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

Music/Pink themed Party!

23 Dec

I found this fun looking pink plus pink music themed birthday party in the website Pink Teacup Shoppe. The organisers and guests seemed to be really young, but I am really impressed by some of the music themed ideas featured.

(1) Food  – Cake and Cupcake

I am not a fan of cakes and cupcakes, but I think these look really cute and adorable.

Music Themed Tablescapes

22 Dec

Here are some ideas that I found on music themed table-setting.

Music themed table, featuerd in Marth Stewarts

Music themed table, featuerd in Martha Stewart Weddings

1. Using music records and curious

  • Google Search Term: Music themed table decorations
  • Website: Martha Stewart -Jeremy and Andrew’s Wedding
  • Remarks: Description from the website, “…perched atop the “music” table’s orange shag carpet is a rack of 8-track tapes and a Woodstock LP tucked into a Fisher-Price record player. Florist Candice Milliard rooted succulents in a retro cork planter and used craspedia to playfully suggest a disco ball…” I thought this is  an interesting alternative to flowers! We can display super old CD records that can be conversation pieces for older folks, and upbeat ones for the younger ones.
Violin and Mandolin Centrepiece

2. Using a Violin and Mandolin.

  • Google Search Term: Music themed table decoration
  • Website: carolina-jewels-table
  • Remarks: The use of instruments as decor is indeed interesting. The designer said, “For the centerpiece I used a fiddle and a mandolin. I was lucky enough to have my daughter’s violin/fiddle and one of her friend’s loaned us the mandolin. Getting them to lean just the way I wanted was a bit of a challenge. I finally used 2 glass cake plates with lips which could hold up the instruments, a vase to hold up the mandolin’s neck and a ham holder to more securely hold the fiddle. All of these got covered with black fabric which blended with the black table cloths. Around the tables I used pennants made of old sheet music glued to ribbon and then attached to the edge of the table.”

3. Using Concert Posters

  • Website: Trixx/Mixx Productions
  • Remarks: Putting posters are also possible. If you have  past programme booklets from concerts, these can possible be part of the decorations.

Will keep a lookout for some more!

Beatles’ Themed Wedding

28 Oct

I  found another rock and roll themed wedding,  this time from poptastic bride.com The bride and groom, Annette and Dennis, are rock musicians, and bonded by rock and roll music. It was therefore natural and fitting that they chose a Beatles’ themed wedding. The couple really brought out the theme in every aspect of the wedding, starting from the invitations, table scapes, and even the decor of the  venue.  Some of these details can be found in the following pictures. Other images can be found from the poptastic website (just click on the link above).
