1  Re: Cupcake's Non-Traditional Wedding Thread in Weddings and Bridal Showers by the_crafty_cupcake on: June 03, 2009 06:15:52 AM
I'm not sure if the engagement party will have its own thread or not. Pretty much EVERYTHING is going to be crafted or made in some way for that party. I think we're going to various stores this weekend for supplies. Smiley

Here is a picture of the outside of the engagement party invite:

BEAUTIFUL colors - the picture just doesn't do it justice.

Here is a picture of what I created to print on vellum on the inside (important bits blacked out for obv. reasons):

And for good measure, here are two pictures of my engagement ring (which when I saw it in Jared, I didn't want to try it on!!) & wedding band:

2  Flowers & Centerpieces in Weddings and Bridal Showers by the_crafty_cupcake on: June 02, 2009 12:25:41 PM
We are very blessed that we have friends that are willing to help us out in any way possible.

A good friend of Ashley's is going to do our flowers for wholesale cost. We've agreed that the centerpieces will look something like this:
but the bowl will be lower and wider, the candles will be white and the surrounding flowers will be white gerber daisies, like this

The girls are probably going to be wearing blood red dresses, so they will be carrying white gerber daisy bunches with black satin ribbon wrapped around the stems. I'll be carrying a blend of red, orange, yellow flowers, probably some roses, some daisies and some other flowers. I know, so specific LOL.

3  Cupcake's Non-Traditional Wedding Thread - Pictures Added!!! in Weddings and Bridal Showers by the_crafty_cupcake on: May 28, 2009 01:17:46 PM
Hello! I used to have an account, but somehow, somewhere, Crafster gobbled it up. Oh well! Let's start anew. Smiley

I am Joanna, but go by Cupcake and have been for quite some time now. I am engaged to be married to another woman (*gasp* the HORROR lol) named Ashley, or Ash for short. She's my rock, my savior, the other part of my heart that makes it complete.

***piece of advice***

Please do not come into this thread spewing forth hatred towards same-sex couples. If you don't agree with my lifestyle, move on. Thank you!!!


That being said...

We've set our wedding date for 09.25.10 and are going to try and stick to our very strict $5,000 budget. Originally we wanted to host it in a backyard, but have not been able to find one big enough. Now we're looking at community centers and are very hopeful!

I totally forgot to mention a key part... we're planning this wedding to happen back in New Jersey, but are currently in Jacksonville, FL.

I would like to have as much of the wedding be DIY and crafty as possible. I originally wanted to make my dress, but knowing the incredible amount of stress that brings, decided against it.

Please follow along as I come in here to show off projects, rant and gush about planning a wedding!! Eep!!
