July 2012 Weddings
Options

Introduction

Hi, my name is Jacklyn. I have been on the site for awhile and posted on some other boards, however, with our wedding date getting closer and me more nervous about getting things done I find I am on here a lot more and should introduce myself!

My fiance and I are getting married July 14th in Oregon...that is the day my grandpa passed away in 2005 and I feel like this is a way he can be a part of this special day with us. We are going for a vintage inspired wedding (with my grandpa's mom's dishes from the 1800's included) and the colors will be yellow and grey. I am doing a ton of DIY projects and even though I change them about 3 times before I settle on something, my fiance still loves me! : )

Congratulations to all the other brides out there and I look forward to sharing these next few months with you!

    Absolutely...I've attached a few pics for you, including one of my dress! :) Some are difficult to see, but hopefully you get the idea. These are by far not everything either...just what I have completed so far.


    The only project I loved the first time around!


    I am in the process of re-doing these with a lighter yellow....


    This will be the sign for the cake table, which is the same material and colors as the cupcake tree below:



    This is a "mock" up of the party favors....There is a mini lemon, sugar cubes and tea bags for sweet tea. The lids will be covered in the same material as above.


    This is one of the 4 direction signs cause the venue is pretty far out in the country.


    Last but not lease, NWR picture of our puppy Molly, which is the reason for some of the mess in the backgrounds of the pictures. :)

    Thanks! I'm guessing you are referring to the direction signs? Yes, I found the wood plaques with the rope already attached at Craftwarehouse. Then I found the wood letters at Michaels and just traced the arrow from a printed one online.
