Hiya Hive, so nice to see you again. 🙂 Mrs. Apple Cider here from NYC. Writing for Weddingbee was such a delightful experience. I loved every minute of it. Choosing my favorite post was super hard. I must say that I loved sharing all of my DIY projects. I think my favorite post was introducing our invitations to the hive. We worked so hard on them and truly loved creating them. It’s been a year since we got married and Mr. AC and I are doing well. We are still in love and still enjoying our time as husband and wife (over a year now!). We are super pumped to be moving back to North Carolina in a few months. I hope you are all enjoying your wedding plans and love the process as much as I do.
What a process our invitations were! They seriously took me months, but they were worth it!
These were the pieces that I created:
- Invitation 5X7
- RSVP card 3X5
- Info card 2X4
- Map 4X6
- Tag 1X1
