- lots and lots of martha poufs

- two hair pieces
- birdcage veil
- Ipod/computer dj

and I'm sure there are more.....

What a beautiful wedding! I absolutely love all of the colors, especially the green in your husband's shirt and your shrug (and your shoes!)

What gorgeous pictures!  Looks like you had a beautiful wedding. Smiley  The poufs looked amazing...I've never really cared for them but you made them look so cool!  Must have been the colors or something. 
How did you like the ipod DJ?  I've been planning on doing that, but I don't know how it'll fly.  Did you plan the order of each song, or randomize?

we liked the ipod/computer dj.  it went pretty smooth.  we did make up playlists beforehand- ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, first dance/mom's dance, and then we split the reception into three parts, early, mid and late.  the early dance stuff was more "hits" and stuff that we thought would get the most people dancing.  we also requested songs from people on our rsvps, so we included them in our playlists.

as a side note: we had a scrapbooking company come in and take pictures of everyone to put on a scrapbook page for us.  it really was a huge hit and everyone was busy getting their picture taken or working on a scrapbook page for us, so there really wasn't a whole lot of dancing going on.  i was kinda frustrated because we put so much time into the playlists and then we ended up just skipping around because people were requesting their songs and/or wanted to hear different songs.  i'm glad we didn't spend the money on a dj though!  that would have been a waste!

islandfly- which headpiece are you talking about?  the white feather one or the green one??  either way, i can't really give too much advice as i just winged it for both of them.  i collected things that i liked slowly from joann's and michaels and then about a week before the wedding i tried to look online for some inspiration.  they were really both just "happy accidents".  i just looked at what i had bought and kinda started playing with it all until i liked what i did.  i was super happy with how the green one came out- i was surprised at how well it all came together.  sorry that it's not too much help!  Smiley

thanks for all the lovely comments everyone!
