58 Days!

I was so excited today to find a wedding album on facebook of a friend-of-a-friend who happened to have her wedding reception at the Howard Johnson Hotel.  I got so excited and eager for my own wedding while looking at the pictures that I thought I would share a few with you as well.  It's getting so close, and seeing these pictures makes it seem even more real! 

The couple's first dance.  We will not be doing the chair covers you see in the picture.  Chair covers can be cool, especially if you add a ribbon or sash around them, but I am not in love with them enough to pay to rent them for 300 people. 

Looking out over the main part of the ballroom.  Like this couple, we will be doing uplighting around the room, but in a golden/amber hue instead of purple.  Our head table will be on the dance floor, which is in the right-hand corner of the room as seen in this picture.

Let them eat cake!  We will also be placing our cake table in one of the alcoves of the room.  However, we will be hanging glowing Chinese paper lanterns in turquoise and white over our cake table.  Our cake will be quite a bit taller than this one, too! 

I am so excited for our first dance!  I hope Lee and I get a picture like this! 

The tablescape.  We will be having a floating candles on mirrors surrounded by votive candles as our centerpieces.  Our napkins will be folded as shown in this picture, but underneath each napkin we will have a turquoise "Thank You" card with games on the back.  We will also have a small candy favor in front of each spot. 

This couple put their head table up on the second upper level of the ballroom.  I like the idea, but we will need the extra space up there for guest tables.  We will also be doing the icicle lighting underneath the tablecloth of the head table.
