The Wedding

  1. What did you do for favours? Our wedding at the end of August is going to be a small backyard affair with only family and very close friends. We were thinking of donating to a charity in the name of our guests but my sister doesn’t think people will care if we do nothing since we are paying for everything else ourselves. Any ideas?

  2. We ended up doing little tins of mint tea. We figured since Mint Tea is the unofficial official drink of Morocco, it tied in nicely to our honeymoon.

    I’m thinking I might type up another post about favours and the controversy around charitable donations (my advice: don’t go there).

    But as far as ideas – I don’t think you can go wrong with anything consumable. Little jars of jam, honey, tea, cookies, even those awful jordan almonds. Is there a special treat that ties into you, your families, your event or your honeymoon? I’d try to find a way to go for that.

    And of course, nothing is fine as well. You are already paying for the wedding, so don’t get a favour just for the sake of it – but if you find something you really like, then find a way to do that.

  3. First of all Congrats!!! How were the Louboutins? Comfy? I caught a glimpse of some of the photos of your wedding on Blue Olive and I gotta say holy crap you guys looked good. Your dresses were stunning and so were your husband’s tuxes and kudos to you for jumping into the ocean with your dress on..a lot of women wouldn’t dare for fear of ruining their dress but it made for unique and beautiful wedding pics. I’d like to see the rest of the photos if you’re willing to email me the password. Enjoy married life!!

  4. What a beautiful venue and the photographs are amazing so glamorous! You both guys looked like movie stars from the 40’s. I love the “From Here to Eternity” homage in the after pics as well.

  5. Really enjoyed looking at the photos, I don’t envy you the task of whittling them down to your favourites! Not that it showed but I’m betting that sea was COLD!! Congratulations!

  7. Thanks everyone for the compliments and well-wishes!

    April: The Louboutins were a bit narrow and pinchy, but they worked out fine. The shoes and my feet reached a compromise, and made it through the night together.

    Rita: that was indeed wheels of cheese! We didn’t really dig the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on cake (we’re not really “wedding cake” people) so we did a dessert course, then “cut the cheese” and served a cheese course later on.

  8. Brilliant photos. It looked like it was a perfect day ….. Is it rude to say how smokin’ hot your butt looked in that second dress? Congrats!
