Wedding Planning!

I just wanted to share some of the images of our wedding planning so far...just no pictures of the dress!  ;-)

This is the ring that started it all. I am so in love with it. It is delicate, sparkly, and everything I could have dreamed of.


THIS is our venue. A beautiful, vintage restored barn. Complete with stained glass hanging from the ceiling!


These are our invitations, I love love them! We printed them ourselves, and I think they turned out great!




 I love the unique wording we chose for our rsvps cards....take a look!

Also, along the way, we made these utensil holders. We ended up deciding not to use them, and to go another route. But, they were cute!


PLEASE SEE WEDDING INVITATION AND UTENSIL HOW-TO POST HERE


And last, but not least...this is how I asked my ladies to be part of our big day! My mom and I made the cupcakes ourselves. I bought the package and the ribbon and put them together!




This has been so fun! I cannot wait until the big day, and to see how all of this hard work comes together!


xoxo

  1. Hi Amanda! I absolutely LOVE the invites you made. I am getting married in March 2014 and would like to DIY my invites as well but have no clue where to start! Could you list the materials/items that you used and how much of each? I'm trying to make these in the most cost efficient way! Thanks so much!

    1. Oh my gosh! They were so easy and inexpensive!

      I got them at Michaels. They were $40 for a box set of 30 (+ you can use 40% coupon!) . It had everything you need in the kit. Invites and RSVPs. I printed them at home, you get the template from a website that's written on the box. They also have the wedding programs at Michales but I chose not to use them. The only thing I did different was download some free Fonts from online because I wanted a certain look.

      Let me know if you need any other help or info! Our wedding is in 2 weeks, so check back for some more DIY posts!
