I'm to the point in the wedding planning process where I'm trying to decide what ideas get kept and have money and time put toward them to follow through and what things don't.
Here are some of the items in consideration. What do you think?
1. Printing on the napkins
This bride's cake table runner. I do love it so and think it would be such an heirloom piece! But, I have not started on it. I am not sure what color it should be considering all of the other color in the linens, etc.
ahhh . . . just realizing I NEED to order the candles . . .
If I get some of the shorter ones of these for some of the tables, is that getting too divergent?
Okay, sorry, candle tangent. The candles are not up for negotiation except for perhaps the copper colored holders.
If I'm serving coffee I probably need some kind of stirrers don't I? Do I? hmmm . . . I don't really drink coffee except at places that fix it all for you. I kind of don't want those skinny brown plastic straws. Do you think I can get those little wooden sticks they have at Starbuck's somewhere? in bulk? for cheap?
Okay, back to things I'm debating . . .
bittersweet runners to go along the tabletops
I can't even find a picture on the internet to show you. I think these are definitely about to get sifted out.
I am sad, sad, sad to say it but chair decorations seem to have gone by the wayside. I love chair decorations! Always have. Thought for sure I'd have some at my wedding but I haven't figured out a good/easy/quick way to decorate 375 metal folding chairs.
Here are a few I like: top right photo here
bottom second to the left here
bottom second to right here
I would have loved to have all mismatched chairs like these bottom second to right but who can do that for hundreds of people? But . . . I do get to have really close to that look with the long rectangular tables, the long beautiful table runners thanks to my mom and aunts and the candles, centerpieces, etc.
hmmmm . . . . I would love to know your thoughts.
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Kelly
