For our last school themed wedding this week, I want you to see this gorgeous one that was held in Napa Valley. This couple, like the bride and groom in my last post, met in 4th grade. And again, that was the jumpstart for their wedding theme.
This wedding seemed to be a little more formal than the others we have enjoyed this week, although they did include many elementary school elements. This was their invitation suite with beautiful calligraphy and vintage stamps.
Their fourth grade school pictures were displayed at the guest signing table along with a chalkboard. (I would die if my school pictures were displayed at my wedding! Oh my gosh.)
Instead of a traditional guestbook, the bride and groom asked the guests to leave “love notes” written on notebook paper.
For table seating, the name of each guest was printed on a tag and attached to a yellow pencil. The tag also told which “grade” the guest was in…aka the table for their assigned seating.
The tables at the reception had beautiful flower arrangements along with the “grade assignments” for their guests on clipboards.
The couple’s chairs had lovely apple garlands draped across them.
And for the final elementary school touch, the dessert tables were set up “bake sale” style with brownies, rice krispie treats, cookies, and cartons of milk. Guests were even invited to take some of the treats home in little brown lunchsacks with the bride and groom’s names printed on them.
Wasn’t that another gorgeous wedding? The school theme seems to be a popular one for weddings – especially for couples who met in school. I think I could do a month of posts and still not cover all of the ones on the internet. Here are some links to a few more if you would like to take a peek at them.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing all the creativity in these beautiful ceremonies and receptions. My question for us to talk about today is…
If you could have a theme for your wedding, what would it be?
I have one more wedding to share with you this week, but I promise you it’s not a school themed one!
