I spent months collecting and making decorations for our wedding. It was by far my favorite part. The morning of our wedding we (and by we I mean anyone who I could get to come) all met at the venue, unloaded the car and began to decorate! It took us about 3 hours, we started at 7am, and I left at 10:30 ish to get my hair did. The guys focused on hanging all the fans, and I delegated tasks to the girls for table settings and the ceremony decor. In the end it was beyond awesome! I couldn’t have been happier!
Our favor was for guest to fill a dessert box with treats.
We had custom coasters made that read MORGAN AND J’s MEET AND MINGLE TRIVIA, we hand wrote 100 facts/trivia questions about thing relating to us, like Washington, Colorado, Cats, The Home Depot, Weddings, The Broncos etc. I still have all of them. (:
We asked guests to write little notes and relationship advice ot us and clip them onto this frame that held photos of us.
We did a mini cake and a large dessert bar with desserts baked by my aunt, my mom, and a few store bought things like M&Ms and banana chips.
