- Wedding: October 2015 - Marquee - Private Property
Over the past few years (decade), my now-FI has given me love notes as little adorable reminders of how much he loves me. They always say something very small and perfect, like “we still have forever to come”, or “you’re my wonderwall”, just something little. Then he seals them with a wax ‘T’ for his name and leaves them somewhere for me to find like the glovebox in my car, on our bed when I get home from work or in my handbag.
I have literally got close to 40 of these letters, all different but all on the same cardstock, sprayed with his cologne and sealed with a ‘T’.
They’ve been such a special part of our courtship, and I want to know how I can incorporate them into the decor at our ceremony or reception somehow. There’s nothing about this anywhere! I guess other people don’t get 50 love letters haha.
Thank you for your help in advance! xx

MissTravelbug: That is very sweet! I assume he is ok with this idea? Maybe you could do photos of the actual notes and place in little frames scattered around the tables at the reception? or just write the sayings if you don’t want to show the actual notes (or if they might be hard to read).
Are you doing any sort of photo guest book? Could incorporate them there.

You could use them in the double sided Tolsby frames from Ikea for table names. You might need to incorporate a number overlay to make it easier for your guests to find their table.

As a guest, I’d be a little disturbed if the groom’s love letters to the bride were displayed at the tables or such. It’s too personal. No matter how close we are, I don’t want to be that close to your romance. It’s awkward, and almost creepy. Like reading your diary, just not on purpose. Maybe make reference to the letters briefly in a toast/speech, but no more.
