I had the pleasure working with Jennifer Case on her wedding in October. Many times my clients share that they are making their own centerpieces, arranging their own favors, and printing menu cards themselves as an effort to save money. Jennifer’s ideas and finished product were grander than the average DIY Bride, and I name her my Ultimate DIY Bride of the year!
Monograms are a great item for DIY brides to work with, and to incorporate patterns along with them adds extra creativity and style. Escort cards were printed with an individual scroll, then calligraphed on white card stock. These cards were then posted on a board of fabric matching the scroll pattern. Runners were sewn in the scroll fabric, for each guest table. Decorative trees were even wrapped with corresponding fabric. Menu cards were prepared with the pattern and monogram. Table names were created around different places the bride and groom had visited. Donation cards at each placesetting were produced to tie to a lemon candy. The floral centerpieces were designed and arranged by the bride as well, which incorporated yellow roses and orchids.
So to all of the DIY Brides in Orlando, I task you to ultimate creativity, to make your Wedding Celebration a snapshot of your style just as this one!
