You could probably make them going to Michaels and buying the candies...


That's pretty cool, never seen those before.
In my day, we didn't give wedding favors, really.
But that's a long time ago and times have changed, I guess.

Wow, this is very helpful. Thanks. I do like the sparklers idea, but images of conflagration keep popping in my head. I think I will stay away from flammables as beautiful and meaningful as they are.

Thanks again for the suggestions. Off I go to check them out... Well I'm not really going off; just opening another tab.

Cheers



I am from MA so I know the nightclub fire of which you speak.

I think we need to have more details - morning wedding, afternoon wedding, evening wedding? Current theme (if any?)

Are you talking about that RI fire from a couple of years ago?
That terrified me, daughter went to HS in RI for a year or so. If she had stayed there, she mighta been there.

Yeah, it seems like everyone I know knows of someone who died in that fire that night.

If this were an Asian inspired theme, they could do a lot of stuff.

You see...I like their eco-friendly idea.

They could pot those moon vine seeds NOW and it would be sprouted & ready for their wedding and you really can't f*** them up. They just grow.

The thing is...it sounds like he has enough on his plate as is nevermind remembering to watering plants every so often...

A friend and I were talking about this...it is kind of weird for a guy to be so intimately involved in the details of this wedding...

Either
a.) He is whipped.
b.) He is metrosexual.
c.) He is in touch with his feminine side.

We are having a Sunday mid-day wedding. There is no theme except for trees incorporated in the design of the invitation, thank-you, place card, and ketubah. If there is anything, then it is a loose naturey feel. We are hoping to be out doors, but July in Philly may be hot. We were thinking of fans for that reason. I am going to be in semi-casual, organic, sweat-free-labor (probably not sweat free on the day) clothes in natural colors. She is going to be in a beautiful ivory dress with a basket weave design. She is beautiful already and will look absolutely stunning in this. We are working on all the wording and actions in the ceremony to be egalitarian. It is also a weekend event, so our different communities can get to know eachother. If you follow my picture posts in the chops, the base url is our wedding site.

perhaps all, but I like to think that I am just trying to forge an equal partnership. If this day commemorates our relationship, is it right for one person to design and organize the whole thing? That sets a paradigm for the ensuing marriage, IMHO.

I agree with you, stl. i wish my husband were more interested in family and such.
Last weekend we had a get-together with his family which was combined with a wedding shower for his niece. I picked out the gift, paid for it, wrapped it, and provided a card for him to sign.
He never even thanked me.
You rock, guy!!

They could also make a CD with a slideshow on it...showing pics of them younger, growing older, then together, then nice little phrases in between.

And you would only have to make 1 CD per couple. And it takes no time to burn them...

OMG, I worked in a gift shop at the lake a few years ago and we sold those.
They were freaking expensive.

The key is tracking down the manufacturer and getting them wholesale...

And you can scale it down to a very small one.

But they are free for us to suggest, and if they don't use them, well, maybe it will have inspired them for what they decide on!

To me, slwooter sounds well intentioned. He threw it out here for commentary, but he doesn't want any work to it. He says it has to travel. And it really can't be chocolate because it will melt in a July heat...

Oooops. well, I throw ideas out there for free.
May I ask what your other job is besides being a realtor, KT?
PM me if you don't wanna put it out there.
Or tell me to shut up, lol.

heh, I have put quite a bit of work into this wedding already. I hand sewn all the invitations among many other things. We pretty much split the labor between us, though she does more of the calling during business hours since I am an elementary teacher and find it hard to get to the phone with class going on. I really like the bulb ideas, and other posts have started me thinking. This is the creative juice I was looking for. Right now I am pretty brain-fried after three solid days of writing student reports. I was hoping to be done today, but tomorrow is another day. Sorry if you got the impression I was blowing off your ideas. I am very glad to receive them.
