- Wedding: August 2010
Ok so I have FINALLY come to my last recap.
I wanted to do a recap about all the little details that we talk about on the boards all the time as that is one of my favourite parts of recaps.
Centerpieces and Table numbers: the centerpieces were pink mini calla’s with some curly willow and greenery. Each table featured a different picture of FI and I throughout our relationship.
(All photos by Rachael Dover (my SIL) unless otherwise stated)
Bouquets: Mine was pink mini calla lilies. The girls (I had 3 but I tossed one during the bouquet toss) bouquets were white mini calla’s and white freesias.
I was so happy with how all the flowers turned out. We went with Loblaws (a local grocery store) and they blew me away!

My escort cards – I was going to do something fancy to set up the escort cards… but it was my last project and 2 weeks before the wedding I was over it and just went with laying them out. I still think they look pretty good.
Our engravable signature mat. I am really happy with the way it turned out. It looks classy but still has all of our guests notes on it. And we are excited to put it up in our home. We bought it online at Weddingfavours.ca.

My DIY flip flop basket after many guests had already enjoyed some flip flops. DIY tutorial here.
And now this is my sore subject… the cake. IT MELTED!!!!!! It melted before my SIL could get a good picture of it. So many things went wrong on the wedding day that I didn’t let it bother me at all – but the pictures definitely bother me! The company who made the cake was very sorry and gave us a full refund (even though they said it was the venue’s fault for not storing it properly) when they saw the picture.
My hair and my hair flower: My hair was exactly what I wanted. I must admit I was very picky with the stylist to get it that way but it was perfect and it lasted ALL day!!!!! Thank you to Kathy at Side Street Salon for my hair.
My DIY hair flower was the perfect accent for my hair – my DIY tutorial here.
So even though the rain totally changed our ceremony location an hour before the ceremony was supposed to start,
… and they played the wrong first dance song,
… and my cake melted
… and my bustle broke
our day was beyond perfect. None of those details mattered on the day and I was smiling ear to ear ALL day. We had such a wonderful day and I hope that all you bees have as wonderful a day as we did!!!
