I love how you displayed your homebrew! We made our own beer and designed labels for our wedding favors as well. 🙂

@Gerbera: i bet they were a hit!! our guests loooooved the homebrew. we’ve been making it for a few years now, so we just had to share it with out guests as their favors. we also had bottles of classic cokes for our guests under 21, and those who didn’t care for beer. the beer was long gone, though, so i’m pretty sure most everyone opted for beer!

@simplifiedbride: LOVE your wedding! This is exactly how I envisioned mine! (which is why I am purchasing your tables numbers haha!) 🙂 What material are your banners? Did you use a stamp for the letters?

@simplifiedbride your DIY’s are stunning. I would also be curoius the material you used your for banner. Also how did you print the tags for the beer bottles? I would like to use something similar on our Out of Town bags. Thanks!

thanks everyone! i love to DIY, but i’m a perfectionist, so i didn’t want to take too much on. i’m so happy with how everything turned out!
@MrsTillerResq: & @BostonGirl5: the banners are just made from cardstock. i cut them to 5×7 and ran them through the printer. then i cut the angled ends w/ scissors, punched holes in the upper corners, put little brads through the holes to string them together, and hung them up with twine.
@BostonGirl5: for the tags, we ordered these http://www.envelopperinc.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=ENVLPR&Product_Code=KP10102
They’re called clean edge cards. Multiple tags to a page, and they just come right off. They are totally clean edged with no perferation whatsoever. They were amazing, and turned out really well. They have a .doc or .pdf template that you can use to line up your text, and I printed them at home.

@Ms. Stallion: the photobooth backdrop was made using Mrs. Pin Cushion’s tutorial. http://www.weddingbee.com/2011/12/15/faux-to-booth-pvc-style/ It was super easy, and only about $15 for the pvc parts. You could use any fabric you want, I used a shower curtain. All together I spent about $100 on the photobooth, a steal compared to renting one!
@Chay: thanks! it was fun. 🙂
@MissTX: thanks, i’m sure you can do it, too! it’s not that hard, but DIY does take time. 😉
