Perfect Wedding Song

While Mircea and I won't really be having a "first dance" as a married couple, simply because I can't see putting him through that, I've selected one of the songs for the montage of pictures from the wedding and honeymoon to play at our reception.

The song is called Today, by Joshua Radin, and I first heard it when Ellen Degeneres played a montage of photos from her wedding to Portia de Rossi. It really is a beautiful, simple song, and I think it's just a perfect wedding song. I've posted the link to the video, for some reason blogger isn't accepting youTube videos anymore. Click here for the song.

**note the subtitles. I'm not sure which Asian language they are, but I think it's funny that I couldn't find the U.S. version of this video.

Can You Do Me a Favor?

Wedding favors are so much fun, yet can be a total pain in the butt to try and figure out. There are so many cute things, but I’m all about utility and don’t want to buy things that are just going to get pitched in the trash on the way out. (Do you want to see me cry? I’ll do it.) I’m trying to come up with some ideas that people will enjoy and get some use out of. Personalized M&Ms seem to work for me (what has more utility than chocolate?) as well as some sort of plantable item. It is fun to look at the stuff, and the beachy theme items are really cool on the Oriental Trading Company site. I’ve also been toying with a betta fish as a center piece idea...I don’t think Peta will be mad at me for that, right? Does anyone have any suggestions or a good place to purchase wedding favors?
