A long time ago, I asked Mami Boa if I could use her wedding glasses if they were still around. She answered in the affirmative, super excited that we will be including a memento for her wedding into our big day. I finally saw the glasses this weekend and I’m totally in love.
Straight out of the box where they have been stored for almost 25 years
With a little TLC, some cleaning and a little shine on the silver part, they will look as good as new. We had a little scare with one of them when the cup came apart form the stem, but it wasn’t anything a little glue couldn’t handle.
I’m so glad my parents kept these after all these years. It gives us the opportunity to honor their marriage and incorporate it into our wedding in a deeply personal way. As soon as I saw them, my eyes got all misty eyed thinking that in a few days we will be toasting to our marriage with the same glasses my parents did, years ago. I find something about that incredibly romantic, and hopefully a little of their great marriage juju will rub off on us.
Will you be incorporating a memento of your parents’ wedding into your own?
