From the wedding box
Perhaps every house have a Christmas box, i.e. a box with Christmas attributes. And now we have so-called the wedding box. It is quite large and contains all except of course suit and dress. Now I will show you what we are storing in it.
It all started with a bouquet. I wanted a blue-and-violet-crimson flowers. Wonderful Olga did for me a fabulous bride’s bouquet. All day I was enjoyed it and could not admire enough. I adore the wild bouquets with a combination of several kinds of flowers.
Hall for Banquet we got quite picturesque, but especially the light is good there. We made a curtain of tapes, which created a bright background behind us. It was done very simply: we nailed a long ribbons of different colors on a wooden beam. Chairs tied with the same ribbon, tulle was removed, it was unnecessary for us. And now we definitely guaranteed of satin ribbons for all life, because it took an insane amount of meters! And now you know who to ask.
My sisters helped me a lot. They did an amazing garlands of thick colored paper in the hearts shape, which complements the curtain and table.
Instead of the book of wishes we made hearts, on which guests could write wishes, and then link to our curtain. It was seems like a small ritual.
The tables were decorated with small glasses with fresh roses, which was designed by my sister. Our table was decorated with a musical instruments composition.
And this is a schematic seating guests. To create it I was needed: watercolor, double sided tape, ribbons and a hole punch.
Box from IKEA turned into a nice coin box, which was ultimately did not needed to us.
And now about the cars decoration. We are not fans of limousines, balloons and clumsy decor, which most people decorate their wedding cars. Therefore, it was decided to do everything stylish and simple. Sisters helped to make small ribbon bows, which were tied to the handles of the cars. For our wedding machine I made a garland “Just Married”, which adorned the car back. We wanted to tie back tins but realised that instead of scaring away evil spirits they will attract “good” police. The girls painted cars with a chalk solution.
Sisters created this collage with our photos. It turned out wonderful!
Ideas for our wedding I came up from this wonderful site. I found it on the Internet many years ago and have kept in my head just in case. And in the end it was useful.
