If you have been looking for a working typewriter for your wedding then you have to stop by RomiandRomeo on Etsy. They have a great selection of working typewriters which is not something you find everyday. The prices are great and the colors to choose from are amazing. So you've just got to check them out.
I found some cute, wedding signs at The Peculiar Pelican that I thought was adorable and affordable.
Check out the wedding selection here in the Etsy shop.
For all the DIY brides this is another project that you can save at least $50 if you choose to do it yourself and I am talking about your wedding map. Yes, these days most people have OnStar or can look up directions on their electronic devices, however, if you are a bride who is having a vintage wedding, you can consider a wedding map as part of the theme of the day.
Wedding maps are most useful if you are having your ceremony and reception at two different locations, especially if the second locale is more than 15 minutes away, then a Wedding map would come in very handy for your guests.
Another great reason to include a Wedding Map with the invitation would be for your out-of-town guests that may have a hard time getting around town and you don't want them to show up late on wedding day because they got lost getting to the ceremony or reception.
The video above is one of the best I've found on YouTube for making wedding maps. I really hope that it will be helpful to you as you plan your wedding and tackle your DIY list.
This centerpiece is beautiful and definitely one you can make yourself once you study the picture carefully.
You will need:
Cylinder Vases of varying heights;
Cut Curly Willow Branches to submerge in the water;
Fake Ice Cubes to stagger between the curly willow branches in the vases;
Floral Stem Wire to hold the fake ice between the branches and
If you click on all the items you will be taken to Save On Crafts where you can buy everything you need.
However, you can get some vases even cheaper at a local dollar store or online here at DollarTree.com!
