The Best Boyfriend, Fiance, and Husband Awards Go to....
"Are you going to give a toast at the reception?" That's what my then fiance kept asking me week after week. Each time I would tell him "No, I don't like speaking in front of crowds."
He kept telling me the toasts would be "An opportunity to declare our love for each other." He had been working on his toast to me for months. LOL. Little did he know that I had come up with my own fun and flirty plan. Knowing he loves awards, he has three bowling trophies that he's quite proud of, I decided to order a trophy for him that said "Best Husband" and planned to present it to him during the toasts at our reception.
When the time came I was shocked at how inexpensive trophies are if you know where to order them from. I found these Oscar style awards on marble bases at www.K2awards.com. They were $15.99 each and I had one with his name on each one for each of the three stages of our relationship: Best Boyfriend, Best Fiance and Best Husband. The dates on each one corresponded to the dates of each phase from our first date to the day before our engagement, our engagement date to the night before our wedding and our wedding date to "every day after."
So there we were at our reception and imagine his shock when our master of ceremonies announced that it was time for the "Awards" portion of the reception. I stepped up to the podium and did my best to articulate to our family and friends why John is just the best guy ever.
