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.
