My entire summer was spent helping my friend Cara plan her wedding.  Im posting this to show how beautiful everything turned out.  Some things were made by me, some things were made by her, and some things were store bought.  I'll let you know which is which as the pictures progress...

Lets start out with the cake, it was made by a friend of her mom's and designed by Cara with cake photos from the internet as her inspiration:

the whole cake table (cara painted the "I DO" letters:

Here is the Bride with all her bridesmaids (I am the one in the orange in on the far right)  her colors were mulberry, persimmon, dark purple, and light green.  each girl had a bouquet opposite the color of her dress the dresses were storebought:

close up of the bride's bouquet,  the bridesmaids bouquets were made the same just in solid colors.  each girl's bouquet had an initial charm on it: (i made the bouquets by the way, cara helped)

Here is the groom with all his groomsmen (my boyfriend is the one in the pink on the far right Smiley)  each guy's tie was opposite his shirt:

and what we loved but her parents hated Cheesy the groomsmen wore flipflops!!

I made the flower girl basket and ring pillow (this pic was taken after the flower girl had carried the basket around all day and the handle started to ravel):

some centerpieces at the reception:

the bridal party table, cara painted the K initial, and i dont have a close up of the place card holders but theyre winecorks and we altered paint samples in the wedding colors as the place cards:

the whole bridal party after marching out, you can really see how pretty the colors are in this pic:

my boyfriend caught the garter!! ha ha here we are:

yeah i know... the whole time we were planning her mom was wrinkling her nose up at the colors she chose... but it ended up turning out really pretty i think.  we paired up the purple with green, and the pink with orange, and did alot of playing with the opposites.  she even had the bridesmaids and groomsmen walk down the aisle together, and the girl in the pink dress walked with the guy in the orange shirt... the purple dress with the green shirt... and so on... i looked really neat...

and the little balls in the vases were these little foam balls... they sell them at Hobby Lobby.  Actually i just remembered i have a pic of them that i took with my cell phone in the store when we were trying to decide on center pieces:

(I just went to a DIY wedding the other week, and one of the groomsmen wore flipflops, too, lol...I took a pic, but didn't end up using it in my blog post..I thought it was hilarious, though! Tongue )
