Before we get to the really fun stuff (i.e. the rockin’ reception!!!), I thought I’d show you all a few details from our day. Some of these things I’ve blogged about, and some I haven’t. This Powder Puff has still got some surprises up her sleeve!
My beautiful bouquet. This was a surprise to me on our wedding day, since I had basically given no direction to the florist, just our overall vision. She ran with it and did an absolutely beautiful job!
My shoes. These babies were comfortable at first, but after a few hours of portraits and standing through the ceremony, I was ready for these to be off my feet, STAT! Before our cocktail hour I changed into a pair of super cute flip flops from my bestie, J.Crew.
I love the ring shots that our photographer came up with!
Our Quaker Marriage Certificate that I designed and had printed through Zazzle was a huge hit!
Place cards. These were the bane of my existence in the days leading up to the wedding, not to mention the day of. My anal-retentive self wanted them set up in alphabetical order, but since my bridesmaids and I were the ones frantically doing it, there just wasn’t time. You know what they say about the best laid plans.
I loved how our centerpieces looked. My only beef was that they weren’t as large as I had originally imagined. But what can you do, right? Our table numbers were cute little things courtesy of Martha Stewart.
I love the lineup of the guys’ Oberons.
A little sign I made (inspired by the fabulous Whitney from Darling Dexter) that was hung over our gift table.
One of my favorite items was my great-grandmother’s handkerchief. Mama Powder Puff gave it to me the day before the wedding, and I wrapped it around my bouquet to carry with me.
See it peeking out? With the sweet little pink flowers? My great-grandmother was an AMAZING woman who passed away when I was fifteen years old. It was so special to have something of hers to carry, and I hope to someday give it to my daughter on her wedding day.
