I am in love with today’s DIY. What a great way to ask your best friends to be a part of your special day! Don’t just blurt it out… “Will you be my bridesmaid!!??”
If you’ve ever wondered what the word romance really looks like…look no further. This wedding, in all its vintage-elegant-crazy beautiful glory is all romance. So stunning that it almost makes me blush, with photographs by Studio Castillero that are like a perfect little window into a blissfully beautiful day.
The magic continues… But first did you see Part 1 ? If not, you really should ~ how often do you see couples married on a tiny island surrounded by a Fairytale moat? Part 2 of Lisa and Alex’s wedding is brimming with pretty pastel hues, pom poms galore, a cheese cake (not that kind of cheesecake but an assortment of cheeses, topped off with a heart shaped cheese topper on a rustic bed of wood and fruit!)

The cost of feeding guests adds up quickly. Gourmet-loving couples can easily blow 50% of their reception budget, or a little more than a quarter of their total wedding expenses, on food and alcohol. That’s roughly $5,000 to $7,000 based on an average wedding budget of $20,000.
Talk about making a statement from floor to ceiling… While a ceiling may not be the first thing in your wedding décor list, it presents a unique blank canvas for you to transform. Like the rest of your venue it can be customized to suit your wedding. Hanging decorations can add light or simply be that perfect addition to create the ambiance you are hoping for.
I feel like I’m a little late in joining the rustic chic party but hey better late than never right? In celebration of my latest project in the works which I shared a bit with you here , I thought I’d give these twine-wrapped mason jars a try. After all I certainly love wrapping and gluing anything I can around vases. This project was so easy peasy that you too can create your own with whatever kind of jar, twine and ribbon you want to use. The supplies are few as all you need is some glue (either crazy glue or you can use a glue gun), ribbon, mason jars, flowers and of course, lots and lots of the good stuff. Also known as twine.
Ok, mason lovers!
