Even though Neil and Melonie were deeply in love, marriage seemed a big step. Both were from eastern Maryland and enjoyed many common regional experiences. But, they wondered if crab cakes could really bind a marriage?
Their age was right, the level of career achievements in both of their work lives was well-adjusted, they decided to leave their immaturity in the past and move forward into a mature married life without completely losing their childlike love for fun and laughter.
With more than modest bank accounts, the couple was in the enviable position of having to choose the type of wedding they would like. Both assumed the job of planning their wedding would be a straightforward one. They did not sweat it. Neil and Melonie felt their economic position would enable them to craft whatever kind of wedding they felt was appropriate for them.
Within a few weeks, Neil and Melonie settled most of their wedding planning concerns. What decisions remained:
The choice of wedding favors facing Neil and Melonie was an exhaustive array of products. There were inexpensive items like lollipops to choose. If someone was going to use lollipops as wedding favors, you had many choices. You could choose candy lollipops, you could choose chocolate-covered lollipops, you could choose small lollipops, you could choose big lollipops. There was the idea of a photo booth, where the photographs themselves would serve as the souvenir memento of the wedding. Instead, Neil and Melonie chose wedding sunglasses. Not just any old cheap sunglasses by the dozen kind of white or black sunglasses. They chose really really nice high shine good quality wedding sunglasses. We were delighted that they chose our company, Shades of Fun, to provide them with their custom wedding sunglasses. We directed them to be a little more creative and they went with yellow ink on highly polished black frames. The yellow ink against the black frame really stands out with a tremendous logo on their wedding sunglass project. From all of us at Shades of Fun!, best wishes to Neil and Melonie for a long and happy marriage filled with whatever you desire.
