Decorations to Consider:

  • Martin Wedding Décor List
    Items we already HAVE
    Items we need to PURCHASE
    Items we need to MAKE (which probably involves some purchase)

    • Sign on the road that says Martin Wedding
    • Sign in front of HH that says "Welcome to the Martin Wedding"
    • "Ceremony <------"
    • "Restrooms ------>"  or wherever they are now
    • "Bridal Suite:  Do Not Enter  (unless you have truffles)"  
    • A thing to hang from the middle of the gazebo (2 foot across, pomander of some type?  DIY unless Toy Joy has something cool and cheap)  a big silver spray-painted wire and rubber ball atom comes to mind...
    • Things to hang from the eaves of the gazebo (oFlowers and beads on fishing wire?  my colored glass hanging votives?  both?)
    • Two lanterns on either side of the "door" of the gazebo, where Fr Paul will be standing - probably the teal ones on chains
    • Table with photos of our dearly departed family members
    • Folding Screen with bride and groom photos, next to table with basket of programs and scattered lit oCubes of various sizes?  Maaaaybe some single blooms in bud vases
    • Something to denote reserved front rows  (have dark silver wide outdoor-safe ribbon, can be layered with narrower teal/navy/purple ribbon?)  Or use the silver ribbon as a band and seal with a large colored or metallic sticker with a monogram?
    • Aisle decor: teal glass lanterns (on shepherd hooks OR on the ground) with lit oCube topped with pink, orange, or yellow oLotus  *have everything but the tealights and shepherd hooks already)
    • Programs:  short, simple, print in black on "parchment" paper we already have, embellish with paper cornering tool   
    • Cocktail Tables:  comes with white tablecloth and navy blue tied around the base.  Move the aisle lanterns to the tables and bar, add nerf guns.  Maybe add a round place-mat or patterned scrapbook paper squares to the middle.  Done.
    • Food/Beverage service tables:  white tablecloth, wrapping paper runners, and scattered lit oCubes of various sizes?  Maaaaybe some single blooms in bud vases?
    • Guestbook, Gift/favor table, cake table:  white tablecloth, use wrapping paper as runner, add stuff like so: 
      • guestbook: the guestbook (whjatever it ends up being), the friend&family flowers in the teal beehive vase, and black manzanilla branches with glued on oCherry Blossoms stuck into the two rectangular teal vases, and some scattered lit oCubes of various sizes
      • gift/favor:  card box (DIY from paper mache box from GardenRidge cheap after christmas!), basket with favors, and .......?  Some small/long floral thing?
      • cake:  the cake, some scattered lit oCubes of various sizes
    • Ten dining tables:  circular. seats 8, I think.  Each with a white tablecloth and navy blue runner.  All will have individually wrapped buttermints scattered.  Maybe print the menu in a frame on each table?
      1. Beer glass Table #1
      2. Beer glass Table #2
      3. World of Warcraft Table
      4. Final Fantasy Table
      5. Photography Table
      6. Cooking Table
      7. Gardening/Outdoors Table
      8. ... Table
      9. ... Table
      10. ... Table
    • We shall be seen off with bubbles.
      • VIPs will get bubble guns depending on how many we can find
      • everyone else will get standard wedding bubbles, preferable in test tubes but more likely just the regular ones


    Am I missing anything?
