It took many long conversations about the meaning of commitment, but in the end, Samuel and Alma made the big decision to marry last April. They both felt very good about their future together. These hard but loving explorations of marriage had drawn them closer together.
And though the primary activity of their day involves having fun, laughing, and enjoying themselves, the subject of marriage and the announcement of their wedding engagement, was something that they both took very seriously.
Planning a wedding. Potato chips, onion dip and a minister? How is that? Not really, though maybe. A wedding to plan can really get away from the loving couple lickety split.
Let's go gluten-free, meatless, totally vegan for our wedding, he wondered? They debated the pros and cons, and dismissed the notion. Samuel and Alma worked out all the wedding details which were appropriate for them. By April, they were very pleased with their ideas. What decisions remained:
In the past, wedding favors where a bag of candy covered nuts wrapped in a mesh baggie. The tradition of giving away sweetened nuts is based on some ancient tradition somewhere. And while this custom is still observed at many even contemporary weddings, the choices for wedding favors now extend far beyond tradition from several hundred years ago. As a great example, Samuel and Alma chose to customized wedding sunglasses as part of their wedding favor collection. Wedding sunglasses are an extremely low cost wedding favor that offers way more benefits than a bag of candied nuts. One of their most immediate benefits is that the wedding guests immediately start to ham it up, they act like they are rock star kind of cool. This, along with the alcohol, can start to loosen things up considerably at a wedding. We were so happy that ,Samuel and Alma chose Shades of Fun to deliver there personalized wedding sunglasses to them. We think the imprint we produced for them presented beautifully and we wish them a long and happy marriage.
