Over the weekend I said I was “wrapping up my schoolhouse posts.” Well… I need to confess that wasn’t exactly true. Yes, I’m not going to be talking about schoolhouses this week, but I am still looking at school themes a little longer.
You see, I LOVE weddings. This week I want to share with you a few of the extra creative ones I have seen. A year or so ago, I ran across this gorgeous school inspired wedding on the Amorology site, and I was totally smitten. But don’t go looking for it there; it’s not in their index anymore. (But there are a dozen other dreamy weddings to see there if you’d like to take a look.) I want you to see this one because weddings can often inspire ideas for entertaining – plus this one is just so darn cute! See what you think.
With the help of Heather from Amorology, the bride and groom planned this beautiful event in only six weeks. The bride is a kindergarten teacher, so the school theme was an easy one to use. They used art work around the ceremony site that was made by her students. (Wasn’t that the sweetest idea?!)
For the reception they packed sandwiches, fresh fruit, corn on the cob, and small canning jars of pasta salad in personalized lunch boxes. Don’t these look amazing? And this is an idea I would love to copy for other types of events.
Here they are out on the tables for the guests.oncewed.com
The dance floor at the reception was set up by a treehouse. The dj was actually working up in that treehouse!
For dessert at the reception, there was strawberry shortcake along with homemade cupcakes and cookies.elizabethannedesigns.com
And of course, there was a beautiful and delicious wedding cake. I love the simplicity of that cake design.
There are so many things about this wedding that make me love it…the theme, the colors (can’t resist all that red and yellow!), the daisies, the ribbon (that white stitched ribbon is my go-to choice every time), the touches of gingham in the jar labels, the boxed lunches, the homemade desserts…oh, and that gorgeous cake simply adorned with red. Yes, I love this wedding!
So are there any wedding ideas you have
stolen copied, either for a wedding or to use for other events?
We’d love to hear about them!
