    DIY Table Runners:

     

    I saw these AMAZING table runners on Etsy but they were $20 a piece - yeah false! I decided I was going to finally learn how to sew and take a wack at making my own. So that's what I did - I purchased all of the material at Joann's with coupons and made my own runners! I love how they turned out. I am going to alternate the turquoise and coral chevron on each table.

     

     

    This is what I'm thinking for table settings. What do you all think?

     

     

    DIY Post Card Guest Book:

    I put these together last night. I put one post card in each glassine envelope I bought on Amazon and put an avery label I printed on it. I really like how they turned out, I'm going to have one per place setting so hopefully they will take the time to fill them out, or have the option of sending them back to us after the wedding ( I would prefer before we leave Jamaica though so they actually do it!).

    I love this! I think it looks so awesome! So creative!

        DIY Programs:

         

        I had a completely different, more traditional program nearly finished and then had to trash it because it just wasn't "us". We're far from traditional so we went with a more fun/informal program attached to the raffia fan. I'm also going to put a flower at the base of the fan just to add some more detail.

         

         

         

         

        My Cake Topper:

        This I absolutely cannot take credit for. Trina's Clay Creations on Etsy did an AMAZING JOB (COMPLETE UNDERSTATEMENT) on our cake topper! It was beyond worth EVERY PENNY! It came out better than I could have ever imagined. Trina was phenomenal and took time to email me every step of the way, and asked for more pictures when needed. We absolutely love it. Check out her Etsy store:

         

         

        DIY Bridal Bracelet:

        I just started messing around with some beads I had at my house and came up with a really cool bracelet, I think I'm going to attach a starfish brooch in the center and use it for my rehearsal dinner or maybe the wedding!

          I love your program! Its so fun! I have been debating whether or not I should do one... I had decided against it until I saw yours though. its super cute... did you make it yourself or did you have someone create it for you? And your cake topper is beautiful! She really did a wonderful job!

            Aw thank you for your kind words! I made it myself in Microsoft Publisher and then just printed it at home on some paper I found at Michael's! I think all together it cost me less than $5 to make them!
