Well…this is a tad delayed! But considering it is our 1 year anniversary I thought I should probably share the rest of our wedding pics! You can see the first set HERE or the Style Me Pretty post! These are more of the detail shots, but as you can see I really went to town on the whole DIY thing as well as my love of Mid-Century Modern. From doing our own flower bouquets (thanks to Flower Muse), the gold urchins for the tables, feather pens, homemade banana bread, printing out the dinner menus, and the gold darts that held the place cards. You’ll notice I tried to incorporate the smallest of details ;) – PS sorry about the abundance of photos!!
To save on money, I decided to just use greenery for our centerpieces (and well, because as you know I love my green leaves)! So Salt Harbor designs had my favorite white mid-century modern vases and pulled together a variety of different leaves to create a beautiful mix of centerpieces.
BONUS: Our event space, The Atrium, allowed us to bring in our own beer and wine (YIPPEE) that was a huge cost saving item!
You can see here I spray painted gold darts (and made a cut in them) for our place card holders. My husband is obsessed with sports/games/etc and is quite the fan of playing darts..so it only made sense!
Another detail I knew I wanted to do was hand-write a thank you card to each guest (since we only had 32). It gave me the opportunity to really thank them for traveling for our wedding! And on the flip side since we used to love crossword puzzles I created a custom one about us and our family. With that I made feather pens for each person (considering I had feathers on my dress ;) that were spray painted gold.
See more details after the jump!!
The menu’s were so easy to make! I bought the bags at Michaels, created the menu in illustrator, saved as a PDF and then just printed them out on my inkjet printer. The bags worked perfectly in my printer!
Instead of doing favors a couple of my girls and I spent one of the nights making banana bread (one of my favorites) in mason jars (so they could take with them on their flights home). They were a hit..and SO DELICIOUS, and were perfect heated up the next morning for breakfast.
I also made a little backdrop so you can take some pics in front of…easy to make and to travel with ;)
