    It’s adorable!! I particularly like the strands where the hearts are closer together! (Sorry, I know that means more hearts, lol.)

    Love it! But agree with pp, fill in the spaces with a few hearts and it’s perfect!

    I love it!!!  So cute!  (I made about 500 meters of paper dot garlands for our wedding so I feel your pain!)

    @brokeninnj:  all you need is paper, a punch, floss / fishing line, glue dots, and TIME. I bet you can do it!

    I voted for “not my favorite,” but hear me out: I love the idea.  I think there are too many colors used.  I think it might look better to simplify the color scheme and maybe use two or three colors and maybe some light and darker ones of the colors.

    But I do really like the idea.

    @LittleCricket:  +1 on the same color scheme. Also, what is the aesthetic of your wedding? I think that might help to know for a fully honest opinion.

    I love the heart garland. I’m not crazy about Crayola colors, and I think it’s super cute anyway. Smile

    @arielmerms:  I really like it, and all the colors.  I made one out of just ivory paper for the back of our head table where I and FI will sit (there’s a weird space there, hard to explain).  But if it were for photos, color is the way to go.  

    Since it outdoors, I would suggest a weight on the bottom to keep it from flying around/getting tangled.  Or, tying it on both ends.  A large glass bead(s) would do the trick.
