      I found some information on DIY pom poms with cupcake wrappers and thought these were lovely so I wanted to share!

      http://amiragray.blo...e-pom-poms.html

       

      I am all over the place with my centerpieces but one idea I am seriously contemplating is buying a wine bottle for each table with personalized labels that include our names, date ad table number along with wine glasses turned upside down with a flower underneath each one and a candle on top and just decorate it with some shells or shimmery white netting, but who knows I might end up changing my mind.

       

      I'm actually bringing everything with me from California. I have enlisted my fiance, parents and in-laws to help with an extra suitcase if needed. i just don't want to take the chance that things get lost of that my shipment doesn't arrive on time.

                Thank you msvasq! and I am so looking forward to designing my own centerpieces! I have gotten sooo many ideas on pinterest and through Martha Steward's website and have been doing some research as far as where I could buy the items at a discounted price. Thanks so much for sharing the link to that blog, it is much appreciated! Also congrats on winning the destination photo giveaway contest! yay!

                  Hey Sister Brides!

                   

                  So I don't have any pics to share yet (and I probably won't for a while), but I'm going DIY for our centerpieces too. This is my idea:  the main centerpiece is also going to serve as our table number. We're doing a seating chart because we're expecting around 100 people! Anywho, my FI and I are going to take a close-up pic (kinda like the cute ones u see for Save The Dates---kissing, smiling, looking at each other, silly faces, etc.) and for each pose we're going to hold up a number in the middle of a heart (just paper ones that I will make). When we print the pics, everything will be black and white or sepia and only the heart and number will be in color. I'm putting the picture in a cute frame (either plain, classy silver or clear plastic--the old school kind where u can put a pic on each side). So the framed pic will be in the center and we'll just do 2 simple votives with flameless (artificial) candles on both sides. Probably sprinkle some crystals/jewels or even seashells in between the items down the middle of the table. My main pet peeve at weddings is toooooo much clutter on the tables! I hate not having space on the table to put my drink, etc down because there is so much junk on the table! Hope this sparks a little inspiration for someone!

                    My guest favors are going to be little beach frames.  I was actually going to use them for the seating charts but my FI doesn't want us to do seating chart, so I will give them the frame as favors and also a shot glass that says "Love Travels" with a little picture of a suite case and of course our name and wedding date.
