. . . and maybe a few more photos of things you haven't seen yet. But I pledge, I guarantee, I swear, I pinky promise . . . this is the last wedding post you will have to trudge through! (At least until the professional photos arrive!)
She wanted the cake to mimic her dress. Ruffly.
Doilies were laid out on all the tables. And we used our ratty old suitcases everywhere we could.
I'm a stickler on cutting threads when I sew, but we wanted the banners to show the torn edges. Just maybe not this much!
Never got a photo of the complete favor table but I'll sneak one in when the photos arrive.
We made 4 kinds of cookies and stacked them in the suitcases so pretty. (no, the sack of shredded paper doesn't belong in there) The kolaches were snarfed up quickly!
The simple props were a big hit and we got some way too funny poses! After a few drinks and a few dances, this was really a fun way to let off some steam. I highly recommend it for any party!
This is such a crappy photo but I wanted to show you what was on the tables during the dance. (gosh, I hope that is not dust but just poor lighting!) The battery tea light was just enough light to make sure you were drinking the right drink and not sticking your finger into someone else's.
And my darling grandkids! (why do they always scrunch up their faces when you tell them to say cheese?) The J-man did a fantastic job as banner bearer and had the best time hanging out with the 'big boys'.
Now, because you have all been so patient with me throughout this summer of wedding planning and then finally the wedding itself, I'm offering a GIVEAWAY!
Two of you will receive mementos of the wedding! Don't worry, I won't send you any leftover cake or any of the bills! Just a little package of anonymous things you can use as you please. If you would like to tell me what you hope you win, I'll take that into consideration too!
The rules (ya know, ya gotta have rules!):
THERE AREN'T ANY RULES!
(cuz I hate rules! and I usually don't follow them anyway!)
JUST LEAVE ME A COMMENT!
But if you want to post it on your sidebar or become a follower or sneak any Butterfinger candy bars from your kids' Halloween bucket and send them to me, I'll love you forever!
Oh, and if you were sweet enough to leave any comments on ANY past wedding post, you get another chance to win for each comment you left! Now, aren't you glad you didn't ignore any of my ramblings about this event?
I've got another big deal coming up in a week that I'm
nervous panicky loosing sleep over planning (that I'll tell you about later), so I won't set a definite date on when I'll choose the winners but it will be as soon as possible. Okay? Get those fingers limbered up and shoot me a comment!
And, as always, thank you for your support.
