Hi Everyone! Last weekend my step-nephew (Brother-in Law Greg's son) Doug got married! Maddie is a crafter as well as practical. She wanted in what is today's standards, a simple ceremony. As the pastor said, it was refreshing to see the focus be on the couple and ceremony. It started with a hand-made wedding invitation. And went from there!
Maddie turned to Pinterest to help her create her wedding's decorations and party favors. It meant a lot to her to make these herself ( sound familiar to us all?). Maybe some saved her money, maybe some didn't, but I LOVED ALL her touches. She even made the backdrop shown above!
SO CASEing (Copy and Share Everything) this idea for my next event. Might not be for guests but it's so cool! Guest signed heart shaped wood elements with a Sharpie. I'm sure she will put these in some awesome vase or light base! She painted Ball mason jars and filled with artificial flowers.
The church's worship room was used for the ceremony - then tables and chairs where brought in for the reception which immediately followed.
Here another luggage case was used for wedding cards.
And a burlap GIFT banner hung above the gift tables.
Another CASEd item in my future is the guests' party favors. Such a cute take away to continue the celebration at home! The tag line reads " Have a glass to share at home with your main squeeze." Small containers filled with lemonade drink mix!
I loved Maddie's special details for her wedding and I know she will always be proud of making it special for her new husband, the wedding party, and family and friends who attending. Best Wishes Maddie & Doug!
