Posted by Sarah Zlotnick. Filed under Real Weddings

There’s something so warm and inviting about a Fall wedding, don’t you think? Today we’re smitten with Taylor and Richard’s October North Carolina nuptials, particularly because of the creative red centerpieces and the fact that the bride made her fascinator herself. Special thanks to Keepsake Memories Photography for sending over the photos! We think they capture the unique oceanside ceremony perfectly.

DIY Wednesday: May Day Seed Bombs
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself, Favors

Happy May Day!  If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box, eco-friendly wedding favor, you’ll be smitten with the idea of seed bombs. Seed bombs are an easy way to grow vegetation without having to till the land.  Bonus: they just so happen to be the perfect size to give to your wedding guests! These little cuties are also very simple to make and would be a great, get-your-hands-dirty project for you and your fiancé to tackle together.

Supplies: compost • water • wildflower seeds (native to your area) • clay (powdered-found at art supply stores) • fabric •  twine •  tag •  scissors • water • bowl or pail

Step One • To make seed bombs, you’ll be combining 1 part seeds, 3 parts compost and 5 parts clay. This step can be messy so you might want to do it outdoors. Begin by mixing the seeds and the compost. Once the seeds and compost are combined, add the clay. Next, slowly add water until the mixture is moist and holds the shape of a ball.

Step Two • Form 1 1/2 inch spheres out of the mixture.

Step Three • Allow the seed bombs to dry in the sun.

Step Four • Once they’re dry, gather fabric, twine, scissors and a tag to package them up.

Step Five • Place a seed bomb in the center of a fabric circle and secure with twine.

DIY Wednesday: A Gift for Little Guests
Posted by Kate. Filed under DIY Wednesday, Do It Yourself

By Danyelle Mathews

Your little wedding guests are just as excited about your big day as you are. Kids love being included in such grown up events but don’t always have the attention span to outlast long dinners and receptions. Placing fun suitcases (you can purchase them here) at your designated “kids table” or having them handy elsewhere in your venue will keep them entertained through it all.  Compile these cute treat boxes in three easy steps:

Supplies: little guests tag download • scissors • cardstock • twine • suitcase full of fun kid stuff

Step One • Print off the tag download onto cardstock.

Step Two • Cut out a tag and attach it to a suitcase using twine.

Step Three • Fill the suitcase with fun things!  We filled ours with crayons, a disposable camera, a candy necklace, notepad + paper, and novelty games found in a party store

Be sure to customize your suitcases to the ages and interests of your little guests.
