Our invitations were created for us by my friend Andrew who is a graphic designer. We had them printed through Papyrus. They were printed on Stardream Opal in brown thermography and I attached a Swarovski hot fix crystal in Rose. Our programs were created by www.whiteaisle.com and we assembled them ourselves. I created the personalised menus which I didn't get a picture of and the table names by using Stardream Opal paper that I bought at Paper Source. I created them in Microsoft word since they had a font I loved and then had them printed up at Kinkos. I attached more crystals to the menus and the table name cards. We named all the tables after Canadian cities and had fun facts about the city at the bottom of the menu cards. I bought the crystals in bulk on line from www.hotfixcrystals.com
My MIL bought us our toasting flutes. They're from Vera Wang. I'm not sure what they're called.
Most of my side of the guests consisted of my friends who flew down from various areas of Canada. It was really nice to have so many of them come down and they had a geat time hanging out by the pool the afternoon of the wedding while I slaved away at getting ready. Sitting by a pool in October was a surreal experience for them. Scotts Uncle Pete was quite the dancing machine and danced the night away all with my friends but especially Katie.
I got ready in the bridal suite at the winery while the boys got ready in "the dungeon" which is a tasting room downstairs in the winery.
We decided to use mini maple syrup leaf shaped bottles with maples syrup in them to recognize my home country and our love of all things Autumn. We tied a personalized ribbon around the neck.
We decided to rent specialty linens from Classic Party Rental to use since the ones that were provided were plain white and didn't reach the floor.
For the cocktail hour we used Satin Champagne
We used Dazzle Champagne Gold for the reception
We used a much darker more dramatic color for the tables around the dance floor. They were Dazzle Burgundy Black
