When Life Gives You Lemons...

Have a lemon themed wedding. Last week I coordinated a large wedding for a friend and her color palette was black and white with lemon yellow. I wish you could have seen how gorgeous this wedding was. It was one of those over the top fabulous weddings where all the details were perfectly thought out, except the garter (I'll tell you about that later). Long story short, the bride didn't want the typical table numbers so, I chatted with her about other options and then I suggested to further develop the use of lemons. I knew we would be incorporating lots of fresh lemons in all the florals so why not create table names based on anything lemon. We had lemon meringue pie, lemonade, lemon bars, lemon poppyseed muffins, lemon zest, lemon chiffon, lemon drops and a bunch more. I even had lemon chicken and lemon pledge on this list--I am glad she didn't go for those. I did all the placecards, table names, and even these super cute pennant banners for the ring bearer to parade with through the reception. As the dj announced the toasts, or cake cutting, or bouquet toss, the ring bearer walked through the crowd and eveybody thought he was super cute. He is eight and he said to his mom "this is so stupid." It wasn't, in fact it was a fun touch.
