I have been seeing signs similar to this on Etsy selling for outrageous amounts of money. I guess if you aren't into DIY or don't have nice handwriting you can justify the price tag, but I love DIY and I have nice handwriting so I decided to make my own!
small piece of wood from Michael's
wood stain (I used a dark walnut color that I already had)
drill- to drill holes for the ribbon
paint pen or paint and paint brush (I used a combination of both bc my paint pen was running out)
Instructions: This was so simple. First I drilled holes where I wanted to thread the ribbon through. Then I stained the wood and let it dry over night. The next day I painted the saying "Daddy, here comes your bride." You could paint anything- if the groom is your ring bearer's uncle, for example "Uncle Dan, here comes your bride." You get the picture... Then I just thread the ribbon through and tied knots. Here is how it came out:
I have been letting my son play with it a little in hopes that he will be interested in actually carrying it down the aisle.
I like this alternative to having him actually "bear the rings" bc he will just be one month shy of 2 years old when we get married and I didn't want to chance that...
Happy planning ladies!
