1  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / I'm new at this whole "planning a wedding" thing on: April 11, 2007 01:29:30 PM
I want cool, different invites. I am not a designer, but I have my designer-friend's help. Cool mo de.

Fast forward to me searching on the net. I find awesome paper and designs at mygatsby.com, but they cost a fortune... until i realize, you can buy the paper, buy the cards and envelopes in the colors you want... and buy everything blank

Awesome. Paper, check. Design, check...

So, how the heck do I actually print everything?Huh Huh

Everyone- so many great ideas!

I have been super frazzled at work trying to get work things done.... grrr....

I am going to look at all of these tonight!

LOVE the ideas!

I've gotten some ideas....

Naming tables after bands
Records for under centerpieces
Menu- instead of appetizer, dinner..."sound check" "opening gig" "Dinnerpalooza"
Guitar brooches for bouquets
Guitar picks on tables for decoration

Aggh! I need more!

If only this "work" thing wouldn't interfere with my brainstorming about my wedding...

And I know there are some of you out there with me on this.

How do you have a theme, without being to "themey".

Our wedding is going to be gorgeous, in this lovely ballroom... very classy joint...

We kind of introduced this "Rock n Roll" theme to the wedding with our STDs

But now, I am stuck. Where do I go with the Rock and Roll theme?

We were thinking about invites in the shape of records... and that is going to cost us a fortune (and I cannot DIY 200 invites)... then invites in the shape/fashion of concert tickets ...

place cards like old juke box labels...

But what about favors/cake topper? Welcome baskets...toiletry basket, card basket...

I think the idea of it is all awesome... then...

And then... the mind changes gears..

We are getting married on the "Sweetest Day" October 20th.. and I think the candy theme is so much cuter...

Can I just switch gears from the one we introduced early on... to the one we go with?

ARGH! Shocked
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / I want Candy! ( a candy- themed wedding reception, that is!) on: January 07, 2007 12:35:11 PM
I am meeting with a florist ( yikes) next week and want some ideas to bring but work has me quite brain dead.

We are getting married n 10/20/07- it is on a tiny holiday called "The Sweetest Day" so we were going to play on the sweets, candy kind of theme throughout the reception.

The reception place itself is pretty formal, but I am thinking centerpieces, place cards, wedding cake- all candy-themed. I've thought about lollipop stands, gumball machines filled with MMs or conversation hearts.

Thoughts? I am a blank slate ( literally ) and open to any kind of crafty , creative ideas!

wedding planning exhausts me Sad

You should totally check out IKEA... they always have really cool "modern-y" things...

It sounds like your room would be cool with a Zen/Asian thing going on... with all the black and red... Sewing some throw pillows would be really easy for your bed... but what about making some big - sitting pillows you could put on the floor? That , with a small tablee ( IKEA coffee tables are cheap!) would make a great sitting area!

You can totally paint the bed. if I were you, since the fram is metal and probably has a lot of little spaces everywhere, I would go and get some spray paint. Take it outside and go to town. If it is a dark blue, black would be perfect to cover it up.

Houseplants always add a fresh dash of color as well!

Let us know what you decide!

I'm so sorry for your loss....But isn't is wonderful you have those cuties as another reminder of how wonderful your late husband was? And those flowers you never got around to planting? Maybe now would be a good time to do that for him....

Compromising.... it's a good thing...

Really though, your suggestions are perfect. I've convinced him an Asian inspored bedroom would be perfect with our Silk bedding... I already proposed a greenish color for the walls ( like green tea-colored) and damnit, I am getting a dark brown stripe in there <i>somewhere</i>!

I think I might try to photoshop my idea... maybe he'll "see" it better... Cool

you know, i never even thought of that! He grew up in a modern-like designed home, but the decorating is definitely a bit on the traditional side.

I also had a lot of apartments in which I was daring and different when I decorated.... So when I think.. Hmm... purple couch, orange cuurtains and wall art... it's normal... to him, it's probably a little crazy

Thanks for helping me remember he could be coming from a totally different place!
