So below is a picture of the setup of the ceremony site. My apologies for the pixelation and blurriness --- it was originally a small 75x75 size shot, so I enlarged it...
As you can see, this setup has an aisle runner (which we're foregoing) and subsequent petals on the aisle (which we're also thinking of nixing).
Our florist, creative genius that she is, has tons of suggestions and ideas for me! Her first thought was to line just the sides of the aisle in white petals. It's a little different than the traditional scatter, but for some reason, I'm just not in love with the idea.
Then I found this picture:
As Kristen (the florist) put it, it's like petal carpet! I just think it lends a very ethereal, romantic look to it...
Then, she had another brilliant idea: adding chair sashes to the unfortunately ugly chairs we'll be working with. Like this:
(From the archives of Kio Kreations)
Our sashes are being custom-matched to our "apple green," by the fabulous Czarina at The Chair Couture. Coincidentally, this is the same fabulous linen place I referred to for the '10 wedding plans. To cover all of our chairs, it will cost about $100! Plus, we're not even being charged for the custom color!
So, with all that in mind, does anything strike you in terms of petal decor or the arch (in the top picture)?
PS - Here's a picture of the conservatory at Wilder Park. Talk about fabulous picture opportunities!!
