We had these stands made so we could make amazing canopies without having to suspend things or use vases. I love them..however they do have a couple of design flaws. 1. they don't all fit in one van load 2. they are too heavy for one person to lift onto the table. 3. they don't quite fit on a normal size table, if you want to have glassware as well. ( thanks to the awesome staff at Alto for working with us on this one!) 4. they are very difficult to store...apart from that they are amazing and perfect. These photos were taken when i was nine months pregnant, my last big wedding before Dusty was born. It seems like so long ago!
