DIY Madness

To remind myself that I sometimes let the arts and crafts get out of hand, I chronicle below the do-it-yourself projects I undertook for the wedding:

  1. Our wedding website

    our wedding website, where we provided information and collected RSVPs

  2. Pennant garlands galore (at least 50 yards of this stuff — contact me if you want to buy it!)

    a garland of pennants in five different fabrics

  3. Save-the-date cards: Chris and I set up an assembly line
  4. Invitations: more assembly lines for cutting out the inserts (seen here), compiling the pocket cards, and stamping the seal (Chris’s idea!) — but only the stamping process is seen here

    and here’s the final product

    our pocket invitations

  5. My shoes: I painted these $40 black peep-toe pumps

    Lulu Townsend Bridal Nightout Pump -- surprisingly comfortable!

    and turned them into these

    purple glitter shoes -- a little craft paint goes a long way

  6. Our wedding tree (in lieu of a guestbook)

  7. Pomanders for the aisle

    two-tiered pomanders = the most time-consuming project

  8. Ribbon sticks for the guests during the ceremony (these are for sale, too — contact if interested)
