I love the idea of doing a candy buffet. So we are going to make this our favors to our guests. We are going to have some sort of bag or box with a sticker or stamp to make it more personal. Here are the vases and scoops (thanks for selling the scoops VA09) for my sweet treat candy buffet!!
We have two of both big containers and a few more scoops.
The Real Thing =)
Credit goes to AshleyP she had this fabulous idea to set out anni cards on each table and instructions to have our guests write us notes for the future. I love this idea. My MOH will seal them up and then we will keep them until our first anniversary.
Here is what the instruction sign will say:
"Please take a moment to write us a note in our anniversary card. Your table number represents how many years in the future the card will be opened. -Mr. and Mrs. Walsh"
Pros: The final product
Paper Ceremony Flowers
I was brainstorming theme ideas and I got inspired by a fellow PWer who made the most gorgeous coffee filter flowers. So I decided that I am going to go with an all paper flower wedding, paper centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, pomanders, invitations, and all over decor. I love the idea because April is a really springy time of the year. Also I love that paper flowers will be unique and different but still elegant and beautiful. I have a year (and 3 days) to pull it off so as long as I get started early I believe that the undertaking of making thousands of paper flowers won't be too bad. I think the result will be very worth it.
Here are some of my inspirations... I will update with my own trials when I do them.
I love these for the colors. I think they would look great in a bouquet, boutinneer, corsage, or just scattered down the isle or on the tables.
I would love to wear something like this in my hair or have them decorate my card box or wish tree. Or I could go big and hang them on the walls or from the celing.
These would make gorgeous bouquets!!!
I love the idea of something like this as the big alter pieces or as centerpieces or... =) options are endless.
I love how dainty and beautiful this is!!
So gorgeous and SUPER EASY!
Can you say wish tree?
Another beautiful example of paper flowers.
I love love love these.
How cute for favors!!
My origami flowers. I think I will use them for pomaders and possibly place cards. They take quite a while to make but I think they are so fun and gorgeous!!
These are all of the tissue paper flowers. I love them but they are ultra fragile so I am not quite sure how I will store them once I start mass producing. But I am thinking of using a combination of tissue paper and crepe paper flowers for my bouquets and boutineers.
These are my crepe paper flowers. I know they are the wrong colors, but it was just a trial from a kit. I love them, so I will use white and blue crepe paper instead. These belong in my bouquet and possibly centerpieces. I haven't quite figured those out yet.
MY DRESS!!!! La Sposa Galilea
On my wedding day =)
My amazing bustle!
EDIT: I picked up MY real dress on August 28th. I love love love love it all over again. I can't wait to wear it in 7 1/2 months =)
I was so excited... can you tell?
Auntie Sheri's Reaction (she cried awwww)
Mom was so stoked.
I fell in love on my first day of shopping. It was absolutely everything I had ever imagined and more. Plus there was no way my sisters, mom, or cousin was going to let me leave there without ordering it. I can't believe I have to wait till August to get it again. I am seriously in love!!!
My beautiful band..
Here are some FUN ring shots!
We are getting married April 17th, 2010 at the Admiral Kidd Club in San Diego, CA. It is on the Anti-Submarine base on the bay. It is sooo beautiful. Our ceremony and reception are at this location. We will get married on a really cute little lawn with a cement isle that drops off into the bay water. There will be ships passing by, the city skyline in the background, and the sunset as well. We are getting married around 5 pm and our ceremony is a stone's throw away. It is absolutely everything and more than I ever dreamed!!
Here is our wedding at the Admiral Kidd Catering and Conference Center. Best Location EVER! =)
