Exercise Follow-Up

Here is the exercise I had assigned us to complete.

These are the words we wanted to be used to describe our wedding:

  • elegant
  • fun
  • memorable
  • striking

Wade (with some prodding / checklists of words to pick from):
  • friendly
  • fun
  • joyous
  • momentous

Noticed we both picked "fun"? I remember that I picked my words, then Wade wanted to know what I picked. I think he wanted to know what I picked so he'd understand what he was supposed to do. When he learned that I'd picked "fun", he realized that was a word he wanted, too. I think he picked momentous when he wanted memorable, but he didn't want to copy me too much. Plus, I'm sure it will be momentous - for us, at least!

But I digress. The point of this "exercise" was not to create a list, but to consolidate our ideas to find out what we hoped our wedding day would be like.

I like this idea. And I like that your ideas/words fit so well together.

It's good to involve our guys in the process. I just wrote a post about it. I like this exercise as a way to create your vision and check in on what the other person is thinking about.
