This young couple from Trenton, New Jersey was deeply in love. When their conversations turned to spending their lives together, they were in such agreement, the choice was clear. Gregory and Emily decided to marry last October.
Their similar backgrounds and their understanding of the region, made it a little easier to transition from single life into life as an engaged couple together and then transitioning even further into wedded bliss. They knew where the good Italian restaurants were and they knew where to find the best outdoor deck for a cocktail in the summer.
With love, anything is possible, isn't that how it goes? In this case, when an earnest couple like Gregory and Emily want to put their lives together and go forward for the rest of their lives, planning a wedding seems a simple event to detail. Right?
They considered a magician, releasing doves, having flying eagles on the arms of bird trainers, but in the end, they went for a fairly traditional wedding to makes things easier. Before too long, Gregory and Emily settled most of their wedding planning concerns. What decisions remained:
In some cultures, mostly out of Europe, brides and grooms would traditionally offer sugared nuts to their guests as a thank you for attending their wedding. There is a tradition for example in which the mesh baggie is tied with a ribbon and will contain a selection of five sugar almonds. In this tradition, each almond represents a blessing desired for the couple. There is health, wealth, happiness, longevity and the gift of children. For today's bride and groom, however, it is much more likely that a good wedding favor choice will be wedding sunglasses. Although many brides and grooms choose to buy cheap wedding sunglasses by the dozen, either simply a white sunglass or a black sunglass, more often than not, they will select personalized wedding sunglasses. A custom wedding sunglass wedding favor will include the personalization of the bride and groom's name on one side and the wedding date on another. We were so pleased when Gregory and Emily chose Shades of Fun! to provide their wedding sunglasses for their great event. We don't have almonds to offer, but we certainly offer them a long and loving marriage.
