The other day I received a mysterious package in the mail (much better than those non-mysterious bills with their clear windows of horror). It was a hen handcrafted out of felt. There was no message in the envelope and no return address either. Just a cute hen.
The next day, I looked at it a little more forensically and found, tucked inside, a paper “egg”. Printed on it was invitation details to a hen’s night.
Pretty classy and highly creative! I was so impressed that I had to bring it into work to let other people see it (there were gasps and much awe expressed – the office is the adult version of show-and-tell.)
It got me thinking – sure, weddings can leach people of sanity and patience, turning normal folk into this hyper-competitive self-focused version of themselves. At the same time, it can also draw out some cool ideas.
I especially like the wedding menu above, complete with bow-tie and details of the white chocolate mousse being served for dessert. It was created by Natasha who I used to work with.
This also reminds me of the time my cousin got married and her wedding invite matched the actual wedding cake.
Nice to know that it’s not all Bridezilla craziness and that there are inspired moments in the lead up to people saying “I do”.
