Ah, sorry it has been so long since my last post! I have been ill, but am doing much better!
Luckily, I have had a while to make plans! Along with some input from others, here are some of my ideas:
- Instead of the common playing cards for favors, give a teacup with mismatched saucer and a pack of your favorite tea. I would also go as far as making my own stickers that say “Drink Me”! Teacups and saucers can be found on ebay for relatively cheap. Search for “teacup lot” or “saucer lot”.
- I think having the younger attendents in costume would be fun! The flower girl in an Alice costume and the ring bearer in a Mad Hatter costume would be neat. Also, instead of the RB carrying a pillow with the rings, maybe place them in a teacup that has been glued to a saucer. For saftey, tying the rings to a ribbon and then tying it to the finger hold would keep them safely attached in case of an accident!
- Croquet sets! I have tried searching for Flamingo Croquet sets, but to no avail. This is a great idea for a garden wedding! Croquet is fun and not too active which is nice for the warmer seasons.
- Have a hookah table! Often times hookah bars will allow rentals of hookahs and come with an attendent. This idea is probably best for a less formal wedding.
- If having a formal wedding, try going all white with little color accents, like this wedding board suggests. That same link also has interesting ideas for having an Alice wedding such as having your wedding in a garden location with a maze! How neat is that?
- Wear black and white striped tights under your dress!
- Signs that point “this way” and “that way” and also signs on chairs that say “sit on me” or “sit here”. Don’t forget the “eat me” and “drink me” signs, too. These are classic Alice and will lend a sense of humor to the occasion.
- Have a checkerboard aisle runner instead of the more common white or red ones.
- I am seriously thinking about making “painted” roses for the centerpieces and bouquets. My mother said that it would probably be fairly easy to take silk roses and dip the tips in a RIT dye solution to give them a painted apperance. I am going to try this idea maybe next weekend, and will post pictures and instructions if it turns out to work well. Otherwise, I will post a caution!
These are just a few ideas that my friends and I have come up with. Are there any others out there that you believe should be included in my next post? If so, please feel free to post them!
