Our Wedding!

 Today is our first anniversary!  I cannot believe it has been a year already... it still feels like yesterday!  The entire day was perfect and I would not have changed a thing!  Enjoy checking out our decor for any brides looking for inspiration!
I found something similar to this on Etsy and decided to make it myself to save some money.  I used Word and was able to recreate almost the exact thing.  I bought the frame from the dollar store and it added a nice personal touch to the front table.

You can never go wrong with painted wine bottles!  I did three coats and they turned out great!

I got wooden letters from Michael's and painted them.

This was the sign for our guest book.  I found this image on Google and reused the frame from my shower.

The front entrance table turned out great!

Our beautiful cake!  Each layer was a different flavor... I cannot wait to eat our anniversary layer!

Wedding Bells

I wanted something for our exit out of the reception hall at the conclusion of the wedding so we decided to make wedding bells!  
Wooden sticks
Ribbon- I used two colors and it looked great together.

I attached all of the bells to one color of ribbon.

Then I tied on both colors to the top of the stick.

I twisted the ribbon down to the bottom and used hot glue to attach the ribbon at the very bottom.  I also added some ribbon to the top to hang as additional decoration.

We put them in glass jars for the guests to grab on their way out!  They held up great!

Wedding Shower

My sister did an AMAZING job with my wedding shower.  She made all of the cookies herself and decorated beautifully!  I cannot wait to return the favor for her one day!  

How cute are the favors?!  They are soap inside of a cupcake liner with a loofah on top!  They are adorable!  We played two games at the shower that made everyone laugh.  The first game was a Scattergories game where we had to list things using the letters MRS.  The second game was how well we know the bride.  There were quite a few funny responses.

All of the guests signed the "G" and wrote a date night idea on a Popsicle stick.  I now have a jar filled with fun date night ideas!

Each balloon had a picture of us on it.  This was one of my favorite things at the shower!

Gifts from my Maid of Honor!

My lovely Maid of Honor (AKA sister) made me some fun gifts to help begin the process!

This is a ring holder for those moments when I must take it off.

This one is for my fiance and includes protein bars of all types to help him handle the chaos!

If you are ever a bridesmaid these are fun and unique handmade gifts that any bride would love!

Will You Be My Bridesmaid?

I wanted to do something fun to ask my bridesmaids if they would be in my wedding.  I found this cute and inexpensive idea for a postcard on Zazzle!


The back has pictures of me with each girl and the question!
