Another escort card idea...

Apples... not just yummy... pretty too! And pretty cheap to buy in bulk (find local Costco! Follow by sigh of relief) or go apple picking with your future hubs and/or your bridal party (if they love you a lot a lot) to get your supply. Then just add a little bit of homegrown craftiness to get this...

Another great thing about these is that an apple is said to be a representation of the Jewish community. Our culture, religion, and history is something that has brought me and the Big Guy even closer, it is something we frequently discuss and find joy in discovering (for me) and re-discovering (for him) together. I think it would be great if we could include more cultural Jewish aspects to our wedding besides the religious aspects that we will be highlighting during the ceremony.

And, it is still sort of a shout-out to where the Big Guy is from (Washington state, apples ... get it?) and NY is the Big Apple! Ok, ok I might be reaching the cheesiness threshold.

I posted another fun thing you can use apples for for the wedding at my blog. Apples are a great versitile wedding decoration.

That could be a fun challenge, to make an apple inspiration board.
