I thought I would show you some of the DIY my parents and I did, to make mine and Matthew's wedding day as beautiful as it was.
The beautiful dress me and my mother designed. Which my Mom then made.
The little pocket my mother sewed into my dress to contain both of my Grandfathers things. A handkerchief, and a couple tiny little tools (Grandpa S. was a woodworker)
The bouquet's, boutonniere's, and corsages (as well as there bands) were all made by me, out of silk roses. I didn't want any real flowers at our wedding. This also allowed me to use some white roses from my Grandmothers funeral as well.
These are the stunning centerpieces my father spent months making. Can you believe they are all hand cut, hand painted, and put together from COFFEE FILTERS. They also were used in place of pew bows (gosh I despise those pew bows everyone uses BLAHHH)
Our wonderful wedding party.
A beautiful symbol of the generations. Matt is wearing his Papa's ring and the broach I am wearign is actually two made into one. One is my Nana's and the middle is my Grandma S's.
Our beautiful memorial table for our Grandparents.
A close up of the center of the memorial table.
I will be doing a tutorial really soon for my YOUTUBE Channel. On the weave I used for the corsage bands. So keep an eye out for that.
