1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Love your wedding? Then show off your photos here! on: August 18, 2007 06:03:56 AM
Here's a few from my wedding on August 3rd

In the gazebo where we were married

With our bridesmaids and groomsmen. Yeah I had 6 and he had 3. I had my bridesmaids hold fans instead of bouquets.

Kissing under the flower ball I made.. I used flowers from Michaels and spent way too much on it. You can kind of see how my dress criss-crosses in the back. I love it!

Cutting our awesome cake a friend of the family made. It had white chocolate filling. It was so good!

Thank you for the suggestions.
I think I will Simply go with
"Spread the love" a little cheesy but I think it's cute. Smiley

So we are making jam for favors. I'm going to order labels but I can't think of something cute to put on them. Any ideas more than just our names or the date?  Huh

Thanks for the advice everyone! I hadn't thought of extra seating but that's a great idea.

Mirrors is a good idea too.. the hotel has some we can use so I'll see if those will work.

The tables will be round and seat 8.  I'm not planning on having place cards.. I want the seating to be open. (but I've been known to change my mind)  The table cloths will just be white and I'm not planning on having a runner. (at least at the moment)

So, basically I have no idea what I'm doing with the tables!
I think I am going to pick up some stones and candles and try it out. I'll let you know how it looks.

Hi all,
still working on wedding planning. I've been thinking about what to do on the tables.
What do you think of this pic? I found it on the knot specialty bios

I'm going to sprinkle some orchid buds around there (they hold up really well without water).  The picture looks like maybe 8 votives. What do you think of that amount?

Do you think it will look okay even though there's not one big focal point on the table?
I'm having a hard time picturing this. I may need to try it out.

Okay so I sort of decided on a color scheme... I found this website:

They ship dresses in 6 weeks. I'm pretty sure I'm choosing the color baby blue in the georgette fabric. They are sending me swatches of material.  The bridesmaids can choose their own style of dress and the price is fairly reasonable.

I'm going to craft a pomander to hang from the gazebo with the help of the tute I've seen on here. something like this:

I'll do some white flowers, but I also might have pink peonies if I can afford them. I met an amazing florist whose working with my budget. And peonies are my absolute dream flower. (although I do agree my dress would look great with calla lillies)

That's all the I have so far... I gotta get some basics out of the way and I'll start posting in the craft-along.
Thanks all your help!

I used to look at that knot link all the time... but now when you click on the individual links they don't work, since they changed the format of the site.  It's so sad!

 I do like red to match the berries and I love the idea of a red pomander hanging. I think that will be okay with the site as long as it's just tied up. I will maybe use red rose petals to make my "aisle." I like the idea of calla lillies for bouquets too!

I thought of possible floating gardenias for centerpieces (http://www.freshroses.com/gard.html) They are beautiful and smell wonderful. Not sure if the price is worth it or not.

 But I still don't know what to do for bridesmaid dresses.. I only have 3 months and for many places it's too late to order!

Thanks for the great ideas everyone!
I think I'm going to keep the seating minimal. I really like the bench idea. I might take that and run with it...

 maybe I could get FH or someone to make benches and I could paint them pretty or decorate them somehow.
