I think that Guest Books are boring too. I’ve been exploring guest book alternatives, and it will probably involve some sort of tapestry.
We’re planning a November wedding. November weather in DC can range from really pleasant to kinda chilly. So, basically it’s a crapshoot. I’ll have some sort of cold-weather wear for the dress, especially since I’m a big baby when it comes to cold weather.
I too am having a great glasses debate. I like wearing my glasses and, after wearing contacts for more than 10 years, they aren’t comfortable now that I have astigmatism too. As of right now, I’m considering wearing contacts for the ceremony and first part of the reception, and then taking them out and wearing contacts for the rest of the reception.
I will add this to my portfolio of wedding photography styles that I do not like. I’ve been seeing this weird, faded photo trend in a lot of wedding photos. What’s up with that? Hideous.
I am totally too cheap for flowers too. What a waste. Many other creative ideas to consider.
The wedding venue we were considering (until recently) also did not allow candles since it was a historical site and part of the National Park Service. I didn’t consider it too much of a downside. Too bad that venue doesn’t look like it’s going to work out anyway.
My fiancé and I have been discussing honeymoon ideas. I definitely want a mix of relaxing but travel adventure. So, no Europe (because who can relax while they’re over there!? So much to see), but I definitely want something else to do in case being a beach bum gets old. I’m also leaning towards no long plane rides (5+ hours), but who knows. Right now we’re leaning towards a “minimoon” shortly after the wedding, and something longer and move involved maybe in the spring following the wedding.
