My grandpa has been carving birds for decades. I asked him if he could make me 2 small robins for cake toppers (our theme was "Two little birds") and he was happy to :) These little guys are sitting in a nest above my bed now. They are perfect.
For part of our ceremony, we decided to plant a wedding tree (ok, by "plant" I mean symbolically put dirt and water in and by "tree" I mean lilac, because they are awesome.) It was fun and unique and I got to put on gloves - not gardening gloves like I originally thought but my great grandmother's fancy gloves, which were equally cool :)
