I found this awesome deal online, and had to share! I've been thinking about using flowerpots for centerpieces, since the wedding is at a garden club, and found these: http://www.candle4less.com/candles_2/Unscented-Votive-Candles_2/72-Flower-Pot-72-Votive-Candles

72 candles and 72 flowerpot shaped holders for $44...I think I've got enough candles now.  And to think I was worried about the cost of candles...this is a great site.  Hope that it helps someone else.

Those are really cute! I was glad to see they sell them in lesser quantities -- not just in packs of 72! I may be inspired myself...

btw, I like your idea, zeenobia, for a chuppah crocheted by all your friends and family, that's really sweet!

This thread is super cool! My fiance and I have set our wedding date for 10 April 2010 - and this date is approaching fast!
We still haven't found a suitable reception venue yet, but hope to get married in my fiance's church.

I'm busy making some pew decorations for the church and I've started sewing my own wedding dress. I bought some tissue paper and am aiming to make something like this:

I need about 12 wreaths - so that's about 240 paper flowers.

To do (for the moment):
Make ring pillow
Sew garter
Design invites
Make guest book

We've been trying to htink of ideas for our save the dates and I think we just came up with a possibility...turning a photo into a postcard which really all it is is turning it over putting a stamp on the back, addressing it, and writing a message. 

I was wondering if anyone knew an application I could use to write the actual date and a little message on the photo itself.  We have a mac and use iphoto but I don't think there's a way using iphoto so I was wondering if any of you creative people knew how to do it. 

I would love some help!  Thanks!

CaveWoman, have you tried Picnik?  I've never actually used it, but a few of my friends are addicted!  http://www.picnik.com/

Here is a pic of one of the wreaths I made - it's still a work in progress (I still need to add ribbon to the inner and outer circles)


and here are the invites I bought:

Sweets4ever...thanks for the idea.  I'll check it out.  I've tried it with photobucket but when I go to kinkos to print it out some of the picture gets cut out and I have to shrink it which then gives me white siding that I'd rather not have.   Undecided
I'll try picnik next!
Thanks
