Wedding themes kind of developed as we went, rather than starting out with a particular theme. Luckily, they all kind of came together. One major theme was lavender, which made sense since it grows so well on the islands. Our caterer was super awesome, and helped us out with the lavender theme. Without going overboard, they made an awesome blackberry and lavender cobbler and a lavender lemonade for the bar. One of the owners brought lavender from his own yard and placed a sprig of lavender on each napkin. Super sweet! We also made our wedding party bouquets and boutonnieres with flower wire, flower tape, lavender, and twine.
Additionally, music and song lyrics naturally wove their way into our wedding because we are both musicians (Allyson won't admit it, but it's true). One of our readings was a selection of our favorite song lyrics, including lyrics from Bob Dylan, Iron and Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Mumford & Sons, and Led Zeppelin. We also decided to sing and play a song (I've Just Seen a Face by the Beatles) together for our guests. From Etsy, I splurged and bought two items that really pulled the music theme together. 1) Hang tags on which we wrote more love song lyrics and attached them to mason jars. These jars held some of the flowers at each table. 2) Paper hearts cut from vintage sheet music that we spread out on the cake table. We would've placed these more places, but they were blowing away outside.
