Real Wedding: Mary & Andreas

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful celebration of Mary and Andreas which took place at Casa Tortuga in San Pedro, and Ambergris Caye in Belize.

Mary and Andreas met while she was traveling in Thailand. He was her diving instructor. So they held the wedding in Belize to capture their love found deep at sea – complete with recycled driftwood, sea turtles, and diving during the week getaway.

Real Wedding: Ann & Joe

This week’s Real Wedding is the beautiful destination wedding celebration of Ann and Joe, held at Beaches Resort in Negril, Jamaica. The couple shared a week with 40 of their family and friends that flew in from all over the world to help them celebrate. Their wedding included many DIY elements that the couple made like the arch for the ceremony, aisle markers, girls bouquets, shell ring holders, favor tags for the fedoras, sweetheart table, and coral chevron table runner.

The couples wedding day started off with thunder and lightning, but quickly cleared up before the ceremony, which made for some beautiful Caribbean sunset photos.

DIY Hot Cocoa Wedding Favor

For a winter themed wedding, we suggest finding a wedding favor that matches the season. We always enjoy when brides send their guests home at the end of the night with a sweet treat, and this DIY project helps with just that task! Whether you choose a tried-and-true family recipe, or find a recipe online, this favor will be a personal touch that your guests will love.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Steps:

  1. Find a favorite hot cocoa recipe that can be made ahead of time (without the liquid, of course!), and print it on a recipe card. You can even coordinate your recipe card with your wedding invitations by using enclosure cards.
  2. Layer the ingredients in a clean Mason jar – this is a fun place to play with colors, by separating the sugar and cocoa powder.
  3. Secure the lid of the jar, and attach the colored craft paper circle to the top for an added pop of color. Attach the gift tag stickers to the front of the jar.
  4. Punch a hole in the recipe card, then loop a ribbon through the hole. Tie the ribbon around the neck of the jar to complete the gift.

Your guests will love this personalized treat, especially during the cold winter season.

DIY Winter Wedding Invitations

While our personalized wedding invitation designs offer plenty of options for customization, many brides choose to  go above and beyond, adding DIY elements to their wedding invitations.

Since we’re heading into the winter wedding season, we put together a snow inspired twist on the traditional invitation. Simple but stunning, this easy DIY adds a ton of personality to your wedding invitation.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Steps:

  1. Match a thick ribbon to your wedding invitation. Wrap the ribbon around the invitation and cut, leaving a bit of overlap. Secure with glue or double sided tape on the back of the invitation. We suggest that you do not attach the ribbon to the invitation, but instead to itself.
  2. Turn the invitation back over to the front. Take the thin ribbon and tie a knot around the middle of the thick ribbon. It should slightly pinch the thick ribbon.
  3. Take the plastic snowflake and tie another knot with the thin ribbon to attach the snowflake to the ribbons. Depending on your snowflakes, you may need to secure it with a small bit of string.
  4. Complete the invitation by tying the thin ribbon into a pretty bow.

Remember to keep the extra materials in mind when choosing an envelope! This DIY project would be perfect to tuck inside a pocket fold.
