I ran across this photo on theknot.com recently (taken by Erin De Jauregui, Pasadena, CA). It was from a wedding that took place in ME. http://weddings.theknot.com/Real-Weddings/59155/detailview.aspx?id=59155&type=3&wedding+details=reception+decor&pageIndex=3
Anyway, I love how simple and unique this was all at the same time...my FI's dad got to work making us our very own ampersand. We made the template in powerpoint, and basically just made the font as large as possible for a 8.5x11" piece of paper. I'm not sure how he made it...but if you're interested, I can find out more information. I'm planning to paint it white and tie it with purple satin (our colors are purple, white, and silver). I think it's a small touch that will add something a bit unique into our wedding day.
Thanks for sharing! This is so cute!! I wonder if you can buy the ampersand at Michael's? (My father is not as handy.) I'll have to check it out!
The Michael's (and JoAnn's and Hobby Lobby) here didn't have anything other than the alphabet. I just did a google search and found this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120472199310&rvr_id=&crlp=1_263602_263622&UA=WXF%3F&GUID=bcd5a8f31240a0437451e411fffe27a1&itemid=120472199310&ff4=263602_263622
If you are looking to buy one, the one in the top pic is from Anthropologie. $18 though.
They sell them at K-Mart in the baby section! Only $6.00!! Well they do here anyways, I'd imagine it varies state to state though. Good luck ladies!! :)
Will you be selling yours after your wedding? Our colors are purple, cream, and green..... please let me know! :)
I haven't really decided what I'm going to do with it yet. When is your wedding?
just got mine for $2 at hobby lobby! its a wooden great size that i'm going to paint white or purple too
Found an amperstand in white at AC Moore craft store for $7!!!
love this Idea!! very cute
The ampersand in action! My coordinator ended up moving it to the front of the table, since the stage was a bit to high for anyone seated to see it.
