I've been working on a lot of projects for the wedding myself.. because, let's face it:
1) I love doing crafty things
2) I'm kind of a control freak and want everything to be perfect! lol
I wanted something cute for the table numbers and had a hard time deciding what to do. Then I saw these adorable easels and canvases at the craft store! Poof! I had it. I also made some cute little penguins (their kind of our thing). If anyone knows where i could get a little top hat and veil for them, let me know :)
I also started working on my bridesmaid bags. My girls have been so good to me, I want to make sure they get something really fabulous and personal. These were really easy to make and they look so cute! Black canvas, cotton lining, canvas straps and some cute green letters pulled this all together!
Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, one of my favorite parts of the Christmas season was the sidewalks lined with luminaries. I remember helping my dad set them up a few times, and they remind me of home. So, it is only fitting that we have our own luminaries at our wedding in December. I made these using mason jars, die cut paper, opaque paper and double sided tape. I still need to trim down the top, but they look great so far! I am excited about walking down a candle lit aisle!
I also really loved the monogram ideas that I have been finding all over the internet and wanted to do one for us. I found some paper mache letters at the craft store and went at it. They look really modern and chic which I love! (See the finished product in the last picture below)
Next up, I got an unfinished picture frame and wanted to create a cute frame to put on the escort card table at the reception. I used my adorable black and white fabric, some batting, and my hot glue gun to make the magic happen. It looks really cute, and soon I'll have our engagement pictures printed out to put in it! :)
So here's everything so far!
Getting so excited about our wedding! It's less than three months away!
