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?
Do you know that we remember more from our teenage years than any other part of our lives? Our brains are bending and growing, and we're creating ourselves. Now, as adults, we still create ourselves in the in-between. In between single and married, in between jobs, in between identities. Next month, join us in becoming.
