Of course, this D.I.Y. girl had to get her hands dirty (with paint & glitter) for one of the biggest events of her life!
Here’s a small list of all the projects we’ve been working for our upcoming ceremony:

  • Spray-painted and glittered jars, bottles and votives for decor
  • Made burlap & sequin table runners
  • Built and spray-painted our wedding ‘arch’ out of pvc pipe
  • Designed & ‘punched’ round labels for our favor jars
  • Decorated large wooden spools to use as dessert/ food stands
  • Made my ‘faux’-quet from silk, feather & sola wood flowers
  • Made my veil (correction – made three veils in which the first two got shredded by the cat)
  • Spruced up my wedding shoes
  • Made a rhinestone crystal sash (which I’m not using and will probably turn into a headband)

Still on the ‘Need-To-Finish-Quick!’ list:

  • Make this geometric heart for our arch
  • Make tissue tassel garlands
  • Design & print ‘offline wedding’ sign
  • Frame our invite as a guest sign-in book
  • Figured out a card box/ basket
  • Add flowers, succulents and candles to those spray-painted jars

Cross your fingers that we finish everything on time and are able to get all this ‘stuff’ out of our apartment and over to the event space! We say our vows in less than two weeks – I am getting so excited!
