Ooh I liked our table numbers

@Mrs. Mouse: So far my favourite detail is my royal blue shoes with the matching purple bridesmaid shoes (the ones causing my drama). I adore them, they’re gorgeous and exactly what I envisioned (for about 1/10th the price)

My favorite detail was my shoes. From the very beginning of planning, I knew I wanted to wear chucks, and as planning evolved, I just knew they had to be leopard print. I mean, we got married at the zoo, it made perfect sense! It was probably one of the best decisions I made, and I just love the pictures! (and yes, the guys had zebra print Nikes) 🙂

We’re really focused on making our wedding day pretty and personal with the little details (: We’ve been collecting milk glass and pink depression glass for two years so far. Etsy has been our best friend in getting personalized items and vintage pieces. One of my favourite things we’ve purchased so far is our ring pillow. The calendar square is from a vintage tea towel and the Etsy seller, Giggle Room, embroidered a heart around our wedding date, Saturday June 14th. I think it’ll add a sweet touch to our ring warming ceremony.

Our flowers was my absolute favoritest.

Oh, that’s a tough one. I tried to incorporate little personalized pieces throughout (thanks for that Etsy!). We have awesome favors and favor bags that tie into my FI’s country. We have personalized cake toppers that I am just smitten with.
Though one of my favorites is our alternative guest book. I figured an actual book wouldn’t get looked at, so I wanted something meaningful that could be displayed. I love maps, and we’re long distance, so I had an awesome seller on Etsy design and print this for guests to sign, and it’s perfect.

My homemade veil was my favorite detail. I really wanted a French silk tulle veil but because of a volcano affecting shipments from Europe and the royal wedding raising demand, the veil I ordered didn’t make it in time for my wedding. The day before my wedding I was forced to improvise and make my own. I ended up loving it so much.

Mine was my bouquet.

My granny left me her stash of buttons and lace trim after she passed. It was such a special way to include her in our day while also reflecting my love of sewing.

I have to say my favorite was feeling my absolute most beautiful ever!

My favorite detail would be the birds nests in our centerpieces. I just love all of the little flowers and how everything seems to work so well together. They were a last minute spur of the moment decision, but I think they completely embodied the feel I was going for.

- Wedding: November 2012 - Oak Tree Manor
Oh man, it’s hard to choose just one! But if I have to, I guess my most favorite detail was our centerpieces. I love scavenging antique shops and thrift stores for odds and ends, and while we were engaged I amassed a pretty decent collection of glass vases and bottles. I found some cool old books, too, and the vintage-inspired glassware – paired with the books and our amazing florist’s handiwork – turned out even better than I imagined.

I can’t decide between our gorgeous cake that tasted as amazing as it looked, or the Tiffany Wisteria stained glass window that was the backdrop for our ceremony!
