wedding overload

I have had google reader for over a year now (I know, I was totally late to that party) and all the while I star things I like so that I can go back in later to either blog about them or use them for myself. Well it is of no surprise that this once wedding-centered blog has morphed into more of a baby blog as that is what is on my mind most of the time (btw, I am due in 4 days! yikes!!) Sooooo, I went through all of my starred posts and took out the wedding ones and have compiled them all into one big wedding extravaganza for you! I know, very exciting. Although my wedding was a year and a half ago my very good friend Natalie is getting married in June, and on top of that, well, weddings are just fun to look at. Here are some images that I found fun to look at over the last year:

tables

Thank you all for answering my questions!  It was really interesting to see that photography came out on top as the thing everyone was glad they splurged on or wished they would have splurged on. We put so much effort and emotion into this one day and all you have for the rest of your life are the pictures! And although our photographer gave us a great deal, we still spent 1/5 of our small budget on those photos and I wouldn’t trade that for anything! So again, thanks for sharing ladies!!

On to this morning’s topic: tables!  Here are a few that I am currently loving for a rustic wedding.

One day away from Friday…

I have been eating a lot of peaches lately, which makes me love this centerpiece/favor idea.

Monday’s and thumbprints

Does anyone else need another weekend? I do.  Oh well, what can you do?

On to a happier topic, weddings! I have seen a new version of the guestbook popping up here and there and I wanted to get your opinion on it. It is the family tree/thumbprint version. Here are a few images I recently saw:

Did any of you do this at your wedding? Thinking about doing it? Been to a wedding that did it? It is super cute, and I am all for the guest books that you can frame! Obviously you would need to provide some type of wipe for guests, and make sure there are enough branches… but overall it seems like a great idea!

What do you think?

Love the rustic look of this wedding! Especially the wood table sans table cloth.
