- Wedding: July 2013
I really need some advice as I’m a bit stuck on an idea I have had for sometime in regards to our wedding reception. If I’m to go ahead with it i need to start organising it now.
I am trying to keep costs down for flowers on the tables and therefore I am trying to incorporate something else within the vase as well as flowers. My idea is that on each table I would have an old or even recent photo of each guest (Whom is sat at that table) with either myself or the groom and as most guests are family members or close friends we do have a collection of photos conatining either myself, the groom or both of us with said family member, friend.
Just to clarify what I mean, there will be a table of university friends of mine and I have many a photo of them so want to include those as part of the flower/table display. So for example when ‘Jackie’ takes her seat she will notice a photo or her and myself together from the night we went out dressed in 80’s clothing. ‘Sophie’ would see a photo of her with both myself and my H2B at last years BBQ in her garden etc etc.
The main reason for this idea is I think it is different, gives a talking point and who doesn’t love looking at old photos? I also think it is a really subtle way of showing to all of our guest why they are there for our special day in the fact that they have been a part of our lives for a long time.
The photos will be placed within the flower display using thin sticks of wood and pegs (so photos can be removed and taken as favours)
However my H2B is unsure of the idea and thinks some guests may not like to see a photo of themselves/ the plus ones would not have a photo as we do not know them (although there are not many plus ones we do not know.)
So I’d like an opinion from others of what you make of this idea, how would you feel as a guest to arrive and see an old photo of your with the bride or groom?
I have attached a first draft I did of he display BUT remember a flourist will be doing it for me and I am by no means any good at floral display so please dont judge the photo as it is just to give further understanding to my idea
