Here Goes Nothing...Part 2

I found a blog on Pinterest written by a recently married bride. She hilariously listed a few things as would have done differently at her wedding. Having a fancy hanger to display her dress was one of those things. I'm glad I listened to her and got this beautiful Mrs. Frye hanger, with ivory ribbon, from a Etsy shop!

Derek and I both have lost a few important family members that, if still living, wouldn't have missed our big day for the world. We wanted to include them all somehow in the wedding. We placed this 'In Loving Memory of' candle on my great grandmothers vintage vanity with a few photos.

I came across a pin that featured all the members of a bridal party with different super hero cuff-links. It blew my mind. If you have met Derek then you know he is a little obsessed with Superman. So I included these Superman cuff-links in his wedding gift. A subtle way to show love for his childhood hero. 

When I was little, my mom made me write thank you notes when I received gifts. I have grown to appreciate there importance but I still don't like writing them. So anything that makes this task a little bit easier gets my vote. I saw a pin of a couple holding up a Mr. & Mrs. banner to use for their Save the Dates. We had already taken our Save the Date photos but I really liked the idea so I put a little twist on it. We took a photo holding a Thank You banner, purchased here, after our wedding. I took the photo and created Thank You post cards with 'Just Married' custom postage! (If you still haven't received a Thank You note yet IM SORRY! I know I'm late but I am almost done!)   

I came across a Pin that listed celebrities you could invite to your wedding and get a card in return! I invited about 5 different celebs/public figures and got two cards back in return. One from Minnie and Mickey Mouse and the other from the President and First Lady. It was really cool to find these in our mail box.   

I could go on and on but I pretty sure you are over my wedding by now...right??

Until next time, Keep Pinning.
