Im matron of honour for my best friends' wedding
She dsnt want an ordinary wedding. She wants something to make it stand out & I have to help her plan it & come up with ideas

Her colour scheme is black & gold. I dnt have any ideas of how to make her wedding diff or special
Do the moomies have any ideas?????

She is Xhosa & her fiance is white, English. I was thinking of a theme of mixing/combining the 2 cultures but not sure how I wld make that work without being cliche'.

A Xhosa theme seems a bit too much as there is another culture involved.... any ideas????

Hi Zodwa

I'm a sucker for weddings and google ideas to help friends out all the time.

check out this link..

I think this was pretty stunning and gold and black are both strong colours so you really have to work them together nicely not to make things appear too overwhelming

I am a bit reluctant on "themes" on a wedding as they can sometimes go badly wrong.

however .......

I saw something recently that I thought was really good and such a memorable and not too complicated idea.

The couple was quite different, so what they did is they got a lot of picture frames - really quirky ones, wooden ones etc. on each table, and each place they had these pictures of them in the frames around the reception room and on the tables, and in the passage on the way to the bathroom or what ever.

It was pictures of what was important to them - maybe a holiday they had taken together and then they had set it in the frame with a quote at the bottom.

Maybe a picture of the bride's granny who could not be there and a quote from the bride about why the granny was precious to her.

What made it really special is it was personal and special memories that made the couple special and unique and they shared it with everyone.

You would walk around and stand and look at the image and read something about them, and it was really special - and reminded you of what a special couple they were.

So everywhere you went you felt you were surrounded by this special couple and they had shared their memories with you.

It was really simple and really lovely.

You might use the gold as part of the frame and the black as black and white photos.

Obviously the couple took the photos afterwards, but it is also nice as you could then give certain guests, frames with the images as gifts at the end.

It was really lovely and endearing.

Every table was named as a place that had been on holiday together, and that added to it.

I have a letter from my pdoc to say I am insane, so tread lightly with me, some days I can be a total bitch. I'm lying. Most days I am a total bitch.

I abhor smiley face icons. Just saying.

Thanks for the link Angelique, am suddenly inspired. I have zero imagination so to have visuals to work with is nice

Also love the frame ideas RM, but without the pics. They have had such a difficult relationship with both families not happy bout their relationship. So they trully have very few photos.
I just saw on the link Angelique gave a photo frame with the word LOVE inside it. Now Im thinking mayb have photo frames with words describing what's special bout their relationship!!
They've travelled a long road to finally get to a wedding day so mayb word of inspiration, love, commitment, etc

Thanks so much for the inspiration ladies!!

Zodwa - a cool idea would be to get together as friends (and all chip in) and send them on an "engagement" photoshoot so that they do have lovely photos of them as a couple.

Doing this more than a month or two before the wedding.

That way they have lovely couple shots that they can use in the wedding and also then they have photos of them as a couple, rather than only them having couple photos only in their wedding garb .... if that makes sense?

A nice idea is if friends of the couple say things about how great they are as a couple - and you use these "quotes" in the frames with the photographs of them - sort of reinforcing how "right" they are for each other.

Anyway ...... just an idea.
