A friend of mine just recently got engaged and has asked me to post some of the details from my wedding. I had much the same wedding as any other girl, but I did add some creative touches to make the day unique. Some of these touches are still remembered by guests and mentioned regularly even though our wedding was over four years ago in July of 2007.
Something New: My dress, veil, and shoes were my something new. The unique aspect was the added touch I did with my shoes. I asked each of my bridesmaids to sign the bottom and write a little message. Each of them had walked with me on my journey through life and through the craziness of planning of wedding, so it was fitting to have them walk "with me" down the aisle. Although nobody saw this aspect, I did mention it in the program which informed guests of many of the "special touches" or details I added to our wedding day.
For the sake of length, I think I will break up the posts about our wedding details into three posts. Stay tuned for "I Do...Added Touches" and "Wedding Reception: A Personal Touch". Also...please comment on this post to add your thoughts or ideas for brides!
