They are both gorgeous!  I can't believe they're your first quilts!  I really want to try and make one, but haven't got over the whole intimidation factor yet...  Smiley x

Pretty, I like the simple look to them!  I should really get round to making some of these myself, they're so useful.  Would be great for putting Christmas presents into! Smiley
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Re: Love your wedding? Then show off your photos here! on: July 17, 2010 08:17:50 AM
We got married on 22nd May this year, it was a fantastic day.  The wedding was in a Scottish woodland next to a waterfall and the reception in a local hotel.  We crafted lots of different items to try and save some money, I've put some photos below, hope you like our wedding diy!

This is my wedding day jewellery, I also made the bridesmaids and both mums a necklace each.

These are the bridesmaid flowers made of crepe and tissue paper;

This is a sign we made to hang above the door of the folly where we were married;

And a felt heart garland wrapped around the balcony of the folly, overlooking the river;

These are the programs, printed on our computer with a small vial of bubbles attached (we weren't allowed confetti at the site);

We made hundreds of these origami lilies for decoration;

I also made some smaller lilies to make these twig centerpieces for the reception;

Each table at the reception was named after a different native tree, the top table was oak so we made (actually my mum made, as I didn't have time!) the leaf out of felt and attached with florist wire onto a small slice of birch wood.

Each place name was a hand sanded slice of birch wood with their name written on and a picture of their table name;

The cake was designed by us but made by a friend of my mums, two layers chocolate and bottom layer fruit cake;

And finally a photo of us on the balcony of the folly where we were married;

Hope you liked them!

Thanks for looking! Smiley

Thank you Blottedcopybook!

Faycharlotte - I love the idea of the giant ladybird umbrella, I've seen the kids one, but would love a bigger one for myself! Smiley

Here's a site that has good instructions on the origami lilies: http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-lily.html  We made bigger ones to start with and then started on post-it note size squares for the smaller ones for centerpieces.

Argyll is a lovely place for a honeymoon, I love the west coast of Scotland, shame there aren't too many jobs for us over that way or we'd probably be living there now! Smiley

Put photos up of any wedding crafting you do, it would be great to see your ideas! Cheesy

Taramor - Thank you, I hope it will be lovely!

Faycharlotte - Thank you and yes, we're getting married in Perthshire, we're both Scottish, but live about an hour south of where we're getting married.  But it's such a lovely woodland, especially in May!  When are you getting married?  You never know, it might be sunny! Smiley  My fiance decided we had to have the ceremony inside in case it rained, I wanted it outside in the woods, so we compromised and are now having it inside the folly in the woodland.  I've bought red wellies and a polka dot red umbrella though, just in case!

I learnt how to make the origami lilies from various websites online, they're quite easy really.  I used several different sites, as I didn't find one tutorial quite comprehensive enough!  I can probably make them in my sleep now, made hundreds for decoration around the reception site.
