take me out to the ballgame; take me out to the park; buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks; i dont care if i ever get back

he came up with the idea of naming the differnt dinner tables after baseball parks and he’s in charge of finding pictures of them for the tables…  he’s also in charge of our favors – peanuts and cracker jacks.

im surprising him with a mini-replica of yankees stadium, but true to my LA Dodgers, im wearing LA Dodgers undies for my something blue (sorry i just had to overshare that little deet!)

  • Wedding: July 2005

From my 2005 wedding…

Fun, Christmas in July (very very very subtle) and Elegant BBQ. Everyone got the fun and the elegant BBQ impression immediately.

We have a couple of themes!

1) Birds and stars – to go with the lyrics to ‘our song,’ "Close to You"

 Why do birds/suddenly appear/everytime/you are near… and Why do stars/fall from the sky/everytime/you walk by…

This theme is carried out in our STDs, invitations, labels on favors, OOT bags, etc. 

2) Science-y, since we are both recently graduated PhD students. Fiance does basic science, so we brought that into the wedding in our decor – our ceremony aisle decorations are flowers in test tubes rigged up with gold wire and satin ribbon; our centerpieces use chemlab beakers as vases, and candle containers. The best thing about it is that the beakers just look like regular cylindrical vases until you look closely, so it’s fairly subtle. All DIY – I negotiated bulk pricing with a lab glassware company I found on ebay.

Casual southern elegance (if there is such a thing). My MAIN color is orange. My accent colors are fuschia and bronze (similar to the Hello Lucky ad over there to the left of the WeddingBee page)….

Oh wow, I love the "take me out to the ballgame" theme! We have recurring butterflies and trees…sort of inspired by a love song called "The Butterfly and the Tree" originally by From Good Homes and now played by Railroad Earth. We’re music geeks so we love that little connection. Also, our wedding is in a library, so we’re planning to name our tables after favorite books or maybe favorite quotations…

Ours is "squares" and not because we are "square" LOL.

Invites, favors, cake, all square.

The colors are Pink and Bling 🙂 I’m adding Bling to everything I can, and accenting the color pink with black and white to keep it real "manyly still" although since none of the guys are wearing pink – FI could care less about pnk being the theme color.

We were going to use squares as a shape for a lot of things too, like Sweeney – square cake tiers, square (cube, actually) centrepiece vases, square invites (well rectangular, anyway.)  The other theme was going to be flowers and birds.  There was going to be a floral/bird motif on all the stationery (invites, RSVP cards, table names, escort cards, menus etc).  I fell in love with Mrs. Gummibear’s favors – a little bird nest filled with chocolate eggs, so I was going to do that for favors.  I was going to name tables with a different flower name or bird name (hadn’t decided yet).  I was going to put a flower in my hair.  All the decorations were going to be flowers.  I thought it worked well with the venue because the ceremony was going to be outdoors in a garden so I just sort of went with a garden party theme.  Hope this helps in some way!

GAUDIOR — ME TOO!  I call mine "Casual Elegance" the anti-theme.  Hydrangeas and mason jars and peaches and lots of white, oh my.  Let’s trade ideas.

Butterflies! I was half kindding when I mentioned it to my fiance, thinking he would think it was girly, but he LOVED the idea. He launched into a talk about how butterflies symbolize new life, renewal and growth. It was pretty awesome. So, that’s what we are going to do and I am so happy about it! 🙂
