DIY wedding? Free wedding printables!

Save some money and make your own paper suite (invitations, response cards, place cards, table numbers/names, favor tags, etc). If you lack the time and creativity here are some FREE wedding printables I found on Intimate Weddings website. (There are other printables available there as well.)

I love these creative place cards found on Martha Stewart Weddings website. (Click the pictures below to go to the site and download the free printables.)

Patterned placecards

Butterfly placecards

This oozes creativity…LOVE IT!


What’s In a Name?

Some guests are too shy to share their life stories. Help them bypass the small talk and go straight for the good stuff with introductory cards that reveal shared interests or personal triumphs.

Play It
When a guest slides out her place card (calligraph her name under our design), she’ll see an arrow pointing to the left with the name of the person seated there, plus an interesting tidbit (e.g., “Joel was a Connecticut tap-dancing finalist!”). A second arrow shares info on the person seated to her right.


Here are some lovely favor wraps you can DIY, courtesy of Martha Stewart:

Beautiful paper Dahlia favor wrap

The beginning of Etsy Thursday..check out these wedding finds!

While its fun to DIY, sometimes it just makes more sense to buy it from someone that is already DIT (doing-it-themself). This post will include some wedding decor etsy finds that I fancied and wanted to share. These are projects where due to time constraints and reasonable purchase price may be easier to buy instead of DIY. All of the items below in my opinion are reasonably priced and creatively beautiful! Check them out and going forward every Thursday I will share my etsy finds with you~let’s call it Etsy Thursdays. Let me know what you think and if there are certain items or category of items that you would like me to research and share, please send me a note!
