It’s wedding week in Vienna! Not ours though (that was nearly three and a half years ago now – if one can believe it) but good friends of ours are arriving tomorrow for a kind of wedding, kind of elopement, kind of small family celebration, that we are VERY excited to be part of.
The stars of the show arrive tomorrow and we’ve been busy sprucing everything up to make sure we’re all systems go for the big day on Friday. So to kick off Vienna wedding week, I’m shamelessly borrowing a guest post that Mrs. Lillien did for 100 Layer Cake about honeymooners in Europe – it just might inspire the bride and groom for some last minute packing ideas. Frankly, it inspired ME for some ideas on what to wear about town.
Meet Mr. + Mrs. Honeymoon – this dashing young couple is jetting off to Europe for a post wedding sojourn – they’ve got big plans to sightsee, celebrate and swoon. Touring by day and painting the town red by night – they’ve got this trip dialed with all their newlywed might! He took care of the hard get dinner reservations – she planned the swanky over night accommodations – together they planned the ultimate european vacation!!
They’ve packed their bags with a smattering of Honeymoon essentials – from head to toe fashions, honeymoon enhancements and plenty of sentimentals! They’ll hit all the big spots and hunker down in all the hidden gems – they’ll stay up all night canoodling and reciting their wedding poems! She with her luggage suite, and he his singular suitcase – they’ve brought what they needed and then some, you know… just in case! She brought along an extra trunk for all their honeymoon shopping – it doesn’t stand a chance to go home empty with the wedding cash she’ll be dropping!
There’ll be endless silly tourist pictures and lots of hand holding – entries in their travel journal and all kinds of flirtatious cajoling! They’ll be long romantic lunches where they’ll share both their dishes – followed by long winded strolls with plenty of stolen kisses – you dare not expect anything less from this new minted Mr. and Mrs.!
