My 'somewhat' DIY Wedding

I've had this blog for a few months now, and I have put up some posts about my wedding.  I've noticed in my 'stats' that people are often seeing my stuff and then 'googling' for it again!  (yay!)  So if you are a DIY Bride, I created this page to help you.  Since my wedding projects are randomly all over my blog, this will link to the posts for more info.  

Don't hesitate to send me an email if you want more explanation!  
I'd LOVE to help.

p.s. Here's a list of the other things I made for our wedding that I haven't posted about yet.
Let me know if you want more info:

Table Runners
Wedding Day Survival Kit
folded scarves for the guys suit pockets
ceremony program
shower invitations
wedding invitations (including printing of envelopes and response cards)
Favor was an apple pie recipe card that we made
Sign a Fabric Square instead of a guestbook (will be made into a quilt someday)
gifts for attendants
Flower girl sash
sheesh... no wonder I was so busy.....


I used these for the flower girl dress and for ribbon corsages.



I made these to hold my ceremony program together.


The centerpieces matched the tablerunners.  Different ribbons were used and different sized cans.  Fake flowers, bling, and ribbons were in the center!

The picture links to a tutorial for making the bling for your centerpiece or bouquet.  DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY on the gaudy stuff at the store!


Thank you cards

I used these for all of my shower gifts.  SO cost effective.


This was one of my favorite projects.

The colors you chose are so fun! I would love to see a quilt from the guest fabric squares...what an awesome idea.
