Rock Concert with a Twist Wedding

22 Jul
Jean & Cody's Rock Conert Wedding

Jean & Cody's Rock Conert Wedding

I found this from http://offbeatbride.com/2008/12/colorful-rock-concert-wedding. Their wedding was held in an Arts Centre and had a  rock concert, with the wedding taking place in the middle of the program. Things that added to the music concert theme included  (1) the concert ticket like invitations, (2) getting the guests to turn up in their favourite concert t-shirt, (3) getting their favourite local bands to play, (4) wrist bands and guitar picks as favours and, (5) guitar guest book. More information can be found in the link above.

The Piano as a Wedding Photo Subject

23 May

I am sure couples who are featuring music as a theme for their weddings will consider using their favourite musical instruments as subjects in their pre or actual wedding photos.  There are several examples of couples who have used the piano as a photo subject, and I thought it will good to feature some interesting ones here.

Sheet Music Guest Books

3 May

While searching for unique guest book ideas, I f0und two weddings that use the manuscript music book as their guest books.

(1) Chris’ and Tim’s Wedding from Martha Stewart’s Wedding.

It’s a simple yet  interesting idea, but I wonder  how would folks who are unfamiliar with music leger lines  react to this ? Hm…

Music themed Custom Cookies

15 Apr

I prefer edible wedding favours, as I think it will not go wrong, and is more environmentally friendly.  If I have to choose, I would love to receive cookies for a wedding or party favour.   If you can bake, I am sure you can explore any of the following cookie types to complement your music themed wedding.

(1) Musical Instrument-shaped cookies

Guitar and Drum shaped cookies from Yoke Bakery

(2) Music symbol shaped cookies.

(3) Musical Medium shaped cookies.

So far I have featured those that look more adorable and edible (e.g., I don’t consider blue cookies appetizing for some reason..haha…) . I am sure that there are definitely more cookies (try searching for images under the search term “music themed cookie”), but they are variations of the categories above. Hope to see more unique music themed cookies in future!

Saw this lead from Offbeat Bride.com. Jenn Moon and Scotto had their story presented in musical form during their wedding. You can watch this from Scotto’s website: http://scotto.org/listing.php?id=276.   They looked like they had a lot of fun doing it  🙂

Music Themed Wedding featured in Love and Lavender

3 Mar

Having been to many Asian Chinese weddings throughout my life, I often found weddings in the United States and Europe more refreshing.  It seems that couples there are more willing to add personal touches in their wedding, and make the celebrations unique and different. Many of such interesting ideas are featured in  Love and Lavender, one of my favourite wedding feature websites. With regard to weddings that feature music materials, Love and Lavender has two such featured weddings:

(1) Music themed style wedding

Description: This is music theme styled wedding captured by Laura Murray. The set up is a garden wedding type, and the general colour scheme is grey and pink. Here are some featured images:
