DIY Save the Dates

I really wanted to make my own save the dates. I wanted them to be simple, yet reflect a touch of my own creativity. 

This is what I came up with, pre-full assembly:  I just designed the layout on Microsoft Word. I downloaded various fonts and bought laurel images to tie eveything together. Pictures were easily developed from Costco. 

Paper Flower Photo Backdrop

I love those white paper flower backdrops you are bound to come across when you look up wedding ideas. I just knew I had to incorporate them in my wedding somehow and decided to make a big wall of them for the backdrop of our photo area.

I’ve been cutting and glueing a few together. 



My plan is to glue these flowers onto 3 pieces of drywall and assemble together at our venue. 

I will be sharing an update once I start putting this together! 

DIY Wedding Bouquet

I have been looking up videos and reading up on doing your own wedding flowers and it always looks so doable and easy to me. Even so, I know I had to actually try it out and see how it turns out in reality.

I finally paid a visit to a flower shop. The selection there could have been better and have more variety, but I picked up what I thought would work together and would go with the colors I have in mind.

This is what I left with: some eucalyptus leaves, wax flowers, hydrangeas, & roses.

This is what I ended up with:

It isn’t exactly what I want for my bouquet, but I’m pretty happy with it. I might give it another try with different flowers and I also found out I do not like the smell of wax flowers so I probably won’t be using it as a filler next time.
