DIY Wednesday: Receipt paper background

I love a good backdrop. This DIY Wednesday so easy and it has such a dramatic effect!
 Dont you love those? 
1. Take rolls of receipt paper( this couple chose a light pink color) tear, loop, and hang them at different heights. Attach to the ceiling of your venue with tape, fishing line, or ribbon.

*Another alternative, if you want it to be moveable, would be to attach the strips to a wooden frame with mesh stretched across it and then hang it with fishing line.*

DIY Wednesday: Bridesmaid Cards

This is a gorgeous DIY that my good friend Kaitlin did for her bridesmaids to invite them to be in her wedding. I especially love the "promise notes" she included vowing not turn into a Bridezilla! 

The cards incorporated their wed colors into the design..

she also had an inspiration card for each bridesmaid with their color info, location, date, and what to expect on the Big Day.

I love this written font! 

twine to keep it all together ( and its cheap too!)

i love the idea of writing the return addy on the back flap instead.

Well done!! You make me proud! :)

Cute Idea: Ticket Invite

Some good friends of mine recently got married in Antigua and sent out their invites as a vintage ticket. LOVE this cute idea! 

I especially love the tear half with the info on gifts and destination! I'd love to see this done as a train ticket for a twenties inspired wedding! Such a great idea if your planning a destination wed- incorporate your own details and inspiration!
