I am getting married January 4, 2014. We are trying our best to get things on sale.
Our current find is our picture frame guestbook. Online they range from 50-over 200$ We were walking around Michaels and found found on sale for 15$!
I am searching for ideas for decorating the church and the reception.
My plan is to go elegant and romantic. The bridesmaids are going to be wearing black (I havent decided on long or tea length), the groomesmen and my fiance will wear black tuxes with a black tie. I want red roses (I love the idea of a pop of red) I want my bridesmaids to have red and white roses and I want all red. I decided that our only alcohol will be wine and champagne because I feel that it is "classier" than any hard liquor and beer in the mix. For our reception we decided to have a buffet style. We will have our meat statios, vegetable stations, mashed potato bar, etc. For dessert we will be having our cake, an ice cream bar, we are doing a full chocolate bar (we were thinking tsll glasses of heart shaped Dove chocolates in a few different flavors, and other size glasses filled with things like chocolate covered coffee beans, etc.) Along with coffee and tea we decided to add a hot chocolate bar also with anassortment of things to use such a cinnoman, different flavors to add, etc. Our venue is a beautiful country club called Valleybrook owned by Ron Jaworski. We have a ballroom and a back deck (it will be "zipped" up so we won't be cold!) The deck will havd 3 lit fireplaces. Above the fireplaces are tv's. We are thinking of maybe having a slideshow of pictures playing during the coctail hour starting from when we were babies and ending at the most recent pictures we have.
I am open to any ideas for decorating, etc. I do want a lot of candles and the lights to be a bit dim to add to the romantic feel.
