- Wedding: September 2012
for honoring the parents, my officiant suggested doing the thing where we give roses to our moms at some point as a thank you. i like the idea behind it but of course i want to change it up.. haha. she had an idea that a previous bride did – she took little strips of paper and wrote little messages of thanks and love and appreciation on them, and folded them into little origami things (i dont know what she did, but id maybe do the cranes or the cute little stars) and fill a mason jar with them. you then give the jar to them at teh ceremony and they are to open the jar every year on this day and read a note to remember how much we love and care for them. i like this idea cause it wont die like a rose and be with them longer! thoughts?
