We have a tentative hold on the Grand Concourse for my birthday next year, YAY!
Instead of doing practical things to get us ready to sign a contract, like confirming the date works for family and doing a final budget projection with their rates, I’m daydreaming about what this theoretical venue means for our wedding.
Now, I only took two art history classes in college, and neither of them covered the late 19th and early 20th centuries, but I think just from looking that the place has art nouveau design elements. [People who know can look at my blurry photo and tell me if I am way off base.]
So of course I start thinking about how we could have art nouveau invitations! Oh shit, weren’t invitations on our “bare bones” column in the budget? We’re we basically planning on printing our names and vital information on plain cardstock and sending them in the mail? Why did I have to go get IDEAS!?
Well then I Bing imaged searched “art nouveau” and found this beauty on DeviantArt. And it’s under a Creative Commons license, so we could theoretically put it on our home-printed invitations. Woo!
