    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 & Mike’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.
    Today I marry my bestfriend, the one I laugh with, the one I love.

        I like that. It seems very sentimental. I have never heard of it. Where do you get it?

          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
