The "Did you Know?" Centerpieces

Here's a wonderful DIY non-floral centerpiece idea from Tribesmaid Katie Sue's wedding — a log-sliced wooden base, with two wrapped candles and trivia about wedding traditions held aloft for guests ponder. The bride, Katie Sue, explained:

Nearly everything purchased for the wedding was on sale, free, or crafted with things I already had or could easily find. My fiance and I had craft-night nearly every night for about 7 months leading up to the wedding. We hand-made everything we could, including the boutonnieres, invitations, programs, thank-yous, centerpieces, signage, bouquet, and headpieces.

The wedding was performed on a Sunday evening outdoors as the sun began to set. Our colors were cream and chocolate and everything was very natural-based with wooden pieces strewn throughout the wedding and reception. Our whole wedding party wore chocolate Converse and we served candy instead of dinner.

I can't even imagine the amount of work that Katie-Sue and her fiance put into all these DIY details … and I just scratched the surface! To see the rest, check the slideshow.
