We had our wedding Friday but I couldn't find the cord to the camera for a while. Here's the hanging table numbers I made.

I took small pieces of particle board from Michaels and painted them a metallic teal. Then I used a stencil to spray paint black designs over that and added a silver painted wooden number to each side.

Also, I was going to make centerpieces out of tree branches and hang crystals on them. We ended up finding wire trees which we painted silver and made crystals hanging from chains to add to them. I don't have any good pictures of just the centerpieces so here's one of my cousin being a dork with a centerpiece in front of her

Here's another shot of the centerpiece and table number. Also notice under the centerpieces... my mom made the peacock feather chargers under the mirrors.

I don't have any good closeups of my bouquet yet. Here's a picture of it. I did the bouquets and mine had crystal stems in it.

My BM dresses were Alfred Angelo Tealness and we couldn't find any vests that matched. We found fabric that was almost the exact shade of teal and my mom made vests for the 2 best men from a Kwik-sew pattern.

Well, I think that's about it that I have pictures of for DIY stuff. I'll have more when I get the professional pictures back.

I love the table numbers! And that is a great teal color.
I like that you did a red bouquet with the teal, also.
I am planning a teal and chocolate brown wedding but also want to do dark red flowers, as well as implementing dark red in other places. Smiley

I love it.  My colors for my march 08 wedding are red, turquoise and tan.  It was good to see how well they worked together, not only in my head!

Congrats and good luck!

Lori!!! Oh my gosh! I was going through these pictures going, hmm...that girl looks an awful lot like...hey it it! I am way too excited to see someone I know in real life on my favorite message board.

That being said, everything (and you) looks gorgeous. I absolutely love the blue, the centerpieces, and the peacock feather accents.

So good to see you on here!
