I also used some old calendars to make cute framed 'messages' for various areas around the reception. This one is for the bar, clearly!
We're using mini gumball machines as place cards, aqua for guests, red for the bride and groom's table.
I also bought some plain votive holders from Michaels and added ribbon to them using my awesome Xyron tool! Side note - if you are looking for good votives, Michael's value pack of 24 votives are awesome quality. They burn for over 9 hours!
All of my red ribbon holders are ready to go, also. I am wondering what the heck I will do with all these when the day is over? I may ask people to take them home, because I don't want to sell my hard work!
I also made a pretty cute card box - I will share a how-to later on.
A couple weekends ago, I had a sweet bachelorette party...thanks to tiny ninja Jean - she brought candy necklaces, bracelets, and huge suckers for our night out. I had to set up my camera on the tripod to capture the hawtness....
Oh, and four of us wore tutus and crazy tights. Yes, we are all over 30. Ok, Katie (yellow tutu) isn't...but she's pregnant, so that's close enough!
We went out to dinner and then to the most rad nightclub in Milwaukee, Victors! They know how to treat their VIP ladies.
I didn't drink all of it myself. I think I tried, though!
When we got back, the three remaining chicks decided to play with the camera and tripod for a little while, and we captured so many hilarious and huggy-kissy photos - I love that I set it up before we left.
And the finale - I have no words for this shot!
Too funny. I will hopefully get a couple pics of the wedding up on Sunday, before we leave for Jamaica...I'm setting up my camera/tripod at the reception with a professional backdrop and umbrella lights - so we will have our own little 'photobooth' going on. I can't wait to see the pictures! Have a great weekend and please send me good 'sunny' vibes!
