I ordered Cruize's coming home outfit from Antsy Pants on etsy. Isn't it so cute! It matches his nursery of course. I also ordered a matching navy, grey, and white crochet hat but it was too big. This one ended up fitting perfectly.
Yahhh I found a picture of our candy bags. I bought avery stickers from Staples. You'll have to go to their website to download the template. The directions are written on the box if you get confused. I printed the labels on my basic $40 inkjet printer. I'm not sure if you can read what it says. It says:
I'm sure you can tell by now I like to be a little different. I didn't want a traditional wedding so of course we couldn't have a traditional cake. We decided to have cupcakes instead. We did have a little cake topper for us to cut. I told my husband no cake fight. He didn't listen as you can see :) haha.
You can't see them in these pictures but I did DIY cupcake wrappers. They were super easy to make but very time consuming. Off Beat Bride has the tutorial I used to make mine. Check it out!
When we finally decided our wedding was going to have a vintage theme I envisioned a chandelier hanging above the alter. I got my wish :). We also bought a huge chandelier that was hung above our table. Aren't they beautiful?
I ordered the small chandelier off of Amazon for ($45) I ordered the big one from Wake Up Frankie for($145)
It would have been perfect to give out golf balls and t's as our party favor since we got married at a golf course but that just wasn't our style. We both LOVE sweets so we decided to have a candy bar. It was a hit especially with the kiddos.
I got all of the candy from Sweeties. I saved a few bucks going local as opposed to online. Sweeties actually had better deals and more of the color options I was looking for anyway. All of the candy I chose was white, black, grey, and silver. I bought black shiny coffee bags online. I also bought cirular sticker labels (from Staples) and rectangular place card labels that had silver trim (from Joanns). I printed the same saying it says in the frame below onto the circular labels and stuck them to the coffee bags. Then I printed the name of each candy on the place card labels.
I thought a candy bar would be a cheap party favor. HA! Boy was I wrong. After the wedding I added it all up and we spent around $550 on vases ($100 at Wal-Mart), candy ($350), candy scoops ($50), bags, and labels ($50). Well you only get married once, right. It was $$$ well spent.
I ordered these from a gal named Monica and I just love how they turned out! Click here to see her etsy page although I think she's on leave.
The seating chart is kind of a DIY project. She sent me the pdf file and I had to have it printed at Kinko's. I bought a black poster board and used spray adhesive to adhere it. This custom seating chart cost me a total of $60.
She made these damask votive holders for my remembrance shrine too.
Here is another one of my many DIY projects I did for my wedding. I bought this birdcage at Ross for $15 btw. I spray painted it silver and attached a piece of black ribbon to it with double sided tape (Elmer's is the best). I printed a label that said cards and placed it where the two ends of the ribbon met. And there she is. Easy peasy!
I made confetti cones to place on the arm of each chair during our ceremony. This is not a quick DIY project. I made 150 of these and it took me a few weeks to get them done. I ended up making 75 white confetti cones with sayings and 75 solid black confetti cones. Don't limit yourself to plain ol' white. Get crazy! Use colored paper or floral print would look awesome as well.
Things you'll need:
thick Paper (I used black and white paper I bought from Hobby Lobby)
double stick tape (I highly recommend Elmer's double sided tape)
good scissors or paper cutter
ink jet printer
Cut the paper down to 6″ squares.
Lay the square on a flat surface.
Take one edge and start to lightly fold up to the corner across from it. You're goal is to make them into the shape of a cone. It took me a couple tries to get the hang of it.
Run double stick tape along the inside of the edge you were folding.
Then create your labels with the saying of your choice. I printed them on plain white paper. Mine said… After “I Do” Please shower the newlyweds as they walk down the aisle.
Cut them out.
Adhere the labels to the top of the triangle part of the cone.
Hole punch above the saying.
Put the ribbon through the hole and tie it in a bow.
One of the gifts I gave each girl in my bridal party was a custom hair piece to wear in their hair on my wedding day. I gave my matron of honor, bridesmaids, and junior bridemaids a feather/brooch clip that was similar to the one I wore but smaller. And I gave the flower girls brooch headbands. Again, I'm sorry I didn't get any close ups but you get the idea.
