I know a lot of you that read this are at the same point in life as I am - all of your friends are starting to get married and you go to showers and what not.

I've seen this before, but Michelle's bridesmaids presented her with a basket of candles and this poem. Just thought I'd google it, post it here, and give it as an idea of an extra something to give to your friends who are getting married.

A Basket of Candles
For bride's name

A basket of candles That come in a pair
In all different colors, For you two to share
The white ones burn first
They are wrapped in white lace
To celebrate your first married night
In your new chosen place
The green pair is taller, and also much thinner
Burn with the first company, you have over for dinner
The dark blue candles are for after your first fight
Use them to burn while making up all night
Pink candles set the mood and pave the way
For your first married Valentine’s Day
Now, when your first year of marriage is through
The cream anniversary pair, will light for you two.
Red candles aflame, both your futures are bright.
Celebrate promotions you’ve worked toward with all of your might.
By this time we hope, maybe, just maybe
You can light the purple ones, on the birth of your baby,
And just when you thought, you’d put these away
Take the light blue ones out-for your fifth anniversary day.
Now just one more pair left-for the big 2 5
The anniversary pair that will keep your love alive
Congratulations bride and groom (enter names)
On the start of your forever
May the two of you always be happy together
And burn these candles
Just the way we said
But please don’t forget-blow them out before bed!

Had anyone else ever heard of this before??

Kinda nauseating in a way too, but interesting!

No i've never heard it before but it gives me an idea for my cousin's wedding that's coming up. Thanks for the idea ;)

I think it's cute!

Kind of weird, but I like going to a wedding every year...but not too many because, to be honest, sometimes they're kind of boring if you don't know the people really well (a lot of waiting and sometimes the religious ceremonies just lose my attention completely...horrible of me to say), and sometimes they're reaaaally sappy.

But at the beginning of this year I didn't think I would be going to any weddings this year, and now it turns out I'm going to 5- a good girlfriend that I work with, one of my sorority sisters, and then 3 weddings of strangers- one of my good friend's really good friends, my best friend's high school best friend, and then a college friend's exgirlfriend [he asked me to go as "eyecandy" ...how could i resist?].

I have another pair of college friends that are getting married, and in our group of friends they only invited 1 out of like, 6 of us [isn't that kind of weird...the venue they chose is huge and so is their budget so they definitely made the choice to exclude people]...kind of weird! what fun is getting married if when you look around it's a bunch of your parents' friends you barely know and none of your own?
