DIY Wedding

A few months ago, I had the honor of styling the wedding of a sweet friend. 282-6146487 Now, I know this is a party blog and we don’t usually talk weddings around here, but for this, I’m making an exception…

1.  Because this wedding was positively gorgeous, and

2.  Because it was loaded with DIY projects that you can use for just about any celebration! In this post I’ll share a peek of the projects that we created, then I’ll follow it up with some DIY posts so you can recreate the projects for your own celebrations. The wedding was held at Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Virginia, and it couldn’t have been more beautiful. All of the azaleas were bursting with color, and the plants were fresh and green.

We didn’t need to worry much about ceremony decor, since Mother Nature did such a good job with that, but we did make custom wedding fans and bubble labels.

The wedding cocktail hour and wedding reception that followed were completely DIY.

Here’s what we made:
