Love hit Eugene like a ton of bricks. Bang, there was Anna and Eugene was a goner. In Love. Heart beating, breathing heavy. The whole package. It would be a few weeks until Anna caught up, but soon there was talk of marriage. This attractive young couple were most persuasively in love.
As it turns out, both had noticed each other and wondered about the other for weeks before they even spoke. Eugene and Anna were trying to determine if this attention was just physical attraction or whether there was a spark indeed that lit the fire they both felt inside of them when they saw each other.
The invitations began to arrive the very next day. There were drinks to be shared, congratulations to be celebrated. Many of their friends gathered at local bars and restaurants where people stopped by casually to express their joy at the news of their wedding engagement. At one smaller, more intimate family gathering, a friend of her aunt's quietly asked, will you be needing a wedding planner? That was the first time, Eugene and Anna thought of hiring outside a wedding planning professional.
Although their wedding planning was far more complicated than expected, within a reasonable timeframe, Eugene and Anna settled most of their wedding planning concerns. The remaining details included:
After the weeks of reading articles in the wedding magazines, looking at the experiences of others in the forums at The Knot and WeddingWire, both Eugene and Anna felt their wedding plans were well-managed. They loved the design of their wedding invitations. They chose a large parchment style embossed paper, mailed them out using that US stamp with the rose on it. There were quite a few unexpected bumps along the way. Their first choice for a wedding DJ was booked and then canceled with six weeks to go. That was a problem they could solve. The resort at which they planned their honeymoon was in touch by email to let them know they had been flooded and they're beachfront cabana would not be available. That was a problem that could be solved as well. What remained to be planned was the category of wedding favors. They saved this wedding planning category until the last to determine the type of money that was available in their wedding budget after all of the mandates were settled. Eugene and Anna were so excited to learn they had $1,200 remaining in the wedding budget. They decided to purchase customized movie theater tickets for each guest at the wedding. They contacted one of the major Movie House chains and delivered to them a list of the guests zip codes. That movie chain sent back gift certificates for their local movies for each of their guests home areas. Eugene and Anna used these envelopes with the movie coupons in them as place cards for the wedding reception tables. They made announcements during the wedding reception to make sure everyone there knew there was value in those envelopes. What a wonderful wedding surprise. The second and equally exciting wedding favor they chose was personalized custom wedding sunglasses. Their wedding was a themed wedding with the florist creating bouquets filled with varietal daisies. The bridesmaids wore dresses in various shades of yellow. The groomsmen wore yellow ties with daisy boutonnieres. So of course then it was a natural fit for their wedding sunglasses to choose our bright yellow sunglasses. Very often, we recommend bright colored inks to add extra energy to the personalized sunglasses, but in this case, we suggested black to achieve the feeling of the daisy as per their wedding theme. Thank you to Eugene and Anna for finding us online while performing their search for wedding sunglasses. We were so pleased to put a daisy logo and a heart to demonstrate your love on our classic yellow custom sunglasses.
