- Model your save the dates after a slide-rule: ruler on one side, text on the other, like image above.
- Have your photographer set up a photo station with a blackboard, where guests can write messages to take with their photos
- Create your menus using a graph, like the one above: Write your menu choices in the white space between the two lines.
- Model your table numbers after a calculator. Have a calculator drawing framed and placed on each table. Bold or color the numbers of the table. For example, if the table is 19, bold the numbers one and nine on the calculator face.
- Another save the date idea: Custom pencils with your wedding date printed on one, your names on the other, and your website on the third.
- Create your centerpieces using these inexpensive test tube vases from CB2.
- Have Laura Hooper make her signature calligraphy compasses for your escort cards.
- Buy plain white linens for your tables. Write equations on them for a unique and surprising look. Have black markers available for guests to doodle their own on the tables too!
- Model your invitation after a long equation. Have you and your fiance's names and some info about your wedding secretly placed within the equation and then bolded.
- These graph cards from School Locker on Etsy can provide other creative inspiration, for programs or place cards.
- Make sure your venue is sleek and modern, like an all-white loft or science museum
- Incorporate Emerson's "Circles" into your readings or reception. I once read about a wedding totally inspired by this!
- For your thank-you cards, model them around a photo of you and your fiance posed as scientists--with the thick glasses and lab coats!
