Wedding Wednesday

January 12, 2011

Hello, hello!

I've been looking into d.i.y. projects for our wedding, and I'm happy to say that I've stumbled upon some really great ideas. There are even a few I'd like to get started on this week:

1. These DiY Pinwheels are super cute, and they come with a template. I especially like these because I think crafts like this cut down on our need for real flowers. Also, I've been hording paper in our wedding colors, so paper projects are a must.

2. I think these vintage wallpaper envelopes are an awesome idea for housing our wedding invitations. Luckily, a good friend of mine is helping me out with the invitations themselves, but I could totally spruce up some envelopes to make them extra special. All I need is some luck at the thrift store, or maybe some cute wrapping paper.

3. And last, but not least, I'm extending my obsession with burlap into our wedding. I'm hoping to incorporate tons and tons of neutrals and natural fibers.

There are seriously so many more ideas that I want to try, but I think this is enough to get me started for now.


Have a happy Wednesday. :)


  1. It looks like you are getting a real focus for it all. I sure like the little burlap flower pot with the lavendar sprigs in it..could be easy on the $$ too.

    It is fun to see all of your ideas.

  2. great ideas! i love, love the envelopes! and the little strip of burlap around the jar is wonderful, so easy and makes such a difference

  3. Love, love, love the little lavender pots!

  4. Great ideas and projects! You could also use origami papers for the envelopes.
    Love the pinwheel and burlap!

  5. I LOVE the woven burlap for a runner... or any other large swatches of material, like table-settings, or the aisle to walk down!!

    The sound of putting groupings of pinwheels together as bouquets is soooo amazing!!
