Nobody ”˜Scept You: The Boys Get Fancy

While we spent half the day getting ready, the men showed up 30 minutes before picture time, took 15 minutes to unload and pack the ice chests, 10 minutes talking, and five minutes getting ready. Before Mr. Scepter got dressed, MOH/Lil Sis Dolphin delivered his super secret gift. We had agreed that our wedding and honeymoon was more than enough of a gift for each other, but I had something small I had been saving for a while that I wanted to give Mr. Scepter as a reminder of how far we had come.


When I was 14 I had a friend who saved her movie ticket stubs and made artwork with them. I’m not very crafty, but I thought the things she created were cool looking so I decided I wanted to save enough and create my own project. The next movie I happened to go to turned into my first date with Mr. Scepter. I kept the ticket stub from the movie we saw (and hundreds more in the years that followed), but I never knew what to do with it. So I stole an idea I saw in a crappy Ben Stiller movie, and turned it into Mr. Scepter’s wedding gift.


Like Mike may have been a super crappy movie, but it happens to be the super crappy movie that started our relationship, so I have a small soft spot for Lil’ Bow Wow’s plight to handle being a professional basketball player at the age of 13.

Once Mr. Scepter’s gift had been opened the guys realized they needed to get dressed ASAP to be ready for pictures, so they got moving. The only downside was that Groomsmen H seemed to be the only one of them that can easily and quickly tie a tie (the other groomsmen are all doctorate students that almost never have to wear a tie), so he had to help all the men out with their final look.

A short rehearsal was had.

The smell of popcorn causes a small panic.

There was a wedding day brunch.

Our hair became helmets.

    I have all of our date movie stubs – actually, he saves his, too! What a great idea – I may be borrowing this one! 🙂

    I LOVE the movie ticket idea! Now I have to dig through my memory boxes and try to find mine. I think I have it, and I think I will be stealing your idea! Thanks!

    I still have the tickets stub from our first date. We saw The Illusionist, which I’m really happy to say since I think it’s a pretty awesome movie. And while I didn’t frame it for my husband, I did include a scanned copy of it in our photo guestbook.
