Whee! Okay, some of you have probably already seen this photos, but I'm just copying all the ones I've previously posted on this thread: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=134959.0
So, here are my ideas so far. First off, I will be using a lot of coffee filter roses as decorations. I'm not sure whether they will be table bouquets or just vines strung up and wound around the wooden supports at our reception hall. Here are the first two I made:
Any suggestions on what to do with these lovely things would be much appreciated. I'm still thinking of using real flowers in my bouquet, though my fiancee says I should go with the paper ones as their more unique. My problem is I love the smell of real flowers too much.
Instead of the traditional veil, I decided to go with a mask. A veil hides and protects a person, whereas a mask is something we make, and something we put on to shape the way the world sees us.
For a mask, I have two ideas. Now, my mom is also on this forum and she's making the mask so any tips you folks can offer would be great. Our first idea was something like this, done in black wire:http://18thcenturycorsets.smugmug.com/gallery/41788_XwTWv
I've managed to figure out that the way she makes these is some kind of knit/crochet done with wire, and my mom has attempted this once but no real results yet, as the wire she has is too thick.
My other thought, as I have been obsessed with the movie Labyrinth since age 8 and can by now recite pretty much the entire script by heart, was a leather mask something along the lines of the masks offered by:http://www.angel-mask.com/movindex.htm
The design I like best was on another site, but I don't remember the address anymore.
For a wedding cake, since we're both gamers and play d&d a lot, I'm thinking of using some kind of mini, like the ones here:http://www.reapermini.com/
I thought I might do the cake to look like a d&d map, for those that play think the GameMastery style maps, the ones you battle on not like the maps of Faerun. It's that or a castle or some such. I was hoping to have us at the top, and minis for the rest of the bridal "party" (pardon the pun) on the lower levels of the cake.
As for wedding favors, I've bought 144 tiny glass bottles off ebay, and some aged parchment paper to make little scrolls, as well as some leftover black sand that never made it into our lizard tank.
Well, that's all for now. If I get time, I'll have pictures of the wedding dress and the bridesmaids dresses as well. For now, if it helps anyone, the bridesmaids are in black and white, and the dress is an off white.
