Wrapped Around Your Finger: All the Small Things

When all is said and done, the result of months and months of planning are a handful of snapshots. But although most of my DIY efforts only survive in the form of few remnants rescued for a scrapbook, I look fondly on the nights and weekends I spent creating them, the shopping trips to buy supplies, the excitement and tears (yes, tears), the Internet research, the tries and re-tries, the bridesmaid crafting parties, and more.

Here, I present to you, all our small things: the details.


Our venue’s entrance sign


The wedding sign borrowed from our caterer


My custom bracelet from Etsy seller tattychic


Our rings pinned into my crinoline along with a bit of ”˜bee luck”¦


My shoes and bridesmaids’ bouquets


My lovely bouquet

    @Jamcnair: Thanks! I bought the bells themselves at Joann Fabric (online) and made the tags myself. I could have sworn I did a post about them, but I couldn’t find it! Chalk it up to pre-wedding bride brain :)
