wedding: 30 before April 30 - 7 years later

Monday, April 30, 2018

Today is our seventh wedding anniversary and it has me thinking about the day we gathered all of our friends and family for one big event that would celebrate us. I sat down this weekend to look through some of our planning and thought about the couples that are now going through the same thing -- creating a memorable day that is personalized for the fun couple you are and will always be!

Today, on the seventh anniversary of our wedding day, I'm sharing with you the top 4 "30 before April 30" DIY wedding projects from 2011!

1: Bridal Shower Seed Packet Favors: for my small bridal shower of 120 people (no joke), I needed something fun and inexpensive. I'm sure I was inspired by this project somewhere and used a The Wedding Chicks template to personalize.

2: Personalized Guest Board: find a unique way to get your guests to sign something you'll love for years to come! This post includes a reader that was inspired by our wedding guest surfboard, and our friends A+R used a snowboard (along with our moss C, birdcage and burlap 'just married' bunting) for their guests to sign! What's your idea?

3: Easy DIY Button Pillows: I may have gotten lazy here. We were going to purchase LL Bean Adirondack chairs for ourselves and thought it would be fun to add at our reception. Clearly, I needed personalized pillows and LOVED a pillow I had seen at a local store made with buttons. I started sewing 1 ... 2 ... 3 buttons until I realized I had wasted a huge amount of time and was no where near finishing. Find out how I turned this project into a completion!


4: Personalized Escort Cards: with a small wedding of 500 people (this is not a comedy blog), we didn't have assign seating. But for our wedding party, I wanted to create something special. For each bridesmaid and groomsman, I added an escort card with a picture of us to really make it special.


Are you getting ready for a personalized wedding? What fun things are you creating?
