More Of Get Accessorized It Up Week!

Hello again everyone!

Today we are going to talk about your flowers, people can spend hundreds of dollars on the flowers for there wedding. They look so beautiful, however then they turn bad the next day and they don’t look so good.

I want to be able to keep my flowers and have them forever. You can do artificial flowers but if people don’t want to do that then I am going to give you opition to save your real flowers. This could be used to save your fake flowers too but those wouldn’t go bad that fast.

The first option is to put your flowers into these ornaments and or glass balls. These make a great decoration piece that you can put into your home. This will remind you of your wedding day in your everyday life.

These are more of a decoration that is personalized but not too personalized. People could have these in their home and guest wouldn’t know that it is flowers from your wedding.

This second option is a shadow box that is more personalized to you and your wedding day. I like this shadow box idea because you can keep your flowers and much more in this display box. To have a picture of the bride and groom, an initial block, the invitation and a few other things that were important for that big day of yours. This will remind you in your home everyday of that best day of your life. Your guest will also be reminded of this special day when they see this.

I hope you enjoyed reading, if you have any questions or ideas please comment!

Thank you and have a great weekend.

Get Accessorized It Up Week!

I am in love with all of the things that you can buy to personalize your wedding. Therefore, this week is going to be all about how to pampered yourself for the big day and have items that you will use after the wedding as well.

First of all, who loves coffee or tea?! I know I love coffee and these coffee mugs you can use before and after the wedding. It is a coffee mug and how gets rid of coffee mugs? They are just so convenient on those lazy Sundays and Horrible Monday’s that you need coffee. However, items like this can remember you of some special memories.

If you really want to make these coffee mugs your own, you can make them yourself. This would allow you to pick of what type you wanted, what format, colors and you could personalize it a lot more then you would be able to with just a store bought one. I have not tried this yet but I have gotten gifts that people have made mugs for me and they are pretty cool.

You can wear your shoes any day you want after the wedding, if you do this tip. I would suggest getting flats for your day because then you are not only going to be really comfortable on that day but you can also wear them on your honeymoon and after during your everyday left.

Stay tuned for a few more items at the end of the week.

Mix Up Week Continued!

In this post I will be talking about fun accessory called t-shirts. I will be talking about how you can make these for you and your brides mates for your big day and even use these t-shirts later.

I know I am super excited to be able to wear “bride to be” and “wifey” t-shirts and to buy some for my brides mates. However, I have been looking for some to buy and it is just so expensive! This is money that I just don’t have with paying for the wedding. These are some of the t-shirts that I was interested in.

Below is a way that I found to make your own t-shirts and a big way to save money. I am going to be trying to make these over my spring break in two weeks. I will share with you the results but for now I am going to tell you what you will need and how to make these in your own home.

Things you need:

  • V-neck t-shirt
  • Printer
  • Exacto Knife
  • Fabric Paint (choose a color)
  • A dabber paint brush
  • Piece of card board

Now that you have these supplies, you can start to make these do it yourself t-shirts. Print out a word like “Mrs.”, “Bride to be”, “Wifey” or “Maid of honor” is some examples.

  1. Make the font size as big as you want it on your t-shirt.
  2. Once you print this, take the exacto knife and cut of the letters, keeping the negative space untouched like it shows above.
  3. Put the cardboard inside of the shirt so you don’t have the paint bleed through to the other side.
  4. Now put the paper onto of the t-shirt where you want to have the letters appear.
  5. Take the dabber brush with your selected paint on it and dab in the cut out space for the letters.
  6. Let it dry for at least 24-48 hors.

Now you have saved money but have cute t-shirts for you and wedding party!

Thanks for mixing it up with me this week. Please comment on your thoughts with this little change in my blog!

Mix Up Week!

This week I am going to still talk about wedding related topics but this time is going to be about all the fun accessories. I will be talking about how you can make for your big day and even use these accessories later.

Once you get engaged, you want to ask people to be in your bridal party to help your plan and celebrate your big day! You need to pick the people that you want to have these rolls. Once you have done that now it is time to make some “will you be my brides mate?” gifts. You could buy them online but these can get very expensive. To make your own could save your do it yourself bride budget.

Below is a set that you could by online that someone else has made. To be these are very inspiring to make your own gifts but too expensive and not personal enough to give to someone that is so important.

Now you can make a way more personalized and meaningful gift box by yourself. Below is an example of this.

This was a wooden box that was painted the wedding color. Now at first the person you are asking will probably not know that it is. Make this box as personal as you can, in the example they have the top inside part of the box set up as a collage of pictures that are of the bride to be and of the future bridal party member. This could also be a spot for a personalized note. The rest of the items can be what they like, this don’t have to be big-ticketed items either. A collection of $10-$15 things will easily do it.

Thanks for staying tuned for this next up week!

Keep connected for a diy t-shirt post later this week.
