Ok folks, I’m not very crafty and I don’t really do parties so I’m in need of some opinions on what to do for our wedding reception. It’s been a while since I’ve posted about this, but the date is Dec 22nd and we’re going for an afternoon reception so people can leave early if they need to.
For the favors I’m thinking about buying some little mini buckets (seen here) and putting various things inside such as m&m’s, dried fruit, mixed nuts, and maybe a some with miniature chocolate bottles with alcohol in the center.
For the centerpiece I was thinking about buying some glass bowls (seen here) and putting some river rocks or glass beads in the bottom and floating candles and for others maybe flower pettles and the floating candles. The little favors would be placed around these bowls along with maybe some Christmas ornaments or flowers or maybe something else (I want to mix it up a little so not all the tables will look exactly the same).
Oh, and if I found a lady that would make a 3 tier cathedral length veil for somewhere between $30-40, is that a good deal? To me it seems kind of high considering it’s just a few pieces of material with a white ribbon for trim around the edges, but all the other veils I’ve seen are insanely expensive. Am I just naive and absolutely everything associated with weddings is always outrageously priced?
