DIY Wedding Fun

When Anna arrived on Thursday night, she brought not only a wedding dress, but a whole suitcase full of wedding craft fun.  Yesterday we worked on place cards for the reception.  She had printed the names on circular stickers using the font she had purchased for the save-the-date cards and invitations. I cut strips from some gorgeous Japanese paper she bought in Boston and then she cut them with a decorative cutter.

Here are the finished place cards.

Since this is a backyard wedding in the South in the summer, she thought fans might be in order.  They arrived yesterday.  We will decorate these with ribbon.

They're beautiful! I can tell you're really looking forward to this wedding! Hope the weather cooperates on the special day.

Thanks so much, Jean. I wish it wasn't so hot, but when we are all together for such a happy day, who cares?
Kind regards,

Beautiful place cards! The fans brought back sweet memories. Amber was married in our church in August and it was not air conditioned. We had the youngest cousins with baskets hand out fans at the door.
I know everything will be just beautiful Dana.

Thanks, Mary. We have had such a lovely few days with Anna and I've loved making things with her for her wedding. With the heat down here, I think our fans will be a big hit, too! Most of the other principal players arrived yesterday, including the groom. I'm trying to savour every moment.
Warm regards,
