We’ve got your number!

A twist on this is to have pictures of the bride and groom at each age, example for table #1, pictures of the bride and groom when they were one. Something Turquoise shares her tips on this DIY project.

    These are all so creative. I think the numbers with meanings would get a little confusing, lol. The sparkly number 8 is my favorite. I used framed numbers at our wedding.
