Will you sign my... bench?
Adding to my Unconventional Guest Book series:
I was thinking we could make a bench together (take a stab at being handy wood workers) or have one of the men in my family (Grandaddy!) make us a wooden bench. Neither AJR or I have ever constructed quite a project... so it may be wise to have a helping hand :)
But it could also be a really fun thing to do together, so we shall see! (Assuming he likes this idea for the wedding)
I love the idea of doing this because:
a) I like the do-it-yourself model or having something hand-made
b) Amazing keepsake, functional and sentimental!
c) It's unique. Betcha most people have never signed a bench at a wedding!
It would be fun to make design plans and deciding where we would want the bench once the wedding is over. It could be a neat hallway piece in the house (what a conversation starter!) or a cute little spot to sit together in the evenings outside.
This blog is a place to store my ideas and progress on planning the perfect party to celebrate spending the rest of my life with my best friend (AJR). While I won't forget to wear something blue that day... the theme is GREEN :)
