Papier mache centerpieces, fairy wings, and some awesome cake cuttings #Reader Round-up#birdcage veil#boots#cape#multi-colored dress#non-floral centerpiece#red dress#short hair#video games#wings August 13 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw Photo by Steve Zumbro Tribesmaid Remi crafted these epic papier mache chess pieces with her groom the summer before they got engaged. She says, "We're not even that into chess, but after spending 100+ man-hours making them, they seemed like the perfect centerpieces." I imagine anything with that much love and elbow grease is worth making a fuss over. This week's reader submissions also bring us some playground fun, a family cake cutting, a not-so-family cake cutting, and a couple clad in fairy wings and a cape. It's all-around fun this week in the Monday Montage. I am fully in love with Tribesmaid Anndee's multicolored frills and curls dress, knee high cherry red Doc Martens, and groom to match.

You can never go wrong with this combination. Must see MOAR! Photo by Kristin Hansen Photography Here's one more peek, this time with mini-wings!

GeekMom from Wired talks about planning a geeky-queer wedding, and documenting the whole process. Offbeat Home makes a headband out of a t-shirt, which could be a nice touch to a casual updo.

Reply love the last picture :)) so much fun 1 agrees Reply Redfeather's dress (and cheeky smile) is fabulous! Those lace straps? Mmm-mm! Reply WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW to that cake cutting! LOl! Reply Redfeather's dress is to die for. That's pretty much what I'd imagine angels(from a fantasy anime/videogame) would wear, and that is perfection. <3 Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
