Do realize that OF COURSE I am not going to use every idea I post. These are just random ideas I find that I happen to like. Then I will pair some together and take ideas from elsewhere for my final result, and post pictures of my weddding at the end.

So, for example, “right now” I like metallic brown tablecloths with peacock blue napkins, (we have white dishes and plain clear glasses no matter what, because they’re from the hall,) tall candelabra looking things to hold the flowers, the tree  centerpiece idea, and an atmosphere that makes it seem like you are in a garden or forest at night.

My mom and I both like this centerpiece, so we may compromise on this:

So, my main colors are blue, orange, and purple. Any green will be from the plants, which is not much at all, and any red is unlikely. Pretty much no black, yellow, pink, or brown so far. Unless the tables are covered in brown and have blue-green napkins.

I am thinking about turning the ideas I’ve had so far into an Enchanted Forest theme, but not so sure the hall would work for that.
