Inspiration Board

So I made this inspiration board to figure out some elements I would like to incorporate into our wedding.  It's movie themed and I think it would be a lot of fun.  I just have to make sure I can get it done within my budget.

Wedding Bands

Well Casey and I both got our wedding bands!!  We came in $80 over budget but it's fine because I am significantly under budget on our invites thanks to my wonderful bridesmaid Ruby.  :)  Casey's band is made out of Tungsten steel which is scratch-proof.  It's just a plain band which is exactly what he wanted.  Mine is actually an insert.  My ring was a pain in the ass to match because it's such a weird shape but we found an insert that will work if they bend and twist it a little.  So my ring is in the shop (which kind of sucks because now I feel naked).  It's a really pretty insert though and I think it's going to look amazing after it's all put together.  So that's another thing we have taken care of.  Little by little we are getting things done.

Invitations and More

So Ruby has been working on my invitations with some of her students.  I have to say, they look pretty friggin amazing.  The best part is that they're unique.  They were made specifically for me and Casey.  I love them and I have to thank Ruby so much for putting so much time into them!

My next thing is to figure out centerpieces.  I would like to do something movie-themed (like each table is a different movie) but I also need them to be cheap and easy.  Like a little memoribilia from each movie and maybe some simple flowers?  I don't know.  I was going to try to do something beach-themed but Casey hated the idea so I guess that's out.  Flowers can work but I don't want to spend a lot of money on vases and flowers.  I would love to do something with a Hollywood theme but I don't know exactly what we would be able to pull off.  Suggestions are certainly welcome!!
