{Guest Post by Twisted Limb Paper} Baseball, Bikes, and Breweries!

Today we have a guest post from Twisted Limb Paperworks. They offer a wide and varied selection of 100% recycled handmade paper and invitations created in their Bloomington, Indiana studio.

Considering your fiancé’s (and your) interests in the wedding plans

Sometimes it's easy to get caught up in the details of creating your ideal wedding. There are so many details to making your wedding day fit your exact specifications - the dress, the location, the flowers, that we often lose sight of the whole reason behind the big day. Your wedding day is meant to be a statement and celebration of beginning a new life with your loved one, and it's important that your wedding day to be a reflection of you AND your fiancé.

One way to accomplish this is to bring one (or many!) of your husband-to-be's interests into the ceremony, reception, or whole theme of the wedding. Are you both passionate about a baseball team? Many sports complexes offer wedding services or at the very least will allow you to have your photography done on the field. Round out the theme by featuring baseball-themed invitations and "concession stand"-style snacks.

Love cycling? For a more vintage feel to your wedding, choose a tandem bike over a limousine, like this couple did:

Does he have a passion for a well-made beer? Serve his favorite microbrews at the reception. For a more intimate feel, consider hosting the reception at his favorite pub.

Making you and your husband-to-be's shared interests a part of your wedding festivities will make your special day a true reflection of your love for one another. It is a also a great way to create meaningful memories for both you and your guests. So, before you dive in and begin planning your wedding, take a step back and think about what makes your relationship with your fiancé truly unique!
