I am in the linens stages right now. Luckily it's a pretty casual thing but I have been going to Salvation Army (no other good resale shops around here) every day or two to buy white sheets. My plan is to get some fabric paint and do solid stripes on the bottom of the tablecloth. I'm going to post a pic and soon as I pick a color for the stripe!

My Shop I am also looking for some personal swaps. Check my profile for more info! My

Hi everyone!  I'm getting married on May 21 and I'm doing a Fallout (video game) themed wedding.

Dress- found a dress on clearance at Torrid with a retro 50's look.  I want to make my own birdcage wedding veil.  I'm in the looking-at-tutorials-on-the-internet stage.

Decorations/centerpieces: need more red bottle caps.  I also need to get a 6 pack of Coke in glass bottles because my centerpieces are going to be empty bottles with Nuka Cola labels and baby's breath in them.

Favors- found a template on Deviantart for a Fancy Lad snack cake box so I'll need to print those out and construct them.

Bouquets- found the flowers at Hobby Lobby, just need to put together the bouquets.

Food- I will probably make the food since it'll be a small wedding.  I'm researching classic 1950's food.

I know this thread is pretty quiet, but I'll post anyway. My wedding-to-be is on October 21, 2017.  It's going to be an Oktoberfest and craft beer themed wedding! We both are keen craft beer drinkers (and craft beer bloggers), we love themed parties, and I'm of German background, so it works for us. Plus, the original Oktoberfest was a party put on for a royal wedding. We hope our guests will have a blast.

We've already got a venue, a local German club, with food to be made by the Ladies Auxiliary, and a band, which is a wedding cover band who also does Oktoberfest hits, and will play in lederhosen.

The venue at a Christmas bazaar:

The DIY List:
- colourful fabric or paper bunting for hanging (if the Germania Club doesn't already have some nice ones - we're going to their Oktoberfest this year to scope it out!)
- "Wilkommen" sign - cut-out paper letters
- chalkboard signs in frames - a Bar one, a seating chart one, and... another one? (I have 3 frames)
- table numbers (written out numbers in German, on... something)
- brown beer bottle, growler, and flower centrepieces
- bouquets & boutonnieres (weekend of)

- pick colours! Something like sage green, maroon, gold,... but where will my hoped-for purple jewellery fit in?
- figure out how to incorporate steins
- figure out whether to make a guestbook of some sort
- plan invitation and save-the-date (if using?) layout for my graphic designer sister to create awesome paper goods

So sad to see Craftster go!
