My DIY Wedding

Good morning, people! How is your week going? Today I wanted to show you some of the DIY projects me and my lovely bridesmaids did for my wedding. My maid of honor and one of my bridesmaids came from out of state the week before the wedding and we did all of the projects then. Yes. All of the projects for the wedding the week of. I was crazy holding off doing them for that long. So, if you are planning a wedding…

My DIY WeddingTip #1- start your projects before the week of your wedding. Ahem. Tip #2- get lots of help from bridesmaids/girlfriends. I had so much help from my girls. I am forever thankful for them. (Girls, if you’re reading this: I LOVE YOU!) Moving on to the projects….

Project #1- Paper banners

DIY Wedding Favors    We had one for “cards” and for “favors”. We just cut little triangles out for scrapbook paper and glued them onto ribbon. Super simple. 🙂 Oh- and those bagged M&M’s? Don’t even ask about the drama with those. We filled and tied over 300 of those little bags. And didn’t eat the M&M’s. Talk about self-control.

Project #2- Ring Bearer Pillows

DIY Ring Bearer PillowsWe just sewed four pieces of burlap into two pillows, then tied a lace ribbon around them, finishing it off in a bow on top. Again, super simple, but more time consuming. I had two ring bearers, that’s why I had to make two pillows.

Project #3-Flower girl pail

DIY Flower Girl PailThis project was done the night before the wedding. We bought just a plain ol’ pail, and then hot glued 2 layers of different color purple ribbons along the top.

Project #4- Fabric Backdrops

DIY Wedding BackdropDIY Wedding ReceptionWe made TWO 10ftx10ft ripped fabric backdrops for the wedding. Talk about time consuming. Seriously. Never want to do that again. They turned out gorgeous, and I am so thankful I had one for the ceremony and one for the reception, but I am so thankful for creative friends who made the process way easier! (Thank you, Olivia!)

Project #5- Burlap Banners

DIY Wedding IdeasDIY Wedding BannersDIY Wedding Reception IdeasThese were SO amazingly cute- it totally tied the reception together. As you can see, my girls made quite a few. We had “Mr”, “Mrs”, “Desserts” and “Drinks”.

Well, those were the main DIY projects we did for the wedding. And of course, my woodstumps were woven through there as well. You also got a little peek into our wedding. The whole thing was perfect for us. Simple, country, woodsy….so us. And I loved every minute of it.
