Sara + Joey - Real Wedding Feature -
This gallery is phenomenal – all the adorable details, and DIY touches. I want to get married again and do it just like this!
Paper + Button Bouquet by The Little Red Button
DIY Bride was hit by hackers sometime over the weekend and it looks like the site had been compromised for a while and we didn’t know it until it was brought down. Don’t fret: no user information was accessed.
We’re super-busy with the cleaning and restoration of the site right as I type this. It looks like we’ll be up Tuesday night or Wednesday morning should everything go as planned.
In the meantime, we’re playing around with new logo ideas.
Idea #1. Whattya think?
For you rustic-vintage lovers, may this burlap and bling bouquet from Rachel and Brandon’s wedding inspire you! We love how the heavy twine wrapped around the stems mixes with the beautiful rhinestones in the bouquet. Photography: Rachel Leigh Photography
We love incorporating favors into tablescapes and place settings. Katherine and Christopher presented their guests with burlap bags full of their favorite coffee beans. (Did you notice the place card? It’s a slice of tree branch. Lovely!) Photography: Gavin Wade Photographers
Popcorn lovers, unite! Using an unusual container, like this barrel, is a clever and practical way to display mounds of yummy popcorn. Check out Elizabeth and Stephen’s rustic-but-awesome wedding for more inspiration! Photography by gemmer photography
Oh, vintage lovers? Prepare yourself for major swoonage: teacup aisle markers from the wedding of Karla and Frankie. Photographer: Harmony Loves
Sometimes we receive short and sweet submissions from couples that showcase a project or specific element of their wedding. We like to call these “Inspired By” posts because, well, they do inspire us!
Today’s inspired shot of DIY ribbon wands comes from Pamela and Salvatore’s wedding.
"I hope you like our homemade wedding wands. My mom and I just took wooden dowels and some white satin ribbon and we created the perfect exit! The church wouldn’t allow bubbles, birdseed, confetti, or anything else so this was our only option. The kids loved it and guests were waving their wands for the whole reception."
Sometimes it’s the little details that have the most impact - like this wine cork heart from Christine and Tom’s wedding. It’s sweet, simple, and so pretty! Photographer: Graham Terhune Photography
Kelley + Chris rocked long tables at their reception. We love the simple table decor here; it fits well with the venue and allows for maximum interaction among their guests (no pesky candelabras or poufy arrangements to get in the line of site and conversation).
