we incorporated modern technology was with the game table, and then I changed up some of the accessories found on the dinner tables.
I want our wedding to be remembered for years to come. I know we will remember it, but I wanted a way to relive it each year on our anniversary. I also saw on Pinterest, a while back, table numbers that had the guests write a happy memory for us to open on that specific annviersary. I knew I immediately wanted to do this, so I started brainstorming way back when. Lucky for me, I received a Cricut for Christmas (only the best tool for scrapbookers, or wedding planners! haha) and was able to use it for our table numbers, as well as many more ways.
So, I made every piece of this. The envelopes started as paper and I formed them into what they are. I added the numbers on the front, and then typed up the saying for the back. The paper for the guests was also cut out on my Cricut machine. I thought it would be something nice to have each year to open!
The next added detail to our dinner tables was again something from Pinterest. (Can you tell I fell in love with Pinterest way back when?!) A lot of Aaron’s family I have never met, and I had some family members who hadn’t really met Aaron (but they actually didn’t come anyway…) so I wanted everyone to get a glimpse of us as who we are on an everyday basis. P.S. I really wasn’t a fan of number 5 on Aaron’s, but marriage includes compromise, right?!
Did you learn anything new about me?!
One last aspect of the tables that I want to share was something personal from Aaron and I. Everyone who attended our wedding meant the world to us. We were on top of the world just knowing everyone who was special in some way was able to see us on our happiest day! I really wanted to make sure they all knew how much they meant, and how grateful we were for everything they did to get there! Some stayed on for weeks from vacation, many drove in from out of town, some flew in and stayed on to hang out with us. It was because of all of these people that our wedding was the most magnificent day!
What special moments do you remember from weddings?
What is the furthest you have gone to attend a wedding? Mine would be Connecticut for two of my cousins in the same summer! We drove both times, but we wouldn’t have missed them for the world!
Are you sick of the pink and green yet?! I hope not! There is more of it coming your way!
