So cute! I’m not very crafty but I have done some DIY stuff.

This is inspiration I got from Michael’s.

( the flowers )

This is how I plan on setting up mine (without the burlap so far)

Obviously not that straight either.. that’s just the idea lol.

I made my card box.

This will go on our guestbook/card table (scattered around) and I recently bought a silver “&” sign also.


And although I didn’t make the templates, I did hand cut all my invitations & RSVP cards (all 190 pairs of them!)

That was just the beginning..

This was my ceremony altar I made, probably costs around $150 for everything?

I’m happy with the results but I don’t feel the invites and sign were worth the amount of time they took to make.

But I have no regrets on any of my ribbon projects. I really enjoy all the ribbon projects because I can watch TV while I do them easier than any of the other projects. Plus stencils and cutting paper stresses me out more than I realized.

Our table names were tv series that we really loved… Frasier, The Wire, Sopranos, South Park, etc… 16 in total. We had a friend photoshop our faces onto the DVD covers.


I think its cool to see so many brides put this some DIY effort into their weddings. Good to know I wasn’t the only poor soul staying up doing these things ๐Ÿ˜‰
