Back as a MRS!! (Loooong, but lots of DIY PIPS)

Hey Ladies!!!
So my wedding on Saturday came out Absolutely Amazing!!! I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful wedding. The weather was perfect, my hair & makeup came out great, the country club was beautiful and everyone complimented the food, service, etc. I got slightly annoyed with a couple vendors but it was for minor things so it didn't matter (Reviews will be in another post.)
We had one mishap with the limo not showing up, and when it did arrive 35 mins late,  he was apparently running on empty because it shut off and wouldn't start (How does a limo driver run out of gas? lol) But it didn't matter, we canceled the limo and just got a ride to our hotel from DHs parents.

LAST POST-
A couple days before the wedding I was finishing up all my DIY stuff and family was coming into town left and right so we had to keep visiting with people... it was nuts! I never even got to write my "Last Post as a Miss". So I quickly want to say THANK YOU to all you wonderful ladies who are so full of ideas, inspiration, kind words, and support. Honestly, there is no way I could have planned this wedding by myself if I hadn't had your help. For the newly engaged girls .. use this board!! The girls are so sweet and kind, the G2Gs are always fun, and the support system is incredible!

DIY-
As mentioned, I was crazed the last few days finishing up my million DIY projects. On Sunday before the wedding, my mom had stopped by and I showed her everything I was in the middle of, she says, "You do know what day it is, right?!" LOL .. I do my best work when I'm under pressure.
But I never got to share the things I made so here they are:


BATHROOM BASKETS:

I found small hexagon-shaped boxes on sale at Michaels and filled them instead of the traditional basket.

TABLE NUMBERS:
Cut these out of the thin 1/32" plywood from Michaels and then painted and attached to corks.


ESCORT CARDS:
Good thing a friend of my moms collects corks!



MR & MRS SIGNS FOR SWEETHEART TABLE:
I wanted something to sit on the table rather than hang off the chair so I bought the letters and glued them to the wood planks I had painted. Then just decorated.




FLOWER CRATE:
I saw an inspration picture of a placecard table setup and wanted to replicate it so I bought a crate at Joanns, cut it a bit shorter since it was too tall, stained it, and then painted a monogram and our wedding date in a style that reminded me of a Wine Crate. My florist then put a full display of white Gladiolus and Hydrangeas into the crate and it was set onto the placecard table.





CARD BOX:
By far, my favorite project. I Luckily! found an awesomely perfect barrel-pot thing at Home Goods, covered it in a string of vines, added some purple grapes and then bought a styrofoam circle which fit perfectly as a Lid. I cut out the card slit, painted the whole thing brown and then covered it with Cork halves.







Thats all folks! :) I literally was up until 1 or 2 am every night, the week of my wedding but since I have fun doing this kind of stuff, I didn't mind.

Thanks for letting me share and I'll be back with Vendor Reviews.
