I know you are all anxious to see all of the pictures from the wedding, and trust me, I'll be sharing them soon, but there's some other things I want to share first.
Remember my card box that I made for the wedding and how I was looking for a little something more to add to it? Well I found that little something at Hobby Lobby one day. I found these little flowers in their wedding section (on sale for $0.49 each) and added one to each layer of the box and I love the way it turned out!
When I first started planning the wedding, I had lots of DIY ideas and one of the first were aisle runners I saw on Pinterest:
But once I realized that our aisle was 32 ft on each side, I decided there was no way I would have the time (or the patience) to make 64 ft of that bad boy. And since I had already purchased all of the flower petals, I had to come up with something else. I had seen lots of kissing balls hanging on church pews for wedding on pinterest, and I thought, I could do something like that with the flower petals I purchased. So I did one and really liked the way it turned out, so I invited family and friends over to help create the rest. I was really happy with the way the looked hanging on the pews:
|The lighted pillars in the church were a craigslist find by my Mother-In-Law a few years ago. Aren't they awesome?!?|
I also had a friend of my mom's make our "Here Comes the Bride" signs for our ring bearers to carry. She did an amazing job and I LOVE the way they turned out. The boys liked carrying them over their heads, rather than by the rope handles :) And they kept getting the order mixed up, which was actually super cute.
There are a couple other DIY projects we did, but I'll share those later. I love the way everything turned out, we saved a lot of money doing DIY, and I love that we can look back and say that we made a lot of the wedding decorations. Did you do any fun DIY projects for your wedding?
