- need help with CHEAP reception ideas for a fall wedding!?
ok, so to start my brother is getting married! :) they dont have much money for the wedding or reception. they have the church already and they decided to have the reception at my moms house (wont be tons and tons of people) so they are doing the fall harvest wedding our brides made dresses are red, and our boutiques are yellow sunflowers and red sunflowers. im not really sure how all to decorate the yard for the reception (i kinda want it to be a surprise) so far my ideas are: -straw bales (for decoration AND sitting on cause we dont have many chairs) -pumpkins for decoration -mason jars (if i can find some) with a candle in them to light when it starts getting dark (wedding reception will start around noon and last till.... the last person leaves lol) -i want to get a few strands of white lights (if i can find some cheap) and drape them from the tent that the cake and food will be in to the top of the house what other ideas are their.. like i said needs to be cheap cause they don't have the money and some of this is coming out of my pocket (cause its going to be a surprise) and i dont have much money ether. any suggestions would help!! thanks in advance!
- How would you decorate this room for a wedding?
I need ideas, for decorating the room i am renting for my spring wedding reception, which i hope will be a intimate low-key, informal affair. :) this is the room: http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/L1170527.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/L1170526.jpg What do you think would work better long or round tables? There will be 75 people, buffet with servers, a bar with bartender and a dj playing quiet music. no dance floor, really more mingling and just hanging out. My style is kind of eclectic / yard sale / martha stewart / crafty I like these things - http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/MStissueballs.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/Wedding3.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/il_430xN54061756.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/mwd104300_win09_fizzydrinkt_xl.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/jm03.jpg ( i didn't pick specific wedding colors but i like the yellow pink orange combo. i like birds. i was thinking of putting a couple birds around, on the tables) I didn't want my decorations to clash with the historical beauty of the room. Its a former courthouse that hasn't been used as one since 1919. My style is kind of eclectic / yard sale / martha stewart / crafty / rustic I like these things - http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/MStissueballs.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/Wedding3.jpg http://i644.photobucket.com/albums/uu162/errnadine/mwd104300_win09_fizzydrinkt_xl.jpg What works, what doesn't? we will be doing the decorating and set up ourselves and cant reach the ceiling, i can reach the chandeliers with a ladder. I definitely don't want the spider draped ceiling thing i see everywhere. I did buy place card holders a while before i got the room, I would like to use them so i don't have to try and sell them. they are twig birds nests. i was going to put jordan almonds and a tag with the persons name. hope you can help me, thanks! i see i screwed up and repeated my whole i like these things section.. sorry i should have composed this in something other than the tiny yahoo text box!! the first pic was just for the hanging things not the place settings or table decorations. i should have included a link to flowers im thinking of white spider mums and yellow orange and pink button mums all in different size vases that i'll get on ebay and at the thrift store and from every family member i can! http://www.foglie.ca/images/fuji%20and%20button%20mums.JPG http://www.bluestoneperennials.com/images/items/350x350/MUM_Brown_Eyes.jpg yes im planning on getting yellowish / orange birds i dont actually own those in the pictures Ok so you dont think i should hang any of the garland/ banner/flag things around the walls or from the chandeliers to the walls or anywhere else?
- What stores would have fall clearance items availible right now?
My fiancee and I are getting married September of this year, so our theme is a fall wedding. We have to do this on a budget, a budget of $3,000-$5,000 for the whole wedding of 400 maybe more.(including my dress, food, etc) So I need ideas on stores and online stores that have fall themed decorations, favors, etc for a great price, I don't want my wedding to look cheap or not well thought out, so decorations that will be complimented, not made fun of. I may have a budget that isn't huge, but I want my wedding to be perfect, like any women would want. I am pretty crafty so I know I can make dollar tree items, etc work if I had ribbons and all that fancy stuff. So if they can be made to look even better, I will consider them. I tried the dollar tree online, but right now they do not sell fall season items :( The plan was to order the fake leaves and stuff they had in bulk online but its not there. I tried looking for where they get the stuff they sell from but i had no luck finding a site. Also, my dollar tree still has a few items in the back that are fall items, but they are not listed half price like they usually list old stuff, can I ask them when they will be on clearance? or if they have more items in the back? Please help with these questions and list sites you know of. Sorry for the long explanation but I had to be clear on what I was looking for. Thanks so much in Advance!
