After flip flopping on my vase options I finally made the committment and bought "the ones"! They're actually candle holders but I thought they'd make fabulous vases.
I can't wait to see an actual mock-up of my centerpieces with whichever florist I choose!
I originally thought I wanted just two bridesmaids at our wedding - but after giving it some more thought I felt that it would mean more to me if my bff and my sister were "upgraded" to be my Maid and Matron of Honor. So - since I already asked them to be my bridesmaids I thought I'd come up with a cute way to ask them to be my MOH's.
Here are the cards I created for them. All the materials were purchased at the dollar store!
And here are the gifts that I purchased for them (picture frames and potpourri).
In addition to having our fans as favors we will also be doing a cookie bar! My MOH's and I will work at baking lots and lots of mini cookies before the big day and freezing them.
Here's my inspiration:
Since our wedding ceremony is taking place outdoors in the middle of summer I wanted to make sure that my favor would be useful (even if it's thrown away right after the ceremony/reception). And at $0.10 each for these fans I really don't mind (gotta love Craigslist!!)! So, a new DIY project begins. Here are a few pictures of the fans.

After a few trials this is what I've ended up with! I used tissue paper and glue for sort of a "paper mache" look and attached labels. The labels have been stamped with "LOVE."
Here are a few potential "looks" for the big day - now only to get my hair to cooperate and to find someone who can duplicate this at a reasonable price!
First pic is of the lovely Starg8zer - I love her make up and hair. And I love the hair style in the second picture.
So, I know that I want fuschia as the main color for my wedding - but I'm debating between the other secondary colors.
Here are a few inspirational pictures I have found from various sources (please let me know if any of these photos belong to you and I will gladly list you as the source).
The theme colors for the wedding will be: Fuschia, Turquoise, and Green Apple with hints of white!
