Actually, apart from their guest books, I also like their sheet music customised gift boxes. These could serve as inspirations for the ang pao boxes used in Chinese weddings. 🙂

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 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:

Vinyl Record Guest Book

28 Dec
Vinyl Guest Book

Vinyl Guest Book

Idea from calgaryweddingassistant.wordpress.com: “You don’t have to ask your guests to sign a book. Use a vinyl record instead – (like maybe with your first dance song). Put it on a table at the reception, throw silver or gold pens out, and encourage your guests to give you their autographs“. Interesting. However, how am I going to display them after the wedding?

(Google search term: vinyl record with flowers table setting)

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.

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).

Rock and Roll Themed Wedding Invitations

25 Oct

If the wedding is about the celebration of two rock and roll lovers, then I say make the invitations rock! I found this lead from http://www.w-weddinginvitations.com/rock-and-roll-theme-wedding-invitations/that show ideas for rock and roll themed wedding invitations, including fashioning them after ticket stub, making CD invitations (see images below), using the electric guitar as a symbol, or including lyrics from a rock and roll song.
