One year ago we were deep, and I mean DEEP, in the final stages of my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding plans. We were hoping the weather was going to continue to cooperate and that we hadn’t forgotten anything important. I expected us all to be in a state of chaos and insanity at that point, but it was kind of the opposite. Everything went well, and we were able to actually enjoy that time without anyone falling apart. The year since has gone by like a rocket. The Mr. and Mrs. are happy and doing well, and I’m still forgetting once in a while that I don’t need that cute thing in the craft store that would be perfect for the wedding. It’s a happy memory for all of us, but for those of you on the other side of the planning tunnel, there are lots of great DIY ideas out there to make the day special.
I love this Something Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Pin from Something Turquoise. It’s a great way to cover the tradition and a nice keepsake.
Sometimes simple is the way to go, especially when it comes to weddings. This lovely little ring pillow from Elephantine is cute and easy to make.
My daughter considered a birdcage veil, before she decided to use mine, and it would have been fun to make with this tutorial from Wedding Chicks.
If you plan to go with some tossing confetti to wrap up the night, why not make these Confetti Sticks from Best Friends for Frosting?
These Neon Paper Dahlias from Ashlee Marie make a big, bold statement without too much financial investment.
Succulents are so popular right now, and they’re very easy to plant and grow. These Succulent Wedding Favors from Smarty had a Party would be an inexpensive and easy gift for your guests.
These Mr. and Mrs. Blocks from Mod Podge Rocks would make great wedding décor, then transition to home décor afterward.
I know this bouquet is a little ambitious, but these origami paper flowers won’t die, so you can take your time making it. Visit Capitol Romance to get the how-to.
