River rocks sound fun!  I’d also suggest some centerpieces that have some kind of water in them, to keep with the feeling…maybe Save the Dates you and your Boyfriend or Best Friend rafting or kayaking in the river!  All kinds of great possibilities!!

This totally caught my eye because I think it’s such a great idea. You can use the river rocks as escort cards (for your guests names and table numbers) and you can have a beautiful color theme with blues and greens and yellows and browns (pretty browns, not yucky browns!). I love the idea of having water in your centerpieces. You don’t have to go over themey – but rather just have an idea of a relaxed calm river guiding you through the wedding (cheesey, I know, but I love it!)

You could maybe name your tables after rivers you’ve been on . . . or use pictures of the two of you on the river together on the numbers.  I love the river rocks ideas!

You could find a quotation about rivers and love that speaks to you and your Fiance and weave it through some of your paper products. I found this one with a quick google search: Love is the river of life in the world. – Henry Ward Beecher

I come from a family of river people. I’m getting married in my parents backyard, overlooking the river. A few years ago my sister made a slideshow of family photos for my parents. It had fun, upbeat songs the entire way through, until the end. It started showing pictures of my grandparents from just before they passed away. As this was going on, it had quotes from the movie A River Runs Through It.

“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.”

I do not know a single person who has not bawled their eyes out at the end of the slideshow.

I love all these things. I love A River Runs Through It. You should definitely try to do your enagement photos (or just have some photos taken) of you guys on a river, since it’s clearly important to you.

I also wanted to add that we are having our pics taken on the river. Our plan is to get some pics of us/the bridal party out in canoes (they are 26ft and dont tip/take on water!), as well as have some pics of us fishing.
