Wedding Inspiration: Bilbo Baggins’ Birthday by Meg Keene Jamie* just pointed out to me that Bilbo Baggins’ eleventy-first birthday at the beginning of Lord Of The Rings is probably the most perfect wedding inspiration ever. Agreed.* Drinking, singing, lanterns in trees, cake practically on fire? Check! Though I don’t plan on physically disappearing at the end of my wedding… exactly. But I’m sure not going to the afterparty. *Jamie isn’t blogging about weddings anymore, so I kind of figured I could run with this. ** Though admittedly, since I grew up in a house where we gave ‘hobbit presents’ to all our guests on our own birthdays (hobbits give other people presents on their birthdays) I might be a little bit biased.
