- Wedding: April 2013
My husband and I got married 25 years ago. We were married in shorts with no one around except the person performing the marriage. We have always wanted to do this but seemed like life came along and we never did it.
We are now older and since we never had a wedding decide to have an anniversary party. We decided on a luau, with Polynesian dancer, fire dancer and luau dinner. After reserving and making plans my husband said he wanted a renewal, and I agreed.
These are the details, what do you think?
Renewal: White, simple Hawaiian dress for me, my husband is wearing matching white shirt with long pants.
Our children are wearing matching hawaiian dresses or shirt with the guys wearing shorts. Children ages are 32,28,22,16 along with two spouses.
My two grandchildren are walking down the isle before me, my two daughters will stand next to me and my two sons next to my husband.
My son, 32 wants to walk me down the isle???
Our Pastor is performing the ceremony along with our personal vows.
Luau: Luau buffet
No sign in book, we had a 4’ surfboard painted in our colors for people to sign.
We are having a candy buffet with salt water taffy, chocolate sea shells and other chocolates (I do candy buffets for weddings every weekend… its my business).
Wedding cake with a the knife from my son’s wedding and server from my daughters wedding. They don’t really match the theme but has sentimental meaning.
My husband is standing up thanking everyone and speaking about each of the children.
Do who have toast, or have someone toast??
We are having Polynesian dancers… full Hawaiian show.
We are doing a slide show during dessert time, wedding cake and coffee.
We are not: Having first dance
No dancing at all
No garter… don’t like it even for first weddings
No bouquet toss
Should the children and us enter the reception area together.. kinda like a grand entrance but not as formal??
We did not put no gifts on the invitation, should we have done that? I didn’t think about it but I am having a place for cards since this is our 25th anniversary.
