It sure was physical attraction, but Colin also knew something else was going on when Colin saw Sophie at the Ohio State Fair last Summer. Sophie was something special -- a bit of an angel. Soft spoken and kind, Colin was blown away. They dated to his shock, and when he proposed marriage, she accepted.
Can two truly lovely, sweet and unselfish people really marry and enjoy a lifetime commitment together free of strife? Well, as Colin and Sophie began to plan their wedding and their lives together, it was certainly their most fervent hope that would be the case.
There were so many weddings planned for the following year. Just within their family alone, between the two families, there were seven weddings planned for next year. Colin and Sophie wondered how they were going to wedge their own wedding in and not be too disruptive. There were so many decisions to make, but even the wedding date began to bewilder them.
Their wedding planning timeline did seem to drag on for a long time. They did make progress, better than the average engaged couple. Within a few short weeks, Colin and Sophie had firm decisions completed on many elements. What decisions remained:
With the details of the wedding planning stage behind them, Colin and Sophie were able to relax and enjoy their time with friends. Although they lived nearby each other, they waited until marriage to move in and share the same space. This enabled them to discard household items they no longer needed when they combined their lives. During this phase of their wedding planning, they were able to relax and envision their wedding more clearly. The overarching details completed, their imagination was free to wander back to the fun galaxy they both enjoyed. Their thoughts turned to fun, amusing and useful wedding favors. There was a gentleman's magazine with article features about wedding favors as gifts. The article favored high tech devices such as personalized flash drives or USB ports with many differentially shaped adapter heads. While both Colin and Sophie wanted their wedding guests to find their wedding favor useful, a USB port or a flash drive seemed somewhat impersonal. A friend who married earlier that year suggested the idea of wedding sunglasses. She told them she had worked with our company, Shades of Fun. She described to them the ease with which she placed the order, the wide variety of typefaces they could choose to imprint along the side of their sunglasses. Their friend described how the wedding sunglasses lit up the dance floor and how the photographs were so much more energetic with people wearing the wedding sunglasses she ordered from our company. Colin and Sophie liked what they heard. The following day, they found our website featuring wedding sunglasses. They chose our classic shape sunglasses in multiple colors. But about twist in this particular order was they chose our bottle opener sunglasses as their wedding favor choice. These are sunglasses which certainly look normal enough, but the ends of each earpiece are shaped to open bottles. Never miss a bottle of beer again! Thank you to both Colin and Sophie as well as to their friend who made the suggestion to order wedding sunglasses from us as wedding favors.
