- Wedding: May 2011
Our wedding is quickly approaching on May 28…we are within two months and now it is down to the details, details, details!
Our wedding is outdoors and the reception is in a large barn (finished of course, for events). Our theme is very natural and rustic. Our centerpieces are a mix of flowers (Gerber Daisies, peonies, ranaculus, spider mums), wheatgress, trees (yes, actual 6 foot trees!), curly willow, rocks, candles, etc. We’re using chalkboardsYou get the idea.
As such, I’m not really wanting to use glass vases — I want wooden trays, wooden boxes, galavanized pails, birch, etc. Anything but glass 🙂 has anyone found anything along these lines that are reasonably priced?
Most importantly we are looking for trays to grow the wheatgress in. We’re using wheatgrass for the escort cards and in some centerpieces, so I would want square trays for the tables and a couple long ones for the wheatgrass.
Lastly, we are also looking for chalkboards galore! For signage to the wedding, the bar menu, the buffet, for table numbers. We are evening doing a photo guest book, where each guest writes a message on a chalk board, holds it up and gets a Polaroid picture taken. We will take all of the polaroids to frame and put up in our home. 🙂
Here are a few inspirational pictures:
