Here Goes Nothing...Part 1

I am what you would call a Pinterest fanatic. Every dish, craft or party I have put together for the last two years has roots in Pinterest. A little less than two months ago I got married, so of course I had a wedding full of ideas I got from from Pinterest users, here are a few.

Mr. & Mrs. Derek Frye starring in 'A Pinterest Wedding'

I knew from the beginning I didn't want to have a normal guest book. Who really sits down and reads lines and lines of names scribbled in a little white book. No-one, that's who. So when I saw a drinkable version of the guestbook I knew it was the one for me us. We created a bottle to open on our 5, 10, 15 and 20th anniversary. I cant wait to eat the top of our wedding cake and pop open the first bottle on April 20th 2014.


It takes a village to help a bride navigate a wedding. I wanted to get my bridesmaids (21 and over), my friend who read a scripture during the ceremony and our florist a little something to say thank you. The gift had to be personalized and something they could use again, so what better then flasks! I purchased these flasks here. I'm sensing a boozy theme. How cute are we??

Moving on to a nonalcoholic topic. I needed a place for our wonderful guests to leave cards. I thought about the typical birdcage or box until a ran across the perfect pin-solution, a vintage suitcase! My mom just so happened to have my great grandmothers suitcase with her initials MRS on it. Could it be anymore perfect?

We got married outside which normally means your program, no matter how pretty, gets used as a fan. So when I saw fan-programs on Pinterest I knew that was the way to go! My bridesmaid, Lauren is a wonderful graphic designer. She was able to whip these up with the same theme as our wedding invitations. We displayed these in white vintage dresser drawers.

WARNING: These were very time consuming to make! I recommend paying to have them made as fans. My mom and sisters were up until 2am the night before the wedding cutting and gluing when we should have been getting our beauty sleep!

Well I could go on and on but Ill stop here for now...stay tuned!
