I woke up this morning and it hit me that my wedding is less than two weeks away. Wow. And Yikes. I’m not allowing myself to freak out or become even remotely bridezilla-ish because I know that’s wouldn’t be good for anyone, especially not my L’il Boomba, so I’m just making lots of lists and systematically checking things off.
Yesterday I worked on the final table setting arrangement–I took some photos to give to the caterers who will be setting up the tables so that we can be sure that they end up as close as possible to my vision (I may not be a bridezilla, but I am still a designer!) I set everything up and am really happy with the end result. The only significant difference between this setup and the one at my actual wedding reception will be the flatware. The flatware I have rented for the reception is gold. Ya, It’s hot.
I’ve paired the Areca leaf plateware and my hand dyed vintage linens with the floral centerpieces that are planted in recycled jars. Also, I’m using paint chips from the hardware store (I have 100′s of these from personal and client projects in a shoebox) to make place-cards for all of our guests. With the vintage table runners I think we are gonna have ourselves one charming family style dinner reception.
My only question now is–which arrangement do you like better, Version A or Version B? Version A I have the knife holding up the place-card, and the bowl is on the diagonal–version B is more standard. Thoughts? Which version shall I send to the caterer?
It seems so silly to think about such tiny details–but in the end, I do think that it is this type of attention to detail that transforms an event from pretty to impeccable. OK, now I’m starting to sound like a Bridezilla–so I’ll shut up
