Our Hawaiian Wedding: The Collateral in ActionPosted: July 13, 2011
You’ve seen the some of the collateral, but there are a few surprises in here and it’s fun to see it all in action!
Table with the programs and guestbook:
We included new Polaroid cameras for guests to have their picture taken to put next to their message to us. I customized the guestbook with a personalized first page and an engagement picture in the front window.
My mom visited Asia several months before the wedding and surprised us with an entire suitcase full of these AMAZING parasols! They provided shade while waiting for the ceremony to begin and were a fun keepsake for guests!
2 DELICIOUS signature drinks. Rodney’s (Rodney works at Hokulia, our venue) Mai Tai’s really are the best in the world.
Note the cocktail napkins have changed from “Are Tying the Knot” to “Tied the Knot”. We also ordered customized stirrers with our married initials (which happen to be my personal married initials as well!) from Horchow.
I made the flag garland around the cake. I may do a whole post on this. I’m debating because honestly it didn’t turn out exactly as I planned as the humidity pulled apart a lot of the glue in an awkward way. I think overall it turned out nice, just not exactly what I was thinking.
The tables were more than I imagined they would be. My mom worked with a wedding planner in Tulsa to make the runners. We chose a fabric that was similar to burlap, but a bit higher quality. We had two different colors and my mom figured out a way to knot smaller pieces on top which gave it a more complex look and perfectly accented the gorgeous wood furniture (not only did we save money on rentals by using Hokulia’s furniture, we had a better quality than we could have rented). It couldn’t have been more perfect!
Had to make sure the name cards wouldn’t blow away, so I re-utilized the hemp string from the invitations to tie them around the menus.
LOVE this shot. That is how the sky photographed right after sunset. This table had our favors (small woven boxes with chocolate turtles inside) that doubled as escort cards.
And to top it off a name sign for the Simpsons! This post concludes the Mundt—Simpson wedding package!
I’m off to Tulsa tomorrow for a few days. The “lowest high” for the time I’m there is 103… Wish me luck!
