Morning ladies. I have a wedding to plan in less than like 90 days.
Theme: Alice in Wonderland
FH:Mad Hatter
Bride: White Rabbit
Brides Maids: Queens of a suit (hearts, diamonds, clubs and spades)
GM: Kings of a suit
Ring Barer: Boink Twins (tweedle dee and tweedle dumb)
Flower Girl: Alice

We are thinking of doing it in a local casino that has an atrium with a small waterfall.
I have a few DIY ideas.

1. Coffee filter bouquets... haven't decided if they are going to be white... or let it be dramatical and make them red... maybe white with red tips... we will find out when the crafting commences.
2. Hair pieces for BM... are going to be their card (queen of hearts, diamonds, club and spades) thinking i am going to up play them with rhinestones, feathers, lace, somethin.
3. Center pieces... im getting some saucers and coffee/ tea cups, going to stack them and throw some beads, cards, feathers on them. Im thinking of adding tea lights some where on these, tho i dont know where.

For the wedding i am envisioning very intimate reds, white, black, then when we go to the reception, that's  it party is on.  Very whimsical, i don't want to spend a billion dollars in linens, so as i am getting the supplies for the center pieces i am looking for flat sheets. Floral designs, plain, colored, but using them for table cloths. 

Will add more as I come up with ideas or to add the "look what i did" pictures.
Any ideas ladies is very welcomed. Ive seen a few of the Alice weddings on here... VERY BEAUTIFUL!!!

More thoughts.
I am doing this on a small budget...

-want to do a cupcake tower, haven't thought about the flavors... (suggestions?)
- going to stay true to the tea party theme for reception, FINGER FOODS!!! (suggestions??) Im thinkin pigs in a blanket, scones, (draw a blank after that)

- FI is puerto rican, so i was reading on a site that it is "mandatory" that there be a doll in likeness of the bride on main table... (im just that twisted)... BRIDE OF CHUCKY!! FI laughed at me told me i was crazy.. (duh!)

easy way to make a cupcake tower is to get the cardboard rounds that go under cakes and clear plasic dixie cups and decorate the rounds with fabric and ribon and glue the cups upside down in the center top of the round and cover the glue with ribon (can also put fun things inside of the cups like bottles that say drink me or something like that. and then stak a few of these on top of eachother, and get different sizes too. another thing you could do is mis matched plates and tea cups in the same idea.

Sounds great!  My advice: Coffee filter roses take a LONG time, so don't delay on those!  They'd be neat white with bits of red painted on after they were dry!

For food you could do some fruit, little sandwiches and other baked goods-bread like bread and butterflies! ok maybe not...  Place cards around the food saying eat me, depending on what you're doing for drinks put 'drink me' tags on them.  Playing cards for seating or just decorations.  I like the 'painting the roses red' idea too Smiley  Good luck!!
