The Candy Anniversary

Traditional gift tables suggest that the sixth anniversary gift should be candy or iron. Let me tell you how much I prefer the idea of candy.

This isn't really blog relevant at all, but we can cast our minds back to the movie quiz or the great attic cleaning, and I can explain that at our wedding reception, the tables were all named for romantic films--we were living in the movie capital of the world after all. We had twenty-two tables, but really, who wants to be relegated to table 22? The table names were in pewter frames on the tables with a quote from each movie. We took them out of my mother's attic during the great clean up and gave away the frames, but kept the quotes. My mother thought I should take 22 frames home to display, but really...where? So I'll be putting the quotes into a scrapbook, or not, someday. Some of the table names: Meet the Parents, Casablanca, When Harry Met Sally..., It Happened One Night, The Nutty Professor (a lot of our friends are English professors), So I Married an Axe Murderer (we do have a sense of humor), The Princess Bride (the children's table), Four Weddings and a Funeral, Moonstruck, Ground Hog Day (we started dating February 2, 1992), Philadelphia Story, The English Patient, Singin' in the Rain, Barefoot in the Park, Il Postino, Pride and Prejudice, and Shakespeare in Love.

(Third from the right.)
Happy Anniversary, dude.

Men in kilts just kill me. It's that Scottish ancestry raring up. ;)

Happy anniversary! I'd want to sit at the Barefoot in the Park table - I rented that film so many times they should've just given it to me.

Gorgeous photo of you in your wedding dress. :) I love the kilts, too. Happy Anniversary to you and the dude.

Happy Anniversary! The pictures are wonderful. I would have loved to have been seated at the Philadelphia Story table or maybe the So I Married an Axe Murderer table because I'm twisted that way. What a great story. Congratulations!

Your dress was gorgeous, I love that train.
