SUYL: Wedding Details

This week @ Kelly's Korner SUYL series is Your wedding party/flowers/details. So, I'm going to start with our getting ready process. I did my own hair and make-up (I always do my own- VERY few people have a clue about curly hair) with a little help from my stylist at home. We got ready at my parents' beautiful home in ME.


I also did my sister's hair and helped with my other sister and my cousin's hair.. all on the morning of my wedding.. haha. No stressing around here!
Oh, and make sure you pee BEFORE you put your Spanx on.. or your wedding party will get to know you in ways closer than your mother...


And like a true DIY-er, I made my own bouquet too.. the night before my wedding. Here are my sisters putting on the final touches: (Callas & Roses)
Another DIY thing- I made my girls candle bouquets instead of flowers- we had a night wedding, and they looked gorgeous!!!
I actually didn't DIY our aisle runner- I designed the graphic, but had this made:
I also made the ring bearer's pillow (embroidered it with our names too) and flower girl's basket:
I DIY'd every step of our invites & programs:
Our cake was inspired by something I saw on theknot.com:
We had the best wedding party ever!! Seriously, what wedding party goes rock climbing, plays basketball and races around a track for you??
Can't forget my adorable flower girl & cousin:


This is what happens when your 6'4" & 5'10" groomsmen switch jackets:


And lastly, a little of the ceremony:


So.. as you can see, here @ WW we're all about DIYing & having fun, relaxing & enjoying those special times!!

PS- If you haven't read about our "interesting" ceremony, you can do so here.

It's all so beautiful and unique. I love it. I had to pee in a bucket at my wedding ... :) ... my bridesmaids got to know me very well. Maybe I should have written about that story - another day I guess.

Hey, girl! Oh wow, you looked gorgeous!! Lmao at the comment about curly hair and stylists...we always get screwed, don't we?! I can't believe you were doing other peoples' hair and making bouquets! You are DIY wedding wonderwoman:)

Those candle bouquets were so pretty, I've never seen that before. And you know I love a fantastically layed out wedding program;) It's so cool that you made everything so personal!

Your wedding was gorgeous! I LOVE your hair.

We used candles for our bridesmaids instead of flowers, too, and it made a gorgeous show.

I'm impressed with all your DIY-ing. :)
