Now this a bold bride with an artistic eye! We love Bridget’s graphic colorful designs and thought they’d make perfect eye candy for a Monday morning. “The overall theme was Mackenzie-Child’s Courtly Check pattern with Lilly Pulitzer’s Exotic Garden print.” Bridget began. “I chose a short dress which highlighted my Kate Spade glitter heels (+…
I don’t know about you, but I’m a serious list maker! There’s something so therapeutic to me about getting everything I need to do out of my head and onto a list, it helps me feel more organised and I know there’s no way i’m going to forget anything because i’ve got it all written down in front of me! That being said, the same applies to weddings. The lead up to a wedding can be quite a stressful, manic time, worrying if you’ve remembered everything and trying to get everything organised in time, we feel you! So to help we’ve created this handy last minute wedding checklist!
Of course not everything will apply to everyone, you may be having a minimal wedding with less things to remember or perhaps you’ve actually got more things you need to add to the list, well do not worry, we’ve left spaces for you add in your own options if you need to!
This month we teamed up with B&Q on their #mystatementwall campaign where we got to share our favourite colourful and statement walls over on our instagram and we also got to create a canvas of what we envisioned a statement wall of our own would look like! I chose to use blues, oranges, pinks, purples and yellow to create this geometric piece and loved the results! Afterwards I was thinking, what can | do with this canvas now? And it hit me that it would make an awesome seating plan! Here’s how to create your own geometric table plan…
YOU WILL NEED:
A white canvas // Paints in the colours of your choice // Paintbrushes // Frog tape // Faux flowers (or real flowers if you prefer) // A glue gun // Black vinyl // White vinyl // Cricut Machine* // Place names (These can be from your stationer, printed out at home or handwritten if you’ve got lovely hand writing) // Craft glue //
*You don’t necessarily NEED a Cricut with black and white vinyl for this project, you can always get some vinyl letters or stickers if you prefer to create the words ‘seating plan’ at the top
Who doesn’t love a good wedding reception?! Everyone gets a chance to let loose and celebrate, be it by gorging on the yummy wedding cake or busting out some moves on the dance floor. And don’t even get me started on the photo booth…it’s no secret that we love a good backdrop and we love a good bunch of photo booth props! But we all know that photo backdrops can sometimes get expensive. Luckily, they’re super easy to DIY! Using this tutorial from Gifts.com, you can easily make a fun backdrop using finged tissue paper, you just simply match it to your wedding’s colour palette!
YOU WILL NEED:
Tissue Paper // Scissors // Tape // Plastic table cloth // Ruler (optional) // Pen (optional) //

Once you’ve chosen your colours, cut out triangles from your tissue paper. Cut through multiple layers at a time to make this process faster. You can use a ruler to measure out your triangles, or create triangles in varying sizes.
Make vertical cuts in the triangles, stopping about one inch from the top. This will add texture to your backdrop
