Oh my gosh.. this is a great idea. I was actually going to hand out masks at my New Years Eve wedding, however we decided to have an August wedding instead.
I personally think an *option* coul dbe black, white, and red wedding would be totally appropiate- and awesome.
Your barn- beautiful! You could do some many cool things. I’m so jealous. 🙂
I have a few ideas after seeing the barn:
This would be a really fun option- but probably not what you’re looking for: (all of these can be found at http://www.bbjlinens.com)
This may be a better option… but maybe not what you’re looking for:
Again, still not what you may want… but fun
<– this is a lamour, classic.. clean, a bit more expensive… but luxurious with a great body. This also comes in a red.
I think this would be the best option. It has the right texture for the barn… and the red and white roses would POP!
You could do the above linen with red or white napkins.. it would be so wonderful.
2. Did you see the lighting fixtures in the barn? Those round chandelier type things. You could drip strings of red, balck or even clear crystals from then. Personally, I would go with a color so the light reflected off of it. This could be a do it yourself project, making crystal strings. You can buy swarvoski crystals from http://www.artbeads.com or ebay. I would go with a larger bead, swarvoski’s are expensive… but you could sell them on ebay after.. and they reflect the light and sparkle the best.
3. Have you ever seen vases that they wrap with ribbon? You could make your vases look more wow! if they are just glass by doing this in your colors with ribbon.
You could even do the whole vase.
4 . I’m not sure if you’ve ordered your flowers from a florist yet, but don’t. To dp just red and white roses would be easy and with your colors, I think no greens showing would be totally awesome. Easy arrangements can be done by you or a family member the day before. Check out the flowers on:
You can buy 200 roses for 168.00 shipping is included 🙂 THis would save you soo much money compared to a florist and you could probably do more flowers.
5 . Lots of candles. Your theme requires a lot of candles. Go to your local store and buy as many candles as you can afford. If you want, you could fill the inside of the candles with red little ase gems. When it got dark it would be so romantic (to match your gorgeous dress!!!- I love it)
For your guests.. I would buy some really cheap plain hand held masks. I would then get the bridesmaids together and make a mak with feathers and embellishments for each of your guests. It would be fun, and personal.
I think good masks for you and your grooms would be:
These all came from: http://store.masksandmakebelieve.com/morcarbalmas.html
Here are sites for the DIY guests masks:
I would order those in red, white, and black.. and embellish them with feathers and whatever else you can think of. You could also attatch a stick to them so they are unique… I think that would be fun.
I hope these ideas helped 🙂
