Wedding Wednesday: Reception Details

Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today I wanted to share some of my favorite parts of our wedding...the reception details. Our ceremony and reception decorations were all Pinterest inspired DIY projects. It was definitely a labor of love. The last few months of wedding planning, if I wasn't at work, I was at home covered in paint and/or glue. I joked with Rick the reason why brides get their nails done before the wedding is because their nails are a wreck from wedding DIYs. At least mine were!

The theme of my wedding was Southern Garden Party and the color scheme was hot pink and turquoise. There was also a lot of burlap, twine, mason jars and chalkboards. Just a few of my favorite things. So here are the details, and if anyone has any questions on how I made something just shoot me an email or leave a comment below. I might share a few DIY/tutorials in the future on how I made things.

  1. Love these sweet touches! We did something very similar for our photo booth. I especially like the phrase on you seating tags - lets everyone know that its time for a party!

  2. Everything is so pretty!!! <3

  3. We almost did the exact same thing for our escort cards! That was one of our ideas, but we thought that since it was outside, the wind might be a we changed it to a magnetic board instead. I have a detailed post coming up as well...eventually.

  4. What great details! I love the sign with the escort cards and every layer of that cake sounds amazing!

  5. I love everything you did at your wedding!! Everything looks picture perfect! Congrats!

  6. Everything looks so perfect! Did you have fun DIYing everything? Halfway through planning I realized I bit off more than I can chew and started etsying a lot of stuff.
