Wedding Wednesday // The Details (part 2)

Continuing from my last WW post here, these are the details from the reception portion of our wedding. 


The Centerpieces

The centerpieces for the tables at the reception were a mixture of floral arrangements and DIY gold vases grouped together (see below...) with lots of sparkling votives and sequins sprinkled around. 

The floral center piece was a mix of black magic roses, miniature pink roses, pink carnations and seeded eucalyptus. 


The other tables had clusters of gold vases and wine glasses that I had found at Goodwill and spray painted gold. The tall vases were filled with the pink mini roses and eucalyptus, the smallest vase was filled with a single black magic rose and the wine glass had a floating candle. 


I also made all of the table numbers using card stock and printing them at home using our wedding font and cutting them to fit the frames and picks. 


The "LOVE" balloons


I had a vision of including these big gold letter balloons in the wedding decor somehow. I had seen them on blogs and instagram and decided they would be the perfect touch to my gold, glam wedding. So, I searched online and found these letter balloons on Amazon. I decided to buy the letters L O V and E :) It was a last minute decision to place them behind the head table, which I'm so glad we did because it provided the perfect focal point for the room. 


Here's a better close up of the love balloons and the head table (Apparently, my Matron of Honor said something hilarious...). For the head table, I used a gold sequined table runner. We had 6 hurricane vases that held the bridesmaids' and my bouquets as well as spray painted wine glasses with floating candles for decor at the head table. 


The Escort Cards

One of the most fun (and tedious) projects I completed for the wedding was the escort cards. I made paper flags for the gold and white straws with each guest's name and table number on the back. These were lined up in Champagne glasses during cocktail hour for guests to find their seat before the dinner part of the reception.




The Dessert Bar


The dessert bar was our "favor" to the guests. The dessert bar consisted of Buckeyes (for those outside of Ohio, Buckeyes are balls of peanut butter dipped in chocolate... they are also Ohio State University's mascot! Yes, it's a nut... But, also a delicious treat!), chocolate dipped pretzel rods, caramel puff corn and a tower of mini cupcakes in various flavors.

I actually made the cake stands you see in the above photo by spray painting plates, platters and candle sticks/holders (all bought at Goodwill) gold and epoxy gluing them together.



The Cake


Bill and I had a small 2 tier cake to use for our "cake cutting". I will say that unfortunately, the edible gold glitter that was supposed to look like gold glitter did not come out so well. It actually made the cake look a little yellow, so I'm not going to share a complete photo of the cake. I was, however, in love with the flowers cascading down the front and our cake topper that I found on Etsy

Well, that will do it! All the details of the Rumple wedding!

I hope you enjoyed getting a glimpse into the event that took over my life for a good 10 months last year! I'm sad that it is over, but actually relieved at the same time :)

  6. Absolutely love everything about your wedding style! Also, I've been looking for those balloons EVERYWHERE! Do you remember which seller you purchased them from? I want the exact same ones you have (some of the others I've seen look really cheap) and I don't have a lot of time to waste purchasing the wrong ones now!
