    My FI and I went to IKEA today to pick up some more of the photo frames that we are using to make the picture luminars....he hates this place so that was all I was expecting to get there....I was wrong!

    We were able to get sheer panel drapes in the perfect color of pink/fushia which I am going to cut down and use as chair bows and table runners. They were a great price of 8.99 for 2 pannels which I figure will make 6 chair bows per package. (I posted the info for the place where I got our black table cloths in an earlier post.) We also found these really cool frosted candle holders that we put our monogram on using clear lables from staples. These were 12.99 each. We are trying to minimize the amount of flowers we need to pay for since they are expencive and not that origional.

    My FI wanted to put this all together tonight to see what it would like. SO CUTE (him and the table!) Here are some pictures

      I really like the contrast of the black and fuscia. What a great deal on the panels! I love a great deal! The luminary photo frames are really cute too....I like how they glow in a sepia color.

      A couple of questions for you:

      1. Are you putting photos of you and your FI in the frames? Or, photos of your guests/family, or both?
      2. How do you plan to transport the glass candle holders to Mexico?
      3. How many guests are you expecting? (I'm sure you've mentioned this piece of info somewhere else)

      I've been meaning to go to Ikea to look for bar table centerpiece ideas. Thanks for making want to go NOW!

      PS. you're lucky to have a FI who is interested (and helpful) in the way the table looks!!

        First I should tell you that it is super hard to get pictures to turn out of candle things and make them show the colors and how they look in real life...

        the photo frames have pictures of my FI and I with our guest through out our lives - like I have one that is for my parents of pictures of them and me from baby to present time - I am thinking guests can take theirs home (one per family) as a little gift after the wedding. There might be some pictures of my FI and I only but those are not the focus. The pictures are printed in black and white - sepia would work too depending on your color scheme.

        We are going to Cabo at the end of Febuary to do our final site visit and we asked the WC at the hilton if she could keep some items for us until the wedding. My FI has gotten a little carried away with the "some items" idea but he seems to think we will be able to pack them in an old suitcase or something with a lot of bubble wrap- this is going to be interesting!

        We are expecting 30 adults and 8 children at the most - we have yet to send out our invites so no one knows for sure. Currently we know that 10 adults and 4 kids have purchased their plane tickets. I have decided that if that is all that ends up coming we will still have one heck of a good time!

          I love this forum! it is so nice to have people sharing ideas. I love the idea of the photoframes with pics of the guests to take home. What a great suv.

          That's great that you're going to be able to bring a load of wedding stuff with you in Feb. to leave at the Hilton. I wish so much that I could do one more trip down there before my wedding.

          Your wedding is going to be amazing and your guests are going to have such a great time!

          Thank you for sharing!

            OK Sarah, aka Martha Stewart- your tables look totally awesome! I love the black and pink together and the candle holders are so pretty, I know things don't always photograph well, but I can tell this is going to look really nice! Great job

              Thanks, I am glad you like it. My color is actually a fushia or dark pink color with orange as an accent color. The photo looks a little on the red side but I think this is just since it is difficult to photograph with the lights off and only the candles as lighting. Red would look great too.

              Pink - how lovely. Pink is such a romantic I think.
              You are a Martha Stewart bride Sarah! LOL

              Sarah those turned out perfect. I keep telling my grandma we are going to IKEA when I go to CA in April...now I really have to go. Maybe I will just go before I head out there and take an extra suitcase...you have inspired us all Sarah.

                Sarah, it turned out really well, great job. Did you also see the small frosted tealight holders? You can always put a few of those candles around your cake..
