I’m wondering if any of you creative bees out there are paying tribute to your first date in any way (venue? details?) on your wedding day. I just read a story about a couple that got married at Starbucks because that’s where they had their first date – and I thought it was kind of cute.
Personally, our first date was a trip to Cold Stone Creamery…and the next day he showed up at my parent’s house (we were still in high school) with a pint of the same flavor I had gotten the night before! It’s still is our go-to place for special celebrations, like when he got a promotion at work or when I found out I got into law school. 🙂
I don’t think we’re going to incorporate Cold Stone into our wedding in any way, but I’d love to hear if any of you are paying tribute to your first date on your wedding day. Maybe I’ll change my mind and find a way to work in the ice cream.

Ours was at a fetish party, so I don’t think it would be terribly appropriate. It would be VERY funny, though!

We did! Our first date was at a wine tasting. We got married at the same winery the wine tasting was at 🙂

This is going to sound totally insane, but yes sort of in an informal way. Our first date was to Whataburger. Yay being broke! So, since we aren’t having a meal at our reception and are leaving two days later for a very expensive honeymoon, we decided instead of some fancy resturant for after the wedding, we are going to Whataburger. Full wedding outfit and all. 🙂

No or we’d be getting married at Earls restaurant. Lol.
Cute about the Sbux wedding though!

Good idea! Our first date was to a baseball game, so I could definitely see incorporating that into a small detail somehow. Like having the guests throw baseballs at us as we run to the limo? 😉 No but really, we could incorporate that in a ton of ways… fun idea!

I think that would be totally cute – I’m pretty sure COldstone does cater, it could be a very cute and awesome dessert!

@SpecialSundae: hahahahh OMG, I love this.
Our whole wedding will have touches of the reason we met: Radiohead! From the music to quotes to table numbers (maybe) to the custom cuff links he’ll wear to the string quartet cover as I walk down the aisle… Radiohead will be there with us.
We’re inviting them to the wedding, too. But yeah… uhh they probably won’t come.
We’re also going to see them in Florence for part of our honeymoon!
Radiohead radiohead radiohead… sheesh.

I don’t think there would have been a feasible way to do so without being odd. We saw a movie we both hated (so bad, so so SO bad), threw tortillas off a bridge (town traidtion), and Darling Husband had custard because he forgot I get really sick from dairy products.
If you both like coldstone, I think have icecream as part of your dessert (with the cake?) would be cute.

hehe… would not be appropriate

@chasesgirl: That’s so unique!
@AnneTossy: I think it’s awesome that you guys are getting married at a winery, especially if that’s where your first date was. I love wine myself, but my Fiance is more of a beer kind of guy. I somehow convinced him to do a wine box ceremony, though. 🙂
@All In: I’m sure there’s some way you could incorporate in baseball! Maybe not having them thrown at you, haha. But if you guys are really into baseball, maybe your cake topper? Or something else small like that.
@SpecialSundae: That’s hilarious!
As for our own wedding and Cold Stone, I really like the idea of an ice cream bar but it’s just not really financially doable for us. I’m thinking Fiance and I will have to make a trip there the Sunday after to celebrate, though.

Haha, no but that’s probably because we just went to the mall and saw Superbad then ate food court Chinese.

@msbadger7: You could at least do an ice cream groom’s cake! 🙂

We kind of are. We are going for our marriage license on the 15th anniversary of our first date. Also, ironically the building where we have to go for the marriage license is where we saw each other again. We were high school sweethearts, and we had seen each other sporadically over the years, but when we saw each other at the courthouse is when we became a couple again. Which explains why it took 15 years to get a license.

@ArmyWife12: That is super adorable! My Fiance and I are high school sweethearts who reunited after a few years apart as well. And how sweet that you get to go back to the place where you reunited to get your marriage license. 🙂
