Hello all! I’m new to the group and am writing for HELP!! I am trying to decide on a color scheme/and incorporate a theme, but am having a horrible time.
I am a fall girl….warm colors, cool breezes, etc. I like the simple chic looks. I really like the purple, green, orange look…but I am trying to mix in the succulents that I love so much into the mix (for favors and accents with the centerpieces)
To add into this mix, my fiance is a pilot and it was a huge part of our meeting/dating experience, so we want to incorporate aviation. I was thinking of having some small paper airplanes on wire coming out of the centerpieces (like their flying) The tables would be named after airports like “ORD” for Chicago, etc for numbering purposes. And that our save the dates and invites might be boarding passes, etc, but that is to come.
some examples…minus the succulents in these photos…that’s what I want to incorp.
I am looking for ANY help with ideas, colors etc. 🙂

My husband is a pilot, too, and while we didn’t do an aviation theme, we included planes just a bit — most notably for our “guestbook,” which was a 4′ wooden propeller that guests signed with metallic sharpies. Not sure if that’s your taste, but it looks AWESOME, and will be an awesome piece of art to hang in our home forever. 🙂
I like the idea of incorporating planes/aviation into your paper stuff as well — we did it with our Save-The-Date Cards and thank yous, and it was really cute.

I think fall colors and aviation will work well together. There are some great ideas on Pinterest:
This wedding used succulents and aviation:

We were like jennicole01 as well. Aviation wasn’t part of our theme (modern, rustic, mountain, winter wedding) but we did incorporate it a bit.
We used an airplane graphic on our save the dates and invitations.
Our favours (for the men) were aviation (pictures that Barry took while flying and of his plane at the time) themed bubble magnets.
We made sure to get a “blue steele” type of wedding photo in aviators:
Our grande entrance was to the Top Gun Theme song. We had made paper airplanes for people to send flying at us while we were being “marshalled” in from the patio:
People really loved the grande entrance as we had 19 pilots there. We made sure to get a group shot of them all in the photobooth:
My husband didn’t want the theme to focus on aviation but I made sure to add touches here and there. Overall I think it worked well.
