  • Wedding: October 2014

I’m doing a rustic-romance wedding.. no mason jars or burlap at all though. In its place will be lots of candles and lace.

I’m doing alot of hand-made signs [bought a wedding stencil pack that includes a bunch of differant stencils].

I’ve made my own std’s, and will make my own invites, as well as all other paper type goods [programs, menus, ect]

  • Wedding: September 2014 - Banff, Alberta

My theme is Autumn and “East meets West” with kind of a rustic vibe. FH is from Ontario so incorporating maple leaves and I am from the west so using wheat for bouquets and centerpieces. Colors are red, brown, beige, bronze, like autumn. Also using a bit of rice in our centerpieces to signify our time we lived in Japan. I am making homemade potpurri for the centerpieces as well. Wrapped around jars/vases will be twine and ribbon. Ribbon is used a lot, ribbon wall for the photobooth and ribbon wands for our ceremony exit. The venue is really rustic already so not adding much.

@Kimberr91: CHECK OUT THESE FLOWERS! WoW!!  They would be awesome for bouquets and bouts and look awesome with centerpiece flowers below.  I wish I could post the photos instead of just the link.

What about getting stemless wine glasses at dollartree for your drinking glasses?

@Kimberr91:  I don’t know if I have inspiratoin for you but I have compassion because I am in the SAME BOAT! I have been planning for a long time, but had to delay it and now I am like,”How do I get back in this?” “When do I book my venue?” “Do I do a DYI today?”

 

What I think I am going to try as a strategy is go back to my lists of DYI and pick up ONE project and see if that amps me back up 🙂
