#465: oh em gee.

i think i found my centerpiece. mercy me.

step-by-step instructions on once wed. (twice in one day. seriously, emily's awesome.)

imagine all the wonderful table conversations that are waiting to be had around these rock candy (!!!) centerpieces.

"i wonder if this is crystal."
"maybe they're rough cut diamonds."
"i don't know why but i feel like licking one."
"it tastes like candy."

oh. and i've also decided to DIY our guys' bouts.

inspired by the uber crafty chelsea of oh my deer.

p.s. i didn't know i would end up wanting to DIY so much. but with 5 months left, and having seriously caught the crafty bug, i'm more than ok with taking these on. in fact, i'm really excited to have found these projects...projects that will definitely help us make the wedding more "us". the aesthetic as it is right now (aka BLANK) leaves much to be i'm hoping these little handmade bits will infuse a whole lot of us-ness into the day.

it's getting personal.

The garlands are all so pretty too

How fantastic! I have never seen something so beautiful and not obviously edible...your guests will die. Er...ok, they'll live, but they'll be talking about your centerpieces for ages, and how many people can say that?

Also, the piece-y effect of the centerpieces would be a nice complement to garland. You've definitely got the ball rolling! Good luck!
