Music Keepsakes

1.  Kathy from St. Charles:  I plan to incorporate my Native American culture into my wedding to reflect my Indian heritage by adding lots of Native American artifacts into the décor and table decorations.  My dress will have symbolic colors of orange, blue, and black.  My mother gave me some beautiful Turquoise and Silver Jewelry.  I have brothers that will play the drums and flutes.  It should be a lot of fun.

2.  Sarah from St. Louis:  On our first date we went to The Hill and had an Italian meal, so we have decided to replicate that meal at our reception.

3.  Jenny from St. Louis:  Our First Dance will be totally unexpected and different.  We both love to dance and this will NOT be your traditional first dance.  Fun, Upbeat and Vibrant would be words to describe the music and the crazy dancing.

4.  Heather from Arnold:  We both love Halloween and we are requesting all our guests to dress in costume.  Our wedding is October 31st this year!

5.  Jen from Fenton:  We are having a very small wedding with only 10 couples so we are giving each couple a bottle of our favorite wine.

6.  Hillary from Chesterfield:  We are planning to have an outdoor wedding and during the wedding each guest will receive a special cocktail to give a toast right after we say our vows.

Tropical DrinkWeb

7.  Joanne from St. Louis:  Each guest will receive a personally signed “Thank You for coming to our wedding” at their dinner place at the reception.  This note is placed on the back of a 4X6 Engagement Photo.

8.  Kaitlyn from Florissant:  We plan to give each guest (couple) a tree to plant as a remembrance of our wedding.

9.  Kate from Granite City:  My ladies will all be dressed in different colors of the rainbow and the guys will wear coordinate bowties.    I feel that making the gals wear the same color just is so dated.  Plus they can pick the color that is best for their complexion.

10. Lindy S. from St. Louis:  I am a graphic artist so I am creating a monogram with our initials that we will use everywhere on all our décor.

Couple with Dog

11. Amanda from St. Louis:  We are having my future husband’s dog as his best man.   His dog saved his life several years ago and Jake is his very best friend.   We will also have a second “Best Man” – human.

12. Lori from Ballwin:  We are having the wedding at my parent’s farm and we will be filling the ceremony area with lots and lots of candles.  Plus each guest will have a candle.  Our ceremony will occur just as the sun has set.

13. Megan from Collinsville:  We are big bikers – so we are making our grand exit on his motorbike.  I found a second “reception” outfit where the skirt is very short, with pants underneath, to make my grand exit.

14. Jill from Union:  We both have children by a first marriage.  We will recognize the union of a new family by asking each one of them for their blessing for this marriage.

Musician Entertainment

15. Deshondra from Feguson:  We love music and love to sing.  We are designing our whole wedding around the music theme and plan to have friends play at our reception.  We are making a CD with some of our own “original” songs to give to our guests.
