                i changed my centerpieces last minute! i designed these candleholders using vellum paper and folded into rectangles. just printed my logo on 2 sides and table # on the other 2 sides. i'm using electric votive and pillar candles for safety reasons since the holders are made of paper (wouldn't want my projects to burn at the reception from real flames!). plus i heard real candle flames are blown out by wind when you have a beach reception. hopefully it stops raining in cancun soon and i'll still get my beach wedding (i leave in 2 days!). the best thing about these is that it barely takes up any luggage space; i'm packing the candleholders unfolded so it all just fits in a folder and i'll unfold them when i get to mexico. another great thing about this is the price. i already had vellum paper and just printed these at work! wood box was about $5, pack of 12 electric votive candles $8, electric pillar candle $7, red flowers $15 (bought about 3 bunches at michaels and was able to use it for all 5 centerpieces).

                WELCOME CARD/FAVOR
                oot bags were not in my budget and i didn't want to add another suitcase just for these. so i created this card that includes a welcome note, matrix of all my guests arrival/departure dates and times, and reminder of wedding day festivities. sinamay bag is full of my fiances favorite gummy bears.

                hopefully i'll have my photog take better shots of these. please pray for sunny skies in cancun next monday, july 12th, my wedding day! i refuse to have traveled to a different country to have my wedding in a ball room holler if you have questions :)
                Did you buy everything at Micheals, i love the box.
