I loooove the idea. Super unique, quirky, and personal. I love that. Off the top of my head, I don’t have any ideas on how to further your theme, but I do recommend heading over to ThinkGeek. Though the stuff there is too expensive to buy for wedding stuff, there may be some fun things you see that inspire some DIY ideas.

As for it being a one-sided theme, I wouldn’t be too worried about that. Our theme is sort of one sided since it is Alice in Wonderland. My FH certainly loves the theme, but it was never something he was passionate about.

If you’re looking to try to make it more 50/50 on the theme, though, I say why stop at chemistry? Why not make it a geek-a-palooza! So incorporate chemistry elements, computer science references, techie stuff, nerd culture references. It could be adorably geek chic, and I don’t think utilising a mish-mash of geekdom would make it look less unified as a theme. Plus, it gives you more wiggle room for incorporating ideas from various aspects of your lives (because usually people who are computer/science geeks are often geeks in other regards, too) which makes it more personal to you both and increases the brainstorming potential.

@Jennlee:  I think that theme would be SO cool, but I may be biased because that’s what my degree is in. Wink

@Jennlee:  As a science dork, I love it!  I think flowers in Ehrlenmeyer flasks look so classy, and your other ideas are really fun.

You could incorporate some sort of chemical equation into your invites – like “Bride + Groom = XXXX” if that’s not to casual for the invite.  (Or make some signs that say things like that at the wedding.)

@Jennlee:  LOVE.IT. This sounds so fun and so *you*. I would just be sure to make it all look “wedding-y” so that it doesn’t feel like a science fair.

@Jennlee:  I went to a wedding in December that had a similar theme. They were both biologist and had met doing a study with turtles. It was held at the science museum here and each table was given a picture the groom had taken during study abroad of animals.The cards even had fun facts on the back. Some of the tables had glasswear: such as beakers, graduated cylinders, and the like. They even used triple beam balances at the sign in table that held beta fish in bowls. It was very cute. Also during their ceremoney the minister spoke of how a relationship is much like a lab experiment. It was all very tasteful and personal. Really let you understand their passion for science and eachother.

I say go for it!!!

I think its cute.  You could incorporate other science/tech stuff so its more of a ‘geek’ theme that fits both of you, rather than just chemistry.

I think it’s adorable, but with neither of you being chemists, I would be a bit puzzled as a guest as to why you chose that as a theme…

@MissNoodles:  Her Fiance runs a lab and teaches Chem. As she stated she’s worried it’ll be one-sided, but I think their guests will understand that it does fit their personalities. I think it’d be really fun.

@Jennlee:  OH ok …gotcha.  When I read that I thought it said that you were both computer programmers.

Ok then, go for it I say!

I may be a bit biased as I am a chemist, but I love it!  I think that including things like this really personalize a wedding. For my wedding, we had a sand ceremony where we used beakers to hold the sand prior to pouring.
