I have an affinity for paper flowers. They make nice wedding favor decorations, centerpieces, and it will become something that you can display in your home after the wedding.

I have been to way to many weddings where the day after things just get dumped into the trash. Oh, how wonderful would this be as a headboard or even as a wall hanging.

One reason for DIY’ing my wedding is that many of the decorations will be reused in my home decor instead of sitting in a box gathering dust in the attic.

I hope you find some inspiration in this and wishing you all the best. Goodnight.

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)
BY E. E. CUMMINGS

I carry your heart with me(I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling) I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true) and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.

Here is the deepest secret nobody knows (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

One of the poems I am considering for my vows. A little long but expresses how I feel so well. So it is a toss-up between this one and one by John Rossmini. I will post that one tomorrow.

I also plan to make some typographical art to hang from the trees at the ceremony location. Maybe this quote and a couple of others on rice paper in random old frames.

Tell me what you think? I’d love to hear from you.

Carnival Wedding??

A beautiful backyard wedding as seen in Real Simple Weddings and Green Wedding Shoes

Just saw this post on Green Wedding Shoes. Backyard weddings are back. A wonderful idea I do believe. You can see the full post on Green Wedding Shoes. Definitely going the with the strung light at my reception. I think I have finally decided on the theme. “Rustic Vintage Chic” not sure if that’s a real thing or just a hodge-podge of different design elements but I think I can pull it off.

With a Vintage Theme I am on the hunt for vintage furniture. My Grandmother has some great pieces I know she will let me use. Now off to the Thrift stores for some more inspiration. What  do you think about “Rustic Vintage Chic” ? Let me know in the comments after all with making most of the decor myself I don’t want to end up with a tacky display.
