One thing I have a hard time accepting is the presence of people at wedding reception that neither the bride nor the groom have any idea who they are. That is exactly what it was like at my sister’s wedding recently. She must have come up to me four or five times inquiring if I knew who a certain individual was. I am not saying they are wedding crashers. I am saying that certain invited guests take it upon themselves to add these people to their invitation reply without using any discretion whatsoever. Now my sister will have to wait to collect her wedding guest book before she uncovers their identities. I always thought it was an exaggeration, but I guess it’s true when they say nothing is sacred anymore.
Johnny is only twelve years old, but he wanted to be involved in his sister’s wedding. He practically begged her for something to do to help her out. She broke down and gave him some cash and told him to buy a few things for the reception. He had his list with him. He put a basket on his bike and rode off. When he returned to the reception hall where everything was being set up, he emptied the contents of his basket on a table. Everyone looked perplexed when they saw the boxes of disposable diapers. They thought my daughter was expecting. She had to explain that he was supposed to get disposable wedding cameras, not disposable diapers. I most certainly hope everyone believed her.
I always enjoy attending weddings. There are actually times that I slip into my local chapel just to observe the exchanging of vows or whatever is going on at the time. Why shouldn’t I? After all, I can’t imagine a more comfortable and serene atmosphere than be relaxed in God’s house and witnessing people receiving God’s blessing. I really get a charge out of seeing people of different races and from different countries getting married. I don’t always know what to expect. I saw this wonderful unity candle ceremony just a few days ago that brought tears to my eyes. Besides, what is better than being a part of two people promising love to each other? I don’t think there is a much better experience to take part in.
Often times, the best wedding photos are taken by the guests. The bride and groom make it easy for their guests to capture all those special moments by placing a few disposable wedding cameras on each of the reception tables. Be sure to place instructions on how to use them or table signs with the wedding cameras to encourage guests to capture all those hopefully interesting if not weird and funny moments throughout the reception. At the end of the day, you can collect the cameras and have a blast flipping through all the fun shots once the film is developed. Weddingstar’s disposable wedding cameras are available in various themes and come in quite a variety of colors and really give a spark to the evening. Go ahead and have a ball.

My wife and I got married in Punta Cana. We had a beach wedding with outside cocktail hour and reception. Even though there were only a total of 20 guests, there were plenty of the personalized napkins for the whole day and then some. The rest we brought home to use for 1st anniversary party. The color we chose was to the “T” and the beautiful and artistic engraving in foil was wonderful when reflecting in the sun. They were thick and very well made.I was worried about it being humid, but the drinks did not soak right through, which was awesome. Thank you so much! I love Weddingstar.
Bottom Line is, I would recommend them to a friend. I got many wedding related items from them.
Thirty-seven and counting, that’s the number of wedding receptions I have been to. In all the thirty-seven, I could count on one hand the variety, or lack of variety, of favors. I began to think there were no such thing as unique wedding favors. I just received an invitation to number thirty-eight. I kept my fingers crossed and hoped for the best. I prayed there would be no almonds and no ashtrays (do people still smoke?). When I arrived I noticed, Lo and behold, there were these strange looking, but beautiful, bags all set up at a long narrow table. Another guest told me that they were the wedding favors. Finally I actually was curious as to what they could be. They certainly appeared to be different, very different. Mind you, not many people share my interest that I have in these things, but as they say “To each his own.” I thought to myself, the bags alone seemed better than any favor I have been given. I thought whatever was inside those bags was almost inconsequential. Tune in next time and I’ll let you know what it was.
My uncle Slim has been a loyal employee of the United States Postal System since as long as I can remember. I always had a little more interest than most when it came to his job and what different experience might have come up during his career. My mom says he is about to retire and he’ll really miss the place. Upon my monthly grilling of him to attempt to extract some stories, he would tell me that mail is personal and it was against the law to discuss anyone’s mail, but. This but he was talking about, intrigued me. I went to see him after his retirement party and he said, “Okay this one time, I’ll let you in on something.” It was the fact that he had a cache of wedding invitations that he found under a cabinet at the post office that were 42 years old. He made numerous attempts to locate the recipients to no avail.
Our family has been blessed to have a particularly extensive life span. My grandfather and grandmother have just celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary. All of the offspring decided to through a big gala in their honor. We planned an entire day of celebration as if it were their original wedding day. I can’t tell you how pleased they were. We had everything from a wedding cake to the favors actually being placed in these wonderfully artistic wedding favor boxes. The boxes were the work of my 87 year old aunt who must have spent at least 200 hours making them. They were so beautiful that no one cared what was inside them. However, the favors were of equal beauty. They were framed photos of their original wedding all those years ago.
