I'm trying to avoid putting together a theme wedding per se, but I would like to overall include things that FI and I love or love to do together. I'm worried though that this is all going to look like a mess or like we didn't put much thought into it when really I'm probably putting more thought into it than I should lol.
So far, we're thinking chocolate and champagne/ gold for colors and I'd like to stay fairly consistent there.
FI grew up in NYC, going there is how we spend a lot of our free time, and we have so many meaningful places there. We both love the subway (I love to photograph there, he's into the history). For NYC Subway elements, I would like to have a subway map as a seating chart (printed in a sepia tone), but keep the place cards with a simple flourish to match the other stationary. We would like to make the table numbers pictures of subway stops for places we've been together, maybe with a little blurb about something we did at that place in the city or why it's important to us (this would be on chocolate brown card stock, on picks stuck into the centerpieces). We are considering potted mums wrapped with sepia toned subway maps for centerpieces (alternately, I could wrap the pots in brown or gold fabric or paper). For favors, I am considering either monogrammed sugar cookies (possibly frosted to look like subway train letters) or black & white cookies (they can be frosted in any color, but that's the type of cookie) in clear bags with a chocolate and gold bow.
I know this is a lot, but is this all going to work or do I need to pick something and stick with it (again, I really do not want a "theme" wedding so I'm channeling Stacy London who says "things don't have to match, they have to go together). Any input appreciated, thanks!!
