Handmade Bonding

Planning a wedding can be a very stressful time, with lots of decision-making and organizing. During my own wedding, I try to find things we can do ourselves - not only to cut costs, but it seems more personal when I get to really be a part of the process. I have found the process to be fun and a bonding time for my fiance and me as well as my family members and good friends that I've recruited to help out!

Above is a picture of me printing out all our wedding invitations - we later had to assemble all the pieces and wrap with ribbon.

Here is a picture of my fiance Evan working so diligently on our wedding favors gift tins.

Here are my friends helping to assemble our wedding programs that double as fans! ;)

These butterflies will soon become place cards at the reception - and will rest on the wine glasses!

Hopefully next month, I'll be able to share some more photos of the final products displayed during the big day! :)
