Wedding Details I Don't Want To Forget

Friday, September 16, 2016


Well friends, here we are. It's Friday September, 16th and I might be writing my last wedding post. I'm not ready for it to end either...

Today's post will be about small details I don't want to ever forget/things I'm so happy we did. Perhaps I've already talked about them, but maybe I haven't? I've been dragging this thing out for so long I hardly remember anymore.

Let's start with the seating chart.

Instead of having table numbers, we decided to name our tables by places (mostly bars) that were important to us. This little detail gave me a real tickle and I'm so happy it's how we designated our tables.


I was so excited to see what our friends thought of this. The names weren't just important to Chris and I, but we sat people at places we thought they'd enjoy as well. One of the coolest things is that we sat my bridesmaid Kate's parents at a table called Barrymores, and it just so happened that's the place where they got engaged so many years ago. (We had no idea.)

2. Out signature drink, The Harlow.


So Harlow was there with us in spirit. (Or in spirits.)

3. All of our signs.
We moved this from the hotel lobby, to the welcome party, reception, ext. It came everywhere!


I will forever be grateful to my mom's very talented friend Natalie Garden for making us all of our cool artwork (the seating chart, the Harlow, and every single table name sign not pictured.) Natalie created all of it and it turned out wonderful! The Harlow sign will be framed and kept forever. As will everything else...

4. Our globe guestbook.
I most definitely found this idea on Pinterest and I'm so glad we went with it rather than a traditional book. We have globes all over our house so it fits in nicely.


I've had several of you ask about where to find globes like this and I suggest two places. 1. Salvation Army and 2. Goodwill. Or any other thrift store! I think this one is from my great grandpa and it probably came from a garage sale.

5. Our Welcome Bags.
Welcome Bags ARE SO IMPORTANT. Jk, but it feels that way the week before.


My mom made the salty mix and Chris's mom made the sweet mix. My friend Kammie created our welcome programs and Chris ordered the mini Fireballs...  We also put in some wildflower seeds in hopes people would plant them and then NEVER EVER FORGET OUR WEDDING. Missing from the photo is our favorite beef jerky from R & R Meats in Norfolk. It's not photographed because we ate it too fast.

6. Bridesmaid Pajama Sets.


From Love Ophelia and they're the softest, most comfortable robes and shorty sets ever. I can't speak highly enough of this awesome store.

7. Personalized Bridesmaid/Bride Hangers from Delovely Details.


Full discloser- this is not my photo. The photos I took on my iphone did not do the beautiful hangers justice, so I'm waiting to share my actual hangers once I get my professional photos back. Delovely Details did a phenomenal job and I'm so glad I decided to add this fun little detail.

8. Makeup by Brooke Rock and she was simply wonderful. It would be such a treat to have her over every single day to do makeup so I could have eyebrows any time I wanted!


And eyes. And lips. Basically just a face.

The further we get from our wedding, the more and more I'm thankful we hired a videographer. Just one more month and I get to relive the entire thing. We hired Ross Wooten from Kansas City, and no I'm not getting commission for mentioning him, I just like to let people know when I find a cool company that is fairly priced. Did I mention we forget our flowers on the bus from the hotel to the reception and Ross and his crew brought them for us? That's pretty legit.

Don't you worry, I'll share the vid with the world as soon as I get it.

And now.... now we write thank yous. It's taken us two months. Ooof.


Very cool "I Love You a Shit Ton" wooden clip board found here by Darling Savage.

And when we're done with the thank yous, we plan to play with our new book, Our Perfect Marriage.


It's a tongue and cheek workbook that Chris and I get to fill out together and it is hilarious and also quite touching.  It's one of those gifts I know we'll be glad we filled out our first year of marriage because we'll always love to look back on it and laugh.

And that's it. Cheers to Friday.



*that might not be it. I can't let this die.

  6. Wait, so is this my LAST comment ever on DT's last wedding-related post EVER? *sniffles*
    :P

    You sure got an eye for detail, girl, and the globe idea is one I've been eyeing for a while now for our Wedding: What did you have people write on there, places you should visit and/or tips? I'm thinking of doing both :).

    Thanks for sharing! (And you're welcome for us being such a captive audience, haha.)

  9. Getting ex back after a breakup. Am Maria 21 from England,my boyfriend of a year just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity . If you need a spell caster that can cast a spell that truly works, I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.This is his E-mail: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or Add him up on Whats-app: +2348071622464,you can also visit his website:http://unityspelltemple.yolasite.com .

  12. Am so excited to share my testimony of a real spell caster who brought my husband back to me. My husband and I have been married for about 9 yrs now. We were happily married with three kids, 2 boys and a girl. 2 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the Internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Okusu can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Okusu Powerful Love Spell that really works. If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you.

  13. Molly Wyatt from Illinois USA. I'm so full of joy writing this testimony to share with the people out there who must have giving up on hope that "there is no cure for HERPES VIRUS". Once, I was a victim to the oppression of HERPES VIRUS, I was so stigmatized because of this, to an extent I had to stop working. I have visited so many hospitals that I lost numbers of them and all the medical practitioners tell me is "sorry madam, there is no cure for it" or better still, they describe drugs for me to buy and beleieve you me, this drugs are so very expensive and for this reason, I was financially handicap. I had an encounter with Dr Zuma who became a saviour to me from the dreaded virus through the help of a friend of mine (Roseline). Roseline gave me a link to Dr Zuma, giving me assurance that he could cure me of my ailment. I did contacted Dr Zuma, i told him everything because by then, I was down trodden and broken hearted. Dr Zuma felt sorry for me and as such, moved to help me. He promised to prepare a herbal drink for me and then send it to me after which when i get it, I should make use of it as requested of me. I did as instructed and beleieve me dearly beloved, it actually worked out for me. It seemed funny to me because I never beleieved there will be a remedy to such affliction. Today, I am doing wonderfully well, hale and hearty and I am never scared of any kind of sickness no more because I strongly believe Dr Zuma got my back. To those of us who must have been suffering and dying silently from diseases, sickness and viruses like HIV,CANCER,DIABETES,ARTHRITIS and the likes, I have good news for you today, Dr Zuma is reliable and capable of handling such afflictions. Why not give him a trial today by contacting him through his email:drzumaherbalhome@outlook.com or drzumaherbalhome@gmail.com, his web/site http://drzumaherbalhome.wix.com/dr-zuma or call him through his mobile number +2348119007839 and be totally set free from the shackles of virus and diseases
