I think I forgot to mention our wedding date: March 20, 2010, first day of spring. Also, it's the wedding anniversary of Mr. Fairfax's parents. I was hoping to do something big to honor them during our wedding but they don't seem to want to be made a big fuss of.. I'm going to have to figure something out that will not embarrass them but will recognize them in some way.. Any ideas?
So we have tentatively chosen our linens - a light sunny yellow for the table cloths, and a cornflower blue for the napkins (images fromWeParty.com
). I didn't really mean for it to set the tone for the entire wedding but it definitely has. I am now obsessed with having a yellow and blue wedding. I think it'll really go well with our venue. For one thing, it'll bring the chairs in.
Old Town Hall provides tables and chairs at no extra cost. The chairs look Comfortable, but uhh.. they aint
. They're dark blue, and don't look like they'd take well to sashes or anything like that, so I'm not going to fight it. I'm going to work With them instead of against them.
Another thing about the venue, it's a really charming historical building, and inside there's a lot of exposed beams and columns and all like that. So I'd like to have a more toned-down sorta vintage feel to the decor - and then make it really bright and springy with the flowers. We are not hiring a florist. A couple friends have gardens so I'm hoping they'll be able to have some spring flowers blooming by the time our wedding comes along - if they don't, it'll be Whole Foods or Trader Joe's. I'm already saving as many glass jars as I can so I can fill them with flowers and use them as centerpieces - along with some votives and maybe some button flowers. Button flowers? more on that later.. :)
