I must have had at least 4 dozen waters for our Out of Town Bags, our vendors, and Bridal and Groom Suite. I designed the water labels in Photoshop, printed on waterproof paper and adhered with mini glue dots. I had a great Bridesmaid who helped assemble them.
The Programs were one of the most time consuming projects, but so worth the effort. The Programs were also designed in Photoshop and later printed on 6 x 15 ultra white card cover and then folded into three sections Cover, Ceremony, and Wedding Party. We then wrapped and tied the program together with a purple ribbon. We used a Bone Folder from Martha Stewart for scoring the edges smooth.
The table numbers were so much fun to make. We used different size silver picture frames to display the table names. The table names were all words related to love such as Love, Cherish, Peach, Forever, etc. I printed the table numbers and then used jewel glue to adhere the luster glass microbeads in amethyst from Martha Stewart.
I made these Bride and Groom signs for our chairs using a little bit of ribbon, scrapbook paper and glue.
Okay I may have forgotten how long these took, but these too were worth the effort. I went to my favorite designing software, Photoshop, to make the monogram and to design the overall invitation, direction, reception, and RSVP card. I made a belly band using soft plum paper and made the individual tags using a combination of pearl paper, labels in the size of 2″ circles, and a small gem for the end of the letter of G for a little added detail.
I purchased these white take out containers to use for our Candy Bar for the guests to fill up with their favorite treats. I wrapped each with plum colored ribbon and made the individual tags as I did for the invitations.
Other DIY projects included, signs for the Candy Bar, Menus for the table, Place Cards, Bathroom Signs for the Grab and Go Baskets, and I’m sure there are more I am missing. I had so much fun crafting each piece of this wedding!
