So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
preserved purple petals
black organza bags
damask organza bags
Baskets for petal toss bags
I love signs!!!
Dried lavender buds
black rental chairs
Our fans...may or may not have the sprig of mint on them, but will have the black ribbon.
The stairs I will be walking down...and then down the aisle through our guests to the altar. Don't worry, the grass will be much greener and prettier. ;)
That arbor that you can see a little bit of is where the altar will be. The black guest chairs will cover the lawn.
So originally it was bubbles, but we think petals are more appropriate for our wedding.
The petals that we're using are freeze dried purple petals, and we might mix in some lavender buds (since we live in the land of lavender). We're putting them in little organza bags that will be displayed in a pretty rustic basket with a painted sign above it that says "Take one for the toss!".
The thing I'm trying to decide on right now is whether to use black organza bags or damask organza bags. I found the damask bags at Michael's and it was pleasant surprise to find them. I have only been to Michaels' a couple of times so it was really fun to look around the whole store and find a couple treasures.
The ceremony will be on a small lawn above where the reception area will be. The chairs will be black and each one will have a sandalwood fan with small black ribbon on it. The purple petals will also be sprinkled on the aisle to the altar.
I was thinking that since so many things were already black that I could use the damask bags to compliment our black and white color scheme? I thought it was kinda cute to also share a small hint of what my gown looks like (although most people won't understand until they see me walk down the aisle).
So any opinions? Black organza bags or damask organza bags?
Do you think the freeze dried petals will get crushed a little in the organza bags? Does it really matter if they get crushed a little?
