Did you take on any DIY projects?
"We went spray-paint crazy. Mason jars, table figurines, table name holders, you name it — I think Home Depot started to get suspicious. We also hand-drew hearts onto matchbooks and enlisted the bridal party to tie them to sparklers, which we placed at each table setting for guests to light later in the evening. Chanti designed the menus and itineraries, and we printed them out at FedEx, where we took advantage of the sheet cutter (not something I would recommend when you're short on time!).
For favors, we bought miniature packets, which we decorated with cute kitten stamps (we have a cat hashtag on Instagram, #danteandcomma, so it seemed appropriate). We filled them with flower seeds, wrote 'California Paw-pies' on the front, and sealed them with a Golden Gate bridge stamp on the back."
