Wedding Wednesday: DIY Details

I've already posted about the Card Box and Hot Chocolate Vial favours, but there were many other projects Cam and I opted to give our personal touch. From the stationary to the ceremony to the reception, we made our mark.

Our invitations were created using pre-cut cardstock and envelopes from Cards & Pockets, ribbon from Mokuba, Martha Stewart's snowflake punch and double sided tape.

Cam's Mom was kind enough to lend her time, here we are gluing, taping and assembling:


The final product:

With the extra cardstock, we made wish tree tags which also served as our guestbook:


For the ceremony, we created a simple program that was small enough to fit in a suit pocket:


One of the least expensive and easiest of the DIY projects was this Unity Candle, customized with our monogram and coordinated with the left over Cardbox ribbon:


Name cards at each place setting were punched and hand written using the same stationary and font as the wedding invites:


Finally I made Thank You cards for my wedding party (adding a shape close to their dress style and colour) which they opened the morning of the wedding:



These projects were a lot of work and could have easily been purchased, but I enjoy being crafty. Spread over a few months, I found doing these projects were fun and well worth it.
