While looking at the site this month I have seen all the great DIY wedding things and can’t stop thinking about my own wedding, where practically everything was made by us and various family members. My favorite elements were the centerpieces. I love their graphic quality and the paper flowers. I think they looked wonderful and were a great deal cheaper than real ones. They were a collaboration between myself, my mom, my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law. I love the element of art and craft that went into my wedding but also the fact that my entire family was involved in creating things for it.
