Time to share all of the little details that I put a lot of thought and hard work in to! Our seating chart was one of the first things our guests saw as they came upstairs. I still love the idea that we came up with:
Our guest book sign in a simple frame from IKEA with one of my favourite milk glass vases.
We didn’t have a slideshow but I did put out a couple baby photos of the two of us.
Our upstairs reception room at the Brock House. We fit the maximum number of people in there that we could—50 people in the main room and six people with a photo booth in a connected room. I loved the fireplaces, the beautiful molding, the chiavari chairs…
We kept the decor very simple with our zinc letters, photo frames and milk glass bud vases.
I wasn’t too concerned about keeping up our purple theme for the flowers in the bud vases, I was more interested in keeping them inexpensive. The day before the wedding my girlfriends and I went to Costco to raid the roses in the flower department. The flowers there are great quality and a great value.
Our bouquets rested in larger vases on the head table.
For the wee ones I left a colouring book with stickers and crayons at their seat.
Our favours of Russian Earl Grey loose leaf tea with homemade shortbread cookies rested on our guests’ bread plates.
Our cake topper was so adorable.
I loved our wedding cake which was exactly as I envisioned.
I gasped when I saw our reception room. It was just as I hoped it would be.
Did your reception space come together just like you imagined it?
