First of all I love love love the color purple. Especially, deep purples. I am not doing purple for my wedding but tossed the idea around.

 

Secondly, are any of you lovely ladies doing DYI projects for wedding decor or centerpieces? If so what are you doing or do you have in mind? I am of course addicted to pinterest but would love to see some of the ideas you have!

Somewhere in my planning process I had the brilliant idea to have glass in my DIY centerpieces; hopefully it all makes it one piece.  Many BDW brides have taken on this challenge with great success, so Iâ€m optimistic (fingers crossed). Since we have a small guestlist (+/- 25) we decide to do a long banquet table.  I love the look of floating candles and orchids, so my centerpiece will be a medley of the pics below.  I will also provide chair sashes and table runners (sangria satin overlay over chartreuse/lime organza). I have purchase most of my items, and will complete a few mock-ups  to see how everything flows and what needs to be tweaked. I will also have various sized paper lantern hanging from the ceiling.

  Depending on much color i end up with on my table and in my centerpieces, will determine if I have chartreuse lanterns or white.  The paper lanterns will also be lit.

Yeah me too, It's my fave.  But all the flowers would blow the decor budget so I'm hoping to find a happy medium between the 3 centerpiece pics posted.

Im not sure just how much im bringing down... depends on the florist and their prices but if they give me what i want for $65 or less a table ill just go through them seeing as how there are only 4 tables id rather pay then have the hassle of hauling it down. I will be bringing table runners through as well as the table numbers but i havent started that DIY yet. im also thinking of bringing lanterns or i might bring the candles. as far as flowers go im thinking something like this

I want 4 low tin buckets filled with peonies and hydrangeas  spreadout across the table on the burlap runner. then i might scatter around votives with the center of tge table being a vintage lantern with a candle and an old picture frame with the table number

Tova I LOVE your inspiration pics...I might steal some to add to my pinterest board if you don't mind since we have some similar colors. I'm definitely thinking about glass and I'm shipping my stuff down ahead of time so I'm really hoping it all gets there in one piece! I have the same dilemma about whether to do white or purple lanterns. I'm also confused about how many lanterns I'll need. Is there any rule as far as how many per sq ft of space, etc.?

 

I haven't purchased anything yet because I'm still waiting to see how many people we'll have. My invitations are out but my RSVP date isn't until Feb. 1. I'm hoping everyone doesn't wait until then to send theirs back (they're slowly coming in now one by one LOL). Do you think Feb. is too late to start buying stuff if I at least know exactly what I'm going to buy and just am waiting on quantity?

Hey Lynn,

 

Steal away!

 

I consider mailing my items, but I donâ€t have the heart.  There are too many horror stories of shipments getting lost, or stuck in custom and never making it to resort. I would flip. And since the cost is comparable for checked luggage, I feel much better about bringing this stuff with me on the plane.

 

Honestly, I'm a bit OCD and made a paper lantern diagram in Powerpoint scaled to reflect the size I will use (8" 12" 16") and confirmed the sq ft of the terrace where my reception will be.  Crazy, I know, but I couldn't find a rule of thumb to go by, and I have seen many picks where the lanterns look sparse and too far apart (and I hate that).  There were also a few past brides at my resort who used paper lanterns and I was able to confirm their quantities and sizes and used that info as a gauge. I can send this to you later since itâ€s on another flash drive which I donâ€t have on me at the moment.

 

Ditto on the RSVP date, but I know that my max and min guest list count only varies by 8 people which isnâ€t a big deal for me when it comes to purchasing some of these décor items – qty of paper lanterns are the same weather 20 people come or 28, If I end up with extra vases/table décor then I can condense my centerpiece setup  or add more décor to the cake table or eleswhere.  I already purchased my chair sashes in both my colors  in quantities of 50 for $.15 and $.40 per sash from two previous brides on ebay. This is way more than I need but such a good deal that I couldnâ€t pass it up. I will also use them as table runners,  I just have to  strtegically use my centerpieces to hide the seams.

 

I think you can safely wait until  February for a confirmed guest count, but if you find great deals in the meantime, I wouldnâ€t pass them up.

Ooohh, I like it!  I can't recall if you created a logo with your names.  If so, then it may be nice to add, if not then maybe considering increasing the font point size for "Welcome to Our Wedding".  Also, maybe add a 1 line thank blurb at the bottom... Thank you for joing us on our special day

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
