After my book review of The Paper Bride, I got nostalgic for my own wedding. I feel guilty admitting that all my wedding pictures were in my attic before this blog post. One day I will get them into a photo album I swear. In the meantime I thought I would share some of my favorite things from my nuptials. Like my kitschy cake made by Fancy Cakes by Lauren in Dallas. After filming a few episodes of Craft Lab with Elisa Strauss I have a whole new respect for cakes likes this. I wish I had remembered the photo confetti we had sprinkled all over the tables for Tallulah’s birthday, next year!
My cake was frilly and the grooms cake was a weenie dog. Yup a weenie dog. We also had a framed picture next to the cake explaining why it was a weenie dog. You can see it has to do with one of Chris’s tattoos.
I wanted something different for my registry book. I bought a vintage library book off of eBay, sent it to Ex Libiris Anonymous and presto! The book was passed around at the wedding with a Polaroid camera, pens and markers. I still love to look back at all the pictures and read the funny pearls of wisdom that people wrote.
I have a shelf full of antique wedding cake toppers in my studio and a giant tupperware bin full of vintage tablecloths in my attic all left from my wedding. Each table had a different tablecloth and centerpiece.
Invitations, RSVPs and Save the Date Cards all set the stage for your wedding. I had vintage Pulp Fiction book covers converted into postcards as my RSVP cards. I also asked my guests to request a song so that I was sure the wedding mix would have something for everyone. Let me just say there were so many people dancing and having a good time, my wedding got shut down by the police. No really.
Thank you for coming to my stroll through wedding memory lane. Like I said yesterday, I sometimes fantasize about writing a wedding book. I have lots of new ideas. Did you do anything fun for your nuptials? I’d love to hear all about it.
