Today Troy and I had the pleasure of attending our final summer wedding for our friends, Dell and Andrea.
Andrea and Dell did such a great job of being creative and adding little details to make the day really special for their guests and each other. One of my favourite things they did was at the ceremony. They had a treasure box where they placed a gift certificate for their favourite restaurant and a love letter to each other. They sealed the box and agreed that if things ever got too tough in their marriage and one of them thought about giving up, they would open the treasure box, read the other person their love letter and spend the night at dinner with each other. I love creative little idea to keep the romance alive.
What have you seen at others weddings that you would like to steal for your big day?
Today was a realization that summer is leaving us. Waking up to sunny mornings and warm afternoons by the pool, are being replaced with cold mornings and afternoon tea to warm up. With that being said, I’m rather excited to pull out the leather boots and embrace the warm fall colours for another season.
What fall item are you most excited about wearing this season? Leave me a comment, I would love to hear from you!
