- Wedding: September 2011
Ok, so I am in some serious (& fast) need of some decorating advice and I knew this is exactly where I needed to come to get it! So for some background on why there is such desperation .. My Fiance and I got engaged in November of 2009. Because we were both in school at the time we weren’t planning on jumping the gun on wedding planning. However now that we have been engaged for some time and Fiance has started his career we have suddenly begun to feel restless (we are ready, already!) So a whole hmm.. maybe six weeks ago we decided to just go for it and plan a wedding for THIS September 3rd. Originally we were planning a casual but nice backyard wedding at my mother’s house with banquet tables, white linens, and a variety of colored flowers picked from family members gardens. However, my mother’s home is in the country and everyone was planning on driving approximately 45 minutes to the “after party” at a local casino/hotel. After a lot of thinking and phone calls and running around (!) we decided at the very last minute to book the initial “after party” hotel for the whole wedding itself. Great for guests that can drink and don’t have to worry about driving.. not so great when we met the RED BANQUET CHAIRS and patterned carpet that we now have to decorate around. Talk about a change from my diy “homey” wedding I had been planning.
SO the room will have 11 round tables with white linens and the RED CHAIRS. I am looking for some budget friendly centerpiece ideas that will look nice and flow with the red chairs. I was thinking about white lillies but I am worried that the white on white will be too .. well white for the whole room. My biggest problem is that I cant seem to shake the idea of these RED CHAIRS .. HELP ME BEES!
