Our ceremony will have string instrumentals of songs that I like by the Vitamin String Quartet. (Played on a laptop.)


 


Then the rest of the reception will have various songs that we like (yeah, including metal). Non danceable ones will be during dinner and danceable ones will be during the rest of the party.


We're also having a live jazz band perform for an hour so the old folks don't leave. hahaha


 


As for the small details: The catering and bar staff will all wear skull and crossbone ties. My half -bro is wearing a tie with skulls and damask. I have a parasol with skulls on it. And my card box is my guitar case. I was considering displaying my guitar, but I would have a fit if someone went and signed it!


 


The lounge will have art books on the tables. Some are rock poster art, some have logo designs for bands, etc.


 


And the fact that I'm not doing any traditions (aside from the cake cutting). Doing what you want and what represents you is rock 'n roll!

Well instead of flower arrangements for centrepieces, were having a large vase like shaped light with large feathers coming out ...and most of our music will be based on rock.

DH and best man played "Baby I'm Amazed" by Paul McCartney as the toast.


I had an iced tea table............


 DH and best man photo 915162-1DH and best man photo 915162-2


and drank out of plastic cups with straws...


with parasols hanging from the ceiling and teapots on every table...


and a Jack White themed groom's table....


nothing fancy and plenty of iced and hot teas as well as tea party food treats and a whimsical tea themed candy table even......


NO DANCING, but we said hello and chatted with every single person... it was a happy time.
