Moving right along to the reception, our theme was basicly rustic, vintage, with a little bit of sparkle. We used a lot of burlap,we ripped fabric instead of cutting it, we painted wood bright shiny white and then distressed it. All of our table centerpieces were different. We had a general layout with off white doilies, aged books, and handmade centerpiece trees but apart from that every single table was different and unique. So much so that I had to take a picture of each table to know how they went back together. What is a centerpiece tree you ask? Well let me just tell you that they were the topic of much debate. The groom hated them, my husband hated them, and countless members of our family hated them. But the bride LOVED them. So who do you think won out? Yep, your right. One of the funniest moments of the wedding planning was when the bride was telling her future mother in law about her beautiful centerpieces that were practically free. "So we took some branches that we found in the woods and we quickcreted them in some old soup cans and glued paper butterflies to them." The look on her mother in law's face had to be horrific. I for one think they turned out great. We wanted something tall and substantial but needed something within our budget. All the little dodads that are surrounding were just small yardsale finds.
