still no reception venue

Next on the list will be to check out some hotels downtown. We went to Will Roger's Theatre, but one of the thing we really want to do is have Forward Foods cater the cocktail hour with all sorts of cheese, and Will Roger's said no to that, although so far Will Roger's was the best looking place we have seen so far. They were incredibly hard to get a hold of and set an appointment up with, though, and expensive.

I do also know that I want to have a candy bar, and not some lame one with candy like snickers or twix, one like this at Oh! Nuts, with pink and green candy in fancy bowls.

So far the wedding planning is on hold until we find a reception venue. arg.

Oklahoma wedding fun

Good weddings in Oklahoma are hard to come by. Thank you mom for giving my the money and budget. She is awesome. So, I do think I have officially decided that we are going to use the Myriad Gardens and going to get married on the Water Stage. The stage has been updated since this photo and has built in chairs that seat 210 in place of the cement benches. Also, they are going to refinish the stage. So, as long as the weather permits, which there is never a guarantee on any kind of weather in Oklahoma, the wedding will be here. The reception is another story, still looking in the downtown OKC area. And, there is no date set as of yet, March 27 or April 3?

But, I do know what the wedding colors will be. Thank you paint swatches. This is pretty close, the colors may vary ever so slightly with different hues.Sort of a warm limey olive green or an apple green, dark warm gray or maybe a slate gray, and light pink, breast cancer awareness style. Really, the I'm not so sure about the hue of each one. After I chose the main colors gray and pink with green accents, I then found out that my Mom's wedding colors were green and pink, so hurrah, good choices Mom. I want my bridesmaid dresses to be gray. Maybe with green shoes. And, then I really like the pink ranunculus with green in the middle. And the green ones are pretty awesome, I have to admit.And, I also think wheatgrass centerpieces would be really cool. Probably with rectangular low white or gray vases though. Okay, enough for today.

Wedding Venues Round II

So, the Skirvin was okay, I had my sister with me who has taken photos for them so they offered me $2,000 off and gave me a free ashtray with candy in it from B.C. Clarks. Ha. Still, $8,000 for just the reception is too much money.

Myriad Gardens went well, I just have too many guests to do an inside wedding in the garden, though I could do an outside wedding. The only problem with that is that Oklahoma weather is crazy. Ideally I would like an outside wedding, so cross your fingers. Still looking a venues for the reception, the reception area in the Myriad was pretty awesome for the Crystal Bridge, but not so cool for outside weddings. Sigh, still more places to look for.

Civic Center Music Hall, and
Will Rogers Theatre,
here I come, and I still like the Public Market a lot as well.
