I have gabbed about it since forever, but we're (finally) married and I (finally) have pictures to prove it!  Here are things I made...

The invitations:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=240629.msg2649952#msg2649952

The programs, sign, and a bit of the basket I decorated...


The guest"book" table - not quite so crafty, but I decorated it, so... it fits, right? 


Centerpieces (all of the guests' tables had solid-color daisies, this is the head table that had red and white daisies):


Corsages for the moms:


Bouquets and Boutonnieres (as modeled by the wedding party):


Ring pillow (and a closer shot of a butonniere):


Cake "topper", which was made before we decided on the plate-tier cupcake set-up (and my husband getting a napkin to clean up the cake smear - hah!):


Candy Buffet Containers & Candy Buffet:




And the arch! 


What do ya think?

Wow! Congratulations! It seems like you've been on here planning about as long as I was. So, I am excited to get to see your pictures! Everything looks wonderful! The adjective that comes to mind is "SHARP!". I love the red with pops of white, the gerbera daisies and all. The tiered plate stands worked out so well for your purposes. Mine still sit on top of my fridge with plates on them for goodies, fruit and such. So use-able after the wedding! I love that your husband wore a kilt, fantastic! I have to go examine your pics more closely - I am wanting to know what that little pop of red is on your pretty wedding dress. Inquiring minds want to know!

Congrats again! Great job, everything looked lovely and elegant.

Thanks for the comments, ladies Cheesy  You know how to make a gal feel good. 

The pop of red is a little piece of tartan ribbon - the same plaid as my husband's kilt and accessories - that was pinned on using his family's clan crest during the ceremony.  It's a little tradition wherein the bride is presented with the groom's tartan as a way to welcome her into the family... and, to be honest, I intended to take if off after the ceremony so it wasn't all wonky in pictures, but I forgot, and as it turns out it doesn't look horrible in any of the photos.  So, meh.

Heh.  Thanks Cheesy  I was a bit worried about the red and white being a bit christmas-y, but I quite like the end-effect. 

And men in kilts...meeeeoooow! Roll Eyes

Hot, right?  My husband's got two friends who are also Scottish but whose fiances won't allow to wear kilts in their weddings.  I dunno, they're pretty sexy to me.  Wink

Awww so pretty! I like how you did the guestbook table, that's sort of how I was planning to do ours, but yours looks more put-together than ours would have haha.  The tartan piece doesn't look wonky... in fact, I didn't even notice it until Mar mentioned it. But then again, I have a habit of not looking at things closely :/ Your guests must have loved attending your wedding. So great!

Where did you get the arch?  Obviously you decorated it yourself, but did you make it yourself as well? I really want an arch but I really don't want to pay the hundreds of dollars it will take to rent or buy one!
