The favour was Mark’s family’s secret spice rub. Provided in individual beakers, the papers told the history of the mix and also provided a recipe.

This was probably one of my favourite ideas I saw all year. Instead of kissing when guests “clinked” glasses, Mark and Caiti set up a donation box for the Humane Society at their table. When a donation was made, a kiss was given!

Wedding #1:

Then one day I saw this tucked within photos of one my most favorite events ever featured on Style Me Pretty:

Wedding #2:

And then I discovered amorology weddings and saw that they featured the ribboned lanterns as well:

Wedding #3:

LOVE! Although I don’t think I want to use paper lanterns, I thought it might be nice to mix poms with ribbons hanging from the bottom instead.

So, I’m all ready to hop into photoshop and get to work or even head down to Michael’s to try it out, and then what do I see again in photos of another one of my favorite events on Style Me Pretty?

These beautiful multi-flower poms are so great! Swoon. I love the different colors, and since I don’t think we are going to stick with one or two “wedding colors” I like this option. They have that same effect as poms, but the multi-colored poms and ribbons are different than the regular poms seen all over the place. They certainly seem like more work though.

Has anyone seen tutorials for multicolored poms like these?

Yet Another Wedding Blog …

Filed under: Uncategorized — tiffanyilin @ 6:14 pm

My fiance and I, two 30 somethings, are planning a Summer (or Fall) of 2010 wedding in one of the most expensive (yet beautiful) places on earth, the San Francisco Bay Area.  Instead of being mesmerized by the various bridal magazines, we want a sensible yet classy wedding, one that would neither embarass my demanding family nor burn a hole in our pockets.

Demanding may not be the right word. Rather, because I’m an only child, because I’m from Taiwan (with a culture that puts a lot of emphasis on weddings), I feel obligated to create a wedding experience that doesn’t make my parents lose face but also is decidedly me and my fiance. Good luck (to me!) … we will need it.
