The Stuff of Weddings
Color is a motif not a theme. Themes are concepts. You choose whatever point in your love story or meet up resonates and then take it from there.
If you are squeamish about black for a wedding, go for deep tones – purple, plum, indigo. Everything else should be simple and monochromatic, since your fiber optic accents and lighting are colorful enough. You could give away chocolate, nuts or small wine bottles (lots of suppliers to tap, online or not). You need a good script and a good host, so he/she could keep the party up on their toes. You need a nice venue, either a stylized warehouse, atrium or glass house type - not too high ceilings or so much space that it is difficult to create a cozy, intimate set up but high enough to make you feel God is looking in hehe. The theme and all its props should fit in with the look of the venue. Lofty is for fairy tale, celestial weddings and stately couple proportions. The Palace of Fine Arts is a great venue for fairy tale weddings, real romantic and old enough to stand on tradition. Think of the symbolism, do you want a marriage that lasts or one that's just tipsy turvy? Kidding! Speaking of symbols, how about the swans. One cannot live without the other right? They are purity and eternal faithfulness, grace and beauty...all that, except when they can't make babies. Drats! There's always a caveat to emptor the nest, right? Moral of the story: choose your symbols wisely. Love needs all the help it can get.
