Wedding bike ride
I love the idea of encouraging guests to bring their bikes and going for a bike ride around the park near our site right after the ceremony and before cocktail hour. Unfortunately it’s Jewish tradition for the bride and groom to be alone for a bit directly after the ceremony. I’ll talk to a rabbi about whether we can have a short alone time to allow for a bike ride before cocktail hour gets underway.

I think this is a lovely and simple idea to decorate the ceremony a bit.

p.s. Long time, no post. Apologies to any readers out there.
I couldn’t figure out how/don’t care to take the time to edit this picture down just to put emphasis on putting your wedding rings in a donut display.

I LOVE this dress!
This might be the style I want, except in ivory. I’ve been trying not to waffle back and forth too much over what basic style I want made, but I think this is so lovely and summery. The subtle draping on the top but still tailored is a perfect combination that I think would flatter a petite lady.

Bike wedding decor
Love this basic idea:
I’ll start swiping old wheels from abandoned bikes for this. What would be a good use? I don’t like the advice cards, but perhaps a good spot for putting people’s name cards for what table they’ll be at?
Where did you find the Delusional Bride - that is sooo funny
I think I found it on a wedding blog called Brave Bridge, but I don’t know who the writing credits go to!
Name cards and centerpieces.
I had a good idea today for name card and centerpiece and wedding theme integration. Each table has a theme fruit or vegetable, so each name card will have a little stamp of that fruit or vegetable on it to indicate the table. I will probably also use numbers alongside the fruit or vegetable so people don’t get confused. But imagine it, “Mr. So-and-so” next to a cute little broccoli stamp, then go find the table with the beautiful broccoli centerpiece.
This is another idea I saw when I tried to google my idea to see if anyone else had done it. The name card is attached to a food item, so the person gets to grab their name card along with a snack. I don’t like it as much, but it’s also pretty cute and appropriate for late summer New England.
You make me feel like dancing.
The pictures of this wedding from A Practical Wedding (my wedding guru) make me so happy.
It reminds me that after over a year of stressful planning, it will all end with dancing the night away. Of course, first we need to find a perfect photographer to document dancing, decide on whether we should have a band or dj or neither, find shoes that look great but can be danced in, etc.
And a special thanks to Dan Wilson for the engagement gift of a CD of Jewish wedding music. Whenever Nick and I are feeling stressed, we can practice dancing the hora to loosen up.
Good looks here. I like the casual and put-together men’s wear in this entire wedding party.
