The party had a beachy theme like look to it. Bryce & JC LOVE the water! So, with help of my mother, We put together the dinner beachy table centerpieces. Greenery [seaweed-like] was placed on the bottom. Then a round cirlce mirror top, Net was then placed on top, finished with a glass bowl filled with tan & navy blue sand... SEA Shells were then placed inside the bowl.
They were a great turn out. Another thing I created, which was my favorite, was the guest book. I completely made it from beginning to start. Rather than just everyday guest book where people sign there names because they see the book and pen, and then feel that they have too... I made a book where the guest gave their advice. Every page was different. Ex: How do you know the Bride & Groom? Or, Something Jeremy should NEVER say to Brycelyn? Or Words of Wisdom. Something Brycelyn should know about Jeremy?
This was a lot of fun. The last four pages, I did make where people could just sign.. and as I looked through it as the night passed, I noticed people were being boring and skipping the fun stuff. So, I announced for people to please share experiences/quotes/advice with Brycelyn & Jeremy. By the end of the night, we had some HILARIOUS stuff. My favorite was under the "Marriage Advice" page; Fight Naked, It solves arguements faster! - Oh, I gotta kick out of it. But, as for the party itself.. Me & Mrs. Janet couldn't have asked for a happier turn out! The first hour was a bit of mingling, then once everyone had arrived, I started with a toast. Yes, I got up and told a story about the two, and when I was finished Christoper, Jerermy's oldest brother, poped the Champagne Bottle, Said Cheers, and then Mr. Lee Benson, Jeremy's Granddaddy said Grace.
Ate the delicious dinner Mrs. Janet prepared with a little help from others, mingled more... and that's when the party started. A LOT of dancing.
We had a WONDERFUL turn out, and most importantly, Brycelyn & Jeremy seemed very happy and felt on top of the world.
