Random conversations

Posted on February 9, 2009. Filed under: crafty-crafty, inspiration |


While at the Aveda salon the other day getting my makeup done (oh, have I not blogged about that? *innocent look*), my stylist got to telling me about her sister’s fun and fabulous beach wedding.  I was poised to hear all about the over-the-top resort or the phenomenal food when I heard this:

“They gave us these great welcome bags with all of their favorite candy in them.  How cute is that?”

And then my world shifted on its  axis.

What she remembered most were the special touches highlighting the couple’s uniqueness.  That he loved m&m’s.  That she always had Jolly Ranchers in her purse.  That they met at a bar.  (Okay, I totally made up that last one; projecting, anyone?)

I’ve never considered doing favors or welcome bags, thinking them pain that I don’t want to take on.  I didn’t want to have to figure out what would make our loved ones happy.  Do most people like chips?  What about ginger ale – that’s a pretty benign drink choice, right?  Now I’m rethinking them.  The idea isn’t to be the Marriott, after all, making sure that they’re hydrated and managing their blood sugar levels!

If, as a wedding guest, you enjoy knowing more about the couple whose wedding you’re there to celebrate (note to self: duh), then this couple will oblige.  The mister’s gonna love another project.

Please, share your eye-opening random wedding conversations, will ya?  Or, better yet, take off your bride lenses for a bit (brides think differently than guests) and tell us what you remember about the weddings you’ve attended.

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
