I Do Part Two

View More: http://forageandfilm.pass.us/c-z-wedding

Today marks 2 months of marriage, so it seems appropriate to share all the little details + DIYs from our wedding. The designer in me wanted to create every little detail imaginable  for the wedding, but I knew realistically this was not possible (and would make it 1000 times more stressful), so I had to carefully pick and choose what I’d DIY and what I’d leave to the professionals.

First up was the stationary. Hands down I knew I would create any and all paper goods from save the dates to invites to programs and everything else in between. Along the same line, any handwritten signage (welcome signs, menus, placecards, etc.) were definitely on my DIY list. If you are confident in your handwriting and/or photoshop skills, this is an easy and fun DIY for any bride to be.

Another fun DIY I tackled was our centerpieces (well, pretty much all the decor). I had friends and family save up wine bottles, my mom and I removed all the labels, and we filled them with dried lavender and fresh baby’s breath. Simple to create, but the result was exactly what I envisioned.

One of my favorite crafts was the alter. I ordered fabric in a few neutrals and mint tones to match our color scheme, cut the fabric into streamers, and tied them to cording to create a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony (and our sweetheart table at the reception).

Some other DIY projects I tackled: props for the Polaroid guest book, place settings, and favors. So what didn’t I DIY? One of the big ones I decided to pass on was the bouquets and bouts. I tossed around the idea of doing these myself, but the thought of putting them all together the day before the wedding seemed like the last thing I’d want to worry about. Plus I ended up deciding on some beautiful dried arrangements from Etsy. I also left the food and dessert to professionals. Were you or are you planning to craft for your upcoming nuptials? Comment below and share your ideas!

  1. Isn't She Crafty

    It was making my wedding invitations which helped push me from a cross stitch addict into papercraft. I made 52 gold cross stitch butterflies for our invitations and it was months till I could pick up a needle again x
