    Thank you! The votives were a lot of work...First I ordered them from (72 clear cups and 72 unscented votives for like $36 with shippping) then I printed each couples name and table number onto vellum paper with scriptina and edwardian script font (which i downloaded for free). *I was at michaels today and they sell pre-cut votive labels in the wedding favor section, im not sure if they are vellum or not but they woiuld be SO much easier than cutting the paper to fit the cylinder shaped votives.* Anyways, then i sprayed the paper with a gold glitter spray from michaels. I used vellum adhesive and applied the labels to the glass votive cups and added the trim, which was the easiest part. I simply bought different kinds of purple ribbon to match the swatch of the girls' dresses, and used a martha stewart "tissue tape" roll to tape it down, its a narrow double sided tape, so you dont have to cut it down to fit the ribbon. The crystal was a swarvoski jewelry embellsihment from Michaels, and i had to cut the double sided tape into really small circles to fit the gem. VOILA! Thats it.
