It’s the Little Things

Looking back at all these pictures now 6+ months later, I don’t remember the late nights or the stress of getting it all done… instead I am just so happy with the way everything came together.  All of these little things added something special to our big day. 

Our guestbook

My mom hand painted the tree and our names.  I purchased the canvas and inkpads from Michaels.  This is now hanging in our bedroom.

Our place cards

My mom wrote each place card by hand.  I purchased the basic place card kit from Michaels and glued on pink and red flowers (also from Michaels).

Our table numbers
James designed the table numbers and cut them out of cardstock.  We met in an astronomy class, so he named each table after a constellation.  I purchased the silver ball holders and votives from Michaels.
Our centerpieces
I purchased plain white gift boxes (with lids) from Michaels and covered them in tiffany blue wrapping paper I purchased online.  We put the flowers inside of a fishbowl vase, purchased at Garden Ridge, with water inside of the box.
Our place settings
I created this board to display our table settings.  I purchased the metallic blue hearts on Etsy and the stickers at the top from Michaels.
Our sand ceremony
We chose to do a sand ceremony with our daughter instead of a unity candle.  I purchased the sand online from Amazon, the center vase from Garden Ridge, and the glass cylinders from Target.
I love the huge purple section in the middle :)
Our favors
A local match company, Atlas Match, made these matchbooks with our names & wedding date and filled them with mints.  My dad delivers to them, and they were so great to design these for us.  Everyone loved them.
Our send off
James was such a trooper helping me put these bad boys together.  I purchased the tulle and ribbon from JoAnnes.
Whew.  All the thank you’s have been sent, the pictures have been uploaded (but not printed), I’ve spent a week wrapping it all up here, and it only took me a little over six months.  Now we can move on to all things baby!  And I think it’s about time I baked something yummy… any suggestions?  What are you baking this week?
