DIY: Wednesday

Its that time again. Ill be featuring DIY weddings ideas, inspiration, projects and more every wednesday so stay tuned for more ways to make your wedding cute easy and more affordable. 
With spring in tow and warm weather hitting my city I thought id lighten up the DIY Wednesday with a spring inspired project. Brought to you by oncewed this project is simple and oh so adorable! Use it at your ceremony to drape the ceiling with color, over your dessert or food tables, in the trees, down the aisle, in a reception tent, or draped down doorways. 
Leave Martha's pre-packaged idea on the shelf this time and try this out, or at least get your bridal party to do it for you.

Fabric Flower Garland 

Supplies: Scissors, needle and thread, fabric, and a pencil.

Step 1: 
Fold your fabric and use the spool of thread to trace a circle. 
Then cut the circles out.
Step 2: 
Take one circle and fold it in half.
Step 3: 
Take the half circle and fold it in half again.
Step 4: 
Then take your circle and stitch through the bottom. 
Continue this step, adding at least 6 circles on top of the first.

Step 5: 
Once you have sewn all 6 circles, 
connect the petals together by stitching through each one
 at the corners and then tying off the tread with a double knot.
Step 6:
 Next, cut 3 yards of thread and add on the flowers one by one.

Now your done. Enjoy your handiwork! Get Creative!

Mr & Mrs

Veronique and Daniel. Luxembourg. Vintage inspired decor. 

They got ready at her parent's place. It was her granny's 90th birthday- how cute is she? I love the original vintage decor in her home!

Such a gorgeous bride! Her dress is vintage ( of course ). She made her bouquet from vintage brooches collected all over the world. The groom wears Hugo Boss. 

Such a great moment captured in the car ride over to ceremony spot! 

I love her bolero! Notice Daniels boutonnière- its a vintage flower brooch. 

Whats with the goat? An old Luxembourg wedding tradition: If an older sibling of the bride isn't yet married they are given a goat to carry around all night in place of a significant other. And you thought your date was bad..

Click the pics for a bigger version of the decor. Highlights: 
vintage pins on everyones place setting, tiny homemade jams by the bride and mother as a parting gift, candy and cookie bar, beautiful vintage frames, pictures, and knickknacks fill the reception space.

The grooms good friends played live music all night for them. What a gorgeous shot, huh?

A rainy day photoshoot made their wedding album complete.  

Congrats to the Mr & Mrs! A beautiful couple and a beautiful wedding! 

Check out their photographer here for more beautiful photos.

This week's DIY idea is brought to us by 100layercake. I love unique centerpiece ideas. Especially affordable, adorable ones like this paper flower! You dont have to worry about wilting or transporting and they add a lovely whimsical touch to any event! 


7 sheets of a single color for petals. Each sheet is a single petal. (We used Canson Colorline Art Papers 19″ x 25″ from the local art supply store.)

Yellow or mustard color for stamen (middle of the flower)

1 black for center
3 sheets of different greens (We used pastel quality greens because the colors are better)

Glue gun, pencil, scissors, 18″ ruler
