Don’t we just love weddings? And agree with me here, we love it more because of the many DIYs we can make!
Well last October 10, 2015, I was blessed enough to make a lot of things for my cousin-in-laws wedding — even more DIYs than my own wedding! It was challenging, there were a lot of lessons learned, I have had my regrets (and I promise to make it up next time, perhaps on their renewal of vows, or in their first child’s Christening or birthday…) but nevertheless it was as fun and fulfilling as I expected it to be! So once again, a shout of thanks to Tita Jam and Tito Enzo for entrusting these things to me! It was such a pleasure as much as it was an honor to me! God bless you both!
And so without further ado, let me give you a rundown of our handmade things for this beautiful wedding:
- Monogram – almost every wedding has one. But we decided to keep it simple and use simple fonts rather than handmade calligraphy.
2. Invitation Suite – I did several mock ups for the invitations but we decided on this format. 3-fold invitation with back-to-back prints. Everything is written within the invitation folds except for the mini-page where the Gift Registry tag was attached. I also did the Missalette cover although there was a minor miscommunication on the paper we will be using but hey, it turned out just fine! 🙂
3. Giveaways – we had 2 types. I made the wine bottle label for the giveaways for principal sponsors. Then I made the stickers and tag for the Kisses which were given to guests in general.
3. Flower Girl Gown – I love this! As in! I’ve always wanted those princess tutu types you find all over the net but I was afraid purchasing them internationally would cost us greatly so we decided to make our own. And I had several trials as well, before we arrived with the design we liked.
4. The Flowers – the flowers! This is one area where I had the most regret. 🙁 It was because I lacked time and resources that I failed to make the flowers according to our agreement. I had to improvise and these are what I came up with. It was such a good thing that the bride was very understanding and loved the flowers just the same. But really, I promise to make it up next time!
5. The Candy Bar – also one of my favorites though it was a simple setup of candies and sweets in shades of pink and choco. A special shoutout to my hubby for helping make this a reality for me!
6. The AVPs – and of course, the AVPs. I made their flashback AVP and Pre-nup AVP which was played during the reception. Too bad I can’t upload the videos here (yeah, I’m still on a Free plan).
It was really fun! I wish I could do this again! But better! I thank God for the talent and grace He has given me And I thank God for the especially kind and wonderful couple who partnered with me on this. Really, so so so much thanks guys!
