Oh yes, it was true that Robert and Ximena were deeply in love, marriage seemed a door to maturity. He was from Dublin, Ohio and she was from the city streets of Chicago. Would his love for crab cakes and her affection for deep dish pizza make for a blissful life together?
They both agreed that it was helpful as they headed into their lives together that they have common interests. People who are too different, no matter how much physical attraction there may be, and no matter how good natured the relationship is, at the end of the day, they felt that you really needed to have much in common to succeed in the long term of life.
Robert and Ximena were surprised and truly happy with the kind of excitement the announcement of their engagement brought to their family and friends. There were so many invitations to dinner, to cocktails, and just to small gatherings are friends where there were so many expressions of congratulations. They were on an emotional high as they entered into the world of wedding planning.

In the weeks leading up to the wedding, most all of the details were set. The couple was relaxed and happy, really looking forward to their great event.

What highlighted the conversation for Robert and Ximena was the idea of wedding sunglasses. A substantial part of their cocktail hour at the wedding would be outside on a patio at sunset. Wedding sunglasses, imprinted with a logo of some kind and perhaps the date of their wedding, would be a really nice touch. With their low cost and one-size-fits-all, Robert and Ximena believe that choosing wedding sunglasses was just the right wedding favor choice for them.
