Here are some nice painted tin cans holding flowers, and I planned to attach a wire handle through two holes in the top to place over the edge of the pew.

Then while visiting http://www.moo.com/ I found that they also had great eco friendly bussiness cards, and that's how I got my business cards!
Its a great company! I also love their 'mini cards' and may use them as favour tags!

I love how old fashioned and timeless silhouettes are and I have decided to attempt to make my own silhouettes of Ben and I for the wedding! I'm sure we have all made them as a child in school, but I'm going to attempt to make them in a bit more of a modern (and easy) way. I will simply take a profile photo of us in front of a plain background and then in Photoshop I will select only our faces turning them black and the rest of the background white! Hopefully it will work and we can either hang or frame them for at the wedding, or just use them in the slide show or on invitations or thank you cards or something like that.
It would go great with the old fashioned theme - and we could even hang it on our wall later next to our wedding photo!
Of course it would not say 'Helen and Lito" although that may add some mystery to the wedding :D !!
Bright Lights Cosmos.
David Austin Rose.
Black Eyed Susan.
An example Bouquet I like:
Sunflowers, Circus Roses, Green Hypericum Berries, Green buttons, and Rafia.
Yellow Sunflower, Orange Gerbera, Seasonal Flower Fillers & Other Greeneries.
I like these tall thin jars as they are a bit different than the normal mason jar. I thought it would be nicer to make the jam than to buy these small jam favours that come pre-packaged.
I want to write "Spread The Love" on the labels of the jar, which is a slogan I saw on a little wedding favour knife set - And just now while searching fir it on jam labels I found a great photo of how I want our jam bottles to look - with the gingham pattern cloth on top and the rough rope or hemp string holding it on.
I also wanted to write on a tag attached to the jar "With Thanks from the Berry Happy Couple"!
Overall I think these jam jars should be cute - and something that will be very usable and yummy for the guests to take home with them! They also fit in great to the old fashioned theme as well as with the berry themed deserts!

I have two of these for the ceremony:
And they will sit on these stands on either side of the stage:
And they will have 2 large candles beside them (like 2.5ft candles!!) - and then I got this multi pack of different sizes for on the registry table as well as the three pack of almond scented brown candles to match our colours and to make the sanctuary smell lovely!And then I got these lanterns in 3 different sizes (in just the black - shown here is the medium size) to hang in the barn at the reception over the head table!
So overall I was pretty pleased with my stop at Ikea as I think this stuff will look great and really goes with the theme!

But Then just recently I came across another cute idea! Where instead of the age as corresponding with the table number - you make the table number the year i.e. 1987 and then you put a photo of both of you that year! I like this idea as it emphasizes the DATE/YEAR theme (and the 1989 etc. sounds neat and unique and goes along with the 'old fashioned' / 'past' theme of the wedding).
However the downfall is that Ben and I are not the same age - So we would have to start with 1987 (and would miss having photos of Ben at 1 and 2) AND since he's two years older than me we would also always be a different age in each photo!
So I need advice on what you think! Stick with the Age as corresponding with the table number OR take the more unique route and make the table # ayear's date with a photo of us in that year? Here is an example and these two people don't look to be the same age either?!? So do you think it would work? - Please leave a comment on this post if you have any insight!! :D Thanks
"This Miss Peggy Doll, This Miss Peggy Doll, rolling down the streeeeett" haha that's how it went!
Once I figure out my wedding colours and details I look forward to looking more into ordering one of these toppers! It will be a keepsake that we have forever!
Here is a link to view more of these great toppers!
I LOVE the look of lace boleros and I found this one made by a Ukrainian women who now lives in Israel. I love how old fashioned it looks, and how it will add personality to any dress I get. Plus she said that she would give me a deal on this one if I was to order lace boleros for my bridesmaids from her as well (which would be a great option - especially if we end up getting strapless dresses for the girls!) I'm just waiting to see what shade my dress is so we can match it to the bolero!
Here is the map I put together - that will be part of the picture map!
And here is a mock up of the 'idea' I sent her! I'm sure she will do a much better job of making it look nice!
I think it will be neat to have such a custom piece as a memento from our wedding day - and something neat for guests to have as well!
Any thoughts? Let me know :D

I have also always wanted to have guests throw bird seed! And ever since the February addition of Martha Stewart Living where she had this photo of sewn wax paper bags I have wanted to package the bird seed like this:
I also wanted to sew on a little note to the birdseed explaining the significance of showering the bride and groom SO to my SURPRISE - when searching for a photo of 'wedding birdseed' tonight I found this photo:
I Love it, it's exactly what I wanted to do - But it kind of makes me feel ripped of! I just can't believe its already been done exactly how I pictured it! Oh well! I guess that just means its a good idea! :D
