    Hi Everyone! My wedding is coming up FAST and my fiance and I have started some DIY projects for the big day. We are proud of them so I wanted to share with everyone for ideas and inspiration!  You will see our monogram a lot which will be everywhere at the wedding - including projected onto the dance floor :) :)

     

    Dinner menus (this isn't the final version/wording but you get the idea)

    Matches for our cigar bar - we met on match.com so we incorporated their logo.

    We are using kraft paper everywhere in our wedding, so we decided to go with kraft paper welcome bags. We really wanted to give out cloth totes, but I think these turned out great and they were a much more economical option. We designed a custom rubber stamp and I hand stamped both sides of 50+ bags.

    Since the stamp was an investment (around $50) we wanted to find another use for it. We found online really cheap but sturdy paper coasters and we hand stamped about 150 of these. I can't wait to use them for our welcome cocktail party!!

    Here's a close up... I love the fact that every one will be a little different from variations in the ink. They're not perfect but I think the imperfection adds to the "rustic" feel of the wedding.

    Cute paper straws! I have to give all the credit to my fiance for these, he did this whole project start to finish - design to execution - on his own (300 straws!)....

    "Too much sun, too much fun" kit for our welcome bags

    Hope you enjoy! Let me know if you have questions or are looking for sources - we got everything online for very reasonable prices :)

            Thanks! We are going to set up the cigar bar away from our indoor reception space on the beach bar at Le Reve. We are just going to lay out the cigars we ordered on the bar along with all of the supplies - matches/lighters, cutter (not sure if that's the right word?) etc.  We aren't having a cigar roller - ours is pretty low key. We are also making a cute framed sign which details what kinds of cigars you can choose from - as soon as it's done I'll post a picture!

              I was just wondering where you found the paper coasters?

                We bought the coasters on eBay from a seller named drivingbo¬≠ardgamer. They have a bunch of different quantities available at great prices!

                      Up close of one of the frames. It's hard to see in the picture but there is a transparent background design on the picture.
