Our Wedding

The Idea to start our own wedding shop/blog came from our own wedding, because we were very budget conscious, we decided that we would hand make most if not all of our decorations, it was very time consuming and took lots of effort, but we loved the results and it made our wedding that much more special for us.

 These were the chair backs that we used on our chairs, we made them just by taking random lengths of cut fabric and tying them around a small rope, this was probably the most time consuming of all the things we did. But we loved the way they turned out

 This is the birdcage veil that Lauren wore at the wedding, you can find a lot of tutorials online for how to make these, they are relatively easy to make and we accented ours with some small fabric flowers.

Our cake-stand was a challenge, we found these round pieces of tree wood at Michaels and built the three tiers out of them, the challenge was in balancing all three and nailing them together.

Lauren got so crafty with making our cake toppers, we found these small ceramic birds and she handmade the hat and tie out of felt, then she made the little string of pearls and birdcage veil. This was one of our favorite things we made for the wedding.

This was our candy table,  We handmade the burlap ribbon and painted the sign with stencils, then we found a bunch of candy jars, (T.J Maxx and Ross are great for these!!) and filled everything up with candy and sweets, our guests loved these!

This Is Lauren's Bouquet and her bridesmaids bouquets, lots of time and work went into these, and we absolutely love the way they turned out. We hand rolled and made each flower on the bouquet, and we used individual flower stems to hot glue each flower to and then we put them all together, These are the main item that we sell now in the etsy shop, They are great because they look beautiful and they are something that will last forever, ours now sits in a vase on display in our living room.

That is just the beginning of all the things we handmade at our wedding, if you are interested in seeing everything else we have made or what we have for sale for your wedding click here HERE to be transferred to our ETSY page. thank you so much for reading!!
