hey there, not a theme as such, were puttin up fairy lights and some white linen with lights behind it, were having white and gold tables and white chair covers with a gold sash, the hotel provide them as a huge discount!! :o0 :o0 for the table names were thinking along the lines of famous couples or xmas songs as were getting married new years eve!! not too sure on that detail yet though!!

We're sort of having a Celtic theme - H2B is Scottish so all the placecards on the tables will have a small shamrock for the Irish crowd and a thistle for the Scottish crowd. Kilts are being worn too! A bagpiper will pipe us into the reception. Our table names are being named after all the places we travelled on our world tour - good memories! Would like Fairy lights at the back of the top table too but trying to source them O:|

I'm hoping to have a real, summer tropical party feeling. Habing sparkling wine for the pre-reception so hoping to add some red fruit syrup thing to it to make cocktails!! Having loads of orange/red on tables and hoping, if the lighting guys can do it, to change the room after the reception to red lighting all along the walls for a real party feel. I hope these guys can do it anyways, they claim to be able to do it on their website, so fingers crossed!!! :o0

Receptions appear to be a lot cheaper than Gotcha covered and some of the other crowds. Still trying to suss out where I can get the best deal as regards fairy lights and chair covers. Gotcha covered charge double the quote I got from Receptions and the woman I dealt with wasn't exactly pleasant. If anyone knows of a great deal out there please let me know.
