My vision of the “perfect” wedding

30 Apr

The Wedding Look While I’ve been thinking long and hard about the things I want in the wedding,  like the look and feel of the wedding, the major feel is one of a celebration of love with our loved ones, a big get together or party. The other day David and I went to Michael’s and found all kinds of stuff for the wedding invitations. Thanks to David, we found the perfect stuff to make our handmade invitations, including stamps that have sheet music, acoustic guitar, wedding couple, envelopes and cards, decorations, and all kinds of other things. So now we’re both excited.

While we were looking through the all the paper, blank cards, wooden stamps, ink, cardstock, and wedding stuff David’s face lit up as the ideas started racing through his mind. I think he finally realized why I’ve been “playing around” on the computer trying to create the invitation, trying to figure out the look I want for the invitations, not to mention the type of invitation I want. Now he’s volunteering to stamp, glue, put together, etc the invitations, which means the bulk of my work will be hand writing them, stamping,  gluing, and helping him put them together.

But looking at all the things in Michael’s and discussing the alternatives for our invitations, as well as making plans to do them together made us both realize how important it is that we share in the details of our wedding plans. We discussed our individual thoughts regarding what our vision of the “perfect” wedding was/is. We talked about how important it is to both of us that our wedding be about us as a cohesive whole. And David now knows how wonderful it felt to me that he got excited about the plans for the wedding. It was literally as if a light bulb went off for him.

As we were pulling out of the parking lot of Michael’s I told him thank you. We often tell each other thank you so that we know how much we appreciate each other and what the other does, but I told him that I was especially thankful that he’s going to help me and that he’s so excited about things because it makes a big difference.

I’ll be printing coupon’s out for Michael’s this week and we’ll be going back this Friday to pick up all the items to begin working on our invitations. Our completely handmade invitations, all 120+ invitations. The couple that glues, stamps, folds, creates together stays together….

Next on our to-find, to-do list is finding an arbor/arch, getting the cake topper, and working on the details of the rehearsal dinner and the honeymoon.
