FI and I are so extremely lucky to have happy loving families. There is no divorce on either side, our parents and grandparents are all happily together and married celebrating between 30 and 61 years and all the dates inbetween. Because of this we decided to tell them just how much they mean to us and just how inspiring their love really is.

I have put together what im calling our "inspiration table" that will be set up (and decorated) in the reception area right by the bar so no one misses it.

Here are some early shots ive been taking of the photos in frames.

OH its a suprise too for them all. Ive been sneaking about getting all their pics.

Your Love is our inspiration photo 1

Here is how the came out for the wedding. Perfect!

I decided to DIY our table numbers. I wanted to figure out how to use our epics in different ways and corks!

So how I did it......

Photo Portion

1) Chose the photos i wanted out of 269 images :)

2) Went into photo shop and added numbers to the top left or right of each photo, in coordinating colors

3) Put onto USB and went to photo store... got images printed on 4x6 double sided thick photo paper

Cork Stand Portion

1) Organize your corks on the table, and create piles of 9.

2) Using a hot glue gun start by gluing each cork in the middle and push them together creating the base. Base should be 4 wide. Continue gluing, moving onto the 2nd level. Use glue on the bottom and centre and press together, same with the top.

TIP* for the 2 top ones make sure that they fit together at the top without much of a gap so you can slide the table number inbetween.

Our final decision was to go with this one...but honestly I love them ALL!!!
