@misscupcake2012:  well, what type of wedding are you having? I would say my wedding is more of your classic type of wedding. It’s at a large banquet hall. Im doing a lot of traditional type decor. Im not sure if I want an actual “theme.” I think I just want it to look pretty….using bright colors since it will be summer…I have huge centerpieces…I told my florist I want the room to look kinda tropical/rainforest-y.

To add….my ballroom’s chandeliers look almost blingy so Im getting rhinestone table number frames and there are crystals hanging from the cetnerpiece candelabras. Our centerpieces have roses, hydrangea, hanging amaranthus, birds of paradise, gerbera daisies and these bamboo looking shoots at the top. For the ceremony space we are doing a lot of tall cylinder vases with floating candles and strings of orchids

@misscupcake2012:  I get a lot of ideas from here. Also, some of the brides on here with the large budgets have had what I consider to be traditional ideas. Most people in NJ have a traditional type wedding so I look at local photographers’ blogs for ideas. I also look at my venue’s facebook to see what others have done in that same space.

ETA: the apples are our favors

@misscupcake2012:  If you go on Pinterest you can type in anything and find great ideas. I also like style me pretty and, like I said, photographers’ blogs.

We’re doing an elegant, classic reception at a historic manor which I understand is the trend for 2014. You’ll find some Pinteresting examples if you Google “Gatsby wedding,” “1920’s wedding,” and “Downton Abbey inspired wedding.” Not fussy, just simple and timeless.

@misscupcake2012:  Agreed! “Art deco wedding” is another useful search term. Best wishes as you begin formulating your theme!

@misscupcake2012:  we are having an elegant wedding, no theme, just upscale, actually the theme can be “upscale on a cash diet” i am trying to get the most expensive look on the lowest budget possible..hahah. fingers crossed!

colours reb black and white…and no i will not do damask! 

I actually purchased all my own tall vases form the dollar store and http://www.thevaseplace.com. still trying to figure out the flower details….since this is “upscale on a cash diet” and I know upscale weddings have BIG DRAMATIC centerpeices I figures doing BIG DRAMATIC flowers of baby’s breath or some other lower cost flower will give me the big effect on a smaller budget…

I will not be buying any vintage props…or woodsy decor. Although I must say my venue…very very vintage (literally)…built around 1840/1850 converted factory to ballroom restaurant/boutique hotel….and my dress is lace…but I was going more for the regal look her (princess kate and grace…sorta vintage..but not in a shabby way..haha).

I’m having a modern-polka dot theme wedding. Colors are kelly green and canary yellow (spring wedding). Polka dot ribbon on the bridesmaid flowers. I’m getting custom painted polka dot shoes. Flowers are just a mix of green, yellow, and white blooms. That’s my actual tablecloths I’m using and the cake inspired mine.

@AquaRhapsody87:  This is one of the best ideas for a theme I have come across! I love the look of polka dots.
