So, I’m just starting to look at venues and will probably end up with a country/golf club type venue. Spring 2013
I”m kind of lost when it comes to a “theme” though-not that I HAVE to have one, but there are some things about my Fiance and I that I would love to incorporate.
We both love animals and volunteer for an animal rescue organization-we also have a dog that is a child to us-even plan on having him there with us!
I also like wine–haha, but the dog thing is probably bigger.
Any ideas? As far as color, I”m leaning towards lavendar/purple. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! I don’t think I’m the most creative of people 😉

Wine theme definitely and it’s always fun to include dogs in the ceremony when you can. Not sure how to incorporate dogs into the theme though. If you’re thinking of favors this would be a good place to use a donation to the rescue organization or shelter you volunteer at.

We don’t really have a theme… I’m just going for simple and elegant. Our colors are purple shades (mostly plum), white, and gold.
We’re huge cat people, and I wanted to incorporate cats into our day without being obnoxious about it… so I had my artistic friend make a cake topper for us:
It’s not done yet, and I can’t find my inspiration picture right now bc I’m at work, but the end product will be very simple and elegant. Maybe you could do something like that with dogs? Or maybe name tables after dog breeds? Or a candy buffet with “doggie bags”?
Just throwing stuff out there. haha

I’m not creative either but maybe you can get paw print ID tags in bulk to put name cards in? I don’t know if you planned on a seating chart but that may be a cute idea, even if it is just for the head table.
You could also maybe include a doggy picture frame as a party favor for each guest or sometimes they have picture coasters, which you could include a picture of a rescue dog from the shelter and its name, just so people know who they can adopt.
I’m sure there are ton of wine ideas out there to research so that’s why I gave you mostly dog ones, lol. If you are dealing with wine and purple theme, the rustic the better IMO.
I am horrible at ideas, so I hope these aren’t too lame. Good luck!

@beachbride1216: My sister just went to a wedding where instead of favors, the couple donated to the ASPCA-I really like the idea of doing that.
A friend of ours threw us an engagment party and instead of gifts, asked that people make donations to the animal shelter. Thanks!

@Mrs.Beeloney: I have looked into etsy cake toppers-including a couple and a dog! I like yours, very pretty 🙂 I also like the idea of “doggie bags” as I’m liking the idea of a candy table. Thanks!

@megz06: Thanks for the ideas. I came across a blog where a couple had the table cards in teh shape of a dachsund, so cute (again, not that creative..so I’d have to pay someone to do that 🙂
