    Hey! Your wedding looked so beautiful!  I am getting married there Dec. 30/2013 and I noticed that it looks like you had lights under your head table?  Did you have to pay extra for that?  If yes, how much?  I really like how it looks!

      Thank you! I actually didn't even know about the lights until we got there, so we didn't have to pay for them they just did it. Might be worth asking about!

            Okay, I think this is actually my favorite planning thread so far!  You hooked me with the treasure chest, and I've been stalking all of you sellers on etsy  haha.  Where did you get the beach bags?  I absolutely love them!

              I figured I should just start a thread with my goodies, since I'll be going along and wanted to share in case anyone else gets some ideas from my stuff, I figured I post it as I go along.  They'll be lots more to come, as I'm not getting married until January, but here's what we have so far: My Birdesmaid invitation boxes  Just something I pulled together with a little creativity at the local dollarstore.  I really wanted a different and super special way of inviting my girls! BM Boxes.jpg these are just beautiful!!! My Save-the-Dates. I designed these up in Photoshop and then just had them printed on 4" x 6" photos, and attached them to magnets (I cut up self-adhesive biz card magnets from Staples and stuck them on the back).  Ben & Sarah Save The Date 1.30.2013.jpg My self-designed logo (again, Photoshop).  We'll likely use this for some of the tags as well as the mugs I'm going to get screen printed. LOGO-6.jpg My centerpieces *I think*  I saw something really cool this weekend that may make it's way into these plans and flows a bit more of the vintage feel into it, which I'll of course add here if I do!! Again, dollar store cheapy vases and Orchids from Jysk (surprisingly good quality). Pardon the crappy cell phone pic ;).  I think I'll have some scatter gems mixed with seashells around these.  418207_10151351818295702_556685701_23241010_2127310644_n.jpg My card box. I love this one!  I cam across this treasure chest at Jysk for $15 and I just loved it, but I really want some more vintagey" feeling things at the wedding. So, I painted it up and antiqued it.  A very messy but fun process. Treasure Chest.jpg My "vintage" table number photo frames!  Again, a steal at the Dollarama, they are actually $1 plastic frames (which is perfect because they weigh NOTHING for travel).  I spray-painted them (using a spray paint meant for plastic) and then used my same paint/glazing method as I did for the box.  I'm not sure this is my final design for the numbers themselves, but that's what I've come up with so far, that co-ordinates with my other Photoshop designs so far. Table-Numbers-Collage.jpg That's it so far!  I hope to have lots more to show you (lord knows I have a head full of ideas, whether they actually work or not, that's a different story!!)
