Ribbons were nearly the death of me.

Two nights ago I came home from work and decided to spend the hours before bed working on wedding projects. The first project that came to mind, and probably the biggest, was centerpieces….so off I went. Well after about 30 minutes of fussing over the bows (that I couldn’t tie without it being crooked) I […]

Wedding Crafts: Decorations and Save the Dates

The following are projects I have completed this last week. I am so excited the “to-do” list is getting smaller! 1. Mr and Mrs signs for head table 2. Decorative “M’s” that will hang on the door of the reception. I used a self adhesive vellum scrapbooking page to make these letters. They will hang […]

Wedding Crafts: Card Box

I purchased these square boxes from Joann fabrics using a coupon they were only $9.00. First step I cut a hole between the middle and bottom box. This will be the place where the cards will fall. Then I used hot glue to glue the lids to the top and middle boxes shut. The only […]

Wedding Crafts: The Guest Book

So I knew right away I didn’t want to do your typical sign-your-name guestbook at our wedding, so I began the search to find the perfect idea. This was my inspiration for our guest book. I fell in love with the vintage feel of it. And I like that guests can write meaningful passages to […]

Weddindg Crafts: DIY Garter

A few months back I purchased a plain white garter during a store closing sale for $2.00. I knew from the day I purchased it I wanted to “spruce” it up a bit, but I wasn’t sure how I was going to do it. I was bit by the DIY bug late last night and […]

Wedding Update

Wow, so much has happened and I haven’t been very good at sharing. So I graduated Grad school, moved to closer to friends and family, and started working a new job. Needless to say with all that going on I haven’t been very good at getting things done for our wedding. I can’t believe how […]

Wedding Registry

Another wedding check…..completing the registery. In July we ventured to Target and  Bed, Bath, and Beyond. And although Jacob attempted to register for the limited edition Mario Wii, we completed the registery and we had fun. We got to experience two completely different ways of registery. Target gave us a gun and said “have fun […]

Lists, lists, lists……

T-minus 303 days until I am getting married!! Hello all! So to keep myself sane during this wedding planning adventure I use lists. Lists to organize what is done, needs to be done, and what is in the process of being done for the wedding. So here it is….. Done: Dress ordered (going for my […]
