I'm also adding this product to my etsy shop. I think it's great for an event like a wedding to use repeat images in several pieces in order to tie the event together. Being custom designed artwork it adds a special personal touch that helps bring all of the design elements together. It's those little extra magic touches that makes the evening unique and memorable.
