I'm so Thankful for my Crafty Friends: Wedding Planning Updates

I tend to have wonderful (in my opinion, at least) craft project ideas. However, the domestic/craft fairy skipped me when she was doling out talent. Thankfully, I've been blesses with the sweetest of friends who happen to have heaps of crafty ability. They've come in very handy in the wedding planning process.  Want examples?

A few of my friends and I got ALL of my invitations assembled, tied, addressed, sealed and ready to be stamped and sent out.

Envelope Front: 2 State Flag Stamps
Envelope Back: Sealed with a foreign stamp

Lyric made my flower girl baskets. I bought Easter baskets on clearance at Ross, pulled off the eggs and let Lyric have at them! (Pictures not on my camera....coming soon)

Lyric also decorated my mailbox, which will hold my postcards after the guests have filled them out. The papermache mailbox came from Hobby Lobby for like $2 and she painted it and covered it in $1 scrapbook paper.

The finished product. It looks 80X better in person. I think its absolutely gorgeous and have to find a use for it in our home.

I thought maybe this pic would let you see the scrapbook paper better.

Hotglue and I sewed my ring bearer pillows. The fabric came from the wrap that came with my 9th grade pageant dress.

Hotglue had never sewn before!

I hadn't sewn in years.

I think she did a pretty good job!

We're going to tie the extra invitation ribbon around them.

AND I found some awesome shoes that complement my dress perfectly! I found them at David's Bridal and they've got lace on them, which is perfect for my all lace dress.

Cute huh?


  1. Aww.. you make me want to get married again so I can craft up my wedding!! Great job, ladies! inexpensive and priceless memories!!

  2. Everything is coming along so well! I'm sure the time is flying by.

  3. the mailbox looks awesome! I have absolutely no sewing skills either. :)

  4. I love love the mailbox!! That is perfect. And those pillows look great and the ribbon will give them the extra snazz and yay for shoes!!

  5. Wow you do have very talented friends! Nice crafts and photos. Congrats on making progress with your wedding and giving it a personal, homemade touch..... those are the best!

    Perhaps your crafty friends can help you come up with an awesome guest post for my site in a week or so..... Hint, hint! :-)

  6. Thanks ladies! We had a great time making them. I wish I had more time for craft projects.

  7. Great projects! I love your shoes-pretty. I think an all lace dress will be gorgeous. :)
