votives, etc. And way more suitcases than the law allows. I kept looking. (Although I still love this idea...it would certainly be a cute way to display photographs somewhere in your home.)
Then one day, while perusing some of my non-wedding blogs, I stopped by Be Different Act Normal. And there it was! The perfect way to display our table cards. I took this idea and ran with it. The idea is credited to How Does She?
It was small enough to pack in a suitcase....and ended up being very, very inexpensive. A huge plus since everything else about a wedding is cha ching.
The center table was 15 feet long so we placed the table card bars at one end and on the other end was a place for guests to sign cards for the bride and groom.
With all the hundreds of photos, we didn't have one of the two bars of table cards...but you get the idea. We ended up having only 11 tables so we put one card that says Find Your Table...making 2 bars with 6 cards each. (That sounds like a math sentence.)
Jordan and I collected several scrapbook papers that were in her colors of teal, aquas and greens. I painted and then sanded the bars. Chuck drilled the holes and curled the wires. Cost? Not much. Cute? Cute enough for the bride.
But for you young mamas out there......you really need to make a Birthday one. Or a through the years one.....putting their school picture from each year along the row....
