I really like the buttons with people's names on them (maybe put them on the table as place cards, OR can use them as escort cards too). My friend said she has a button maker, so would just need to supply the buttons which I found on amazon.

You can look at details of the venue on the following links:
We want to make a photobooth with like a cute linen as a backdrop, and have some fun props on the side for people to take photos with random props and a guestbook where people can put their polaroid pics with note. Plus, we'll prolly make a frame or chalkboard with instructions or something.
We have bought 4 string lights which are about 40ft long, and planning to get maybe another 8 more if possible at big lots where they sell it for $12 each. We want to hang them up in the dance floor area, and a few where people will be seated because it's pretty dark in those areas once it turns night.
The ceremony area is a grassfield, with just green all around. We want to face the tree for the ceremony. This is an inspiration for this area (if I want to add the burlap theme thing) with some kind of stand for candle lighting or the sand mixing part:
I am also going to be making framed chalkboards like this for the drink station and other stations including the dessert bar, the photobooth, and the guest sign in tables, etc:
I want to go through with something like this, except make the square envelope like blush pink, and put like ivory/white lace detail somewhere with possibly some floral thing going on. In the front, I thnk I want to go for something sea foam green, or like gold detail with a pearl or something on it. Also, the doilies, I feel like it woudl be nice to put some doiliee/lace detail around the edges of the opening of the envelope.
I'm going to make these ivory lace candles to place a few as part of the centerpiece decoration like these from http://www.goodhousekeeping.com/home/holiday-ideas/easy-valentines-day-craft-ideas
