The biggest craft project of my life

So, I didn't take much time to blog this summer. I guess that's pretty typical for summertime. Usually, my knitting takes a backseat. It's too hot. There's no good TV to watch while I work. It's nice outside and we keep busy.

This summer was a different story. There was a LOT of crafting going on. Not just by me either. I had lots of help and lots of support, and together we made lots of lovely accents and necessities for my wedding! I should have taken the time to showcase them here, but I was just a little preoccupied. So please allow me to indulge now!

First off, the invites:

From the outside....

... the front...

and inside.

My momma, grandma, aunt and Shannon worked their fingers to the bone to make these beeeeautiful!

Here are the favors. We picked Skittles, which may have surprised folks, but the colors matched well and... Skittles are yummy.

These M&M favors, complements of my sister-in-law allowed our guests to eat our heads!!


I made jewelery for the bridesmaids. Of course, I forgot to take real pictures... but this is the gist:

We refurbished some old stone columns that Nick had wanted to throw away and used them as our alter, topped with big boston ferns.


My awesome cousin designed, printed and folded lots of programs:




My aunt and mom did my flowers.



Cake by CakeDot

My mom decorated these flip flops for everyone


And finally, these are the table numbers. Each table had coordinates and a location, highlighted on the card.


All together now!

I LOVE IT. A very belated congratulations to the both of you.

Skittles and M&Ms rock the house! Who needs those nasty Jordan almonds no one ever wants to eat because they totally break your teeth and are just gross?

I love your colors, love your bridesmaids jewelry, love the cake! Love it all!
