I like these bouquets, but I'm pretty set on having calla lillies... the 3rd bouquet is my favorite, maybe with some white calla lillies in the mix. AND without all the greenery - not really diggin' that part of it.
So, I'm really excited about DIY-ing some of the stuff for the wedding
Invitations - Black cardstock, with cream cardstock overlay. There will be a purple lace band that goes across the middle, and then a small black ribbon that goes across the top of the lace.
Escort cards - http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-wedding-challenge-diy-escort-cards - but w/ possibly with a cream colored lace although idk if it'll look too "antique," and the ribbon would be purple.
Save the dates - the above-escort card, but the name tag will say "Save the Date," and inside will have all the information, maybe on a magnet. I don't think we're going to have our pics on the STD.
Pomanders - I'm going to have alternating purple and cream pomanders on the aisle chairs, attached to black ribbon
Favors: cupcakes in baby food jars, but with purple food coloring. http://www.flickr.com/photos/94552249@N00/4462906928/in/photostream/ -- the lids will be painted purple, with a black ribbon around it. Sticker on top w/ our initials and the date. Jar will get wrapped in either black lace with cream colored ribbon/bow or purple lace with black ribbon/bow
Bracelet: Something similar to this. There were instructions somewhere on PW to DIY!
I also want to DIY the table numbers. I'm thinking wooden numbers painted black and then with some jewels glued on.
My fiance and I have an ADORABLE -- trust me, you could eat him up! - little boy. Sebastian James Parker. He's 18 months as of Feb 17 '11. He's going to be the ring bearer in the wedding :)
My fiance is a huge Baltimore Ravens fan (damn-near obsessed), so we decided to use a royal purple and black with cream accents.
