Well that was really all it was for me.

I had the side garden salad they served and tried to avoid the dressing. I got off clean on the main meal of steak because the sauce was way too salty to enjoy. So I didn't eat my main and when the dessert came around I said I was too hot to eat something so sweet and just sipped on my ice water.

I did end up deciding on what the wedding favours will be!! D is from Newfoundland and we decided to bring in some of his heritage/side of the family into the wedding. We are going to get small jars of Partridgeberry jam shipped in from Newfoundland (it's a very popular preserve there and it can only be found at farmers' stands on the side of the road). The other thing we're doing is we're going to get little mini-bar bottle of Newfie Screech. Now I'm not sure if you have heard of Screech (not the Saved By The Bell character) but it's a liquor that is made from mixing 8 different dark Jamaican rums and re-distilling it to make it more potent. I've heard it's pretty awful.

Anyways, the reason why we're giving everyone a little bottle of Screech is because we're going to Screech the entire wedding in (guests and all!). Basically we will be making everyone at the reception honourary Newfoundlanders. I can't find a link to the real ceremony but here is a link to a shortened version I think this is going to be hilarious and a lot of fun! The difference to what we'll do is that when you have to repeat the line we're going to be doing the full poem. I had found it once but I can't seem to find it.

Anyways I thought it would original and cute and defnitely be memorable.

Well it's back to work for me and then off to the gym this evening. I think D and I are going to see a movie tonight. Not sure what though.

  1. are you going to make them kiss a cod? :) Either way, I think it sounds like a wonderful idea. So unique & certainly special to you both. That is what weddings should be about.
