The biggest thing that I’ve had an issue with is our centerpieces. I wanted something like this
But the Fiance wants something like this http://media-cache-ec8.pinterest.com/upload/8866530486712356_Xk5Xt1Er.jpg
I’m leaning more towards what the fiance likes A) because he really hasn’t given his input to many things. and B) it’s kinda cool, won’t lie.
But as for classy I think the lamps would be nicer… I’d just have to figure out how to do table numbers with both as well.
For the lamps we could print the numbers onto the Vellum and on the buckets (whatever buckets we choose) we could attach it with ribbon or something.

Hmmm…While I think you should definately take advantage of Fiance wanting to play a role in the planning, I would vote against his choice IF you are having a formal affair. If it is more low key, the go for it!

Well, it’s a little mixed. Lets just say there’s glowsticks everywhere. We have a captain america grooms cake. and I’ll have an led in the bottom of my dress, he has led shoe laces. But we have 15 tables and about 120 people coming.

Could you do the buckets, but put a bottle of wine in each, and then put the wine-glass-votives around it (minus the lampshades, which mute the light of the candle)? The beer bottles could still look nice if the bucket is painted. There was a cool idea in a magazine recently of galvanized buckets painted and monogrammed, with ribbons tied to the handles. With a bottle of wine, and the votives around it, that could look nice and combine both ideas.
Here’s the bucket I saw:
plus a few others I found while searching for it:

I found these. and thought with either these or clear ones we could place some submersible led lights and then ribbons in our colors around it. or something.

I never really thought of a bucket of beers as a centerpiece. I would do the lamp centerpiece and do a large galvanized tub of beers on a side table.

It sounds like you are having a very fun and uniquely-you type of wedding. I would go with the buckets and add your own personalized feminine touch. 🙂

Do the LED buckets. It will match and you seem to have a fun theme that is making you guys happy.
FYI: I voted on the lamps before I read more about your decorations and saw the LED ones.

I like the buckets better 🙂 They look great and they will be unique. Plus if your Fiance hasn’t had any input yet would you rather compromise here or somewhere else that your heart is truly attached to
