            Thanks everyone for the advice and feedback :) I've got a few other DIY ideas that I'll try to get done and post in the next few weeks.

            For the table info that goes around the umbrella, I use a design program called InDesign that allows me to type along a path. Other alternatives could be to write the guest name/table info using calligraphy. Or perhaps try experimenting in Powerpoint since there is an option to rotate text boxes.

                    i bought these wooden planters at ikea which are about $5 each. i might tie a ribbon around it. i'm not sure if i should paint them white or if i should leave them raw for a more natural, beachy feel. not sure yet. thoughts?

                    since real sea fans won't pass through customs i'm going to buy artificial ones and maybe paint them or leave as is since red is one of wedding colors.
