    I love the idea of skylines for people getting married in a big city. It’s pretty magical/romantic looking- a city at night. It’s a great idea! Have you found any skyline views of Kansas City?

    I found these: http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&hs=HKo&q=kansas%20city%20skyline&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wi 

    Take a gander- look at the great images you can just make a line drawing in photoshop or adobe. A graphic designer could just draw the outline of a skyline and put it into your invites :o)

    I love both cities! I definetly choose the skyline idea. What a great way to incorporate where you have been and where you are now.

    i really love the idea of a chandelier invitation!  I think it’s so chic!  Let us know what you decide though!

    I was a Chicago bride-woot!  So I like the skyline, but I think the pom IDEA is good (I don’t love the way the invite looks).  Something with the silhouette of actual spider mums (they were my ma’s fave) would look nice-I like the rest of that first pom invite (just not the graphic), but I’m not partial to letterpress, so…  Good luck!!

    I was going to do the Detroit skyline for ours because we got engaged at the top of the RenCen, but I went instead with a pom style. I’m DIYing my invites though and the poms worked for me because they were an easy stamp to buy/use. Trying to DIY the same skyline w/o a stamp would have driven me crazy.

    What about your colors? Mine are green/blue, so they lend themselves to flowers. But if you have a more masculine scheme (something with gray or black in it) then I would go with the skyline. I like the chandelier idea, but after looking at the venue site, I don’t think it would be recognizable either and a regular chandelier doesn’t look the same.

    I vote skyline because it seems to reflect you and your Fiance best. (Seconded by the poms.)

    PS: I think A LOT of people are doing the whole (beaded) chandelier thing, so if you want trendy..  Colorful paper lanterns on an invite (bold primary-red, blue, yellow or fuschia and turquoise) would look nice too.

    I really like the idea of having the two skylines. I think it would be a nice way of incorporating both cities into your wedding. I don’t really have any help as far as graphic designers, though.

    I think the chandelier could be done, either a line drawing of it, or to use Illustrator and have it live trace a photo of it.  I tried it and it looked alright, but would need some tweaking.  I agree that people wouldn’t really know what it is, but once they get to the venue it would then be recognizable.  It’s basically a chandelier with a material stretched or shrink wrapped to it, so the line drawing could be of the chandelier underneath with a light overlay of what I’ll call the fabric.  Hope this makes sense!!
