I didn’t want to spend lots of money on flowers as I said in the wedding decorations post. Since I was going to be in Manhattan were there are fresh flowers and vendors all over I figured I could find something the morning of my wedding. I have always loved sunflowers so I was very happy when I found these great large yellow sunflowers.
I took ribbon left over from the invites and some floral wire and made myself a quick bouquet in the hotel room.
Next up is wedding decorations.
I made this banner with our names on it for the fireplace which we got married in front of. I ordered the fabric from Spoonflower. I was very happy with the quality and the price was reasonable too. I cut out the pieces and sewed them to a ribbon. It was quick and easy since I already had all the artwork done from the invitations.
We only had small tables and I didn’t want any center pieces because there really wasn’t room for them. I don’t really like flowers and I was trying to keep everything affordable so they really weren’t in the budget anyway. Since we love to travel I thought the perfect thing for us was to use all our travel photos somehow. I made these photo triangles with photos from all our trips. You can check out all our travels here. There were about 10 of them and they were all different. These were on some of the tables and along the bar along with blue glass tea lights. Since I spent so much time going through photos to find the best ones I also turned all them in to a small photo book after the wedding for us to keep. I had a free photo book coupon from Shutterfly so it turned out perfect and was a great recap of all our trips before we go married.
My mom made me a card box that matched my invitations perfectly! She told me she was making it but what it looked like was a surprise until the day before the wedding. And it turned out awesome!
And the Thank You cards I made after we got our photos back. We choose our favorite photo for the front and another smaller one on the inside.
I ordered them from Vistaprint. I got the matte finish notecards and they were nice quality.
Tomorrow will be party favors.
