AW: we have a theme!!!!!

I have been kind of struggling with making our wedding "us"...I didn't know what I could do to make it reflect our relationship and us as a couple. Well, with a little bit of help from FI, we've got it! I knew that I wanted us to each pick a signature cocktail, but we were kind of stumped on that, too. Then, I got this text from him earlier today...

He suggested naming our signature drinks after drinks that we've had in special places together. Then, my mind started racing. We are definitley a couple that likes to travel...offhand, in the two years we've been together, we've taken a cross-country road trip from Maryland to Arizona, gone to London, Paris, Key West, Sarasota, New York City, Lake Tahoe, and San Diego, plus lots of little day trips. We love to travel!

So we will be naming our signature cocktails after drinks we've had in special places: a margarita from Southernmost Point, a Pacific cocktail I had at the Hotel Del in San Diego when we got engaged, a Rum Runner from Duval Street...I'm sure we will think of others!


Instead of doing table numbers, I think I want to name the tables after the cities that we've visited and put a picture of us in that place with a little story about why that place is special to us. I definitely need some inspiration for this idea, so show me your non-traditional table 'numbers'!


I am SO EXCITED! Any more inspiration or feedback for me on this theme?! :)


(P.S. Ignore FI's "Viper" nickname...he thinks he's cool or something...)

That sounds awesome and so fun!  It's definitely important to incorporate things into your wedding that both of you love!  What part of MD are you in?
