So I got married on Friday, and I was left in charge of everything (with exception of the brides outfit and flowers) so instead of going the traditional route of floral centrepieces that’ll be dead in a week I decided to revel in both my incredibly geeky nature and Jessica’s love of all things miniature (mind out of the gutter) and here are some (not all, I haven’t been able to get photo’s of two of the 10 I did…yet) of the ideas that I came up with.
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
I got married yesterday, so you can expect the next few blogs I publish to be somehow wedding related. Today I’m going to be talking about what I wore.
So here we have, myself, the ever so handsome and dashing groom, sporting a delightful wilvrost tailcoat, over royal blue DQT waistcoat with matching pocket square and buttonhole. this is all topped off with a spiffy black cravat adorned with a nice little swarovski, mother of pearl cravat pin.
Other sartorial quirks for the day included a gold Prince Albert Watch Chain and Fob, with matching watch, as well as my family crest emblazoned gold cufflinks.
I’ve been mucking about with some more ideas for wedding centrepieces here is part of a batman themed one that I have been working on.
As you can see, the GCPD headquarters is only partially finished, as I have to add a great deal of graffiti and some other bits, but it should be done in good time for the wedding.
Since I’ve been left in charge of organising my wedding, I have been looking at ideas for wedding decorations, and the idea that infuriates me most, are centrepieces. Whilst they often look nice I don’t really want to be spending a great deal of money on what is essentially table dressing, I mean runners and tablecloths are going to cost enough without adding some massive floral monstrosity into the budget.
And then it hit me, after looking through the photo’s of my Aunts wedding many centrepieces these days are simple affairs such as pebbles in a fish bowl. So thats where my idea has stemmed, but also incorporates my love of nerdy stuff and Jessica’s love of miniatures. So came the idea of some themed terrarium’s.
Here are some early ideas.
