Ok i didnt notice that i never did a ceremony section. duh!!! here is the ceremony spot of the Museum! Its the rotunda and boy is it round. This was the first and last venue me and FI checked out when we were looking. We fell in love with how different it was and the price wasnt too shabby either! Also, when the ceremony is over they will host a tour of the museum!!!! This will give us time to go get pictures taken and something to entertain the guest as well. Plus saving money on a cocktail hour lol :) Its funny in the middle of the rotunda your voice echos like nobodys business! helloooooooooo hellooooooooo hellooooo:)
This is the rotunda of the musuem where the ceremony will take place. the image above is where the wedding party will walk out. The rotunda is circular so we are doing semi circle seating at the exact spot you see in the pic above and our "altar" will be in the center!!!
For the ceremony decor I want rose petal line or scattered aisleway. I cant make up my mind lol! Thanks to PW bride for finding these images for me!
At our altar we are going to do two huge arrangements. Described from our florist on our quote as two large vases ( they are large from the floor up to 4-5 feet) with gold curly willow and ice branches with hanging white dendrobium, very full looking and uplighted. Here are some pics to give you an idea of what my vision was on this!
See the tree/arrangement in the background?! images from the knot!
We will also be adding some canned lights along the aisleway to brighten it up a bit in case the sunsets early and give the rotunda some light.
We are also doing chaircovers as well. I cant remember what we decided on, but i know it will look gorgeous!!
We are going to do programs as well. I think its important for people to know who's who and the order of the ceremony. Im thinking of having a friend to read a poem as well. Im thinking of getting them done by an etsy seller but that is still up in air until the time comes.
I'm currently in talks with an etsy seller that does high end silk flower bouquets! I did want to go the real flower route but the florist wanted way too much and I didnt want to worry about ordering flowers and having my wed coordinator put them together. I think I would be more at ease to get exactly what I want and knowing its over and done. At first, I thought i wanted an all calla lillie bouquet, but roses mixed with callas or whatever all white bouquets have been catching my attention. We are also talkin about adding some feathers to the bouquet. She also does hand tied and bouquet holder as well. For my bridesmaids and groomsmen they are going to have red roses for bouquet and bouts. For the groom, he will do a white single calla. The seller is in the process of ordering the silks and then will do a mock bouquet for me to see before I finalize my order. She makes bouquets, bouts, wrist corsages, cake arrangements and pomanders. The price isnt too shabby either. I will post pics and a better recommendation and who the seller is once I get to see the sample.Then I can be an AW and post about it in the forum. Stay tuned!
Pics of what I like so far for me!
<------ this is pw bride kristeen bouquet. its exactly what i want! i heart it!
Bridesmaids in red roses!
Some more flower inspiration! I love the feather and the warm tones of the roses against the brown! I am having a new found love for roses now!
Etsy seller is doing my flowers and here is a sample of our bridesmaids bouquet she created. open and close bud red roses with mocha and latte lace wrapping. i love it!
We are using three songs that flows in together for the processional where the parents walk out, bridesmaids and then myself. Its by a gospel group named COMMISSIONED on their reunion cd and ive been in love with these songs ever since the cd has been out and promised myself it would be in my wedding. Visions start early do they not!
"Please you more" seating of mothers or family. Possibly the groom with best and Pastor will walk out to this at the same time. I cant remember at what point the groom walk out, if its before the mothers walk in or after.
"Secret Place" Bridesmaids will walk out along with flower girls and ring bearer.
"Find Myself in You" what a fitting song for me to walk out to.
Yep i will be in tears!
All, if not most of the weddings I have been to had programs. If it didnt, I felt lost as far as what was next. Yes, programs is optional and it may not be kept by others afterwards ( who cares), but i feel its such a nice and elegant touch. Here is some inspirational pics that I like. I may be DIY these unless I find a better deal!
Here are our finished programs! They were 3 pages of love completed at 3 a.m. in the morning! Eric designed them using word and we took to a local printing shop who printed, hole punch and cut them! We used white linen paper that we scored at a great deal at a local paper shop( if only i knew they were around i wouldnt of orderd online) that our printer recommended. We added chocolate brown ribbon as well. Eric did a good job duplicating my inspiration pics!
