Our colors are yellow, green and white (All varying shades) with a golf theme (FI is a golf pro).
Out of Town Bags:
We only have a few out of town guests so I decided it would be very nice to provide them with these bags since they will be staying in the hotel for 2 or 3 days. We're very grateful and thankful that they chose to spend extra money to come and vist us in this economy.
I put the following in the bags:
- Snack size- Snickers, M&M (plain & peanut), Twix, Skittles, Starburst
- 2 bags of snack sized chips
- 1 zip lock bag of mixed nuts
- 2 bottles of water
- granola bar
- snack size cookies
- snack size pretzels
- travel size sunscreen
- golf themed Tervis Tumbler
Flowers & Centerpieces:
The flowers will be yellow roses, white dendrobium orchids, and green cymbidum orchids.
The placecard holders:
Votive candles fo the table:
This was going to be a DIY project, but it just didn't look right so i purchased the Tees and once i get them in i'll update the picture with the finished project.
Yey!!! The tees came in!!! Here is my mock-up of the new and improved votives!
Other Misc. decorations:
&nbs p; IN ACTION:
Buttercream icing: one layer was chocolate with vanilla creme, next layer was vanilla with buttercream filling, and the other was chocolate with raspberry filling.
This was an after thought and also another DIY project. It's short, sweet and to the point! I actually like how simple but classy they came out.
Front & Back
Tears of Joy tissues:
I know this isn't the most important thing to do, but I it done by a few other PWers and thought they were a great little touch. This was so easy and probably cost $5.
The programs and tear of joy tissues will be displayed in these baskets I fond at Michaels.
I couldn't see spending too much money on this so i made it myself. I bought the candles & hurricane vases at Micheals. I think total it cost under $20. I had extra ribbon from the programs and the green paint from the totes.
Our Guest Book
I am most proud of this DIY!!! I made a scrapbook type of guest book with pictures of the two of us growing up, 3 pages for each of us and our families, 5 pages of us with all of our good friends and fun times we've had, then 2 pages devoted to just pictures of us as a couple and the last page has pictures of our dog. The right side pages have the pictures on it and the left were left blank with the header on the page "Notes for the Newlyweds" for people to sign. The best part is, that EVERYONE that will be at the wedding will have a picture in the book!!!
I used Picaboo and it turned out great!!!! I will for sure be doing more of these books.
Love this page:
Our toasting flutes:
I got these at WeddingStar.com. One says "Bride" and the other says "Groom" Our date is engraved on the back of each. They are really pretty and I can't wait to use them!
It's from David's Bridle #V9409. This isn't a great picture because it's not tied properly and there were still pins in it for the alterations but you get the idea.
For the ceremony- (nine west- i can't remember the name but they were on clearance for $30).
For the reception- minus the spikes. 8-)
