fun at IKEA - check out my table idea

Recommended Posts

My FI and I went to IKEA today to pick up some more of the photo frames that we are using to make the picture luminars....he hates this place so that was all I was expecting to get there....I was wrong!

 

We were able to get sheer panel drapes in the perfect color of pink/fushia which I am going to cut down and use as chair bows and table runners. They were a great price of 8.99 for 2 pannels which I figure will make 6 chair bows per package. (I posted the info for the place where I got our black table cloths in an earlier post.) We also found these really cool frosted candle holders that we put our monogram on using clear lables from staples. These were 12.99 each. We are trying to minimize the amount of flowers we need to pay for since they are expencive and not that origional.

 

My FI wanted to put this all together tonight to see what it would like. SO CUTE (him and the table!) Here are some pictures

I really like the contrast of the black and fuscia. What a great deal on the panels! I love a great deal! The luminary photo frames are really cute too....I like how they glow in a sepia color.

 

A couple of questions for you:

 

1. Are you putting photos of you and your FI in the frames? Or, photos of your guests/family, or both?

2. How do you plan to transport the glass candle holders to Mexico?

3. How many guests are you expecting? (I'm sure you've mentioned this piece of info somewhere else)

 

I've been meaning to go to Ikea to look for bar table centerpiece ideas. Thanks for making want to go NOW!

 

PS. you're lucky to have a FI who is interested (and helpful) in the way the table looks!!

First I should tell you that it is super hard to get pictures to turn out of candle things and make them show the colors and how they look in real life...

 

the photo frames have pictures of my FI and I with our guest through out our lives - like I have one that is for my parents of pictures of them and me from baby to present time - I am thinking guests can take theirs home (one per family) as a little gift after the wedding. There might be some pictures of my FI and I only but those are not the focus. The pictures are printed in black and white - sepia would work too depending on your color scheme.

 

We are going to Cabo at the end of Febuary to do our final site visit and we asked the WC at the hilton if she could keep some items for us until the wedding. My FI has gotten a little carried away with the "some items" idea but he seems to think we will be able to pack them in an old suitcase or something with a lot of bubble wrap- this is going to be interesting!

 

We are expecting 30 adults and 8 children at the most - we have yet to send out our invites so no one knows for sure. Currently we know that 10 adults and 4 kids have purchased their plane tickets. I have decided that if that is all that ends up coming we will still have one heck of a good time!

I love this forum! it is so nice to have people sharing ideas. I love the idea of the photoframes with pics of the guests to take home. What a great suv.

 

That's great that you're going to be able to bring a load of wedding stuff with you in Feb. to leave at the Hilton. I wish so much that I could do one more trip down there before my wedding.

 

Your wedding is going to be amazing and your guests are going to have such a great time!

 

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks, I am glad you like it. My color is actually a fushia or dark pink color with orange as an accent color. The photo looks a little on the red side but I think this is just since it is difficult to photograph with the lights off and only the candles as lighting. Red would look great too.

Sarah, it turned out really well, great job. Did you also see the small frosted tealight holders? You can always put a few of those candles around your cake..

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
