1. Trim your foam core to your desired size using a straight edge, such as a metal ruler, and a very sharp craft knife.
2. Sand down the foam edges before painting. Otherwise, they could chip away and leave visible white spots. The paper layer, when painted, will look much different than the foam edge, but both will hold paint.
3. Finally Spray paint your foam core. Frances went with gold, but a pretty silver or soft pink would look equally as lovely. Let sit overnight to ensure that everything is dry before you start putting your feathers in it.
2. Paint the top of your feather with your desired paint color. While the paint is still wet, gently sprinkle your glitter onto the painted portion of your feather. As far as color combinations you can go wild with a turquoise paint and hot pink glitter or keep it simple with gold on gold like Frances did.
2. Gently shake the glitter off and then place them upright in your foam core.
3. After you have sprinkled all your feathers let them air dry overnight.
4. The next day spray a thin coat of clear lacquer, this will insure that all the glitter stays put.
5. Frances and Ablert used white labels and hand-wrote their guests names on each one with table numbers and a star indicating what they would be dining on.
Words from The bride
Do your homework ahead of time so you can relax on your big day! I didn’t fret for a second about how things were getting set up on my wedding day. I was able to enjoy the day with my girlfriends by choosing vendors I completely trusted.
I felt that initial stages of wedding planning were the most important. We interviewed several vendors and decided to work with people we immediately connected and felt comfortable with. We chose vendors by extensively researching their reviews on several sites as well as reviewing portfolios and previous work on blogs and websites. This legwork allowed us to relax knowing that the professionals we chose would be completely capable of handling everything that needed to be done on our wedding day.

Here’s one fun tip: I purchased several pairs of shoes to try with my wedding gown. To decide which pair was the best, I used a tip from a girlfriend, given to her by her grandmother... I vacuumed my house while trying out the heels! The movement helped me figure out which shoes would be comfortable to dance in all night long.
