Great Wedding Ideas


New Milford, Connecticut, September 29, 2006 - Great wedding idea #1: the groom had gathered photos of the bride and him - from baby pictures to happy couple pictures; photos of their parents, brothers, and cat; as well as photos of all the guests; then projected a slide show at the rehearsal dinner. Much oohing and awwing ensued.

Great wedding idea #2: name tags at the rehearsal dinner, along with a sentence or two meant to be a conversation starter. For example, underneath her name, Sue's tag read "like James Beard, but prettier". I got "like Julia Child, but prettier". So we got to puff up our chests and explain many times that the bride and groom like our cooking. We also got to explain many times who James Beard was. (If you don't know, well, that's what Google is for.)

Anyway, I mention this to give you something to consider for your next wedding.

Who doesn't know James Beard??

Anyway, good ideas. :) Except those slide shows always make me cry...as do parent-child dances...receiving lines...seeing the bride walk down the aisle...and weddings in general. I'm going to be the most tearstained bride ever. :)

Who doesn't know James Beard? More people than we expected...

And fortunately, at your wedding, you won't be able to see the bride walk down the aisle, so that's one fewer thing for you to cry over!

(Funny, we had to ditch the receiving line at our wedding because it was pouring rain out. And we didn't have any dancing. Nor did we have a slide show. Sue did an admirable job of not crying, but then her grandmother just had to go and be rushed to the hospital...)

Anyway, be sure to include a couple mooning pictures in your slideshow. They're always good for a laugh. Just like at Band Banquet.

Says you! :)

Our wedding will probably be more like Band Banquet than not...but who knows? :)
