    So, FI works in the financial industry. He has all of these lucite "tombstones" from deals that he's worked on, etc.

    So, I was thinking I'd put something similar together to commemorate our "merger". He could keep it on his desk at work without being all mushy. I have found a company that will do a single order - which got me very excited. It would probably say something along the lines of "...pleased to announce the merger of [us] on [wedding date], etc..." with our palm tree logo in the back.

    It would look something like this:

    So, what do you think? Cute? Stupid?

        I think it's a sweet idea, very personal. I love Alyssa's idea of copying your vows or a love poem. Maybe even lyrics from your song!

        I think its cute and I agree having something personal would be nice, like your vows or a song or maybe a letter you could write to him.
        Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

          Very cool idea, unique and personal cuz it fits him and his career. I agree the vows would be cool. or if you have a saying between you two. Great idea!

            I think it's a great idea. It's personal to the two of you & that is better than a "cookie cutter" idea. I say "do it!"

                Totally cute! It's perfect for him. If I was going to do something like that, it would have to be some type of contract that looked like a baseball player signing with a new team. I think I am marrying the fever pitch guy.
