Pretty in Purple Our escort map was a 4-foot by 6-foot world map. We love to travel and named our tables after some of our favorite places in the world. Each guest’s name was attached to the map by a pushpin located at the point on the map corresponding with the table name. Once the guests found the location of their tables, we had directions on the map asking them to place their pushpin on their favorite travel destination. Our cake toppers were custommade figurines personally designed by the groom to represent our nicknames, Sugar and Pickle, in formal wear. We took a significant amount of time to do a mash-up/compilation of six Jason Mraz songs and a choreographed dance. Sadly, we forgot the CD at the hotel, and instead slow danced to “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain. It was the biggest thing that went wrong all day, and ultimately, it was no big deal. My advice: Start planning early and keep in mind that almost every idea will change, even if just a little bit, as you go.

We were having so much fun on the dance f l oor, we kept the Ranch romping until 2:00 am. Recommended Vendors Venue: Sleeping Beauty Ranch (see page 79).
