Well heeelloooooooo there!

We've had a CAH-RAAAYYYY- ZZZZYYY September!  Between back to school routines, and birthdays, and weddings, we've been SUPER busy!!  We were invited to 2 weddings, back to back weekends - and I'm POOPED!  It was so nice this past weekend not to have to get all gussied up ;0).

Anyway - for the first wedding (on Sept. 21) I thought I would share some of the things I helped the bride with -- They held their wedding in their back yard, it was rustic, elegant, and comfortable.  I loved how nice it was, though it wasn't a great weather day.

For the guests, everyone got a mason jar mug with a handle to drink from, which also served as their seating arrangement.

The bride's friend made this great sign!
Here are the mugs:
I used my Cricut to cut out the chalkboard labels.  Then 3 of us put the labels on all of the jars, and I wrote the names on allllllllll of the jars, while the other 2 cranked out a WHOLE LOTTA TAGS and a BAJILLION little numbers for the tags, it was a lot of effort, but I think they came out great!  (Yes, the jars are wet, because it was POURING, and blowing in under the tent!

Here are the centerpieces, She cut each and every wine bottle, and I made the table numbers.  They are in the shape of the plate on the front of a motocross bike, as that is one of the groom's favorite things to do.  We used a popular 'racing font' for the numbers -- I made these with my Cricut and Sure Cuts A Lot (I haven't updated my machine, or the software, so I can still use it! yaaaaayyyy lol).

Here's one of my favorite photos I took that day...I had NOTHING to do with this one, but wanted to point out that the flower in the bride's hair was made from her Mom's wedding dress, how cool is that?

Oh - and I did make them a card... just in case you were thinking I didn't, lol.  The girls' dresses were a teal green - more to the green side, but I didn't have anything closer than hawaiian shores, so...

This card was cased from this beauty by Gayatri Murali.  I used PTI's Quatrefoil Cover Plate die to emboss the hawaiian shores layer - and accented it with flat back crystals.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies.  I loved the design so much, I incorporated it into the card for the other wedding as well.

I'll be back with some photos of wedding number 2 a little later this week :).

Thanks for stopping by!!!
