The Time of Our Lives: Sweet Little Details, Part II

I’ve said before that after the fact, I found that paying attention to all the little details was totally worth it. Even with the craziness of our day (you’d think a table number sign might get overlooked in a hailstorm), our guests made sure to mention to that they loved the favors, or the martinis, or the centerpieces, or even the wine glasses. It meant the world to me.

Here are a few more shots of the details for you””as usual, by the well-loved (by us!) Samantha Warren.

Buckets of flip flops, and evidence that yes, your male guests will sport them too:





Our signature drinks were a big hit. People were drinking our favorite Wild Maine Blueberry Martinis and Dark and Stormys all night.


Our escort cards were CDs – we decided to do a mix of love songs, and asked each member of our bridal party (which included all seven of our siblings), our moms and our dads for their favorites, and compiled them all together with our pick included too. It made for quite an eclectic mix (especially because we didn’t tell them why we wanted their favorite love song when we asked, so a few were caught off guard!), and we loved what it said about us and those we love. From my 13-year old sister’s Natasha Bedingfield tune, to my new favorite “Me and You” by Michael Reno Harris, to the more classic “When A Man Loves a Woman” and “What a Wonderful World”, everyone was represented. We included on the song list who had chosen which song and what their relationship to us is””it was a big hit.




You’re allowed to burn a song seven times when you buy it on iTunes, which made our CD favors cost approximately only $3.

From the iTunes site:
“You shall be authorized to burn an audio play list up to seven times.
You shall be entitled to export, burn (if applicable) or copy (if applicable) products solely for personal, noncommercial use.”

Our wish bowl in action:




Last but not least, the sweetest detail of them all:

Our pretty and delicious cake was courtesy of the European Bakery.



Next time… we take some photos, and hey””didn’t you say there was a storm?

    You’ve got me totally swooning over your details. Like many have said before me, I love the CD cases! Also, asking the wedding party for their favorite songs is brilliant…it almost guarantees that everyone at the wedding will have a song or two that they like on the CD.

    Great job!
