just sayin’: our wedding brunch

now, i’m a little out of order, but here are some pictures and details from our wedding brunch. we had everyone over to my parents’ house and i’m so thankful we did it – we had a chance to really visit and talk with everyone!

the leftover cups from our cereal bar at the wedding were great for coffee at the brunch!

our cater, chef on call, brought amazing bloody mary mix – so of course we set-up a bar cart. my sister found this one on craig’s list last year and this was the perfect time to use it.

the pictures are from my grandparents’ and mom and dad’s wedding.

the love letters are repurposed from a beauty baby shower we threw for one of my honorary bridesmaids – it’s my favorite paper source print!

 

a gift area was set-up, and we used the banner from the wedding shower my alabama pals hosted – it looked great with the living room colors.

instead of a guest book we had a wishing tree. we stamped tags with our wedding logo. i’ll be sure to share pictures of that.

sunday after brunch was the perfect time to read through all the sweet wishes from our friends and family – tear.

i decorated: the bridal luncheon for $150

ok, this is way overdue, but we’re finally back in la and hopefully back to a normal life!

the bridal luncheon

we decided to have my bridal luncheon at the westin in huntsville. the idea of having the lunch in a meeting room made me cringe. luckily, jennifer at the westin was willing to work with us, and didn’t think i was entirely crazy when i said i wanted to have it outside between the trees (and on what is normally used as a sidewalk).

we used 3 long tables and i made 3 smaller arrangements accented with 3 bud vases. my sister just bought the flowers from fresh market, and i assembled them in the kitchen.

i bought the gold chevron table runner from paper source – you could not even tell that it was paper!

it was so nice to have a little bit of time with the ladies i love before everything got crazy!

 

how we decorated for $150; cheap, but chic: the runner = $30; we made the tags = $5; the flowers =  $50; the vases were bought on sale at x-mas and from an outlet = $50; the bags = $10; the ribbon = $5

more wedding stuff to come throughout the week!

i’m in love with the bow ties we got for the groomsmen. they are coming in from england, mrs. bow tie.

i think the color and velvet texture will be great for the fall. to really jazz the boys up – we are adding a pocket sqaure using the leftover material from my sisters’ dresses – can’t wait to see if it all plays out as well as i see it in my head…
