So even though my wedding isnt til 2013 I like to get an early start so I’m not stressing out. So anyway, we’ve decided on our colors quickly after getting engaged. It’s going to be cobalt blue, bright yellow, and silver. Its mainly cobalt blue with yellow and silver accents. So to go with the colors, we want a theme! We were thinking “you are my sunshine” but thats kind of cheesy. We’re getting married in May but most likely not near a beach or water so thats out. Please help us!!

I think your theme should be based off of ya’lls personalities so, for me, it would be hard for me to give advice on what your theme should be since I don’t know you. This might help.. I am a very simple girl and love simple, country chic (i’m really not sure if that describes what I am trying to describe) things. I am not really having a theme..I am just going to incorporate what I like (obviously it has to “go” together). Maybe you should make a list of things you and your FI like and go from there. Maybe you will start to see a common denominator. Hope this helps 🙂

girl I am not doing favors! I am trying to keep everything as simple and “me” as possible. The weddings I have gone to (which aren’t a lot) have silly little favors that I end up just throwing away. I do not think by not having favors anyone will miss them or even think “why do they not have favors?” So I think it is a waste of money to do favors. We are already providing food, cake, and refreshements. If you do want to do favors, maybe you should make it edible. Before I decided on not having favors I thought about baking cookies for everyone. I LOVE to bake and cook, so I thought that would be something personal from me to my guests. Of course if would take some time, but I think it would be relatively cheap and they would definitely not go to waste!

@belle320: do something edible than you don’t need a theme. navy and yellow candy buffet, or perhaps a cupcake or something.

theme? cobalt blue and sunshine? How about “University of Michigan?” 😀
