All The Floral

October 23rd, 2009

Flowers weren’t the main focus of our décor. It was actually lighting, but the flowers did bring a little something extra.

We incorporated a lot of DIY (do-it-yourself) into the big day. I LOVE to make and create "things". I love art, design, and owning these projects. These were a nice distraction from work where I can’t create "pretty" things. I did most of it myself and sometimes enlisted the bridesmaids in sweatshop-like conditions. (Some templates are also available for download. Look around.)

If you think I slaved day and night over the projects, then you’ll stand corrected. DIY shouldn’t be so difficult that you’ll give up. I just worked on everything for a couple of hours every couple of nights. It ramped up as the wedding got closer, but it was nice that we had such a long engagement. This website is also a DIY – I used to design websites way back before college and picked it back up to help our guests get more information. Then it just kinda grew after I received emails from other brides asking for help!

The Knot Real Weddings

October 12th, 2009

Well, our third and probably last feature on The Knot is up! About a week ago, I was contacted by another sweet member from The Knot. She wanted to feature us in their "Real Weddings". Here is a link to the first story and the second live interview.

It is basically a story they print about a couple with their favorite shots (The Knot’s favorite). Had I submitted the photos, I would have probably chosen different ones.

The honor though, was the act that I did not have to submit anything. They approached us about it and I thought that was pretty cool. It’s definitely nice to know that the effort we put into throwing a great party for our guests went beyond that night and beyond the people in attendence!

I still love receiving emails from other brides about using my ideas as inspiration for their own projects, so keep it up and let me know if you have too.

Here is the whole story about the feature.
