DIY Wedding Ceremony Projects

Since Rob and I celebrated our very first wedding anniversary this past weekend, I wanted to share some of the details that made our wedding so special to us. I couldn't help but get my little diy hands all over the details of our wedding and I came up with quite a few diy wedding projects.

We had a pretty traditional church wedding ceremony, but to make it even more memorable, we started it off with a slide show of our childhood photos and photos of us together. The childhood photos were set to the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" sung by Israel Kamakawiwo Ole' and photos of us as a couple were shown to the tune of "Better Together" by Jack Johnson. These songs were perfect for the occasion.

For the ceremony I made our own diy wedding programs. Using some velum paper, pretty silver printed paper, cardstock, and little charms and ribbon I created these multi-layer diy wedding programs:

The wedding programs were held in a white basket that was lined with a red cloth napkin which matched our wedding colors. After the ceremony, the guests blew bubbles at us which were tied with red ribbons and were contained in a matching basket.

But my very favorite DIY wedding project was our custom hand painted aisle runner. I created a custom monogram of our names which was used throughout the wedding and then hand painted it onto a white wedding aisle runner. The result, a beautiful custom monogram aisle runner.

These projects are shared on diy day.

Congrats! I can't even remeber what we did on our first anniversary any more. We've been married over 11 years and with a four year old, I barely remember 6 hours ago! LOL

Love your creative touches! Great blog!
