- Wedding: March 2002
So bees, i could NOT sleep last night because for some reason i started thinking “220 days left. i feel really on top of things! vendors all booked. venues booked. save the dates underway. invitations underway. the only thing that seems to be left is favors and decor… shoot. table linens. what do i want” and that thought proceeded to the next and the next.
with that said, i need your help! goin for somewhat of a romance shabby chic laid back theme. i dont want anything stuffy. i want everyone to feel relaxed and comfortable. colors are champagnes, golds, blush pinks and navy. i for the LIFE of me cant put things together and dont know how its all supposed to look once it does come together!
my dress (bought) & groom wants to wear tan suit with navy tie.
bridesmaids (bought in same color, 3 diff styles) groomsmen in navy suits with the pink tie
so you can see – our reception venue is 9000+sq feet of cream colored marble openess. THATS where my issue comes in. we had originally been thinking of ivory linens, with navy napkins and pinks to use as centerpieces.
one of our centerpieces that we really wanted (picked this florist specifically for these) were the ostrich feathers. not for every table, but for some of them. ours would be ivory feathers with pink lighting inside of the vase/tube.
and i also fell in LOVE with these teacup candles for centerpieces. Mother-In-Law has 12 sets, so that could occupy at least 12 of our tables.
are all of these light pastel colored things going to look washed out with such a huge cream colored space?! im also hoping that having a photobooth, a dessert table, and a few vintage things on display such a window shutter with pictures & flowers, hopefully an older looking table with our suitcase & birdcage for cards etc will help break it up a little. even though all of our flowers are full plush romantic blooms in shades of ivories and pinks.
because then i saw this. and loved the navy there too. these would have to be purchased outside of our cater & venue because neither have navy linens.. but does it look okay? does it fit?! oye!
if you have ANY ANY ANY pictures, thoughts, or suggestions – i am so ready to hear them! how AWFUL was it to stay up tossing and turning about which linens and how to decorate tables. LOL!
thank you bees 🙂
