Ah, June. The
month of blushing brides and giddy grooms.
We all know
that wedding entertainment consists of the band or deejay. Maybe some dancers to get the guests out onto the dance floor. And that's it.
Or is it? Guess what's on
the cusp of also getting a foothold in the firmament of fun features at
Welcome to the June installment of Not
Your Usual Caricature Artist.
Bee, an online site
for brides, posed this poll question:
Caricatures -- Stupid or Fun?
"Yes, so fun, I would love it as a guest."
"No, save your money and do something different."
responded to "Other."
Some of the
respondents also added further thoughts on the subject:
* I think
it is a good idea. People like to have something to DO and something
to take with them. * I think it would be super fun!
* I think
it sounds like a super fun idea. I would be so excited if I encountered this at
a wedding. * I love the idea!! I
think it’s unique and fun!! Think ~ the people you are inviting are your loved
ones and friends ~ there’s a reason they are in your “circle” and most likely
MOST of them have similar tastes as you do ~ so if you like ~ I bet the
majority of your guests would like it!
I've done a few weddings this year already and I must chime in -- hearing words from guests
to the effect that (even when guests didn't think I was listening), "This
is great -- what a clever, fun idea!"
Wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, bachelor/bachelorette
parties are great occasions to let
one's hair down and have guests...as well, of course, as the bride and groom
and their respective families...enjoy the truly customized experience of having
their caricature drawn.
It's a gift that truly lasts a lifetime.
Here are some happy campers from recent weddings I've drawn at:
See you again the first Tuesday of next month for another marriage
made in Heaven -- you and Not Your Usual Caricature Artist.
