Some background info: by the time our wedding arrives (10.12.2012) my Fiance and I will have been together nearly 14 years. We’re been nudged by his family for years to get married. I’m 46 and he’s 40, so neither one of us are spring chickens although we are aging fairly gracefully. LOL.
Our colors are chocolate and navy, with touches of champagne and gold. White linens with navy runners. (Wedding party in browns.) Navy uplighting. I have 100’s of milk glass vases and urns. I am picturing white, off-white, and pale pink (?) flowers with splashes of bright green. Multiple vases on each table.
I have been contemplating two themes:
- It’s Never Too Late For Happily Ever After
My dress is an A-line Reem Acra. Kind of Cinderella-y. We’re having a mid-October wedding. I really don’t care to do Fall colors, but white and blue pumpkins are rather cool.
I love this pumpking coach and can picture it next to the card box or on the cake table or some place like that.
I already have a banner that says, “It’s Never Too Late for Happily Ever After.” – Just not sure I want to use it.
In addition to the milk glass vases and urns on each table, having either a pocket watches or vintage bedside table clocks, or maybe clock parts – kind of steampunk-ish. Pocket watches could hang from vase or from an ornament display stand.
If I went this route, then I could do the kissing balls/pomanders like the picture below.
- Combine both ideas: Cinderella definitely had a time issue after all. Pumpkin coach + clocks + banner or other item with “It’s Never Too Late for Happily Ever After”.
So, what do you think? Insane? Flows? One better than the other? Scratch both ideas?
Thanks In Advance

I like the first theme better. I just dont like the way “its about time” sounds but that is just me.

Thanks for the feedback. FYI: the “It’s About Time” is in no way a slam against the groom; he’s been asking me for years to get married. LOL. And everyone that knows us well, knows that I’ve been the resistant one.

The happily ever after theme is PERFECT- The dress style, the time frame…..
You should have a poll on this thread

LOL, thanks for the feedback ladies. @ndChanceNancy, I took your advice and added a poll.

One other thought I’ve had is to make small white mice to add to the Cinderella theme. I figured I could probably make something like this (minus the snowglobe) and people would still get the connection (even if the Disney mice weren’t white):

Drool*** love it!
What a neat idea, I think it will be really sweet 🙂

I definitely think you can combine both ideas and both decor ideas.

I prefer the time theme. The first theme, with “Its Never Too Late” makes it sound like you guys haven’t had a happy relationship or you had to get married or something just forced. I think the time theme is fun and more appropriate to your situation!

I like the “It’s Never Too Late for a Happily Ever After” with elements of both themes. LOVE that pumpkin coach, OMG will have to show that to Darling Husband…we SO would have used that in our Oct. 2011 wedding! Ha! 🙂 Love the steampunk touches. I just dislike the “It’s About Time” *title* only because of its negative connotations; it strikes me more as a complaint rather than a celebratory statement. Congratulations and happy planning!
