Sooo.... after I've totally blown up this thread in the last 20 minutes or so --- I couldn't help myself commenting on all of the exciting progress you all have posted today, l just have to post again.
First off, I'm floored by the creativity and generosity of you ladies being willing to share your ideas!! This thread is full of awesome synergy. LOVE it. Inspiring.
Secondly, I'm really encouraged because after racking my brain for DAYS on how to decorate for our ceremony (and using lots of printing of beach ceremony templates and colored pencils), I think it's all coming together about what we're going to do! Here's my crude drawing, haha:
It's still a rough draft. I may play with the colors a bit more and try silver chair sashes instead of teal, since the bridesmaid dresses are teal, and I don't want it to be too "tealy" lol. We'll only put sashes on the aisle chairs in order to save on cost.
The words hanging on the chairs will say "Love is the Treasure of Life." It's the saying we have on our invitation. (I also want to get shepherd's hooks for our cocktail hour and bring the words there to hang. I make some other words, too, for the cocktail hour, and put them in a container, and people can change the wording on the hooks for fun and photos --- kind of like refrigerator magnets... i.e. Just adding a "MY" word to this bunch, you could change the words to say "Love of my Life" and take a picture with them.) In this pic, the words are silver and outlined in blue. I may try to do them in brown instead so that I can hang up the words in one of our rooms when we get home (our home has more natural, earthy colors).
The flowers in glass are what they have pictured in the Sapphire collection.
I haven't included the judges table yet because I don't know what to put on it.
Any ideas or feedback as I'm playing with this? (Btw, I don't know why this smiley man has angry eyebrows. I'm definitely not angry, haha.)
Also, this means that I've kind of changed my colors to include lime green!!! I feel very happy about this because now the colors for our flowers are coming together much better, too! Now, my colors are teal, lime green, silver, and dark blue. Feeling very encouraged!
Goodnight, lovely ladies!
