Going back 10 years and I am reminded of my bridal shower when I recently came across one couple’s wedding photos. Jenny Tay and Darren Cheng, who work at Direct Funeral Services Ltd. in Singapore, have been all over social networks recently because of their wedding theme choice. Instead of the traditional garden walk, or beach backdrop the couple chose “‘Til Death Do Us Part” as their theme.
And people are going nuts!
When my husband and I proposed this exact theme for our wedding shower, we received the exact same reaction. Our families said we were destined to be doomed, that the spirits will haunt us forever and that we will always live in darkness.
But we proceeded anyway…
We planned an elaborate shower on Halloween (to make it more realistic) complete with a skeleton bride and groom, and photo-booth head-shots of ourselves dressed in Gothic clothing and looking like, well, death. Still to this day, I can honestly look back and say that I loved my shower. Everything about it was perfect, and to be honest, everyone understood our inspiration once it all came together.
What better way to start a lifetime together, then take into account our true intentions of forever, right?
Creepy, or cool? What do you think?
