AGATE/GEODE-A Wedding Theme That Rocks!

Just For Love Photography

Did you collect rocks when you were a child?  The most prized ones were always the ones that had sparkle-or the cut and polished ones.  And you could buy the most amazing little amethyst geodes in the gift shops.  You don’t have to be marrying a geologist (or are one yourself) to incorporate the natural theme of rocks into your wedding!  The swirling design rings of agates and sparkling chunky crystals of geodes can be used as a vibrant color inspiration of blues, pinks, purples, greens or burgundies.  They are great offset with gold and silver.  Let’s explore the ways you can have a rockin’ wedding!

INVITES>>>Give your guests a sneak peak of your wedding theme with your invitations.  The round geode shape frames your text nicely. Shop Minted or Basic Invite, Wedding Paper Divas and be inspired.

And don’t stop there, match your stationery with coordinating place cards, table numbers, programs, menu cards, and wedding stamps.

ACCESSORIES>>>The groom or groomsmen can rock geode print ties, belt buckles, cufflinks, and watches.  The ladies can go casual with fun flip flops, leggings, tanktops, shoes and t-shirts.

DECOR>>>This Marbled Elegance fabric and curtains from Liz Conley can be used as a backdrop or a tablecloth.  She also has invitations, napkins and table runners in the same cream and grey swirls that would look stunning incorporated with gold or silver tabletop items.  These candles and unity candles can add a touch of the theme to your tablescape.

TABLETOP DECOR>>>Luna Bazaar has Capiz glass votive holders in many different colors and price points.  Trimmed in silver or gold, the color options are very evocative of agates and geodes and would look great on a table setting or as wedding favors.  As well, they carry recycled glass napkin rings (3 colors) and floating mercury glass candle holders (6 colors).

 

CAKES>>>Have a look at this collection of Wedding Cakes Inspired by Rocks and Geodes from Mon Cheri Bridal.  All the color combinations for geode and agate cakes that you could ever imagine…

DIY DESSERTS>>>This green agate cheesecake design from Alana Jones-Mann can be done in 10 minutes regardless of skill level.  And her agate sugar cookies would make a great wedding favor packaged in cello and tied with a coordinating ribbon.

 

INSPIRATION>>>Arielle Fera Events styled an absolutely gorgeous Geode Woodland wedding with cool blues. Pearls, Rose Quartz and Gold are this perfect pastel combination featured on Burnett’s Boards.  Have to see Kate Aspen’s super cute A Geode Inspired Wedding on Pi Day (he is my rock-she is my treasure!).  Green Wedding Shoes has featured stylish dark tones complimented by succulents at the Backyard Vow RenewalPurple Geode Jewelry is the inspiration for this Storyboard Wedding.  Also, have a look at Coco & Confetti’s hot pinks and aquas Bohemian Bridal Picnic

NAILS>>>Zazzle has fun nail art & nail wraps in many different geode colors. Dreamtime Creations has all the jewels & crystals you’ll need to create a unique nail look.  Or anything else you may want to embellish.

DRESSES>>This high-tech color changing gown was worn by Claire Danes at the Met Gala.  Usually a bride will wear a agate/geode necklace, earrings, bracelet, hairpin or belt accessory rather than wearing a colored dress.  The bridesmaids can be clothed in different shades from the color of agates that you choose.

Janice is an old soul in the wedding industry. She worked in retail, selling wedding gowns and renting tuxedos. After that she started her own business creating custom wedding favors and artificial flowers, and hiring out as a wedding decorator. In 2000, when the wedding industry was just finding the Internet, Janice started her own theme wedding website, “ASK GINKA”. The successful resource site ran for 10 years until life and kids took her away from devoting enough time to it. Her university background in Clothing & Textiles and Theatre Design was a great foundation for these activities. When it is all put together, Janice has a wide range of knowledge and experience in this industry-and has been married 25+ years to her sweetheart, Mark. This is the first year Janice has been working with Wedding Recycle. She is involved in sales, marketing, writing and event planning, and she is very excited to be back in the wedding industry.
