MY FH and I are getting married on June 25. 2011 and I was thinking of doing a wedding that was very much like the secret garden. My venue is a large ballroom that is enclosed with a black fence I was going to weave fake flowers and heart garland into it and with the help of my horticulture friends ( I’m in an ag sorority at NDSU) place flowers all over the place. I have some old benches and my FH mom is very into the thift store vintage finds. Any ideas on what we could do for center pieces and decor. MY dress is very antique looking. My FH is very into the steampunk thing so I wanted to incoporate brass and I bought him a steampunk pocketwatch. Can anyone help?

I like your theme how about something like this?

Oooh, love it! You should incorporate skelton keys into somehow to bring in the whole “secret” part. I know they didn’t really have a key in the book, but I think it will come off more “garden” than “secret garden” if you don’t do something to angle it that way :).

i’ve always loved that book. i like jo.lee’s idea about skeleton keys to convey the “secret” part, plus i love the look of them.

vintage or vintage looking birdcages:
a swing in the corner-make it too high for anyone to try to actually use it:
use skeleton keys with your table numbers:

Love this idea. I immedaitely thought of flowering teas that can be served. They “bloom” as they rehydrate. Very magical.

I love the idea of using the lanterns and the old wood boxes with flowers in them! Also you could do your initials on the chairs or doors! The flowers in these pic don’t match your theme much but the lanterns and candles are neat ideas. Also putting lights or something from the ceiling maybe?
