DIY Wedding Decor

DIY weddings require a lot of work, both in planning out and creating so many decor elements, and executing the day of, but it's so worth every glue gun burn! I loved being able to hand craft every detail of our big day to ensure it embodied who we are as individuals and as a couple. Here's a sampling! 

I had several really beautiful paper banners made by one of my bridesmaids!
This one, featuring our wedding date, hung on the front of our entry table.
Menu painted on vintage framed window. Table assignments clipped to a large bird cage themed wall hang.
Center pieces: wood slice, white wine bottle sans label, hand made chalkboard and twine necker. Wedding arrow painted on vintage framed window. Autographed wood slice instead of traditional guest book. Sweetheart table decorated with bird cages, an "I Do, Me Too" paper banner, and our initials. 
Tables decorated with burlap runners. Mason jar glasses with paper straws.
DIY burlap pillows with "Mr" and "Mrs" painted in white.
These were placed on a Victorian couch in the cigar and port lounge. 
Vintage wooden frame turned into a wine cork board with burlap and lace runner and flower.
Handmade ring pillow for bride's ring. 
Wood box painted white with silk flower attached to the top for groom's ring. 
Wine charm favors doubling as place markers at table settings
Hand painted wooden cake toppers
Beanbag toss hand made by my dad for the lawn games featured at our cocktail hour.
