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?
We never stop growing up. But periods of transition like marriage and new jobs and cross-country moves can thrust us into maturity before we ever know what hit us. In September, we'll honor the new school year with an homage to the art of getting older.
