Hi all. For some reason it took me until now to realize there was a board for offbeat weddings! I just kept missing it, but I'm glad I found it!
First, I need some help deciding what my bridesmaids shoes should be.
I decided long before I was engaged that I wanted to wear my converse chuck taylors with my dress. They are black and red, and they are a little bit higher than standard high tops. (If you want/need pics, I may be able to provide some.) They don't really match our color scheme (which is black, white and green), but I don't think they'll be seen unless I hold up my dress.
I never considered what my bridesmaids should wear. I don't feel like they have to wear converse with me, but I don't think they should wear heels. They are certainly willing to wear converse if they have to, though. One of my bridesmaids suggested they wear flats. I'm not really sure. Any input on this?
Secondly, I need some help with cake ideas. (Video game reference ahead!) Originally, I wanted my cake to be the companion cube from Portal. Then I decided that I would make the companion cube into the card box instead, leaving me back to square one for cake ideas. The next thing I thought about was steampunk. FI and I love steampunk, but any cake ideas I searched for pull up really elaborate bronze amazing things that 1) I don't think I can afford and 2) don't match our color scheme. I realize that bronze is the whole basis of steampunk, but I thought maybe I could find some sort of steampunk inspired design that isn't bronze, per se.
Does anyone know where I could find some more steampunk ideas? Or, just more offbeat cake ideas, in general? I'm not really getting much inspiration from the knot's selection.
Thanks in advance for your input!
