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.


What to do, What to do?

23 May

I am working towards a tentative wedding date of May 15th 2013. As a bride on less than a shoestring budget, well I decided to do everything (almost everything) myself. So over the next year I will be searching the web for inspiration, projects, and inexpensive ways to have the day I always wanted without going into debt.
Wish me luck. I think I am going to need it.
