3D printed TARDIS by boyfriend and TARDIS engagement ring = upgrade to fiance’ status.
------ Of course this sets the theme for the Wedding and Reception:
My thoughts thus far for wedding and reception — soooo up to suggestions!
Small intimate wedding is my wish (would really like to have in my son’s home where we live with 2 of my sons) followed by a larger reception later that day (preferably next day)…very informal reception as we’re all jeans and t-shirts kind of people (lots of Geeks & Whovians, including in-laws)
I am not the type that would make a bunch of things and throw them out…so useful afterwards is definitely a consideration.
WEDDING CAKE – TARDIS – or – would something else be better a huge sheet cake with a “scene” either 3D printed or laser cut outs on the cake…maybe a “Philip & Sharon” cut out of blue acrylic that would be above the cake? (and is it guy name first and then girl, reverse, or either?)
TRADITIONAL CAKE TOPPERS — Dr Who themed…or our names or Mr & Mrs … like you would have a stick down into the cake – ideas? (thinking cheesecakes at wedding with traditional cake topper style and more Dr Who style at reception with regular cake)
INVITATIONS: Thinking TARDIS – our last name will be (spelled differently) — so that open on the TARDIS invitation = submliminal messages… Could be laser cut (have not tried cardstock yet) or cut on my Silhouette Cameo if the Glowforge is too busy.
What other types of decorations on the Cake or Food tables would you suggest? Thinking edge lit acrylic TARDIS (or k-9, etc.) centerpieces (if they don’t get in the way of playing games)
Guest gift (totally optional)…Thinking a tile coaster with a TARDIS --whatever it is would have to be SUPER SIMPLE and inexpensive because he thinks his relatives could number 200 and I’m desperately trying to keep expenses down (thus making things myself…and not sure how many of extended family are Whovians) … we need to pay for a honeymoon, and should be ordering my Tesla Model 3 as soon as I get a perm job (contractor for 3 years now; going to actively look for perm). I just saw the thread about the tiles…so we bought a dozen today to try…thanks for the tips!
We are both adults so paying for this wedding ourselves…hate to pay for a venue but with the number of potential guests, don’t think there is a choice there…but need to find one that will let us decorate as we wish and bring in our own food. Thinking a taco bar would be easiest and least expensive to do. Again would have to think decorations…
Thinking if we get a place we can stay at for hours…we could bring table top games…thinking most of people would dwindle down basically to friends at that point (but could have them out from the get go)
---- I have a Dr Who Yahtzee, Dr Who Flux, Big Bang Theory Clue, Pokemon Trading Game (have son into that) …and we could make: TARDIS jenga style, Dice tower maybe a TARDIS style…and ??
Could change it where wedding is larger and smaller reception for friends and close family … but my fiance’ is very very quiet person in a group … so trying to figure out best way to make him comfortable … even though 90% attending will be his family.
TLDR version: Dr Who Themed wedding/reception: what are your ideas?
Pictures help a lot…even seeing all the things you have created that ARE Dr Who or could be ideas of other things that could in turn be made into Dr Who theme are welcome!! Date? Open … but it will be about 9 months from now-ish…
Could I wear the Glowforge out in that time???
Off to start working on that presentation I have Wednesday at work for the technology club on how to use the Glowforge & 3D printing in your ‘home life’ (which now I am going to see about cutting some Dr Who items) … and then Maker Faire items to show off…
Thank you everyone … this is a fantastic group here with lots of creative ideas…and I appreciate any ideas at all.
