Ladies...I can't believe it's already around the corner!!! I've been counting down the days until I "made the list" and here it is!
This is what I'm thinking for our altar. It's not perfect because I was trying to recreate it in Hobby Lobby, but it's got large callas, hydrangeas, and twigs coming out of it. It will be real flowers they day of but its a rough draft:
We got this in the mail a few days ago and it made me smile:
Our cake topper from Etsy seller mudcards:
We met at Outback :)
I would like to introduce you to our furry little children :)
Tallee is a lab/retriever mix. I got her in Tallahassee on my way back from my grandmothers house. I stopped at a rest area and there she was just walking around in the grass. I went to say hi and she wouldn't stop following me. A trucker had gotten her as a surprise for his daughter, but when he told the mother, she said to get rid of the dog or don't bother coming home. He told me that if I could guarantee she would be in a good home he would give her to me along with everything he had bought for her. She's my little angel and is so happy to have a sister now and she loves her daddy :) We also happen to share the same birthday!
Tink is a german shepard/siberian husky mix. Her daddy got her in South Florida from a breeder. She is such a little princess and loves the attention. She will snuggle, but only on her own time :) Her and Tallee are inseperable. They are sisters for life. She is turning five years old this December!
Here they are together:
Aren't they adorable?!
I wish they could be a part of our special day, but the venue won't allow it :( I know they will be with us in spirit though the day of!
So the way we designed our favor it serves as the place card for each family/couple/guest as well!!! I feel so crafty!! Our favor is a dice game that we like...it's called Greedy. So it's six small green dice wrapped in a green fabric that is inside a shot glass that we designed (because we collect shot glasses as well from places we go). It could also serve as a votive instead. We spray painted a popsicle stick and tapped it to the inside back of the glass and affixed the printed punch-out that has our monogram and the family/couple/guests name with what table they are at (printed on silver cardstock).
Sounds complicated but it was really quite easy and we love it!
Forgive the frayed edges on the fabric. We will have them finished or use a little bag instead.
