        The brides initial is traditionally first.

        or

        Thanks for all of your help! :)

          OMG these are so beautiful!  Would you mind sharing where you picked up your napkins?

              Does anyone know where you can get the cylinder vases but plastic?? I want to bring glass ones down but figured they will just break and then i'll really be screwed.

                Amazon has vases that collapse.  I'm not sure if these are what you are looking for but totally worth a look.

                  Another option is to check out the outdoor dishware that is on sale everywhere now.  They wouldn't be vases but a lot of the larger glasses work great as vases.  I picked up some at Target for $0.48 on Friday.  I have decided not to use them as I am doing something different for my centrepieces now but they would be perfect for bouquets or another floral arrangement.  The nice thing about this stuff is it is all plastic!!!!

                      I tried that route but everytime I look they never have enough that I need. This little task has become quite a mission.
