I love looking at wedding pics. On Facebook (hello friends of friends - do you know I'm stalking your wedding?), on blogs, in magazines.
I find myself cooing over all the little details. OoOOOOoooh. Look at those lovely little things on the tables. Look at the favours. Look at those cute letters and the arty craftness of it all.
And then I think: Hmm. I am not sure about this.
If you look at our wedding, from a distance, I like to think you'd see a big group of tipsy people all acting daft.
If you look at the photos, I think you'll see people. And then more people. Maybe us. And then maybe a nice view.
In years to come, I'm going to want to look back at the pictures of people, and us. Maybe one or two of the view.
I'm not sure I will ever want to look at an artfully arranged table displays or other bits of crafty ephemera or photos of my shoes looking arty in the grass with the wedding rings around the heel? Or will I?
If there are details, I think they need to be edible. Sweets are good. Letters are horrendously expensive. Bunting is good - it can be made in large volumes and at low cost. Massive jars of sweets are good. Tasty.
But what else will people remember? Do these things matter?
