Oh, I’ll play!! : )

We took all 30 guests and wedding party to fly kites before the ceremony and it was so much fun! And added something extra to the usual ceremony/reception schedule. It was something we had done on one of our previous trips to our destination wedding location, so it was something that had special meaning for us. It also gave us a bit of theme for the wedding.

Im exacly like you, Im planning a out of the box wedding. My dress would be short red and black. I read about making an award ceremony in the wedding to incorporate the people at the wedding, giving awards for the couple who had last longer together, for the must loving couple, for the must estrange couple… stuff like that. I also read somewhere that instead of of a guest signing book to have small cards where every guest can write and advice for the newlywed… thats all I have, Im a little bit lost with this wedding thing, I posted somenthing asking for help but nobody had answer yet.   πŸ™

All my friends at the wedding who aren’t in the wedding party will be wearing traditional nigerian clothes (aso-ebi). It’ll be really fun seeing my non-african friends in aso-ebi!

We have opted for the suprise wedding dance BUT we are throwing a twist in. My Groom has passed on the whole dancing idea so it will only be the rest of us so I am playing with the idea of having just me and the girls dance to a song FOR him instead of with him. As of right now we will be dancing to the dirty dancing ‘ive had the time of my life’ song and my (female) wedding party will perform the guy parts of the song as I perform the girl parts of the song to my groom! When it gets to the end of the song where Patrick Swayze lifts ‘Baby’ in the movie in the air my Groom will be standing there in position for the lift as I approach him and at last minute turn to the guests and smile and shake my head NO and continue the dance! I can’t wait to start practicing!!!

I think having 4 seperate ceremonies is pretty unique!!! Each one will be traditional in it’s own way, but I don’t think there are many people in this world who have had a Canadian embassy + Orthodox church + traditional Korean + mainstream Canadian wedding.

Oh where to begin?! I don’t think there’s such a thing as a cookie cutter wedding anymore, everyone strives so hard to make their wedding their own unique representation of themselves nowadays that there’s no mold to follow.

I’ll be wearing a cocktail length party dress. In ivory, sure but still a party dress (that I totally plan on re-wearing!). We’ll have no dancing, we’re getting married on a Sunday, in the morning with an afternoon reception, we won’t have a sit-down dinner but will have passed canapés, we’re hiring out 2 rooms and a terrace at our gastropub venue so I’m anticipating quite a lot of mingling with random strangers in some of the non-hired rooms, our ceremony will be immediate family only so our friends and the rest of our families will only see us at the reception – and we probably won’t make an entrance because we may go there for lunch before the reception starts! πŸ™‚ It’s just one big party as far as I’m concerned.

There are several really traditional elements about our wedding (in a church, long white dress, etc) but some unique things we’re doing is that instead of renting our glassware for the wine & cheese reception, my family and I have spent the last year purchasing unique wine glasses from thrift stores, garage sales, and antique stores. We have all different colors, types of glass, patterns and sizes! I wanted it to give the event a relaxed, whimsical garden party feel and I think it’s really going to make a difference. Afterwards, I’m going to break some of the glass (we’ve got 200 glasses) and use it to make mosaic gifts for family and friends over the next few years.

Ah, well my things are nontraditional for St. Louis but i’ll chime in. We had short BM dresses and my mom made them. That was a big shocker. NOBODY does that here! Also we got married outdoors at a plantation house–NOBODY i know has done that. It’s all church, all long dresses, all religious, all the way. We had signature cocktails (no biggee in most places) but everybdoy was blown away by my “creativity” which i thought was funny.

Well…I don’t know how unique this is, but FI wants to hire a cigar roller for the reception and he wants the GM to wear fedoras.  Also, in tribute to MJ, he and BM want to perform a choreographed Thriller/Bad dance.  Hahaha….I’m not so sure about the MJ dance (not because it won’t be cool, but because I think they’ll chicken out!)
