OK, so I'm planning to get married next September or October.. And I'va had plenty of thoughts and seen plenty of cool ideas that I would like to try and incorporate in some way..
So I guess my question is does this happen to you? And Any ideas on how to make this stuff flow??
1. My fiance is a DEVOUT baseball fan.. So, I thought it would be really cool to do the cocktail hour baseball style.. (We aren't serving alcohol becasue 99% of the people invited do not drink) Maybe have like peanuts and popcorn and sliders or something like that..
2. We LOVE Mexican food.. I could eat it breakfast lunch and dinner. So, I thought it would be cool to have ineractive food stations with fajitas or something like that for the reception
3. I like the idea of doing 'fall' type things (our weddings will be in the fall) like smores and a coffee bar towards the end of thenight because we will have lots of older ones there..
I think the final idea will probably be the hardest.
When my fiance and I started dating, we fell in love from the very beginning and of course wanted to rush into everything just like all new and in love couples do.. We knew that a marriage was in thefuture and wanted it to happenas soon as possible. HOWEVER, he was more responsible than I was and knew that it couldn't happen.. I was 17 at the time. So he sent me this crazy sweet email with a few Bible verses and told me a story about a child and a sandbox.
A child grew up and loved playing in a sanbox. But one day, his parents take him to the beach, and as they are driving on their way to the hotel, the child is amazed by the continuous sand and the huge ocean. THe child starts to complain and says that he wants to go to the beach, but the dad says that he has to wait until they get settled in the hotel. He paralled that story with our relationship. Before we got together, we never knew that the feelinges existed. But when we realized that they did, we didn't want them to stop so we wanted to make sure that those feelings never left, so we wanted to marry right then. The email goes on to say that just as the father had something (the beach) better for his son, God has something better for us if we will just wait until the right time comes. So, as our relatiosnhip progressed, we would always make mention that we could 'see the beach ahead'.
4. SO the Idea that i want to incorporate in someway is the beach.. either make mention of it in some way or something. i don't want a beach theme receotion at all, but this story is such a huge thing inour relationship that we can't get married without some nod to it..
Sorry so long, but this is what my brain looks like lol!!!
Thanks SSSSSOOOOO much for the feedback!!
