What an amazing wedding! I like that you kept it to your tastes and what you like. I think that is so important. I hate going to genaric weddings that you could pretty much take out one couple and put another in. Plus you had a lot of elements and ideas that suit me and my tastes. About how many guests did you have? Its looks like such a success.

babycakes- thank you so much!  we really wanted to have a wedding that was "us" and i think we really achieved that.  i also hate "cookie cutter" weddings and wanted to steer as far away from that as we could.

we had about 80 people which i think was the perfect amount!

so the felted flowers. How did you do that? I crochet but I am thinking that may be knitting. I have been looking at those over and over. I can't get them out of my head. Any tips?

babycakes- they are knitted.  my sister actually made them for me, so sorry that i can't help you out too much!  i know that they are the tulip pattern from pickup sticks.  she used cascade 220 yarn for all of them (so that they felted evenly).  one tip if you do try to make them- put a piece of ribbon through the stem before you felt them.  that way, when you go to put the wire through, you have a spot (otherwise it will felt together and then there will be no way to get them to "stand" by themselves.)  also be sure to put safety pins at the ends of the ribbon before you felt them so that the ribbon doesn't pull through while felting. 

sorry i wasn't much help.  if you have any other questions, post and i can try to get an answer from my sister!

Hey Kristi! Well, after much anticipation (and secret planning inside my own head) I am now engaged! I am so excited. I keep referring to your wedding website for inspiration. Actually, we have chosen a place that reminded me of your reception hall. (It has dark wood beams in one part).

Anyhoo, I noticed that there are items that you have for sale. Are those items still for available. (like the candles holders?) I may be interested in taking them off your hands. Also, I love your shrug. Would your Master Knitter sister consider a special order? I would love any tips or advice that you, an experienced wedding crafter, might have! Feel free to send me a message! and you can check out our newly started wedding page at http://brookeandtanner.blogspot.com

Thank you for sharing your photos. It's always fantastic to attend a wedding where the couples have taken the time to personalize it. Makes it so much more memorable and fun for the guests. There were so many things I liked about your wedding, but the thing that struck me the most was the patterned fabric centerpiece foundation. Simple, but a wonderful idea! I  am going to be sharing that idea with my niece.

I didn't know I wasn't suppose to eat it.

babycakes-  congrats!!  i checked out your wedding page and your hall does remind me of our place!  Smiley  the things are indeed for sale, where are you located?  i'm not sure how well the glass things would ship- and they are heavy!  was there anything else you were interested in?  i did talk to my sister about the shrug and she said that it would be difficult to do without being able to take her own measurements and have you try it on.  sorry!

let's see- as for advice...  do what you like!  there is so much pressure when you have a wedding from other people to do what is "acceptable" or predictable.  don't let other people's ideas influence you too much.  also, if you are planning on crafting a lot- don't wait!!  some things take more time than you think they will (martha poufs for example) and you don't want to have to give up something because you didn't have time to finish it all.  also, try to get helpers!  try to have a craft day and have friends/family over to help craft!

hope that helps!  sorry it took me awhile to get back to you- i don't normally check this board too often anymore!  Smiley  you can pm me with any other questions you might have though!

Your wedding was sooooooooooooo gorgeous, and it's been a really big influence on my FI and I (we JUST started planning about a month ago!)

I LOVE it- you planned such a beautiful day, congrats!!!! (And thanks for posting and sharing you excellent ideas!!)
