We actually officially tied the knot this year, at a small ceremony in the Chicago Cultural Center. We did this because of the wedding budget (and obviously, we're in looove and were already engaged). We had been paying $300 a month for my insurance (got too old to be on my parents' anymore) and $300 a month is a LOT!! Especially when the signing of a piece of paper can eliminate that payment. BUT, I had already begun planning our ceremony for 9.12.2010, so what's a girl to do?? Oh well, we'll just get married twice! Our second wedding & reception will be at a Golf Resort in Illinois. (about 30 minutes Southwest of Chicago)
We have a sunset ceremony, followed by a twilight reception. We're expecting about 200 guests.

I didn't get everything from Etsy, but definitely the majority! Here are some of my very favorites:

Oh I would love to see pictures too!
I'm scouring every website that could potentially have wedding crafts/wedding inspiration and I haven't even considered Etsy!

I added back pictures!! Wink

And thanks everyone!

(P.S... I hope my picture weren't removed due to uncraftiness! Although I consider myself a crafty girl, I'm not really a DIY'er. But I sure do love crafts other people make and sell!!)
