- Wedding: June 2012
My last recap of our wedding! This one is all of the details and DIY projects that we did for the wedding. There are a lot of pictures and details, but when I was planning I always found these kind of pictures helpful so I figured I would post a lot of them
All photos unless noted were taken by our lovely photographer Megan Keating! If you pin one of our pictures PLEASE give her credit in your text! It would sadden me so much to see her pictures going around pinterest without her getting credit.
If you have any questions about any of the projects I would be happy to answer them! I could do a tutorial for a project if someone wants a more detailed tutorial I would be happy to put one together. So, here are the details!
My bouquet (made by a florist) and the BM’s bouquets. The Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets were totally DIY. We picked the lavender from a local lavender farm and then the BMs put the bouquets together themselves the morning of the wedding.
My bouquet was wraped with lace from my Mom’s headpiece and dress from her wedding. I also had charms on my bouquet. The heart and the cross are from a necklace I wear almost everyday. The blue pearl charm was from my Mom and has our wedding date on it.
We also picked the lavender for the GM’s bouts and my BMs put them together as well.
MY cowboy boots and shoes I wore
My jewlery by Meg Jewlery
My toss garter made by hellodesigncrew on Etsy. My other garter was my Mom’s hand tatted garter from her wedding.
Detail on the end my veil. It was my something borrowed from my SIL and my Mother-In-Law made it for her to wear at her wedding. Her maddien last name (my new last name) and her new last name both start with “S”. There were also crystals all over the veil.
Our DIY programs
DIY ring dish that held our rings for our ring warming. I was inspired by Mrs. Hippo’s ring warming!
A handkerchief I gave to my Mom at the rehersal dinner. I got her handkerchief, one for my Dad and Mother-In-Law from the Etsy shop Sophie Li
Our sweetheart table. The mirrors are always at the venue and the chandiler was a rental availble from the venue. The doilies on our table were hand made by my grandmother.
The table setting at our sweetheart table. As I said before the doilies were hand crochet by my grandmother. All the silver was from my other grandmother.
DIY Mr. and Mrs. signs for our chairs
Our all candle centerpieces. The sunday dishes and votive candle holders were borrowed from my Mother-In-Law who had them from my SIL’s wedding. The votives were soy votives that burned through the whole 3-4 hour reception. All the other candles and and holders were from the dollar tree!! The tall candles were the real steal because it was $1 for the candle and the glass, plus they burned for like 8 hours! I collected all the doilies from antique shops and ebay. The pitcure frames were from Ikea and the table numbers were designed by one of my BMs to match the invitations and menu cards.
The menu card that one of my BMs designed and we had them printed ourselves. There was a thank you on the other side and every other place setting had the menu card up. Each place setting had a sprig of lavender on it.

The thank you side to the menu card. (I’m a little bummed they didn’t get one where the napkin was folded correctly)
100% DIY cake pop favors! I labored over these!! I made them by hand, decorated them, made all the tags and bagged them, it was quite a process.

DIY Escort cards. I watercolored them to get the right color and my Mom wrote all the tags. Thank goodness she has great handwriting!
DIY sign at the enterance to the venue. My Maid/Matron of Honor was in a different state from me during planning and she helped me SO much by making this sign and the ceremony/reception sign.

Made from scratch Tom Collins. We juiced all the lemons for the mix and made the lime garnishes.
Our tom collins all together. I don’t know where the lime green bendy straws came from, but I wish they weren’t even there. Oh well…
Sausage and roasted garlic appetizers
First course cesar salads
Main entree of tri-tip
Our cake with lyrics from one of our favorite songs. Cake topper made by Milan Creations on Etsy. The lace table cloth was made by one of my grandmothers
