Planning the wedding was fun, albeit a little stressful at times. Putting our own personal touches on the wedding was very important to me (and the crafting relieved some of that stress!). Here are a few our diy wedding details.
My dad and I cut some old plywood which I painted and used to tell guests where to go.
I made the flower I wore in my hair with a simple silk flower and a hair comb.
We wrapped the mason jars that held our flowers with twine for a rustic look. Aren't those flowers gorgeous!
My brother-in-law, Kenny, made our huppah. He found some old trees in his backyard and propped them inside some flower pots. My sister, Kathy, potted the flowers. As for the cloth, I sewed ribbon on each corner of some sheer ivory voile and tied it to each pole. I am keeping the cloth in hopes that someday our children will be married under it as well.
I created the escort cards, invitations, and table numbers using some beautiful letterpress stationary that I found at Target. We saved a lot of money making our paper suite ourselves, and I don't think I could have found a more appropriate design for our wedding.
I also hand painted our wedding cake topper. Standing next to us are our kitties, Bo and Kitty. Silly, I know, but it was fun having them on our cake.
And let's not forget the inspiration behind it all, those gorgeous napkins you all have been hearing me talk about since January!
Thank you all for coming along with me as I documented our wedding day and some of the planning that went into it. I'm so glad you were supporting me through this journey. Thank you!
