But here comes Tip#1 for the kick off!
A Tip for Wedding Planners
I attended a wedding recently. As are most weddings, the whole thing was beautiful. The bride and groom were into conservation and sharing their love for nature. What I was most impressed with was one single gift at each place setting at the dinner tables. These little gifts were not for the bride and groom but for the attendees – the family and friends who came to wish the couple well. You would call the gift at each place setting a “wedding favor” I guess.
Each of us received a tiny little tree sapling wrapped to carry home with instructions on how and where to plant! And there was a sentiment attached to each that said, “When you plant this tiny tree, we hope you will see it grow and flourish, just as you watch Chris and Bonnie begin their lives together and look to the future.”
I thought this was priceless for a wedding “guest gift” or for any other occasion that calls for sweet memories. A good florist or nursery should be able to help with the details. My little tree sapling is planted now and each time I look at its progress I think of Chris and Bonnie, their wedding, and all our wishes for their continuing growth and happiness.
