Dolly DIY Devotee

So after all the Dolly excitement, we’ve barely had time to squeeze everything in! And the same went for the shoot itself. Whilst we’re super happy with the way things turned out, like many brides I think, we’d have given our right arm for a little bit more time to add some extra DIY details, mainly for you guys!

So instead, I’m going to share those bits and pieces of paper pretty with you and maybe you’d like to use them for your own DIY plans.

Martha’s Ranunculas Downloadables

From who other than Martha can you trust to find everything you need?

This DIY stationery template set fitted perfectly with our ranunculas bouquet and (bonus) the colour scheme too. They also come in tulip and rose designs FYI. I only wish we had had time to print ’em out!

DIY Post It Notes

From another of my favourite blogs, Eat Drink Chic, I thought these fitted well with the Pop theme, given their bright colours and cool font of the stamps, but as with everything DIY, they’re totally customisable. Originally created as a valentines surprise for your beloved, I imagined them as cute little table cards, like the ones Charlotte had at her Wedding for guests to pass around. Conjure up your own phrases and don’t be responsible for the outcome!

I’m thinking ‘The Best Man is Hot’, ‘I’m wearing my best Pants’, ‘Mark your Dance Card’ and ‘Will you Marry Me’…

See the whole post here.

So that’s it.

We still love DIY Devotee and so please do send in any projects you would like to share with the RMW commmunity that you have whipped up and as always, if you have any requests jot them down in the comments box and we’ll have a think about what we can do. 🙂

Yours Truly,

DIY Devotee

Spurred on by the success of last weeks DIY Devotee, I wanted to share another yummy idea today which Charlotte spotted over on Something Old, Something New.

These candy coloured cookies make perfect little messages for your guests, whether you choose to embellish them with your name and wedding date, a thank you or welcome message, or even naughty/nice wedding phrases to get guests talking they make perfectly sweet favours. All you need is a bit of creativity and a piping bag!

The message cookie cutter is available from Williams Sonoma for $19.95 and they do ship internationally, you just have to call them to set it up.

Peonies and Pearls

Our other share this week comes from Adelle over at Peonies and Pearls. Adelle was sharing some of the clever DIY’s she did for her own wedding with us and I was particularly taken with this retro cute Just Married Banner.

If you would like Adelle to share the template with you she used to make this cute banner (she also cleverly used it for a a Thank You card prop) there are full how-to details and her email address over on the blog post.

It’s kind of gone out of vogue now, but I love the idea of driving away earlier in the evening to spend a bit more energy than the usual collapsed state with your brand spanking new hubby and this would make a wicked photo op – even just from church to reception or photo location.

So that’s it for this week. Enjoy folks and happy weekend planning 🙂

Yours Truly,
