So why am I posting about our meal on our wedding blog? Last night I realized once again that as long as you chose options that are true to who you are, the chances that a meal or a wedding will be "you" and not "cookie cutter" increase tenfold.
Here's why... the last restaurant I chose for our quarterly dinner, Limon, has become one of the crewe's favorites - he's been back there 4 times since we went in January. Earlier in the afternoon, he'd been asking me what I loved about the food - he hadn't heard of Mission Beach Cafe before. We'd had a discussion about beets and sure enough the flatbreads that I loved arrived with beets. He enjoyed the flatbreads (and the meal).
My nervousness about whether my work crewe would like my dinner choice reminded me of the various choices cubes and I are making for our wedding. As a couple, it's so easy to get caught up in the idea of being original, that is specifically wanting to do something you've never seen on a wedding blog and tossing out what you'd first dreamed of to find something "new." (We haven't done this - we're still having the cork escort card holders. We're still incorporating books in our table decor.)
