Perhaps it's the teacher in me, but I assigned everyone an activity at our rehearsal. Oops.
You can the girl out of the classroom... (for the summer)
Each guest was invited to complete a Mad Lib about "The Happy Couple" which happened to be Scott and I. The Mad Libs asked guests where they traveled from, how long they had known us, and to leave us with some advice.
Much of the marital and relationship advice included to be kind, laugh, respect one another, tell jokes, maintaining personal hygiene (very important!), and always remember why we fell in love to begin with.
I purchased the Mad Libs for our rehearsal through Groopdealz earlier this spring, but there are many options available on Etsy. Click here to see more. The set we purchased can be found here.
The best part was reading the responses once we were home and settled after our honeymoon. I have to give credit to our friends and family - they are very creative with their adjectives!
For dinner, I was excited to include a few personal and family-centered details. For the main course, guests were invited to build their own burger. On two chalkboards, we encouaged guests to build the classic California favorite, "Big Mike" and the Sedalia, Missouri classic, "Guber Burger".
Why the "Bike Mike" you ask? Ask anyone in central Missouri about Burgher Haus and they'll be able to tell you about the great family-owned restaurant in California, Missouri. Scott's family has owned and operated the Burgher Haus since 1977. One of the many gems on the menu is the "Big Mike". I love visiting Burgher Haus with Scott because (a). everyone refers to him as Scottie (b). we get hugs from family members (c). the food is always amazing and (d). Jane's bread pudding (which happened to make an appearance at our wedding, too <-- details coming!)
Why the "Guber Burger"? Oh, I'm glad you asked. Whenever anyone asks me where I'm from, I always proudly state, "I'm from Sedalia, Missouri - home of the Missouri State Fair and the Guber Burger." Then, I get to rattle off all of these really fascinating facts about my hometown and leave people completely and utterly amazed.
We were surrounded by so many loving family and friends the entire night - and it was amazing. Just the tip of the iceberg for the entire weekend. Still counting our blessings (almost) a month later!
Writing about all of our wedding details is making me a little emotional - in a good way of course!
