1  My Etsy Wedding {Recap} IMAGE OBESE in Weddings and Bridal Showers by snips and snails on: December 19, 2010 06:17:14 PM
So, some of you may remember my other post:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=327284.0

I'm not super crafty, but I definitely have a great appreciation for all things handmade, so most of our wedding was collected from Etsy.
Thank you all for the opportunity to share all of my finds Smiley

Adorable caketoppers from Bunny With A Tool Belt


Flower Ring from MeridethGrace



Heart Sunglasses from Ebay
Mustaches on sticks from WhiskerWorks on Etsy
Pinwheels from Rule42




"&" Sign from Thebackporchshoppe


Photo Booth Poster from TaylorsType


Groom & Groomsmen Socks (online purchase)


My Shoes Smiley (Not crafty... just thrifty)


Flower girl baskets were actually clear paint cans from Michael's ($1 each!)
*Notice, I ended up with different dresses!! The tutu's were too tight for 2 of my girls, so, in a last minute panic, I picked something new.


I used locally bottled soda as place cards (hang tags free from my mom's stash)

and the straws are from Etsy seller HeyYoYo and the
Thank You Pins from Minepress

**The card says "Put this straw inside your pop. Smile for the camera, it's a great photo op!"
And we got:


Fingerprint Guestbook Tree from Bluedetoi


My Hair flowers were from Jujacrafts



And I think that's it! Thanks for letting me share, I hope you're still here!

Centerpieces: (I know they are hanging in the picture, but I bet they look just as charming on a table with a circle of cute fabric underneath!)

I think I would ask the guests to bring a dish to pass... this might help alleviate some of the cooking & preparation stress.

6  A Painting for Lennon in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by snips and snails on: April 17, 2010 05:52:49 PM
So, my little girl cousin is named Lennon Riley.
In her short 7 years here on earth, she has received countless Beatles related gifts.
This one is no exception <3

I have been looking at pictures of hot air balloons on google image search for awhile and, today, I decided to give it a go!

(She loved it, btw)

7  Re: Prohibition has made nothing but trouble-Al Capone in Weddings and Bridal Showers by snips and snails on: April 11, 2010 03:07:22 PM
What a cute theme!! You're going to have so much fun (looks like you already are), getting everything ready! I, too, can't wait to see your dress. Do you have any inspiration pics yet? I want to share one with you that I saved from somewhere:


It's a Norma Kamali from the 80's (as far as I know!)

8  Save the Date... help with mailing!! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by snips and snails on: March 17, 2010 04:19:41 PM
So, I printed our save the date's on business cards and mounted a small magnet to the back!
Trouble is, now I don't know how to mail them...
Should I just stick them, loose, into a bigger envelope?
Should I mount them, somehow, onto a card or cardstock?
I don't want to spend an awful lot... but I don't want it to look lame.

Advice please!!

And just for visual reference, here is the artwork from the card! (it takes up the whole card, but I left a wide border on it so I could edit it for printing)


Oh, and for anyone following my invitation mini-saga, here is the finished version (front and back) (The patterned paper was from my collection. Convo me if you would like any additional information on it and I will look to see who made it!)


And, just for fun, here's the RSVP (I *THINK* it will be a postcard when all said and done) I also want to change the wording from "circle your choice" to something else. Haven't decided what, yet... any help is appreciated!



COMMENTS AND CRITICISM WELCOME!! It's your advice that has gotten me where I am with these!!

Oooh! Fun!!

I agree with putting a request on etsy using the alchemy feature. That's how I bought my wedding dress, and it's amazing!

Here's a picture that I just LOVE:


I also like this one... I bet you could trim it in red somehow!
