ha ha. I can imagine that after you picked up the twigs, it would look like a "branch crime scene". At least your neighbors were nice about it. I can't imagine the conversation with mine if I hadn't used a drop cloth. At least I was spraying French flower buckets in a green shade, right? ha.

I did about 10 mock ups of my tables. I had to do that because I needed them perfect, so I could tell my friends how to set them up. That was one thing I didn't think about, having our seating outside - all that stuff needed to be done while we were getting married! I couldn't set it up the night before, it was outside. That all had to be pawned off on willing friends. So, I don't think you're even remotely crazy setting it up on your floor to check out the layout! You'd be crazy if you didn't!

BTW, I love that your husband picked out the dragonfly. That is cute!

Exactly, Mar!  I couldn't be there to help set up, either.  Retroeva and our friend did almost all of our setup.  Ours wasn't outside, but we didn't have access to the building until we were walking down the aisle, which obviously clashed.  Everyone should hire retroeva (she'll kill me for saying that! Cheesy).  She was my sanity.

I absolutely love this idea! What a fantastic and whimsical touch! And, to be honest, the dragonfly is my favorite Wink  I'd have to sneak a frog in there somewhere, too...

Thanks, ADD! Smiley

We had a hummingbird somewhere, too.  I don't know where he wandered off to though. Cheesy

I love this. Since I've been married 21 years I doubt if I'll need to use it for a wedding(  Roll Eyes Huh ), but I think they would look very cool on a shelf.

Thanks, guys!  They definitely didn't cost me an arm & a leg!  I love how they turned out.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Fantastic!  You picked colors that a lesser crafter may have had difficulty keeping elegant and classy (I've the black/white/red bride's maid's dress to prove it)!  You've inspired me to do something similar with the lovely branches that fall off my curly willow tree that I can't stand to put in the yard debris recycling.  With Halloween right around the corner, mine might be bats, though!
