Without doubt, if you were around this happy couple, Henry and AmÃ©lie were deeply in love. Marriage? Ouch, that's a big leap. They discussed it together for weeks and weeks. Henry even went back home to Detroit and bounced the idea around with his university friends.
In spite of what seemed like a brief period of dating, this young and fun loving couple felt they had known each other for a very long time. Henry and AmÃ©lie also felt extremely fortunate because they knew they could have waited for much longer in their lives before they had found the one who they felt would complete them. When they entered into the decision to marry, they were filled with gratitude.
Henry and AmÃ©lie were fortunate enough to have all four parents in their lives and healthy with robust bank accounts. There was no shortage of money available to them to assist them with planning their wedding. Still, they wondered what type of wedding they really wanted.
They tried to keep things organized and were successful in that. By Fall, Henry and AmÃ©lie settled most of their wedding planning concerns. What particulars remained:
By the time they turned their attention to planning and shopping for wedding favors, Henry and AmÃ©lie were pretty exhausted. They believed they coordinated a wonderful wedding for just about one month away. The venue was all set, the church was ready. They hired decorators for the floral arrangements as well as for the decor of the church service. And all of that time, Henry and AmÃ©lie never suffered through an argument. They felt that their experience planning the wedding was a good indication that they would have and wonderful, easygoing life together. As they examined wedding favors, they really focused on the types of products their guests would like and would have a benefit to them. They did not think that an etched wine glass with their wedding date on it was a good idea for their guests or a good use of money. They settled on providing their guests with two individualized wedding favors. The first was scratch off lottery tickets. They lived in a state where the lottery system was really energetic with lots of choices on how to play the lottery. They invested $400 in purchasing an assortment of lottery tickets for their guests. They placed them in envelopes and put their names on each one of them. The lottery tickets and their inscribed envelopes also served as placeholders at the dinner table for the reception. For their second wedding favor they chose personalized wedding sunglasses. Both attended weddings in the past where sunglasses were distributed. Instead of the cheap sunglasses by the dozen, they chose instead to customize their wedding sunglasses. They found our company, Shades of Fun, online doing a wedding search. They also found us with our wonderful reviews on the website known as The Knot. They chose our mirrored sunglasses. We created a selection of assorted color frames with a silver mirror lens sunglass. We suggested they use a hot pink ink on each of the sides of their sunglasses. This created an instant impact of excitement and energy. That translated into lots of fun photos, lots of comedy. People acting like hams once wearing the sunglasses. That kicked off the kind of fun and enthusiasm you want at your wedding. Thank you to Henry and AmÃ©lie for choosing Shades of Fun to produce your silkscreened wedding sunglasses. Best wishes for a beautiful life together in your marriage.
