New Wedding 'Crest'

So I created yet another 'Crest'!! It might be a nice one to use on the tags of the honey jars!

Here it is:

Bee Hive Cakes

I just found these adorable 'Bee Hive Cakes' that you can make from a cake mold!

I think they would be really cute to have on little stands on the cake table - they could be served for desert along with the cake and pie!

Groom & Groomsmen's Style!

Ben and I went to Moores this Saturday to choose the Tuxes/Vests etc. for the boys for the wedding! Here is what we choose!

Suit - Chocolate Two button notch lapel tuxedo

Shirt - Ivory Microfibre

Ben's Vest - Diamond Pattern - Champagne and Ivory

Close Up - Look like 'honeycomb'

Ben's Tie - We decided to buy Ben a nice gold tie to match the grooms plain silk ties - the nice soft plain look of these ties will 'tie' them all together!

Groomsmen Vests - Synergy Gold Vest

Close Up

Groomsmen Ties - We decided to buy them nice plain ties to keep as a gift for being in our wedding, as the ties that came with the vests would have caused too much patterns to be going on, and we thought that the brown and gold complimented each other nicely and would match the colours of the sunflower boutonniere they will be wearing.

Shoes - Chocolate Patent-Leather Oxford Shoe

Cuff Links - White Gold Stud and Cuff link Set

Bandana Napkins!

I saw this idea on the 'Country Living' website, to use bandannas as napkins and to tie up the cutlery inside of them, and I loved it.

THEN when my dad found out our reception would be in the barn he suggested using bandannas and napkins! So I guess my dad could work for Country Living!

So I just ordered and received the bandannas. I got a light Beige colour and a Light brown colour so that we can rotate each colour on the table.

We will either use 'rope/hemp' like string to tie them up - or raffia. Then I would love to stick a sprig of herbs (possibly rosemary or dill) in under the rope for a bit of scent and a nice presentation.

Here are the two 14x14 inch bandannas I chose:

This light brown colour is a much nicer in person!

Here is the initial 'example' I saw on Country Living:

Favour Honey Jars!

I Finally found a company that would sell Honey Jars to Canada! They are perfect for what I wanted and they are 80z, so while a bit larger than I anticipated, they will be great to go one per couple!

Ricker and Angela Vandenhurk (Ben's Cousins) have graciously said they would donate as their gift to us for the wedding their own honey! They have recently purchased and started their of bee hive and it has been producing lots of delicious honey! So it's so exciting to have the honey be 'homemade' and from our family! Thanks so much!!

I'm so happy that our favours won't just be purchased from the store - but also 'handmade!'

Collage of Our Engagement Photos:
I finally put together a collage of our own engagement photos. I am always making them for other couples but never us. I am thinking about getting it custom framed (when frame go half price at Michales) and then doing the same square format of our wedding photos. They will be nice custom pieces for on the wall at home and I like that you can show multiple photos at once (instead of choosing just one!)

My friend Jenn took this photo for us and I thought it would be great to make it into a poster! Great for an online 'Save the Date' or can be used for a 'Jack and Jill' invitation/Poster!
