I figured I should just start a thread with my goodies, since I'll be going along and wanted to share in case anyone else gets some ideas from my stuff, I figured I post it as I go along. They'll be lots more to come, as I'm not getting married until January, but here's what we have so far:
My Birdesmaid invitation boxes Just something I pulled together with a little creativity at the local dollarstore. I really wanted a different and super special way of inviting my girls!
My Save-the-Dates. I designed these up in Photoshop and then just had them printed on 4" x 6" photos, and attached them to magnets (I cut up self-adhesive biz card magnets from Staples and stuck them on the back).
My self-designed logo (again, Photoshop). We'll likely use this for some of the tags as well as the mugs I'm going to get screen printed.
My centerpieces *I think* I saw something really cool this weekend that may make it's way into these plans and flows a bit more of the vintage feel into it, which I'll of course add here if I do!! Again, dollar store cheapy vases and Orchids from Jysk (surprisingly good quality). Pardon the crappy cell phone pic . I think I'll have some scatter gems mixed with seashells around these.
My card box. I love this one! I cam across this treasure chest at Jysk for $15 and I just loved it, but I really want some more vintagey" feeling things at the wedding. So, I painted it up and antiqued it. A very messy but fun process.
My "vintage" table number photo frames! Again, a steal at the Dollarama, they are actually $1 plastic frames (which is perfect because they weigh NOTHING for travel). I spray-painted them (using a spray paint meant for plastic) and then used my same paint/glazing method as I did for the box. I'm not sure this is my final design for the numbers themselves, but that's what I've come up with so far, that co-ordinates with my other Photoshop designs so far.
That's it so far! I hope to have lots more to show you (lord knows I have a head full of ideas, whether they actually work or not, that's a different story!!)
