Official Theme Decision: Vintage Buttons

20 Aug

I’ve been reading a lot of the so-called indie wedding blogs, all of which put major emphasis on remaining “you” during your wedding planning. I take this to heart.

As such, my official theme decision – vintage buttons. I love buttons. I love vintage. I love crafty designs, and I’ve already incorporated my mom’s, grandmother’s and great-grandmother’s buttons into my bouquet. I’m going to design my own wedding stationary set with the button theme too. I haven’t figured out how to carry the idea all the way through yet, but I’m committed.

Also, I found a picture of a cake that I must imitate in some way:

Here’s another take on the button cake:

Flower Project #1 – Status: Complete

18 Jul

Well, about 10-12 hours of work later, my weekend bridal flower attempt is complete. I think it looks adorable. In total, the materials on this one piece cost around $18-20 (I’ll figure out the final cost later). The handle is a wooden knitting needle (oddly, the most expensive single item in the whole arrangement), and it is removable. I’ll customize it later.

I probably need to pin a little more just to tuck free corners, but I’m really excited about the results! At this rate, I’ll definitely be under budget on flower stuff. 😀
