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.
