Today I got a really good question. It seemed good enough to pass along to you. Free association! In the comments!
So, I was talking to my friend’s mother, who is sort of like a second mom, about alternatives to flowers. And I realized that the WIC doesn’t have a lot of options for me–a bride who doesn’t want a bouquet, but who isn’t religious in a sense that she would carry a prayer book. So, I was wondering, if you were looking for an inspiring topic that hasn’t been covered, if that’s something worth talking about.
There’s a lot of pretty images of brides with parasols, but I wonder a bit what other ideas the wedding community might have for me? With warm greetings, Kaitlin
I have to say, I think it’s neat that Kaitlin brought up the idea of carrying a prayerbook, because it’s gone out of fashion. It’s obviously not right for many brides, but I like the idea of it – holding something that grounds you in your core values, instead of something that is, well, pretty.* I think there must be other non-religious ways to play on this idea – things to hold that ground you. Ideas?
So you’ve decided to elope somewhere near Washington, D.C. (or maybe Maryland? Virginia?). You figured the big wedding wasn’t for you, and all that planning sounded like more stress than it was worth. But you still kind of want to have… something. What do you do? You call Pop! Wed Co., the all-inclusive elopement brainchild of Steven (a humanist officiant) and Maggie (photographer and design genius). Steven and Maggie take all the work of a big-ish elopement (or a small-ish pop-up wedding) and do it for you. For $2,500, you just show up, have an awesome time, get married, and then have gorgeous photos to show for it afterward.…
