B's Handmade Wedding

B's wedding was so much fun! The whole day was just beautiful.  It was supposed to rain in the morning but it stopped early and the sun came out. It was a little steamy but it felt good! 

I promised a peek at all the things B made for her wedding.  Most are iPhone pics, sorry! I took only a few pics that day, Hubby took a few during the ceremony.  He gave himself a C in photography. I am not going to argue with him.  I think we need to sit down and teach him the camera, now that's a marriage test!!  

She cut all the place cards out with her Cricut.  They match her invitations.  They had a little cut out stand in the back.  They looked really fancy because the white paper was sparkly.

Here are the table number and the centerpieces she made.  Her hubby and the guys he works with have a thing about the number 13 so they always use 12+1 instead.  Her cake plate terrariums were really cool.  She made 20 of them a few months before the wedding and then just kept them up.  

These are the favors they made.  

During the ceremony she had a basket out with all the programs and little packets with a tissue in them.  

Here is a closer look at the program:
and the back...

There were a few other things like an advice box and she made this great Mr & Mrs sign to hang at their table but I didn't get to snap a pic of those.  B did such a great job and her personality really showed through in all the decor.  

They also had a photo booth at the wedding.  I know it is a hot trend now but what I loved about this one was that it wasn't a set up booth with curtains, it was a real one that looked like the one in the mall.  
The machine printed 2 copies.  One for you to keep and the other went into the book for you to write a message next to.  Hubby and I went in.  Then I went in with my friend M from high school.  Then M, B and I took our turn.  It was funny and so much fun.  

I haven't really mentioned too much here but part of the reason there haven't been too many posts lately is that much of my free time is spent working out.  I hit my goal of losing 20 pounds before the wedding!! It was thrilling and my dress zipped right up!! 20 pounds is just a point on the map of my journey but it feels good to be taking control.  I danced all night at this wedding and didn't have to sit down or take a break.  I know it is because of the weight loss and because I have been a Zumba fool.  Thanks to all my zumba ladies for your support.  I actually lost another 1.6 pounds this week!!

Just letting you know that you didn't blank out your friend's name and her dad's name at the top of the program. Since you have exclusively referred to her by her initial only (I'm assuming for privacy) it might be important to you to fix.

In other news, that looks like a gorgeous wedding! I love all the handmade details. :)
