Mr. Stingray is a very creative and handy man. He loves to get into different projects, mostly building things (tool sheds) and restoring things (like our Airstream!), but he can get down with some crafty things too—like my hand-carved engagement ring box!
However, I was a little bit surprised when he started crafting things for the wedding that were all on his own accord.
Mr. Stingray and I have so many amazing friends and family members and, as I said in my bridesmaids post, it was very difficult for us to choose only a few of them to stand by us on the most special day of our lives. When I was a (tad bit) worried about there being SO many people in our wedding party, he explained to me that these guys all grew up with him and he wouldn’t have it any other way. And I agreed! Who cares what Martha Stewart says about guest to wedding-party ratio. Blah.
Anyway! Mr. Stingray also did away with the idea of a best man. He refers to all of the guys in the wedding party as the “Great Eight” or his best men. I love it. He thought of this clever way to ask groomsmen to be in our wedding.
