Can’t tell you…all my wedding stuff is top secret!! Tongue Out

I don’t really think we’re doing anything TOO unique. We are doing a wishing tree instead of a guest book because my fiance fell in love with the idea

We are doing some card & board games on cocktail tables because some of our guests don’t enjoy dancing or drinking, but we still want them to be entertained.

I think we are going to do beer brewed specially for us as a favor (also bottled soda for the non-drinkers & kids).

We are not going to have a head table or sweetheart table, we are going to sit with our guests.

We’re not doing a cake because we don’t like cake.

We’re not particularly creative! Those are the closest things to “unique” I’ve got!

Some of my ideas are unique to my friends, but not unique to weddings in New Orleans.

I’m excited, because following our second line parade, we’re going to have an after party on Bourbon Street where people can throw beads.

We’re have a fusion wedding – Indian and Filipino so that makes it unique as it is in our circle of friends.

I do’nt think that there is anything that is too terribly unique about our wedding. The only things I can come up with are

-we are getting married at a summer camp (in “awwww” territory, it’s the same camp mypartner worked at as a counselor fresh out of high school for like 5 years, and now volunteers one week a summer as a nurse. Last summer our older dog and I stayed with him and helped out). It’s a huge piece of property and they are letting us do whatever we want. 

-our dogs are in the ceremony. Not horribly unique, but I don’t see it often around where we are.

-our wedding party includes people of all abilities. If my maid of honor is well on that day, she may only need to use a cane (will be decorated), but otherwise she may need her crutches. I may also need my cane. 

-my mommy is our offciciant 🙂 I’ve seen lots of people have their dad or uncle, but never a mom. I had wanted her to walk me down the aisle, but that was drama – and then it hit me (my mom is a reverend! she does tons of weddings!). 

-after reading WB, I’ve realized teh dessert buffet and s’mores at night are not very unique! At least we’ll be making the marshmellows ourselves (include a Bailey’s flavor – said maid of honor is sooo excited about that!! haha)

@MsLobizon:  I feel like after seeing all the posts on WB NOTHING is unique lol. There are a lot of things that I’ve never seen done at a wedding, but WB makes them seem commonplace. I think it gives us a warped perception of things Tongue Out

We had a sugaring off wedding at a cabane a sucre (sugar shack, where they make maple syrup) in Quebec.

During our “cocktail hour” we served hot chocolate, apple cider, s’mores and la tire sur la neige (maple taffy on snow)

All of the flowers at our wedding were made of paper.

We served a pretty unconventional wedding meal… it was the traditional sugaring off feast which was all comfort foods (not a vegetable in sight lol) and included (but wasn’t limited to) mashed potatoes, tourtiere (meat pie), sausages, canadian bacon and pancakes with maple syrup. Also the meal was served family style and all you can eat.

We didn’t have a wedding cake, instead we cut a tarte au sucre (maple sugar pie).

I think there was a lot of unique things about our wedding… I loved it! 🙂

I’m pretty confident in saying that were will be aspects of my wedding that fall into the category of unique. They’re top secret for now, but maybe one day I’ll share. 

Also, imagine taking a traditional New Orleans family and transplanting them in Missouri. No one has any idea what to do with my in-laws. 

One thing that I will share is that when we were still planning on getting married in NOLA, we had decided to have our reception outside of the alligator pit at the Audubon Society, but decided that drunk wedding guests and alligators really didn’t mix.

We’re having a photobooth and that’s pretty unique in our circle of friends and family. I’m doing ALOT of DIY which is not common either.
