We are having two tents, with a smaller tent linking them, to accommodate an awesome tree in the middle of the yard.  All tables will have line of sight to the dance floor, where most of the events will occur.  I plan to hang paper lanterns in our colors from the rafters of the tent, and in the trees.  Various sizes of lanterns will be used.

The bar will be in the back, and the food towards the front, so that should make sure everyone circulates and nobody feels "exiled".  We will have white chairs, and white tableclothes (3/4 length so they will sit about 6in above the grass) with lavender organza overlays.  Our dishes will be silver-rimmed.

Centerpiece Inspiration: Peonies and Hydrangea

Wedding Countdown Ticker

I love the guestbook.  To me, this is a true keepsake of the wedding, much like pictures, but instead of images preserving thoughts- hopes, dreams, good wishes, names.  I would love to have one that could be displayed in a home someday.  A traditional book of course can go on a shelf, but that isn't so much "displayed" as "stored in easy reach".  I love the concept of wishing bowls, but scraps of paper don't strike me as good decor.

The idea I came up with is to purchase large river rocks and paint pens, so the guests can inscribe their greetings on the stones, and the stones can then be stored in a large fishbowl that can be displayed in a cabinet or on a table.  Googling "writing on rocks" I quickly discovered this site.  I can probably get rocks for less money, but it demonstrates that the idea is at least sound!  It also fits our outdoor garden party concept really well.

Naturally most of these won't look good on me.  In particular, I think the dropped waist is a no-no, unfortunate given current styles.  Poofy will be ok- I can reach almost 5'11" in the right heels- and I'm really not a fan of mermaids or trumpets.  But I do <3 these and hope to at least try them on, or similar gowns. :)
