loving the save the dates ...'STDS!' tehehe!

i really think you should include pumpkins in your day somehow, whether they be in the centerpieces or placed somewhere in the house ... or even a few placed outside on them steps? Do you have a 'pumpkin patch' near you? We can only buy from supermarkets over here, but this year i grew my own pumpkin...its average size.. but is still green!! hahaa! They can be quite expensive, but sometimes you can find bargains and get huge ones for like £2!

Sorry to bombard with ideas but this whole fall theme gets me excited!!

I Love the STD! (hehehe i had the same reaction when i first saw that )

And i love the idea of different fruit on each table. thats how you could do place cards!!! Like Mr and mrs. so and so over to the Cranberry table and have their place card cranberry colored. O0o0o0o the gears are turning!!!

i dont know what those ice looking things are on the bottom but there are those gel ball things at craft store that you can put on the bottom.

VERY cute idea. Thanks about the gel tip, bet I can find them at Michaels. My plan for place cards, was to do something like, "Magic awaits you at table Aurora, table Cinderella, table Ariel...I can get away with it, since 80 % of my guests will be women!!

hehe to add to the gel idea... you can get the table scatter crystals....if you look around you can get them for very cheap! you could put them in the jars / or baskets with the fruit?

Like Fall/ Winter you get frost/snow...so the crystals or the gel could be like the symbol of frost or winter on the fruits? Just throw the crystals all over the fruit!

I'm caught up....love the plans!

I really wanted a fall wedding....but since many of our guests have gone back to school (including us) it wouldn't work for a destination wedding. I LOVE the dress! It is so pretty, and perfect for fall! The home you rented out is very gorgeous, and such a steal! It will look amazing!!! My bday is July too....I love the idea of having a ruby band (but red is so not my colour, so I think I am going to get pink )

Thank you SO much. I'm fortunate in that none of us are in school. We are , um, the 40 and over crowd ! So I'm THRILLED to be having a fall ceremony. Fall is my absolute fav time of year. Also, my son will be home from Afghanastan by then, I could never do this without all my children present.

Funny, as a child growing up, I HATED my birthstone, but now, as an adult, I LOVE it. It really thrills me that we'll have matching bands.

i wish wish wish we had a Michaels over here in the UK! We have small craft stores like Hobbycraft-but its not so good as michaels. You do get the odd wedding shop like confetti but they charge a fortune for things!

Its strange, we loved the Living Seas venue at first, but it costs more and that meant we had to have Disney photos, but then it went to the Whitehall- which i loved because it had the outside area and it was a room you couldnt really go wrong with, but you had to decorate it a lot to get a particular style ... and then the Attic seemed our best choice- (we didnt go and site visit it either) At first i fell in love, then i fell out of love and now in back in love with it- im just hoping our guests dont find it too wierd- i mean, the whole granny house look is not the norm for a wedding reception- but i have grown to like it because of the character and the view from the place.

Im just hoping our guests will like it! haha! it will either be a hit or a miss!

Ohhhh, trust me, they'll LOVE it. EVERY picture I've seen of wedding receptions, I LOVED them all. Wonderful place. It will be lovely, I'm sure!

Now I'm bouncing back & forth on the flower idea...while I LOVE the echo friendly vases w/ fruit, it's alot of extra work the day of the ceremony. We'd have to transport all the vases, and then put them together that day. As it is, we have alot to do that day. IF I go with the quote from the florist, which is reasonable, that's less I have to do, PLUS they deliver to us. All we'd have to do it put the centerpieces on the tables and hang some garland on the fireplace. Is the extra $200 that I would have saved doing them myself worth it? Not sure. I'll get to the house, at 2pm and the ceremony starts at 3:30. Just thinking it's too much to do and we have so much already on our plates...still on the fence. Oye vey!
