hey bees! have you thought of any cute ideas for the ceremony or reception that you can’t wait to do?
my Fiance and I were brain storming… and we want to incorporate our cultures somehow into the reception. I’m Polish, so I might ask my artistic cousin to paint a mural of where my family is from (the valleys of the mountains in Southern Poland)… and use that as a backdrop for our photobooth. I think it would be special.
We also considered having a shake station instead of an ice cream station or chocolate fountain. Wouldn’t it be so cute to serve small shakes in vintage glasses and big straws? (we’re going with the vintage theme…) Not sure how the logistics would work though…
I think it’s all about the small, special touches. What are some of the special things you’re planning on your day?

Im most excited about the MARRIED part lol!!
Besides that, we’re hoping to have a dessert bar (for my dessert loving self), a mashed potato bar and macaroni and cheese bar (for SO). We really just want in to be an “US” wedding, something that is just our personalities!

I am most excited about our clothes and theme! We have decided to have the wedding we want and decided we don’t really care what everyone else thinks. So we are going to wear vintage inspired clothes and have a totally whimsical wedding with vintage/nature/quirky elements. It is going to be soooo fun!
I am totally psyched about my tin punched laterns and mismatched china and crotched doilies and quirky birds. (They make me so happy .)

Mr.ND and I will write letters to one another to open the day of the wedding (together, but before we see one another, sort of like those ‘hands around the corner pictures). After that we’ll do our first look (once I’ve re-done my makeup from crying, lol!). I can’t wait to give him a letter all about how excited I am to be his wife, have his kids, and grow old together, with a million crazy adventures in between 🙂
We’ll also write a letter to seal away for a year to read on our 1 year anniversary. It’ll be a fun reminder of that ‘newlywed buzz.’

@indibee: I love the letter idea…I think we’ll do that too!
I’m excited about the flowers we are draping from the two middle chandeliers in the ballroom. Can’t wait to see it when we walk in!
This will be enjoyed after the wedding, but instead of video I am having the wedding recorded on super 8 black and white film for a really old, antique look that I will edit myself.

Definitely my groom, and our ceremony. I can’t wait to stand there with him and make those promises! Also, I wrote it all, so it is very emotional to us ( but not personal so the audience is groaning). Hope my mascara holds up.
