Whenever I post about our wedding decisions, I usually try to offer some back story. I figure it helps to know how we chose certain elements or to explain the significance of one thing or another. But four our ring bearer details, I got nothin’.
Our ring bearer himself is pretty special. He’s Roo’s youngest nephew, a really cute boy who’s into boy things, like Legos, Batman, and Lego Batman. But I have to admit that, unlike most other things about our wedding, I didn’t have a clear vision for what he would wear or carry down the aisle.
So we just…picked. No Pinspiration, no color swatches. We just picked stuff we liked and checked it off the list.
He’ll be wearing black, like the groomsmen. With a black polka dot bow tie that matches the groom’s polka dot necktie. We don’t want him in a jacket, so he’ll probably be wearing suspenders or a vest instead. We still need to figure that out. (Maybe some Pinspiration wouldn’t hurt…)
Hey there, everyone! Yesterday was our one month anniversary—and we’ve had quite the month! We went on an amazing honeymoon, bought a house, celebrated my birthday, and started the oh-so-fun moving process. It’s been a whirlwind.
Even better—the last night of our honeymoon (in the romantic airport hotel), we got an email from Caili. Guess who’s got pictures! We were so impressed by how quick she was, and I’m ready to get rolling on our recaps. I’ve got a few last projects to talk about too, so I’ll probably mix a few of those in with the recaps.
Hive, you haven’t “officially” met my two best girls standing up with me yet, so I’m here to remedy that! (I didn’t actually introduce you to them in the bridal fair post, so I’m not counting that!)
First of all, we have MOH Bestie M:
Just another awesome day wine tasting in Napa!
I’ve known Bestie M since junior high, but we were arch nemeses back then. We shared a best friend, and the third girl purposefully pitted us against each other so we never ended up being friends. However, we reconnected via Friendster (we’re old!) in our early 20s and became FAST FRIENDS. We’ve been super tight ever since, and she is truly one of the best women I know. I’m SO lucky to have her in my life, and am so thankful she is able to share my wedding experience with me.
I apologise for being absent, guys! Mr. Big and I just celebrated our halfiversary, and it’s been pretty hectic here! But I will get back to regularly posting.
We exchanged rings, kissed, and generally loved up, but our ceremony wasn’t finished! As Mr. Big and I looked at each other gleefully, Celebrant J signalled for the music to start, indicating the signing of the marriage documents.
I would now like to invite our witnesses, [BMan Hunter] and [MoH M&Ms], to join with us in signing the official marriage documents. Once these documents have been signed, Grant and Eileen will come back before you, where I will present them with their Certificate of Marriage, and officially introduce them to you.
Details are a double-edged sword. On one hand, “attention to detail” is something to be admired. You have to hand it to a couple who goes the extra mile to make their bash sing from head to toe. On the other hand, “the devil is in the details,” and if you think long and hard about every little piece of the puzzle you’ll drive yourself up the wall.
I just used a dozen idioms in that opening paragraph and I’m not sure that I know what all of them mean.
