  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch     Make these custom DIY message food trays for a groom's dinner or as a rustic touch for a groom’s dinner or an outdoor wedding. The trays themselves are made from fallen leaves and are very inexpensive (roughly $1 apiece). And they're easier to make than you might think. All you need is a wood burning tool and some alphabet hot stamps to get started.     Materials: Wood burning tool (available on Amazon) Alphabet hot stamps (available on Amazon) Leafware 9x6 platters (available on Amazon)   How To:     1. Start by attaching the first letter of your message, or in this case initials of the bride and groom, to the wood burning tool. The letters very easily just twist on and off the base, similar to a screw. After the first letter has been attached, turn the tool on and wait for it to heat up.     2. Once the wood burning tool has had about 5 minutes to heat up, it should be ready to use. You may want to test it on the back of one of the trays first, just be sure it's had enough time to get warm. While holding the tray up on it's side, as shown, stamp the first letter onto the lip of the tray. To stamp with the wood burning tool, press down evenly for just a few seconds before pulling the stamp off, to reveal the burned letter.     3. Turn the wood burning tool off, wait for it to cool down, and replace the tip with the chisel tip. This tip will create a small straight line. Turn the tool on again and wait for it to heat back up. Then create a plus sign by stamping a line once vertically and then once horizontally.     4. Again, turn the wood burning tool off, wait for it to cool down, and replace the tip with the the next letter initial. Repeat the same process that was used in step 2. Let the wood burning tool cool down and remove the letter attachment.     5. Lastly, to create a decorative border, all the way around the tray, you'll need to attach the chisel tip again. Then, stamp diagonal lines in opposite directions (two one way then two the other, repeat). Now, your tray is ready to be used.     Additional stamping ideas for these trays include phrases like "Mr + Mrs," "Bride and Groom," etc.

  • Sharing information and requests with your guests with some pretty signage has become commonplace at weddings these days. But we love when couples take a whimsical and sometimes cheeky twist by using some poetry skills. Rhyming phases are not only cute, but they also stick in guests’ memories! Here are a few favorite examples: 

    At the Ceremony
    Encourage your guests to sit wherever they like with a sign that reads: “Family and friends of the bride and groom, sit together, there’s plenty of room!”

    On the Guest Book Table

    A sweet and creative poem will delight your guests as they sign your guest book, and give them a little something to read if there’s a wait.

  • Project and Photos by Brittni Mehlhoff of Paper & Stitch   Sometimes the best flowers for boutonnieres have the shortest stems. Which is why this delphinium and freesia bout is so cute. Using floral wire to keep stems sturdy and elongate them, you can make these beautiful boutonnieres for your wedding party in minutes.     Of course, they're also a small fraction of the price of what a boutonniere from your florist will cost, saving you money on your big day. Here's how to make your own!     Supplies: Floral Wire Floral Tape Washi Tape Scissors Purple Stock Freesia Delphinium Pittosporum How-To:     1. First, cut the stem of a freesia flower and the delphinium. Add a piece of cut floral wire to each flower to act as the new, longer and more sturdy stem. You can do this by poking the wire through the bottom of the stem and up through the top of the flower. Form a hook shape, and pull the wire back down to secure it. Each wire should be 4 to 6 inches long.     2. Next, trim the bottom leaves from Pittosporum and bottom blooms from the purple stock, to prepare them for the boutonniere.     3. Arrange all the flowers and add the Pittosporum behind them, to act as the base, before wrapping all of the stems with floral tape.     4. Cut the bottom 1-2 inches from the stems, to give the boutonniere a clean, short look.     5. Wrap the stems in decorative washi tape, in your wedding colors, or a minimal grey, to cover over the floral tape.     There you have it! Keep in water until it's time to pin them onto the groom and groomsmen.

  • Everyone have the unique body type, and every of them has its own advantages, the thing you should do is to find it and accent your features. The hourglass is the shape that all women strive to achieve, so flaunt your assets. If your bust and hips are equally proportioned and you have a waist that is clearly defined, I have to say you are so lucky. Here are some suggestions for choosing short cocktail dresses you will need.

    What you should know is to avoid high neck lines – you want to show off your cleavage, not hide it. Choose fitted cocktail dresses. Shift dresses and bodycon dresses are perfect. Dresses with pencil skirts will skim your silhouette beautifully. Look for dresses that nip in at the waist and stop just above the knee. Emphasize your slender waist by accessorizing with a contrasting belt.

    What to choose for your figure? Timeless fifties-style dresses are another great way to flaunt your enviable curves, with defined midsections and flared skirts. Strapless options are ideal. Wrap dresses will also suit you, emphasizing and enhancing your even proportions while cinching in at the waist.

    At last, if you want to find your dream dress and stand out from the crowd easily, I recommend Alizee Bridal to you, it offers a large selection of cocktail dresses, and you will find the perfect one at affordable price.

Each wire should be 4 to 6 inches long.     2. Next, trim the bottom leaves from Pittosporum and bottom blooms from the purple stock, to prepare them for the boutonniere.     3. Arrange all the flowers and add the Pittosporum behind them, to act as the base, before wrapping all of the stems with floral tape.     4. Cut the bottom 1-2 inches from the stems, to give the boutonniere a clean, short look.     5. Wrap the stems in decorative washi tape, in your wedding colors, or a minimal grey, to cover over the floral tape.     There you have it! Keep in water until it's time to pin them onto the groom and groomsmen.

  • Everyone have the unique body type, and every of them has its own advantages, the thing you should do is to find it and accent your features. The hourglass is the shape that all women strive to achieve, so flaunt your assets. If your bust and hips are equally proportioned and you have a waist that is clearly defined, I have to say you are so lucky. Here are some suggestions for choosing short cocktail dresses you will need.

    What you should know is to avoid high neck lines – you want to show off your cleavage, not hide it. Choose fitted cocktail dresses. Shift dresses and bodycon dresses are perfect. Dresses with pencil skirts will skim your silhouette beautifully. Look for dresses that nip in at the waist and stop just above the knee. Emphasize your slender waist by accessorizing with a contrasting belt.

    What to choose for your figure? Timeless fifties-style dresses are another great way to flaunt your enviable curves, with defined midsections and flared skirts. Strapless options are ideal. Wrap dresses will also suit you, emphasizing and enhancing your even proportions while cinching in at the waist.

    At last, if you want to find your dream dress and stand out from the crowd easily, I recommend Alizee Bridal to you, it offers a large selection of cocktail dresses, and you will find the perfect one at affordable price.
