This shows my DIY roses (from fifty flowers & Queen Anne’s lace hand-picked), vases collected from mom, mil, and flea markets, Reserved Signs made from fabric used on my favor jam jars w/ fabric paint, DIY chalkboard mugs and straw tags (I also did wine glasses with the chalkboard base for the head table), and Thank You cards – there were 3 versions each with a different back – I Spy, Mad Lib, or Crossword. Each place setting had a paper doily.
DIY sign for the ceremony made from an old frame painted white, with burlap stapled to the back. Letters hand-drawn with fabric paint. I made a 2nd sign that said “Happily Ever After Starts Here”.
jam favors – we had 4 flavors, Grape, Mixed Berry, Apple and Strawberry all homemade by my mom, Mil, and myself. We put them into 4 oz jars and cut the fabric squares for each. I designed the tags, the front had our monogram, and back said “Spread the Love” with a space where we wrote in the flavor, and instructions for storing/refrigerating. I also made the chalkboard from a $1 tray from the Dollar Tree with chalkboard paint from Walmart.
My DIY flower girl tutu’s. For any future brides who do this make them much longer than needed! They bunched up horribly but were still adorable. I used 3″ rolls from papermart and tied the strips onto elastic. Took waaay more tulle than I anticipated. The girls wore white tshirts from Justice and leggings from Old Navy underneath. They each carried bouquets of garden roses we DIY’d from Fifty Flowers.
DIY photo props my stepdaughter and I made. These were a big hit! We didn’t do the full ‘photo booth’ but had these at the bar and I saw them everywhere throughout the night. Even overheard the comment that “we have to have these at our wedding!”
DIY chalkboard made from an old window frame and with chalkboard paint on matte board. I hand-drew the letters.
DIY LOVE banner made with burlap, fabric paint, and lace. We used this for our engagement pictures (shown) and then had it draped on the cake table at the reception.
My DIY monogram, and invitation suite. The stamps are all vintage that I got off of ebay (for cheaper than regular postage). The card box is DIY from a vintage fishing tackle box and DIY banner from burlap and bakers twince. The invitation suite was also tied with bakers twince.
Not a great picture but this shows my photo line… made with leftover bakers twine and mini-clothespins. I printed the photos all with a border and bw for a vintage look. The photos at the bottom were a last-minute ad with parents/grandparents wedding photos.
Whew. Thats a lot! Sooo much fun seeing all the DIY projects come together and I haven’t even gotten pro pics yet! I also DIY’d our cake topper (can add later), programs, bubbles, bathroom signs, chalkboard menu, drink sign, cards banner from burlap, etc. etc.
