- Wedding: September 2010
Hi bees. My dad asked me to do something special to recognize a non family member at my wedding. She is a long time friend of my parents, whose children are my age so we went to school together. Since my mother passed, she’s been hosting my dad, siblings and I for holiday meals. Other than that, I don’t really see her. She checks in on my dad to see how he is and brings him dinner occasionally. I think she is a great, welcoming woman and I enjoy her company and appreciate the things she does for us. I’m not sure however, my wedding is the time to recognize her.
My dad thinks I should give her a corsage or the like, to distinguish her. I have no problem with that but I think it may confuse some people. We’ve hired servers and they and our wedding party know that if they need anything at all, they can ask a family member – who are all wearing corsages or bouts. I thought maybe instead, I would leave a note with some wine/champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in their hotel room (that my dad is paying for).
What do you bees think? Is the wine/strawberries too cheesy for the occasion? Is there something else you would do? A small gift or token to thank her and her husband?
