We did ask the groom what they wanted or needed.He referred us to the Mrs.to be.
It was a huge expensive wedding.Not like my own was.We figured if we can't pay for it on our own it's unnecessary.Trust me it wasn't even missed.
We wrote them a sizeable check.*cough*
Bought them a beautiful stoneware dinner set with matching serving trays.
Oldest son was a groom.Designated river.Good sport
Youngest was the second photographer.Good sport
The personal topper from me was something she hadn't thought of.But I did.It was used front and center during the ceremony.
A Silver wedding candle holder that holds 1 pillar and 2 tapers.
She can display her wedding candles with pics in style.When it's time to tuck it away I know she will keep it for her kids wedding someday.Both sides of parents were involved in the lighting of the tapers.A few people came up to me afterwards to tell me how pretty that holder was.It's just what the ceremony needed.
I didn't have the time to ask them if it was ok to show their pic.
I'll just put a small one in of them lighting the candles.
