Wedding Day Part 2 - Details of the Day

I had a fun time thinking up and putting together a lot of these wedding details.  There were things I thought up and scrapped because I didn't have time, but I'm glad I managed to do so many of them.

I saw mugs similar to the ones I used on pinterest and I purchased them slowly over the course of planning the wedding.  I was super excited when I found these dishwasher safe chalkboard labels.  I labeled each one of these.  After the wedding I found a glass mug similar to these with a chalkboard label already on it for about the same price.  Oh well!

My handwriting is not the best, but I only had my cousin Ashley for one night before the wedding.  She did the names on all of the mugs.

My sister did small 6 or 8 inch cakes as her center pieces at her wedding.  I pretty much did the same thing, but I did mini cupcakes.  I love that we were able to have so many different kinds of cupcakes.  

Since the guest tables had their cake as the center piece, Dave and I only had a small cake to cut.

So Pittsburgh has this thing called the cookie table.  Long story short, many cultures here in Pittsburgh, not sure who did it first, started having a cookie table at weddings.  All the women of the family would bake cookies for the wedding in case the couple didn't have enough to have cake for everyone.  For my sister's wedding, I was maid of honor, and I put together a cookie book.  It was a book of all of the recipes of the cookies on the table and who contributed those cookies.  My friend Heather (from Amaryllis Musings) made the book for me.
