Great thread!

We’re getting married in Sweden, with both Canadian and Swedish guests so we’re bringing Canadian ice-wine as our favour. We’re also arranging tours of the area, will rent a baking cottage to bake traditional bread, rock climb and go horseback riding. Then we’re having a bunch of pre BBQs and fishing trips – so looking forward to it!

@cbgg: Thanks! It’s a small wedding though, so it’s all doable. What are you planning?

  • Wedding: April 2013

We’re doing a Destination Wedding in Florida (a trip for all of us, though not as exotic or original as we’d wanted… ah, compromise!!!) in April. Here are a few things we’re doing:

1. A killer welcome party to kick things off

2. A low country boil for our Rehearsal Dinner followed by a hen/buck outing

3. Steel drums at the ceremony playing a mix of traditional wedding songs & some reworked favorites (everything sounds cooler on steel drums, lol!)

4. Providing sitters for parents during all events (worth every penny!)

5. Welcome bags with local treats, a few snacks, and a bottle of wine

6. A DIY photo booth at the beach house 

7. A father-daughter choreographed dance (my dad is a goober and we have a lot of fun doing silly stuff.)

8. A “Day After” brunch the next morning before everyone heads out of town

9. Way more cake & alcohol than a group of this size could possibly need

10. Providing accomodations to Bridal Party – Bridesmaid or Best Man with me at beach house, Groomsmen at nearby resort with Fiance (Our biggest expense & we had help from FI’s family for this, but we are able and thought it would make the trip less burdensome on our Bridal Party members.)

11. At home receptions – We’re having one in each of our hometowns for people who couldn’t make it & coworkers, etc. who didn’t make the guest list

I don’t know if any of that is super personal, but those are just a few things we’re planning to do as a thank you.
