Calling all Nicholas Sparks lovers!!!

Ok ladies, our reception centerpieces are themed, not color coordinated. Our theme is the Nicholas Sparks movies, specifically-

The notebook

A walk to remember

The choice

Message in a bottle

The best of me

The lucky one

Safe Haven

Each table will be a different movie, so I need centerpiece decor ideas!! Each table will have votive candles, and 3 quotes from the movie/book that we pick out that is that specific table. So safe haven will be one table, the notebook will be another,etc etc. Nicholas sparks movies is one thing we LOVE together, and the notebook is kinda our story. (Met as teens, had a crazy summer of being in love and best friends and then we lost touch for 8 years, and here we are again!) So we definitely wanted to incorporate that into our wedding. So give me some ideas!!! Smiley smile

    Love the Notebook! First thing that comes to mind for me as a centerpiece would be to incorporate a stack of unopened letters bound in twine.

    ETA: maybe place the letters on top of a notebook and have a small duck figurine as well Smiley smile

    These are those books that those really bad cheesy movies are from? Why would you want to base your wedding off this tripe?

    Notice I said like the movie. Not exactly the same story line. No, we lost touch and both were married previously, both are now divorced and reconnected. That's what I meant by it's kinda like our story.

    This is adorable!

    Walk to remember: Stars, astronomy stuff, telescope, etc.

    Notebook: Swans, letters, ferris wheel

    The Lucky One: Dogs, military, dog tags, polaroid picture

    I would pick one pivotal scene from each movie and and recreate a few impressions from that one scene, instead of trying to find something that represents the whole movie.

    For Safe Haven, I'd make the base a yellow plaque of wood. Maybe a model bike included somehow.

    Good grief... Lol. Why does everyone have to critique to death what someone decides to do for their wedding. Lol we love the movies and his books, I'm just looking for ideas for centerpieces

    Haha. Each table will have the printed title from each movie in a frame. Kinda like a table number , but instead a movie title

    She has a point, The last song would be good. Get some sea turtles, Sheet Music, and maybe a few other things to pull it together.

    Because I was a student of LITERATURE and FFS, I would prefer a Great Gatsby theme. Literature this ain't...

    Oh that's actually really cute. Turtles and sheet music.

    And yes, anyone coming to that wedding will get it because he also tied in Nicholas sparks with his proposal. He took me to Southport to see the filming sights of safe haven and proposed on the pier from a walk to remember.
