Arrmatie -

I know you said you were going for the futuristic look, but have you thought about *knitting* your corset-top? There are some really gorgeous patterns out there...

I love the ideas you've got going for your wedding!

" Dice as wedding favors. I even got the idea (on another thread) to use wire and wrap it around a die (instead of a marble) and make it into a necklace. To bad my fiance doesnt wear jewelry (it disgusts him, to wear it, not to see me wearing it) but he was a sweetheart and said he would wear his wedding ring always ('cept when we are crafting together, heh)"

For the wedding you could always wire a D10 to his boutennire...or dremel a hole thru the die and slip one of the stems or a fat wire thru it

I went to my old baby-sitter's wedding this fall, with my Mom, and I was so bored.  The whole time, we wished we had brought playing cards.  So at my wedding, the favors are going to be playing cards.  My family are card playing freaks (Sheephead and Rummy), as are a lot of my older family friends, so I know they'll go over well.

As for the objection, what if one of the groomsman chooses that moment to come out of the closet and profess his undying love for the groom?

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.

I don't have any super great ideas for you, but i am excited to see how your wedding turns out. I was really pushing for my wedding date to be 2/29/08 (the next leap day or year or whatever) because i thought it would be great to only have an anniversary every four years and it would be funny. LEAP into love with Sam and ROY! isn't that a great theme, and it could be all space - agey. but whatever,  my guy said weddings aren't supposed to be funny Tongue  i got St. patricks day instead, so it is cool.

If you guys are going to be doing the whole dance thing. like first dance, mother/groom dance. ect. you could do it to really unexpected songs, like gangstas paradise or something just really not slow and romantic. that would be fun.

littleone1098 - We're having games at our wedding, but we've chosen things like Kerplunk, Operation, Battling Tops and Hungry Hungry Hippos that can be played really quickly, but are a lot of fun. My fiance wants Jenga, but I think all the pieces would just end up in food.

If I ever get married again all of the bridal party will be dressed as Trekkie alien super-vixens in pvc and go-go boots.  Big hair and painted skin will be a must as well.

Ha! And I was just about to suggest scavenger hunt! Hey congrats! I too am planning a wedding--my sweetie proposed Christmas Eve.

I'm late to this whole website because I'm planning my wedding (this Saturday!) but I wanted to pipe up and say that we're having a something like a photo scavenger hunt and the folded paper fortune tellers.  The photo thing is just a sheet of paper on every table to go with the disposable camera.   It gives suggestions for picture ideas, because most of the time you end up taking a picture of everybody at the table and maybe a couple of the bride & groom, and then you just set it down and forget about it.  So it has ideas like "take a picture of the B&G holding hands", take a picture of the best dancer", etc.  It's just something to get people inspired to take cool pictures.

The folded fortune teller is one of these

And somebody else mentioned trivia cards on the table, I really wanted Ask It cards, but I ended up not getting them.
