The WarLock Wedding: Seating Arrangements

My family can attest to fact that on each of our wedding venue tours, I asked one question...

"Can we bring in different chairs?"

I suppose it won't surprise my readers that my dare-to-dream wedding fantasies have centered around furniture. I envision an autumn evening, dark flowers, flickering candlelight, and a room full of graceful golden chairs.


Where slipcovered conference chairs merely add bulk, these chairs are an airy complement to my elegant (and slightly gothic) theme. However, Chiavari chairs can be an expensive rental- and I'd never choose chairs over the guests sitting in them!


Doesn't it seem fateful, then, that the venue we've selected already has hundreds of gold chiavari chairs at the ready? Meant to be!


PS: For those of you wondering, "WarLock" is a combination of our last names (Adam Wargacki & Elizabeth Lockhart). In my opinion, it's another thing that's meant to be, but for some crazy reason Adam seems reluctant to use WarLock as our married name...

I would be the same way! Those white folding plastic chairs just aren't the same. How lucky that they have them already!

Will you be posting dress pictures, or does Adam read the blog?

Elizabeth said...

Maggie... I'm keeping the dress a secret until the big day! Adam won't even see it until I'm walking down the aisle :D

If the chairs are gold... does that mean it's one of your accent colors? Basically TELL ME YOUR COLORS WOMAN!

Funny...I wanted a combo married name too, but my honey wasn't going for it either. Delmellis...it would have been perfect. He thinks it sounds silly, I think it's charmingly off beat. Stupid guys.

What's the decision then, keeping your name or changing it? And I'm so disappointed that we don't get to see the dress...maybe potential dresses? Dresses that have the features you want? I was looking forward to seeing some DRESSES!!!

Elizabeth said...

Becca... I haven't decided yet! I'm waiting to meet with a florist, because the colors will definitely depend on what flowers I can get in Autumn!

Jess... I like it! What's with these guys?? I haven't made my decision about my name yet, but to be honest... I like it the way it is. As for dresses, don't worry, I promise to post lots that are not the real thing!!

ohmygod! warlock would be the coolest name ever! my last name is "despot" and if you don't know, it's also the word for "tyrannical ruler." my fiancé has asked me before if i'd consider keeping my name and him taking it. i think he was only half-joking though.

and the look already sounds gorgeous! all those golden chairs?! and "an autumn evening, dark flowers, flickering candlelight." this already sounds like my own dream wedding :)
