Wedding Flowers

Wedding flowers were one of the few things I had little control over. I knew that I wanted to use all of the milkglass vases we collected (seen here) but other than that I was pretty clueless (seen here). I pretty much left the entire process up to our florist and I'm glad I did because there was plenty of other random projects that took up all of my time!

Wedding Signs



One of my favorite DIY projects for our wedding was the signs. Ian helped cut and assemble them and I painted them. I loved how they turned out, but now I have NO idea what to do with them!

Escort Card Cookies

One of the craziest DIY projects I took on for our wedding was the escort card cookies. Our wedding theme was "Love is Sweet" and I wanted a way to tie my love of dessert into something other than the dessert bar. I had the brilliant idea of baking, decorating, and packaging close to 200 sugar cookies and despite the hard work I was really pleased with how they turned out. Of course I didn't even see them on the wedding day, but I did get a lot of positive feedback from our guests!

Bridesmaids Dresses

I wrote about finding Bridesmaids Dresses here and here and while it wasn't an easy process I couldn't be more pleased with how they turned out. All four of my girls were given the option to select ANY grey dress and it turned out they all liked the same one. Rather than force them into different dresses I decided that mismatched accessories would achieve my goal and above is the final result!

I cannot wait to share all of the projects I worked on leading up to our wedding, but here is another sneak peak...stay tuned to see how I use these yellow pieces on our wedding day!
