The Little Things {Wedding Wednesday}

{Place Cards}
The place cards were picked to match the invitations and the table numbers matched the place cards.  I loved the ribbon on the table numbers.

{Entrance Table}
We had this long table at the entrance of the ballroom with plenty of little touches on them.
Florals to match the centerpieces, guest book (more below), a few signs, etc.
In the middle of the table (the gold plate) were hearts with "C & D" on them for people to write marriage and travel advice to us.
They were placed in the golden carriage.
 

{Guest Book}
I made our guest book on snap fish out of our engagement photos, leaving plenty of open room for guests to sign.  We also had a nice feather pen.  It makes for a great coffee table book to flip through every now and then.

 {Menu Cards}
I love how a menu card adds to a place setting; A reception is the first time you can show off your new monogram so of course we had that at the top.
Derek and I also had some special touches at our tables like the Mr. & Mrs. forks.

{Flip Flop Basket}
One of the first things I look for at a wedding is for sure a wedding basket!
This girl does not keep her heels on all night so I knew this was a definite for our wedding.
I purchased a bunch of flip flops in our wedding colors from Old Navy in early spring before they got over picked for the season.  I tied the ribbon and a size on them early on and then just had to take the box to the venue the week before.
  
{Ceremony Extras}
At the entrance of the church we had bubbles as well as cute DIY tissue packs that I made for anyone who wanted them


 {Cigar Bar}
The ballroom connected to the gardens so we had access to them all night.  There was a little cigar bar set up for the gentlemen with personalized matches, cigar cutters, ash trays, mints and plenty of cigars.  A custom sign as well.

{Home Touches}
People were in and out of our house all weekend - we had friends stay Thursday, the bridesmaids stayed Friday and we had a late lunch and hangout on Sunday so I wanted a couple little touches.

{Mimosa Bar + Getting Ready}
Who doesn't love a mimosa bar?! Especially on wedding day.  We had a few variety of juices and plenty of champagne. 
In addition to my parents' house looking fabulous; My mom had cute little touches all over.

{Groom's Cake]
Okay, so not part of the wedding but I couldn't not share.  I love love love cake, Derek not so much but I knew from the start I was doing him a great groom's cake that he'd love. They were everything I wanted and more! The bakery accidentally put the Yankees symbol on the baseball cake instead of the Mets but I didn't care, they looked fabulous, it was a funny story and I was getting married the next day!


This post was getting a little lengthy so I decided to save the ladies room baskets and bridesmaid survival kits how-to's for another day.  Keep an eye out for that in the upcoming weeks or so.

  10. It's such a good idea to decorate your home as well! I may have to do that. I'm still trying to figure out what kind of grooms cake to have, the ones you got are so cool!

    Thanks for linking-up with us today!

  11. I love your groom's cakes (even though it had the wrong logo!!). Your long entrance table looked so pretty. We did the same thing with the engagement photos as the guest book, and it makes it even more fun to look back on :)
