Remake 5 M&S Wedding Edition {Pinterest}

Wedding planning can be VERY stressful (I wish that it wasn't)!! Knowing this, I volunteered to be in charge of all the decorations for my brother and new sister-in-law's wedding. I really enjoy devising get togethers, events, planning, organizing, and being creative with what I have/having a limited budget. Here are a few of the ideas that I worked on that were displayed at the reception... Many of these were inspired from things found on Pinterest and specific choices made by the bride :) I am so thankful for all of the help I received during this time in implementing, setting up, and taking down the decor (you know who you are! THANK YOU!!)

I will be sharing two more in this same series at a later time!

1. Cake Table Backdrop*****
The cake table needed something to make it stand out and this was such a perfect idea!!! The pin for this project was none other provided by Anthropologie. I, however, had a different idea as how to it should be done. By dyeing the coffee filters in various shades of blue and green, stringing them on fishing line, and hanging them from a stand to sit behind the cake table. It made for an excellent photograph backdrop while cutting the cake!!

*Seriously, this is probably my favorite project to date!

2. Mason Jars****
The bride wanted to line the aisles with large mason jars. I filled them with Epsom salts so that they would stand out more with the LED candles (in case they were knocked over- wouldn't want to start a fire!) for a warm glow. Raffia tied around the jar together with silver cypress and juniper berries for natural greenery.

3. Advice Table***
The idea of having an advice table where people would write marriage tips ("keys to a happy marriage") on scraps of paper and then clip them to a clothesline. A cocktail table with the instructions, pens, and notecards were set beside the frame. I strung the frame with white tulle and navy ribbon and used twine for the actual clothesline. This frame was placed in the middle of the wine bar and bread & cheese station to allow people to have something to do while they waited on the arrival of the bridal party :)
*The frame was my parent's old window insert-HA!

4. Twine, Burlap, & Ribbon Wrapped Vases****
We wanted some of the jars around the reception (mostly for the main centerpieces) to tie into the natural elements of the lake house and match each other. We had around 20 vases total.
*These looked great on the tables- some had flowers while others had candles in them.

5. Ceremony Welcome Table****
Sandy's vintage seafoam typewriter was a starting point for the table. I added some mason jars, candles, burlap, and wood pieces for height. The guestbook was on this table as well as a basket with the programs.
*It was a funky, vintage mix :)
