Katie & Casey: DIY Wedding.

I do crafts is soooooo excited to share this post with you! The wedding of Katie and Casey this past weekend was PERFECT! Katie and Casey are so in love and it was very evident! It was a hot day in Columbia, SC but a very light drizzle started as soon as the wedding started and cooled everyone off. The Millstone at Adams pond was a beautiful venue and great people to work with. We will share some more pictures from the Pat Wright Photography and video from Dust of the Ground but Lauren got some shots during the day of the projects we worked on for the wedding…

We ordered the poms from Fiesta Pom Pom on etsy and tied them to the chairs with fishing line for pew enders…

The Guest book table had a typewriter from yard sale, blue beaded vase from thrift store, pictures of Katie and Casey’s parents from their weddings and a photo book ordered from Shutterfly for the guests to sign…

Lauren designed the programs, got them printed locally, and the bridesmaids and friends all helped assemble them. They were folded in half and taped to a popsicle stick with double sided tape. Then finished off with a red rafia ribbon on the handle…

The Centerpieces consisted of: Burlap table runners borrowed from another friend’s wedding, lace from local fabric outlet, collected wine bottles, antique tins from a local thrift store, mason jars with fillings such as candles, split peas, coffee, buttons, wine corks, etc. All the items were stacked on books found from a thrift store for less than a dollar a piece…

Chalkboard paint was used on multiple items for the day. These wooden plaques came from a local craft store and we painted the chalkboard designs on them with the paint…

We made TONS of this doily banner! They consisted of string from a craft store and paper doilies folded in half and taped together on the string.

Some of the items that sat around were from thrift or antique stores but some were just borrowed items for friends…

There was a mantle inside the cake room and it was the perfect spot for the bridal portrait. Paired with found items and baby’s breath from the grocery store it was the perfect arrangement…

For the LOVE banner we got cardboard letters from a craft store, covered them with glitter, glued clothespins to the back and hung them on some twine from the mantle…

The favor table was so much fun! Each favor was a glass bottle coke (from Sam’s), striped paper straws (from Amazon), and a pack of peanuts all tied together with ribbon… The sign on the table said “Pinch, Poke, We owe you a Coke! Thanks for sharing this special day with us!” We found and old coffee sack, retro coke glasses and an antique coke tray to dress up the table…

For the cakes Katie got a friend of hers to make three, 2 tier, white iced cakes. We did the decorations after they got there. We painted the wooden figurines we got from a craft store. The gerber daisies and baby’s breath was from a grocery store. The two banners on the outside cakes we made as we showed in our cake banner tutorial. The middle one we ordered from etsy

Katie and Casey had communion for the two of them during the wedding, the wine box and plate for the bread were borrowed and the brown stained goblet came from a thrift store for a quarter….

Look at IDC’s very own Jessica looking beautiful as a bridesmaid! Ow Ow!

There were 3 flower girls and each one carried something different… the first girl carried the canopy we featured in our craft tutorial last week…

The second carried a felt banner on a dowel rod that read, “Here comes the Bride”

The third girl carried a basket from the dollar store and message hearts from our very first tutorial on the blog

And there she is! The happy blushing bride, Katie! So excited to see her groom!

I know I’ve said this already but it really was the perfect day! IDC can’t wait for the next wedding we get to help out with so we can share it with all you!

Wow this is such a lovely free flowing natural wedding. Its so nice to see all the different elements that go to make their day special. Well done you guys. Lots of fantastic ideas. It just goes to show the creativity of home spum ideas give a lot of warmth to an occassion that can sometimes seem starchy.
