The plan was to set the room up so that it looked like this w/deep red pintuck linens or a candy apple red linen.

I worked with a vendor overseas using my old product development background and got them to recreate the Z.Gallerie bling votive replica:

They landed on American soil for the 1st time in April 2010 thanks to 9 very determined brides!  There are now over a 1000 of these little guys running on the wedding circuit here in PW land and matching items that 2 other groups have brought to fruition since then!

*setting table with all my wedding decor and details*

BFF:  "I see what direction you're going in with this decor now..."

Me:  "Yeah, Old Hollywood Glamour meets Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra, right?

BFF:  "Mmmmmm, yeah, but its more...sexy like..."  *she's thinking*

BFF:  "....Agent Provocateur.  That's it!"

My BFF nicknamed my wedding this when I showed her all my design elements and decor.  So I ran with it. 

I have a ton of large black ostrich feathers that were going to be a part of my centerpiece focal points that will also be for sale.


This was going to be my bouquet

I was also going to add touches of black & white stripe ribbon to my decor

The Bridesmaid's bouquets in particular with this type of ribbon (no white flowers though)

 My girls initial brooches attached to their bouquets.  The flash does these no justice, they're so sparkley! 



Reception Centerpieces

The venue we booked had a high tented ceiling with crystal chandeliers, so we were going to have high and low centerpieces for the tables. 

42 of these mini vases:

And the low centerpieces are a distressed mercury glass apothecary jar.  I bought 7 of these:

It kind of looks like a spotted black in the above pic (because of the flash from my camera), but its actually a speckled silver mirror finish.  I would have been using all black bacarra, grand prix, and freedom roses.

I was inspired by these photos of another wedding and I love the little beaded lamps:

So I bought these:



Escort Card Table

I really like the look of this escort card arrangement, so I have a escort card box that would of been filled w/red flowers and place the card holders inside like the pic below.

With the escort card holders like these pictured in black:



Since there were touches of black/white stripe, I decided to use an umbrella with stripes for pics.  I think know I found the idea from KCollette of the stripe pagoda umbrella.
