What are you planning if anything since your wedding is such a long time from now?
i'm doing a pinecone/paper doily theme (i know, i know, it sounds weird) so i am looking for pinecones of all sizes--small, medium, large, ginormous. also trying to see about getting free/reduced prices on a lot of different things during the holidays--lights, decorations, etc.
oh thats very cool
Our theme is Enchanted Forest. We're planning to do trees lining the aisle and to stand under at the altar (about 6 total). We're also doing all paper flowers (except personal flowers, bouquets, bouts, etc.). Half our reception centerpieces will be tall trees and the other half will be low black boxes all with paper flowers. Also planning to do a large paper flower wall to put behind the sweetheart table. So much more in my mind, I could keep typing til this box is full, lol. =)
your flower wall? something like this?
Somewhat similar (that staircase is GORGEOUS, btw). Here's my inspiration pic. =)
I'm doing a lot of bunting with scrap fabric I've saved up, making paper flowers, and other small DIY things from materials I've owned for years. Along with that, I'm just doing general planning, looking up rates around the area so I know what the average is, searching up things online, etc.
We want to honour our familes. So it's a combined theme. Autumn-Family-Harvest.
Colours are mainly silver and burgandy with black and rose pink accents.
Lots of leaves, berries, trees, candles and nuts. Stationary revolves around a picture of a tree and family surnames appear as table names.
We have been together over 15 years and our children will be honoured as well.
Theme color researching venues
Im the same... just doing research trying to figure out what I like the most. There are so many amazing options now avalible it's a bit overwhelming... I feel like I could go in 4 different directions! But Tommy and I are trying narrow everything down and making this relate to us at people and as a couple rather then what just looks amazing... he has his music thing I have dance... so we are trying to figure out how to encorperate thoes into a theme... I do know that I really like a simple black and white with teal/ turqouise accents for the colors =D so excited!!!!!
Isn't it great to have the time to get everything together? It's nice to not feel pressured into something or to have to settle :)
I'm so glad for all this time. I only have to make about 2,000 paper flowers, lol. And a lot of other stuff that I've committed myself to doing. I really want to have our stamp on everything and I feel like this way we'll be able to do that. =)
My venue, decor, etc.
I'm planning on booking my venue ASAP!!! That's a major reason we are switching the date/year, because our dream venue is completely booked for 2012.
