I just thought I would share my wedding with you. I was married on July 8, 2006. I can't believe the last two years have flown by. The 7 months we planned the wedding seemed to drag on forever..so much to do and so little time. Our original plan was to get married on a glacier in Alaska, due to running his business my father and step-mother could not make the trip. So since I wanted my father to walk me down the isle and his sadness of not being there we decided to have our wedding here and go to Alaska for our honeymoon. I wanted the wedding to be a reflection of my future husband and I. I also didn't want to go broke. So I decided to do as much as I could myself and with the help of a few wonderful people. I realized what items were most important to us and worked my budget around them. It was not a platinum wedding but a true reflection of who we are.
My arch! I bought the lighted arch at Michaels using a coupon and decorated it with silk flowers, garland and tulle on eBay. With the help of my future husbands family we spent a day putting everything together. It was special for us to be married under something that was created with love.
I love sweets! So I created a candy bar. I ordered organza bags and customized ribbon to fill with customized M&M's. I also ordered the customized labels and placed them on different kinds of candy.
I couldn't resist the M&M cake topper I found on eBay..well that had to go on the grooms cake..LOL.
Here is the entry table, my wedding cake, and the guest tables. And who couldn't forget the bubbles.
