      No, I actually bought them from a twitter follower. I was tweeting about bunting banners and she said she had some from her wedding that would probably work. I <3 social media!

    You did an absolutely amazing job! The decor looks amazing and your sister seems thrilled! =)

    I think it is interesting that you didn’t tell people it was going to vegetarian only. I guess you must have known all the guests very well. I only mention this because I have severe food allergies and I can’t even begin to count the number of times I have gone to a party and even my close friends forget. Then I end up eating only one thing because there is literally nothing I can eat. As someone allergic to nuts, legumes, soy, etc., I probably wouldn’t have been able to eat much of the vegetarian food. Most vegetarians use things I am allergic to in order to substitute meat. It is the number 1 reason I have never been able to go vegetarian.

      I didn’t warn anyone it would be a 100% vegetarian menu because I didn’t want it to be a big deal. I knew everyone that would be at the party and I knew it would be an easy going crowd that’s allergy free. If there had been anyone with allergies in attendance, I would have warned them ahead of time to give them a heads up. πŸ™‚

    Hi, I really love the frame made with the date in the three photo matting. Are the numbers in each frame something she made or found. Can I get more info on that. I love useful cute gifts and have a friend marrying in a month, thank you !

      Hi Bridgette, She found photos of the numbers online and printed them at Walgreens.

    I love the est pic frame with the date! I would love to make one for myself and my friend who just got engaged. I’m wondering where she found the numbers like that! I tried googling the numbers of my wedding date and I cant seem to find anything like the ones she used which I love!
    If you know or could find out , I would love to know!
    Thanks so much,
    P.S. the shower looked amazing!

    Hey –

    I was going to do the pic with date on it – I’ve decided to do my pics of places they have traveled (London, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic) and I can’t figure out how to get the numbers on the pics – I’ve looked on the computer for stencils/transfers, etc…do you have any suggestions? Jennifer

    • Meghann
      June 16, 2012

      Hi Jennifer! How about adding the numbers in photo shop in an antique font and then layering an “antique” and “black and white” layer over the whole picture so that it blends together?

    I love the picture frame idea with the date in each frame. I just started crafting and wanted to do a youtube video diy crafts. Can you send my contact information to the person that made it so that I could get permission to make the video of the picture frame craft? Thank you, Nuong
