Except when I walked in (from the POURING rain...more on that later), all my linens were white. White white white. It's something small, but when you've spent so much time deliberating on these decisions and are looking forward to seeing how it all worked out...well, I was disappointed. I am not a plain white kind of girl, in case you haven't noticed! I didn't go bridezilla or anything - and I remember thinking - if THIS is the only thing that didn't go right, then really...I have absolutely nothing to complain about. (I don't consider the rain something that didn't go right, since we always knew that was a possibility.) I did quickly express to my planner's assistant that the tablecloths were actually supposed to be black, and that I knew there was nothing she could do about it now, but I wanted it to somehow go on record.
Well - they did the best they could! You see, our cocktail hour was taking place upstairs - not where the tables were. So during cocktail hour, they were able to switch the napkins to black, so that I at least got the black and white look, even if it wasn't exactly what I envisioned. I really appreciated it - it did help the look! So that's why you see two different sets of napkins in the above pictures.
Alright, the rest of my details are kind of miscellaneous...
Our rings (on top of our programs.) We had a bit of a kerfuffle with Mr. Llama's wedding band - I don't know if our jeweler mismeasured him, wrote the number down wrong or what, but when we picked it up a week before leaving, it was HUGE on him. Our jeweler said she couldn't re-order the ring and get it in time, so she advised that we make it work until we came back home, where she'd replace it. At first, we were okay with that, but the more we thought about it, the more we were mad about it. So we called her back, and asked that she overnight the new ring down to Florida.
You can find this ring for a whopping $18.99 on Amazon. It looks better than the $200 one from the jeweler!
The whole reason we didn't go that route in the first place was because with tungsten, we wanted to make sure we ordered the right size...go figure!
In hindsight, this kind of sounded like a negative post. I really don't feel that way. Did everything go 100% correctly? No...but it was pretty darn close. Notice how the 'mistakes' are in the post called "The Details." In that case, I'd say we did pretty good!
