Love them! And, sigh, you have the date we wanted; alas, the courthouse isn’t open that day. 😉

Very creative. Did you create the snowflake bellyband yourself and is that a snowflake sticker on the outside? Did you hand make that as well or buy it? I would love to know details. I am doing some black place cards with white snowflakes for someone’s holiday event and am looking for snowflake inspiration!
And can you share where you got the silver wrapping paper—did you have problems with it wrinkling at all?
Hope this is not too many questions! Happy wedding. Thanks!

I love that you used snowflakes! I think its such a nice way to dress up a holiday-type theme.

These are a picture of what I am doing—they are easy to make if you have time on your hands—I cut the place cards by hand from black card stock (though you could buy them too and save LOTS of time), paper punch a white snowflake (or silver with your leftover wrapping paper!), and then do the names in white ink.

They definitely look labor intensive but worth it. They’re gorgeous — you did an amazing job!

Thank you everyone for the comments.
The snowflake bellyband is a piece of snow flake vellum that I got from Hobby Lobby and cut into half inch strips. For the snowflake I got a piece of white glitter paper and used a punch made by martha stewart and use glue dots to attach it all. (I will add links tonight when I get home cuz I am at work now… lol) The silver wrapping paper I got at hobby lobby. I did not have any probles with it wrinkling because it is a thick wrapping paper.
