    The wedding will be Jan 17. While we didn't plan it that way, the wedding will be the day before the AFC and NFC championship games...would be a really nice wedding present for the Steelers to be in it and since my birthday is Jan 18, it would be an amazing birthday present for them to win it!!!

    Thanks again, all!
    Wow...your hubby-to-be has to get you Christmas, anniversary, and birthday presents all within about a 3 week window every year?

    Well, actually, it's not as bad as it sounds. His birthday is Dec. 16, so we decided a LONG time ago that we were not getting each other birthday presents, but instead get a night out on our b-days of whatever we want to do. So, on his birthday we get together with some friends, go to the local bar, and drink beeer and shoot pool. On my birthday, we go out to dinner somewhere I enjoy. As far as Christmas goes, we decided this past year that rather than trying to get each other gifts (since we pretty much go out and get whatever we want when we want it anyway), we'd pick something out that we both want. It worked so well that we decided to keep doing that. (This past Christmas it was our 42" HDTV, this year, we may get a Wii, or we may just put whatever money we'd spend towards our honeymoon). For the aniversary, or at least what we've done since we've started dating, is alternate who gets to choose what to do. So, some years we've gone to shoot pool (always his choice), sometimes we've gone bowling, gone out to a movie, gotten a really good dinner, whatever. It may not work for everyone, but it does for us.

    For those of you getting married and wanting to incorporate the Steelers into the wedding here are a few thoughts (juts got married 10 months ago). The wife wasn’t up for TT’s at the wedding but the rehearsal dinner was all mine.

    Print a colored photo of the Steelers logo and take it to a bakery that does wedding cakes. They’ll be able to make a great Steelers Groom’s cake for you. Mine was huge – white all over with a black outline and the Steelers spelled out with the three hypercycloids in their respective colors across the top.

    We used Terrible Towels as place mats and center pieces. A lot less needed than supplying the entire wedding guest list. Let people take them home or you end up with a bunch of TT’s for yourself. We used half 75th anniversary towels and then regular ones.

    Instead of numbering the tables at the rehearsal dinner I named each table after a Steeler. My wife and I and family sat at the Jack Lambert table. We had the Joe Green, Mel Blount, Hines Ward, Terry Bradshaw, etc. tables and each person came in and under their name it had the Steelers name so they new which table. We printed out Color action photos of each player and had that in the center so they could find the proper table.

    A couple of banners up and you can get cheap ‘picnic packs” of plastic Steelers cups to decorate the tables. Black and gold napkins. We had a private back room of a very nice Italian place and made it a Steelers heaven. One of my groomsmen’s wives kept saying “I can’t believe your fiancé allowed this”

    Really cool ideas! I like the ideas for the rehersal dinner...alas, my mother is taking it over, so she won't go for that...she likes the Steelers and all, but thinks my obsession with football is a bit sick. She's really not sure how her daughter turned out like that. Oh well...
