pglt09:  First of all you look amazing in your dress!

In regards to wanting your Fiance to stand out a bit, what we are doing is Fiance has always desired a navy tux so he will be in navy and the Groomsmen will be wearing classic black tuxedos. Additionally, (we are doing more olive branches as opposed to flowers) the GMs boutonnieres will be simply olive leaves while his will include a flower.

pglt09:  We are going to have olive garlands on the back of the last row for the ceremony then repurposing the garlands to have them adorning the dessert table and card tables for the reception. We are going to have drapping olive bouquets at 3 points down the aisle and the alter space is being created with two small olive trees (getting married at The Citizen Hotel) which Fiance and I will be planting in our yard after. Lots of olive branches for our wedding as it is supposed to have an old Italian feel.

Yes, FI and I are in Sacramento (born and raised).

The garlands can be expensive (about 160 each) but we are trying to do lots of re-purposeing of the ceremony decor – and doing more candles than florals.

This is my inspiration for the bouquets

And this is some inspiration I had for what you are describing of having it drape down the tables:

I simply adore olive branches (I am Italian after all, lol). I just find there to be soemthing so rustic yet classic about them.
