Well, here we are. The wedding is tomorrow, and believe it or not, I think we’re actually ready for it. I’m sure there’s something we’re forgetting and I’m counting on a day-of disaster, but at the end of it all they’ll be married and we will have spent time celebrating that with friends and family. I’m just hoping that whatever happens makes for a good story we can laugh about later.
We spent a lot of time deciding on a fun guest book. I can’t say which idea won yet, but a close second is this Jenga Guestbook from Crafty Morning. You could reminisce about your wedding and guests every time you play it.
There are so many beautiful, unique wedding invitations out there. One that particularly caught my attention was this round version from Voyages of the Creative Variety. How fun would this be to receive?
Tables generally need centerpieces, and if you have a lot of tables that becomes quite a project. These little Candle Lampshades from Good Housekeeping would be fairly inexpensive, cute and provide a little mood lighting.
If you’re assigning seats, you also need numbers. We used some galvanized metal in my daughter’s wedding, so these Numbered Tags from The Country Chic Cottage caught my attention. It’s hard to believe these aren’t actually metal.
It takes a brave soul to DIY a wedding cake, but it can definitely be done. I love the clever use of a common candy on this Candy Wafer Cake from Intimate Weddings.
Cake toppers have come a long way since I got married. No longer stuck with some variation of a bride and groom, people have gotten very creative. I love the use of vintage fabric on this Star Cake Topper from Project Wedding.
This entire wedding on OneWed is gorgeous, with bright color everywhere, but my very favorite thing is the colorful underskirt on the bride.
We’ve found decorating an outdoor venue is a bit challenging. Trying to find the balance between too much and not enough is tough. These Pom Pom Vines from Once Wed would be a great way to add some color without going overboard.
This Felt Wedding Bouquet from Something Turquoise is to die for, and they explain how to make every bit of it. In fact, if you’re in the market for wedding ideas, they have SO many good ones.
As long as we’re talking about a felt bouquet, why not also go with fabric corsages as well? Check out the tutorial from Little Treasures.
Wish me luck tomorrow…I’ll see you on the other side!
