You know those pinterest-worthy brides who are ALL about the details in their wedding? They spend countless hours working on tiny little things that might not even be remembered later. Well, that wasn’t me. Real talk. Guests are going to remember three things: food, booze, and the music. So I didn’t fret too much over the tiny things.
But I did eat Chick-fil-A.
Cake: I remember that this cake had buttercream frosting. And it tasted good, because that’s what matters. I asked for it to have a black ribbon on each tier and asked our florist to add some flowers to it.
Our florist also did all of the centerpieces. I could have been more of a DIY bride, but when someone else offers to “rent” them for less than materials would have cost me, I whole-heartedly agree.
Instead of favors, we opted for a candy buffet. Because who doesn’t like candy? I bought a few containers, scoops, treat bags, and round labels. I was pretty proud of those labels, because I made them without Tim’s help.
Cocktail napkins: Ordered from the knot, because it was easiest.
Our guest book was one of my favorite details of the wedding. I’d bought a wooden monogram off etsy and spray painted it white and everyone got to sign it.
