Ok so this is my first official post. I've kinda been lurking around, but I need some help nurturing a theme idea before I present it to my boyfriend (he wants to start planning a wedding but won't propose until the time is right and enough money is saved kinda frustrating). First off I want it low-key because this is my second wedding and I have two small children. I will be shouldering the bride's family's portion of the budget so yeah... low budget.
Anyway he has requested at least one color be light blue (for UNC and almost everyone in his family has had light blue as a color) and I wanna be unique. I root for LSU so I am thinking a UNC vs LSU theme. Incorporate both of the teams' colors (lt blue & white, and purple & gold) but maybe major colors being blue and gold (or does anyone think the blue & purple would look good?) For the reception I am thinking just a fun thing all the guests can enjoy and even some of us can start a football game! For the cakes we would do two very small cakes (one for each team) and cupcakes for all the guests 1/2 UNC & 1/2 LSU. Anyway I need ideas to keep this a fun but classy affair. There will be no alcohol, and I'm stuck on a menu to make everyone happy (I'm from Louisiana but live in Georgia and he lives in North Carolina)!
Sorry this kinda got long, but any help would be appreciated!
