Chic-as-hell vintage lamps as centerpiece decor

Vanessa and Octavia had their industrial garden party wedding at the super industrial-chic venue, Tap Architecture in Oklahoma City. Our favorite part was their centerpiece decor that made their already gorgeously rough interior even more vintage-fabulous. The pair re-painted and re-covered all the lamps and lampshades used as centerpieces, cut custom fabric as table runners, and collected old books as decor. It was a labor of love that made us swoon for the homey vibe.

These Perler bead centerpieces WILL MELT YOUR FACE WITH AWESOME

Let it be known that this industrious couple hand-placed over 56,000 Perler beads for their New Jersey wedding. THERE ARE NO WORDS FOR THE AWESOME. But I shall say some anyway. Alyssa and Ryan (who met playing Ultimate Frisbee which is one of my fave things ever) and sealed the deal at their wedding this past June… after hours and hours of assembling some very amazeballs Perler bead centerpieces. What do you get with 56,000+ beads? I'll tell you. More than 240 flowers and a couple of very adorable cartoon self-portraits. Take a look — they've got roses, and calla lilies and tiger lilies and irises and boatloads more. Sadly (well, I would be sad!), none of the flowers remain in Alyssa and Ryan's possession. At the end of the night, all 240 flowers had been scuttled away by guests who know a damn good thing when they see it!
