So I am planning a wedding reception for December and it’s, as would be expected, annoying.
It’s just a process of “OMG I want this!” then looking at price tags and going “Oh… maybe not.”. Sigh. Inevitable, I guess.
That doesn’t stop us from dreaming though …
Neither of us are huge wedding people. The pouffy dresses, the formality of processions and especially the kissing games – are not really our things. We want a wedding that makes more sense to us, that is less formulaic, less flashy but still meaningful. I will eventually write up a post of things we’re skipping out on (hint: don’t expect veils, kissing games or bouquet tosses at this wedding). For now, I will post some pictures of the wedding I want to have:
I went to a Holiday Party at Steam Whistle in downtown Toronto a couple of years ago and fell in love with it.
It would be awesome to have the reception here.
It’s a pretty nice place, open with lots of opportunities to modify and make it your own.
I love the string lights …
… and the lanterns. I have a thing for lanterns.
As for centerpieces and such – no flowers for us. It’s December, people! Lights, though – candles, lanterns, balloons – that’s more our speed.
And for bombenieres (spelling?) … I mean, the possibilities are killing me …
So many cool options …
As for now, I will leave you with one of the final choices for our first dance … which is sort of a silly name, as we’ve danced many many times before …
What do you think of the feel ?
