a few wedding diys

I can't believe that in less than 5 days I will be Mrs. Wallace. I get to marry my best friend in the entire world. The beautiful wedding I've always dreamed of will be here. It's just crazy and so surreal to think about. I just can't wait.

I don't have any time for any outfit posts this week, but I wanted to share with y'all just a few of the DIYs we've made for the wedding! My entire wedding is shabby chic/antique/DIY. I'm so ready to go decorate the hall on Friday!

wedding DIYS

1. All of the wedding party will be doing the toast in the mason jars we made. Us gals will probably drink out of it all night, but I doubt the boys will!
2. I found this old floral box at a thrift store for $2.50! Just a little sprucing up and a little banner, and wa-lah! The perfect card box!
3. At the bottom of our wedding invitation it says "dinner & dancing to follow" so I thought it would be cute to have a sign! Mom and I pulled apart some pallet boards that she got for free, and then she painted it (and how cute is her handwriting!).
4. My mom and stepmom found these little burlap sacks for like 30 cents each I think! My sister wrote on the tags and mom filled them with birdseed there will be a sign that says "to shower the lovebirds" for our exit! 
5. I had a lot of excess/old jewelry pieces and all I did was hot glue them on to this wooden W from hobby lobby!
6. I made these signs on picmonkey.com for the reserved tables, and I put them in thrifted frames, of course!


  1. I love it! I'm semi-jealous that you're getting to decorate yourself.. I really would've loved to do it, but the time frame we had for everything didn't make it possible because they wouldn't let us go in the house/hall until the morning of the wedding {we did get to set some bigger stuff in there though}, so a lady from my church back home that does wedding planning did all of the decorations for me. I absolutely loved it, but you know.. I like to put my own touch on everything, so yeah, some of it wasn't how I envisioned it, but it was still gorgeous! :)

    Have lots of fun girl! Y'all have done an amazing job so far it seems!


  2. Love the card box you created! Congrats on this weekend :)

  3. Yay, so exciting! I can't wait to hear all about it! Great DIYs too :)

  4. Super cute DIY decorations!! I can't wait to see how it all comes together. You're going to be a beautiful bride and I wish you the greatest day ever for your wedding!!! Congrats :)

  5. Congratulations doll! Your decorations are so pretty and really fun. I love the bejeweled W. Gorgeous! Your wedding will be beautiful....Happy for you. :)


  6. How sweet everything looks, I love the little burlap bags with happily ever after, so cute!

  7. I love it all! Congrats to you both! Wishing you the best day and a great future together!


  8. I think it's so neat that you are doing the decorations yourself! Where did you get your ideas? I'd love to do the same for my wedding someday. I have a feeling my Pinterst will be full of good ideas!

  9. I absolutely love the big W! What an awesome idea and a good way to use up all of those excess jewelry pieces. It would also look good in your guys' home, too!
