Hey Guys! I've been all over the place trying to get my ducks in a row for this wedding. Here's some things I've been working on and the inspiration behind it all.
So I saw the idea of using a sweet, little birdcage for cards and such instead of creating the traditional box with a slit on top. How adorable is this? I mean really!
My future mother-in-law (fmil) got us this birdcage and I thought that it was so romantic. You can slide in a card on the top and sides. I'm pretty excited about it!
So I'm sure that you might remember seeing this picture before. There are some amazing doors that look pretty similar to these at my venue that we can can hang our letters from (P.S. how awesome is it that our monogram is R&B). The doors at our venue have vintage loop knockers, so it will be as simple as tying them on.
Of course my awesome fmil got these from Hobby Lobby. I'm contemplating on spray painting them, but I haven't decided what color yet.What do you think?
I picked up these cute jars as an addition to our candy bar. We haven't decided what kind of goodies we're going to fill them with yet, but I'm sure that they will include some combination sour punch and gummies.
Remember my "all bottled up" post? Well, we're up to 34 wine bottles! A little while ago I spray painted a beer bottle to see if the color would work out. Yesterday I bought some flowers and did a little mock up. I'm absolutely in love with it, and I can't wait to see them in clusters. We filled the bottle with carnations, white daisies, and some greenery (my fmil did the arrangement) and it turned out adorable. Imagine them sitting on chocolate linen and an orange frame for the table number. I can't tell you how excited I am! (And yes, we love cocktails in this house, lol!)
So after being completely overwhelmed by the price for bouquets yesterday I decided to experiment with actually making one. Here's the first one I made (above).

The third one I made.
As my first attempt, I think they turned out pretty decent. I only spent $30 on flowers total. I'm going to keep practicing with more flowers, but I really think that I may end up turning to Publix for all of the boutonnieres and corsages (they had lovely orchid corsages for only $3), making the centerpieces and bridesmaid bouquets with flowers bought in bulk (more than likely from Costco), and having mine professionally made. Hey, this girl's gotta budget, but you know what, I think that everything will still turn out absolutely gorgeous!
