We Start Today: Reception Details

I shared our ceremony details in an earlier post and now it’s time to take a look at our reception details! Cocktail hour was coming to a close and our guests were ready to head into the theater. But before they went in they had to grab their “ticket” escort cards.

Our escort cards were placed on my DIY zig zag holders. They surrounded a “Will Call” sign telling guests to pick up their ticket to find their table.


A different view of our escort cards on their holders.

After our guests picked up their ticket they headed into the theater. When they looked to the left they saw our custom wine favors on display.


Our custom red and white wine.



When our guests entered the theater this is what they saw.


Our cake table!

We had two different kinds of centerpieces. Some tables had three tall vases with white tulips, orange gerbera daisies and green “buttons.” I don’t know the technical name for the button ones…


When our guests found their table they saw our tic tac place cards. Each guests name was on their tic tac container.


Our kitties who were back in New York even had their own tic tac place cards which were displayed at our sweetheart table.

Our vintage Barbie and Ken cake topper.


And finally our kids bags which were a huge hit with the kids and their parents!

    Love it! My main color is orange too. Where did you get the wine favors? I just bought the cake topper ornaments from eBay. So happy I saw this post. How did you paint it?

    @D, Guest Thanks! My Dad provided us with the wine favors and Mr. Castle designed the labels. For the cake topper my Mother in law bought some craft paint from Michaels to paint the bow tie orange. Glad to see another Orange loving bride 🙂
