Even if you had never met them before, seeing Tod and Renna together would give anyone the idea this was an exuberant couple, full of love for life and each other. Toby was from the corn farming country of Nebraska, Renna was from the gentle suburbs of Boston.
Both spiritually and physically, their focus became stuck on just hearing one note: the note of happiness and love. Renna and Tod entered a state of comfort and peace only when they were together.
Almost instantly, friends and family began to invite the engaged couple over for dinner, for cocktails, for large and small gatherings where there were engagement presents handed to them, congratulations slapped upon their backs.Tod and Renna felt so much love that went around. Their entire world was truly happy and excited for them. Almost all of them had questions about the planning of the wedding, and there were few answers at this early stage of event planning.
They got to work fairly quickly. The bridal magazines and websites like The Knot helped. By July, Tod and Renna settled most of their wedding planning concerns. There were still some critical details left to be determined:
After the weeks of reading articles in the wedding magazines, looking at the experiences of others in the forums at The Knot and WeddingWire, both Tod and Renna felt their wedding plans were well-managed. They loved the design of their wedding invitations. They chose a large parchment style embossed paper, mailed them out using that US stamp with the rose on it. There were quite a few unexpected bumps along the way. Their first choice for a wedding DJ was booked and then canceled with six weeks to go. That was a problem they could solve. The resort at which they planned their honeymoon was in touch by email to let them know they had been flooded and they're beachfront cabana would not be available. That was a problem that could be solved as well. What remained to be planned was the category of wedding favors. They saved this wedding planning category until the last to determine the type of money that was available in their wedding budget after all of the mandates were settled. Tod and Renna were so excited to learn they had $1,200 remaining in the wedding budget. They decided to purchase customized movie theater tickets for each guest at the wedding. They contacted one of the major Movie House chains and delivered to them a list of the guests zip codes. That movie chain sent back gift certificates for their local movies for each of their guests home areas. Tod and Renna used these envelopes with the movie coupons in them as place cards for the wedding reception tables. They made announcements during the wedding reception to make sure everyone there knew there was value in those envelopes. What a wonderful wedding surprise. The second and equally exciting wedding favor they chose was personalized custom wedding sunglasses. Their wedding was a themed wedding with the florist creating bouquets filled with varietal daisies. The bridesmaids wore dresses in various shades of yellow. The groomsmen wore yellow ties with daisy boutonnieres. So of course then it was a natural fit for their wedding sunglasses to choose our bright yellow sunglasses. Very often, we recommend bright colored inks to add extra energy to the personalized sunglasses, but in this case, we suggested black to achieve the feeling of the daisy as per their wedding theme. Thank you to Tod and Renna for finding us online while performing their search for wedding sunglasses. We were so pleased to put a daisy logo and a heart to demonstrate your love on our classic yellow custom sunglasses.
