Chris has finally moved out into her own apartment, and I have been trying to help her to furnish it. How exciting – her very first home of her own! I was hoping to get her a nice drinks tray table to accessorize her place. I know she really likes the styles of Baker furniture, and I have been having a really hard time to find baker furniture here in a local store. So I went online to see if there are any local stores that carry it, and I have found a few websites that claim to carry it, but nobody locally. And the websites that I found that show the furniture won’t even list the prices! How frustrating is that!
A couple’s wedding guest book can be so much more than just a book that people sign their names as some type of roster sheet to know who attended the wedding. A wedding guest book can be a special place in which friends and family leave words of encouragement and support for the bride and group along with signing in that they were in attendance. How much more special would that be than a plain list of names.
It also doesn’t have to be just a regular book. You could have your guests leave messages for the you in or on something other than I book. For example, how about having everyone sign a picture of the bride and groom. A picture is something you could have framed and display in your home and remember the special day each time you walk past it in your home. I know I personally would see a picture hanging in my home more often than I would dig out a guest book in a box somewhere in the attic.
If you want to go with a more traditional guest book there are many styles that you can choose from to coordinate with your wedding theme and colors. I bet you could even have a guest book custom made to match all of the other decorations. Just remember that the wedding guest book can be for more than just a list of guests in attendance.
There are a variety of different options to choose from when it comes to wine wedding favors. You can offer wine stoppers in a shape that will compliment your theme. For example a star fish for a beach wedding or a snow flake for a winter wedding. I would love to see a double heart wine stopper myself.
Couples can give their guests personalized wine glasses The glasses can commemorate the special event with the names and date of the bridge and groom. Every time the glasses are used they will be reminded of the happy couple and the commitment they made.
Coasters are another option that can be elegant or simple. They come in both cork or glass and can add a touch of flair to your table depending on the design you choose. This option is also very functional and really who couldn’t use a nice set of coasters. These could make great gifts for people that elect not to drink wine or other alcoholic beverages.
There really is something for everyone when it comes to wine wedding favors. They also make great last minute additions to any wedding because there are so many flexible options.
A unity ceremony can be performed in multiple ways. A candle unity ceremony uses two tall tapered candles to represent the individuals. These candles are usually lit by the mothers of the bride and groom. The bride and groom then each take their respective candle and light a pillar candle known as the unity candle. The unity candle can be decorated with an inscription or monogram. It can also have a picture of the bridge and groom. Some couples keep their unity candles and relight them each year on their anniversaries.
The other way to perform a unity ceremony is to use sand. Instead of tapered candles the bride and groom use colored sand from individual containers. They pour the sand into one vessel that represents the union of the two into one body. Some couples elect to use classic black and white sand while others opt for colors that reflect the colors of the wedding theme. Often times a different color of sand will be used for each member of the family and everyone will pour sand into the vessel, this is especially true for unions involving children.
No matter which unity ceremony you decide to go with you can be sure to find candles or sand that will fit your wedding theme.
Have you ever seen burlap drapes? My grandmother was telling me about how when she was a young child, when she went to visit her grandparents, her grandmother often sewed things from burlap feed sacks! She was telling me that the sacks actually had pretty patterns on them because the companies knew that the home-makers were going to use the material to make dresses and aprons and decorate their homes! I decided to go online and see if I could see some examples of burlap drapes and I found some plain ones for sale at this website, but I am going to keep looking to see if I can find examples of some drapes that had patterns on the burlap.
