Here's a charming wedding we did last year in North Carolina. The bride, herself an event planner, had a rustic woodland vision that we had a ball executing. Check out our awesome paper crafts like the pinwheels, tissue paper flowers, and place cards with coordinating art.
The ceremony featured simple decor like these easy paper cones, filled with baby's breath and tied to the pews with twine, and a row of handmade pinwheels, made from craft-store paper.
Upon entering the reception, guests found their last name on escort cards featuring whimsical pinwheels and flag bunting motifs.
The buffet dinner was labeled as well with table cards featuring the same paper patterns used through out the event. Want to know my secret? I took photos of the paper and used the jpgs images in InDesign. Printed out quite nicely.
For the tables, we stacked up a few vintage books–found at thrift stores and yard sales–along with sweet little wood placards of favorite Bible quotes. Next to that was a blue mason jar of fresh flowers and the table number. The table numbers were craft store numbers with decorative papers glued to the top with Mod Podge. Cause who doesn't love that gloriously sticky stuff?!
Tied to the chairs were with twine were hand-made tissue paper flowers (easiest thing ever!)
The evening ended with a candy bar. Guests were given sweet little burlap bags, hand-stamped with the new couple's monogram, to fill to their heart's delight with M&Ms, Skittles, Gummy Bbears and more. This was one of the most popular spots of the evening!
But this might have been my favorite part- a gorgeously simple wedding cake decorated by my friend. I wish you could have tasted it. There were also cupcakes galore in six different flavors, but I was too busy eating them to take a picture.
