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).
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.
please ignore my dish rag that i used as a napkin for this photo!
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
