Sea Glass

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

 

This forum has given me SO MUCH information for my wedding and has truly made it what I have always dreamed of.

 

I thought I would share something I am going to do. We have gotten sea glass which we are going to attach to card stock and have a poem on it. We are going to leave it on the seats at the reception with our tears of joy packets. We are going to ask for them back and have a vase in our house with the sea glass in it that will sit next to our sand ceremony frame.

 

We thought this was a nice way to include everyone and for everyone to put their best wishes into. We will also have the person marrying us say this in the opening when we thanks everyone for coming.

 

This is the poem:

 

Hold this magical sea glass in your hand and be reminded of the sandy beach, the salty air, the pounding waves, seashells and driftwood, and the blue sky and sea.

 

And be reminded of this special day of Kate & Mikeâ€s wedding.

 

Just like the turbulent tides and the calm seas, their marriage will have its ups and downs, and just like this sea glass, it will become even more beautiful, and it will endure the test of time.

Well we heard about people holding a glass heart but we couldnt find them anywhere. My mom suggested sea glass as its a little more beachy and we could get aqua (our main colour). We were going to order it online at a store who had the poem, but I was at Michaels on the weekend and they had a bag of it on clearence for only $5!! and they were aqua, clear and a light pink/purple...they also had other colours.

 

We just thought it would be a nice keepsake and again a nice way to make everyone feel involved in our ceremony

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
