- Wedding: May 2014 - The Cove Lakeside Resort
I was wondering if I could get everyones opinions on my decor so far, I want to make sure i’m heading in the right direction!
We are getting married in the garden of the hotel, and there is a lake in the background as well.
For the “alter” we were thinking of buying two sappling trees (our wedding is in May so they will hopefully have flowers on it) and standing in front of them. Once the ceremony is over we are going to have them moved to the reception room, and eventually through the night they will become gifts to our parents (with some silly mention of as our new family grows so will these trees)…. Does that sound like a good idea?
For the aisle runner: I bought 10, 13 inch, metal flower buckets, and in them I will fill with hydrangeas. I am currently trying to dry a lot of hydrangeas that were on my hyrdangea bush but if they don’t turn out I am buying them in bulk from Costco. They will also be reused around the reception room. They will look something like this:
For the reception:
The table by the enterance will hold the escort card, which will be 3 different sized frames, painted to look old/worn with a fabric background and the cards will be hung on twine with small clothes pins. ( these aren’t done yet so I can’t show a picture, but I have a link to a picture on Pintrest : http://pinterest.com/pin/28006828905605479/ )
The gift table will have a mailbox on a post with our names on it. This is the mailbox:
These are the centerpieces:
They will be on a white table cloth, and I am making napkins (a varity of fabrics) to add color. The birdcage and the garden box will both have flowers in it, and the lantern will have a candle and moss, with flowers in three assorted vases. …. is that enough? do I need something under the center items? I should also add that there are 9 tables, 3 will have birdcages, 3 will have a lantern, and 3 will have the garden box. I am also thinking of renting silver charger plates but not too sure if I should…..
The sweetheart table will have a Mr & Mrs sign, and a vase for my flowers:
I also am having fabric draped from the ceiling, here is a picture from a wedding at my venue, I will be having the same white draping:
So am I doing ok?
