When we finally decided our wedding was going to have a vintage theme I envisioned a chandelier hanging above the alter. I got my wish :). We also bought a huge chandelier that was hung above our table. Aren't they beautiful?

It would have been perfect to give out golf balls and t's as our party favor since we got married at a golf course but that just wasn't our style. We both LOVE sweets so we decided to have a candy bar. It was a hit especially with the kiddos.
I got all of the candy from Sweeties. I saved a few bucks going local as opposed to online. Sweeties actually had better deals and more of the color options I was looking for anyway. All of the candy I chose was white, black, grey, and silver. I bought black shiny coffee bags online. I also bought cirular sticker labels (from Staples) and rectangular place card labels that had silver trim (from Joanns). I printed the same saying it says in the frame below onto the circular labels and stuck them to the coffee bags. Then I printed the name of each candy on the place card labels.
I thought a candy bar would be a cheap party favor. HA! Boy was I wrong. After the wedding I added it all up and we spent around $550 on vases ($100 at Wal-Mart), candy ($350), candy scoops ($50), bags, and labels ($50). Well you only get married once, right. It was $$$ well spent.

I ordered these from a gal named Monica and I just love how they turned out! Click here to see her etsy page although I think she's on leave.
The seating chart is kind of a DIY project. She sent me the pdf file and I had to have it printed at Kinko's. I bought a black poster board and used spray adhesive to adhere it. This custom seating chart cost me a total of $60.
She made these damask votive holders for my remembrance shrine too.

Here is another one of my many DIY projects I did for my wedding. I bought this birdcage at Ross for $15 btw. I spray painted it silver and attached a piece of black ribbon to it with double sided tape (Elmer's is the best). I printed a label that said cards and placed it where the two ends of the ribbon met. And there she is. Easy peasy!
