We’re having a sort of elegant Halloween theme. Our wedding is the day after Halloween and we’re having people come dressed in costume based on the theme of famous couples in movies and television. We’re naming all of the tables after our favorite geeky couples (Leia and Han from Star Wars, Riker and Troi from Star Trek, Aragorn and Arwen from LOTR, etc). Our colors are burgundy, black, silver, and accents of orange. I have NO idea what to call our theme, but I think it will be a lot of fun!

We are going with a Parisian, baroque theme, damask in black and white, with pops of hot pink and Tiffany Blue. Our centerpieces are vintage silver bowls and pitchers filled with flowers. I love the idea of a theme without going overboard like a prom, it helps to keep your focus with all the great inspiration on WeddingBee. Without the theme I would have changed my mind a million times!

hahaha – egad I love your theme 🙂

 as for winter ideas – a totally white wedding would look really chic and modern… personally I would go that route if I were celbrating in the winter. It’s not to cheesy or christmassy either. Modern minimalism is something we’re both into… but that’s not for evreryone… This might sounds lame, but like the advice I used for picking out my dress (go through your closet, see what dresses you own because those are the styles  you totally rock!) you should do the same for your theme if you’re really stuck. Take a stroll through your house, your favorite furniture store even (poterry barn vs z gallery?) and that should give you some inspiration too.

Genealogy is one of our shared passions.  So we’re doing a "family tree" theme with a vintage feel.  Seating card "leaves" will hang from a manzanita tree, each table will feature a differnet surname from either of our family trees with framed photos from each of those families.  I really want the centerpieces to look as if they’ve been passed down through the years, so I’ve collected a few styles of antiqued mercury glass containers.  Plus I’ve created silhouettes of us that will be on the invites and sprinkled about in other places as our "logo".

For us, it’s a great way to honor the generations that have come before us and celebrate the "merging" of our trees.  :o)

This is about the only thing I know for sure right now as far as details – we’re having a nautical theme! Aside from incorporating seashells, starfish, and sand dollars I haven’t made any decisions. I still need to pick a venue! Is anyone familiar with, or no anyone who held their reception at Venetian Pool Coral Gables? I heard they have a 9:30 curfew?
