The Wedding Comic on Pop Candy

Thursday, August 27, 2009

I guest blogged over on Pop Candy while our beloved matriarch takes a vacation. Go check it!

I had four jobs for our June 6 wedding: 1) Book a school bus to take guests from the hotel to the wedding site; 2) Pick out the booze; 3) Take the lead on all of the paper craft items (save the dates, invitations, etc); and 4) Purchase party favors.

The first two tasks were easy. The third was quick and fun -- I designed all of the mailings and the autograph book, got Robin to approve them, and sent them out to printers I've worked with in the past.

The fourth task, however ... what does one give for a favor? No offense, but weddings where the guests go home with a Hummel figurine knock-off filled with candy or a wine stopper etched with the bride and grooms names are, you know, a bit tired. That type of favor wasn't fitting for a wedding that had as its website. There was only one favor for such a wedding, and that was a commemorative wedding comic.

Read the rest here.
