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.

Thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, habits become character, character becomes destiny, you become confused, just be nice.
