Love hit Francisco like a ton of bricks. Bang, there was Rachel and Francisco was a goner. In Love. Heart beating, breathing heavy. The whole package.It would be a few weeks until Rachel caught up, but soon there was talk of marriage. This attractive young couple were most persuasively in love.
Although by many of their friends' standards, Francisco and Rachel became engaged to marry on a relatively fast timeline, this optimistic and attractive couple only saw the positives. Both of them felt they knew it was time to move forward. Unbelievable to both of them, they instantly wanted to start a family.
Francisco and Rachel were at the age when so many of their friends and younger family members had become engaged themselves. In one year alone, they had attended 12 weddings between them. So it was with some anticipation and caution that they decided to enter into planning their wedding by themselves. Or should they hire a wedding planner? This question really took up a lot of their time.
Was the process of planning a wedding more complex than expected, sure. But they tackled their first big task together and worked well. Francisco and Rachel settled most of their wedding planning concerns. By the time of a family Baptism, all was set except:
With the details of the wedding planning stage behind them, Francisco and Rachel 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 Francisco and Rachel 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. Francisco and Rachel 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 Francisco and Rachel as well as to their friend who made the suggestion to order wedding sunglasses from us as wedding favors.
