- Wedding: April 2013
Now that the wedding is just a couple days away I’m getting nervous about the DIYs so I need opinions.
So first things first, the arch. It originally looked like this
I pulled out the lights, put a few coats of green spray paint, glued some flowers into the light holes then glued the leaves from the silk flowers onto the flowers themselves and now it is
Sorry about the mess, it’s been crunch time with wedding planning and finals coming up.
I just made the boutaniers last night, the white one is for my fiance, the big one is for the best man
I’ve started on the bridesmaids bouquets and have two to go, I can’t find the foam balls so I’ll be making a trip to walmart tonight and the last two will be put together. They will look like this (apart from the Maid/Matron of Honor, hers will be mainly pink with a few green flowers)
My bouquet is primarily white. I am not too fond of the bridesmaids but my mom loves them so whatever, but I like mine 🙂
The flower girl baskets are pretty simple, and I just used easter baskets as you can tell
Now at Davids Bridal when I bought the dress I told them I wanted straps, we tried out the caps and all but the only thing that looked good were thin straps. When I went in for the fittings they couldn’t figure out what straps I was talking about and said they didn’t have any straps at all, even though when I bought the dress she brought the straps out for me to see and try on the dress. So I made the straps myself (although it took 30 hours total to do this) Here is the dress (haven’t added the straps onto it yet)
And here are the straps
I also did my own jewelry
I also painted the flower girls shoes, they were solid white so I covered the flowers and insides and spray painted with the same paint from the arch, then went in and hand painted the green glitter paint. They look warped in the pic because the paint it still wet when I took the pic but they look much better now that they are dried
^And the centerpieces are a bunch of different size mason jars (about 4 per table, 2 small 1 medium and one large) like this but we have our engagement pictures in all of them and will have tea chandles on the tables as well as in the small jars
There’s a lot more but this is a lot already. So opinions on any of these?
