babycakes- congrats!! i checked out your wedding page and your hall does remind me of our place!
the things are indeed for sale, where are you located? i'm not sure how well the glass things would ship- and they are heavy! was there anything else you were interested in? i did talk to my sister about the shrug and she said that it would be difficult to do without being able to take her own measurements and have you try it on. sorry!
let's see- as for advice... do what you like! there is so much pressure when you have a wedding from other people to do what is "acceptable" or predictable. don't let other people's ideas influence you too much. also, if you are planning on crafting a lot- don't wait!! some things take more time than you think they will (martha poufs for example) and you don't want to have to give up something because you didn't have time to finish it all. also, try to get helpers! try to have a craft day and have friends/family over to help craft!
hope that helps! sorry it took me awhile to get back to you- i don't normally check this board too often anymore!
you can pm me with any other questions you might have though!
