  • poll: How'd it look?

    It'd look whimsical and lovely

    It'd look too childish

    It could be nice but only pick certain parts.

    I think you nailed it.  The venue goes very well.  Everything is airy, light, and playful.  And anyways, why not embrace that childhood feel?  You could do cupcakes and have board games or something.  Or a piñata haha.  On the other hand, if you want strictly whimsical and romantic, I think this is more in the direction of playful and clean.  To go more romantic I think it needs something… Can’t quite put my finger on it.  Like flowers or nice framed pics, something to make it more about romance.  I think right now it looks more celebration than romance (as in more birthday party than marriage).  Don’t get me wrong, I think it looks great, just commenting based on the adjectives you used. 🙂

    Just stopping by to say love, love, love! We were thinking about using the giant round balloons (bought some to see what the effect was) in our decor as well (we’re also using mason jars). We had been thinking about putting them on the ceiling as a substitute for paper lanterns, but your post gave me the inspiration to use them to showcase the table numbers above the tables. I hadn’t even thought of that – I guess that’s what fellow bees are for!

    Also, FH and I have been perusing the pinwheel etsy shops you linked – don’t know if you have flower girls or not, but how cute would something like this be for them?

    I really love all the different details you plan on using and I think the colours will work really well together. But like brocaknows I think you just need to add maybe one more element to keep it romantic and elegant. Maybe in the paper stuff like your invitations and so on? Regardless I would love to see your ideas for that.

    oh and I think if you use a pretty ribbon on the balloons for your centerpieces the ends could be tucked into the books so they look like bookmarks, but thats just a suggestion.

    I can’t wait to see this all come together!

    I agree with others…think it will be phenomonal! My favorite part is re-using the mailbox in your first home.

    You are doing an amazing job! Your wedding will be all that you want it to be.

    For the romance ingrediant have you thought of placing pictures around the room in similar frames?

    Pics of you and your Fiance, pictures of your parents and grandparents?


    Or, do something like this?

    I think it’s very nice everything you are going with.  It’s fun, youthful and sweet.

    Maybe I’m biased because Mr Q and I both love UP, but I think this seems super sweet and whimsical.  I love the idea of doing a mailbox for your cardbox – do you think you’ll be able to actually use it for mail at your home in the future, too?  (That’d just make me smile to see it every day.)
