Wedding: Signature Drink

Here we are toasting our Appletini's during my lovely MOH's speech.

For anyone who really knows my husband and I, you know we share a love for the sitcom, Scrubs. It was one of the first things we found out we had in common and our first few dates consisted of nights hanging out and watching all the seasons of Scrubs on DVD. Aaand, for the rest of you Scrub lovers you know that JD loves Appletini's. With our green apple theme, it seemed silly to not incorporate Appletini's as our signature drink. I recommend using signature drinks to help tie in your theme. Signature drinks are also smart if you want to save on money. If you focus on one cocktail you won't have to spend a lot of your budget on a bunch of liquor. We also had beer, wine, and champagne available, but cutting back on the liquor goes a long way. If you're having a hard time figuring out a signature drink for your event, try finding drinks that simply match your color scheme!

Wedding Mess

My apologies and thanks to my then fiance and my daughter for putting up with this mess for the last, oh 2 months or so before the wedding. It was a happy day for all when the floor could finally be seen again :P

Wedding: Banners

We were working on a budget with our wedding, (as I'm sure most do) and if you look in the right places you can find a world of great freebies and printables. of course is a great resource. She has these great letter templates to make banners out of. Just print them out on cardstock and cutout. I found circle punches worked great for a nice clean, symmetrical edges. Above, mine are strung up with the same twine that we used on our invites.
