We could go on, but we're starting to sound like Dr. Seuss, lol. We just know what our clients love, so we make sure to carry an array of linens and items for those who are not ashamed to show off their girly-girl side!

I Do's Top 10 of 2016

The wait is almost over, and the top slot is almost here, but until then we'll keep you in suspense just a little while longer with our runner up!

#2 "The Classic Chair Cover"

The Chiavari Chair (especially the gold-refer to our #10 post) has been like the "it girl" of wedding trends, but nothing says classic than a well fitted chair cover and a well-tied sash! Did you know?! Our I Do Crew put on 40,982 chaircovers this past year! Now that's a lot of chair covers-Bayer anyone? LOL. All jokes aside; we take pride in our work, and it's definitely a labor of love that's worth the effort!
