Pillow mints! They always remind me of Alice. My supermarket is selling these mushrooms stakes that you're supposed to put in your yard---they look pretty psychadelic. They're expensive but maybe you could create something similar if you have the time. It looks like clay painted weird and then sealed. I think they would make cute centerpieces sticking out of some flowers. Somebody has a thread going about how to make a headboard that lights up---I think little boxes like this would look really neat set here and there (I'll try and find the thread, just gimmie a sec). I'm also picturing giant flowers, maybe out of tulle and then spraypainted. Speaking of spray painting, what about white roses (fake of course) dipped in red paint for favors? Go to thrift shops and pick up any weird tea cups you can find----hmmm maybe this would be a better favor. You could paint the date and your names on the bottom, so you could still serve people champagne in them. Where are you getting married? And when? If you could pull it off it would be neat to make a giant paper mache "rabbit hole" roughly the shape of an arbor that you could get married in front of. Glue moss all over it with some fake flowers. I'm still thinking... Smiley I have a fever right now so if some of these ideas are totally whack I'm sorry.

What an awesome theme!

I certainly hope you wear an alice wedding dress!

boy.. it'd be neat to do your cake up in pink and have black text that says.. "EAT ME"

and all the glasses to say "Drink me"

or have a tea party maybe

The earth, stained with the blood of a thousand dying soldiers, weeps as she welcomes them home.

I forgot, I actually made an Alice In Wonderland cake for someone. Just a sheet cake, but I think it turned out great Smiley When I was a cake decortator I played around a lot and experimented when no one was looking. One time someone ordered a cake and all they specified was "Use your imagination." I cut a cake into many triangles, squares, etc and frosted each piece and airbrushed them two colors (all different, but each had two colors). Then I took a spatula and lightly smeared the colors around. It turned out really cool. Maybe you could get a decorator to make a little one for you to try. Make sure to pick colors that would blend well---red and blue gives streaks of purple, red and yellow gives streaks of orange (and looks like fire!). The frosting wont be perfectly flat, it has little peaks all over. And just from experience I'd suggest using buttercream icing. Whip cream doesn't hold up that well, and buttercream makes for more vibrant colors.

wow do u have pics of the cake it sounds amazing..  i was thinking of having the bridemaids in alice type dresses cause i really want a princess type dress.

No, unfortunately I don't have any pics, but if you go to a supermarket bakery their cheapest cake is about $4 (if you wanna try it out cheaply)---plus if something like this works for you it'll be a lot cheaper in the end. The difference between a "wedding cake" and a "cake" is a couple of zeros and that's about it Smiley

In my local craft store I found a cake airbrushing kit and I stood there and wondered why... (mostly because there were teenagers on the packaging.) But now I know why patriautism.

I love the tea cup idea as favors. Little bottles of champane (Drink Me) and little boxes with Jordon Almonds in them (Eat Me).

If your presiding official didn't mind you could ask them to dress up too! (The Mad Hatter or the King Of Hearts. Queen of Hearts if it's a woman.) I only sugjest this because I know several people who are ordained to preform weddings and they would totally deck out for it.

Brightest Blessings to you and yours.

Really?? I "need" a cake airbrushing kit. You can do so many cool things with one! I used to do sculptures and stuff, make a beach scene with waves crashing, stuff like that. Dang. So, I guess you could make your own cake! I did for my wedding and I would highly reccomend doing it in advance Smiley Maybe even drop the money and buy the cakes from a bakery uniced, and then buy a bucket of buttercream and go to town! It would still be cheaper than a wedding cake and you wouldn't have the problems I did.

If you're having a ring bearer he could be the white rabbit. Little ears, and a cute red waitcoat with a tail and you could put the rings in a fancy pocket watch  instead of a pillow.

Also the place cards at the tables could be all playing cards with special people, like your parents, with the face cards with their faces decopaged on.

Make a sign by the punch bowl or the cake that reads "needs more pepper!"

Vampires may be very sexy. Distraction by a sexy vampire may interfere with proper use of Vampire Detector. Vampire Detector is not responsible for sexy vampires.

Awesome theme!! Grin

One idea my fiance had, which would work out REALLY well for your theme, is to serve drinks in teapots and teacups.  We were thinkning sangria, but then realized it might be hard to get the fruit out, so it may end up just being red wine.

If you can get your hand on some decorative hookahs that would be RAD, especially those ones that have multiple hoses.  Serve up some shisha, and you're party's bound to be a hit!!  (I like mint or apple.)  You can find hookahs on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/1-HOSE-LEBANESE-HOOKAH-SHISHA-AWESOME_W0QQitemZ5432236278QQcategoryZ596QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem, though of course, the really beautiful ones are quite expensive.
