My mom actually made the card box.  It turned out so well.  I’m really impressed.  If you would have seen how it started, you would have been worried because I know I was.  The card box was really important because we asked for no gifts.  We were not in need of any house hold essentials.  We just wanted money to put towards our honeymoon.

The lovely guest seating chart that I slaved over that hardly no one used.  We I saw I revised it about 20 times I’m not even kidding.  But honestly the day of, I wasn’t even worried about it.  The chart looked pretty which was all that mattered, ha!

All the gold glass ware and vases on the table were spray painted by most of the bridal party.  I think they turned out pretty good if I do say so myself.

The flowers were bought from costco in bulk.  They consisted of white hydrangeas and light pink roses.  By the time we arrived at the venue, everything went by super quickly.  Honestly if it weren’t for my dad, one of Cameron’s uncles, and my mother in laws friend, the centerpieces would not have been put together.  My flowers were left in the hands of three men.  They were literally taking them out of the plastic bags, cutting the stems with their pocket knifes, and then sorting them in the vase.  I really do think they did a great job.

I believe most of the glassware if from hobby lobby.  All the pink candy was bought from different places.

I seriously got hired the best bakery ever.  During her cake tasting she set out 6 different cake flavors and several different fillings.  One of the cakes she happened to have out was carrot cake.  Cameron and I both don’t even like carrot cake but went ahead and tried it.  It was so good!  I swear she could make any dessert taste good.  She literally is the baker fairy.

  1. Seriously beautiful decor–that centerpiece and the vases and touches of pink…so stunning together! I love your cake and desserts. I wish I would have thought of something to put at each guest’s seat. We didn’t put menus but a little thank you is a good idea…why didn’t I think of that?!

    • Thanks so much! Yes they were! We mod podged the stem of the glass and coated it in glitter. We had to do 3 or so layers for each glass. For the names we used paint markers. I printed out each girls name and cut them all out. I taped it on the inside of the glass and traced each name.
