Reception Ideas? Help!

So ive been super stressing over wedding planning lately... i feel like im SOOOO behind! all the money is starting to head out in the form of deposits. we chose a photographer, but im super worried 7 hours isnt enough time to capture all the important stuff... i want a videographer, but not sure if 4 hours is enough time, or if the 700-ish bucks is worth it... im going into a clinical melt down in regards to trrying to get any of the churches ive spoken with to talk to me about ceramonies and am pretty much ready to resort to a court house rental of the beach and random officiant.... so much! Did i mention that at this point save the dates would be moot... and since i dont have a ceramony im afraid my invites will be late!!!??? please tell me im not the only one!!! *cries and flails arms* BUUUT i think i've begun to visualise our "theme" and decorations... i see some of it, but am having a hard time meshing it all together, so i figured id post some insperation pics and see what you guys thought! We're going for a light asian theme, it goes well with our colors (Teal and poppy red) and FI and i are both heavily influenced by the asian culture. (i had at one point thought of putting the bridesmaids in kimono!) so tell my what you think, and how youd combine some of these elements! I love the idea of using lots of candles (and twinkling christmas lights!!) and im trying to cut the floral cost down... so am trying to think of non floral arangements, to maybe flip flop between tables. I really love the branch (reminds me of japanesse cherry blossoms) with the lanterns and candles hanging from them. i also love the idea of the chinese lanterns, and low dishes of floating flowers... and i really like the idea of the red string entertwined amongst all the decor, (branches, vases flowers and such) So what do you guys think? to me in my head it all seems too much... is their a way to be cohesive or is it wishful thinking? let me know what you guys think! help me out and keep me calm!

 Hey! Something that jumped out at me was when you mentioned the branches! One of my all time fav PW weddings was Natasha118, and she had branches as part of the decor. Here is her blog:

Although, the pics weren't showing up when I just checked it out, so hopefully it will work for you! Other than checking out her amazing branch decor...I think your ideas are great! Minimal flowers with the red twine, lanterns, and lights sounds beautiful!

 Yeah the pics arnt showing for me either. At least not on my phone. :( shame I'd love to have seen it! Do the pics on my board show at all? I couldn't get my actual post to post which is why the original is probably jumbled up and long.

Hi Kittywolf13. It looks like you're having the same problems others are having when using Internet Explorer, especially older versions of IE. PW (along with lots of other websites) just doesn't work properly with it. Have you tried using Chrome or Firefox? 

As for Natasha's pics, it looks like maybe she had them set to private before the switch to the new PW and didn't approve for them to go public, so they didn't transfer over. A quick search for branches at the top of the page brings back lots of pretty examples of branches used in decor, though. :)

 I don't normally use IE I hate it! I use chrome normally but my post wouldn't even send in chrome so I tried IE to see and it posted, just not with the pics and wasn't loading any of the icons to insert the images and such! Cause I know sometimes certain browsers don't like certain sites! 

Rhanks for the advice I will do a search and see what comes up when I have time.

 Most certainly on your wedding reception you can hire a band for your reception event entertainment. You can let them play your wedding song while most of you are busy with the reception this will give a good ambiance in the sorrounding of your wedding reception. Another one is to hire a great speaker that will entertain you during the reception. Your guests will not get bored and they will enjoy every hour of it.
