Last fall was a blur for me: taking our oldest son to college and preparing for our daughter’s wedding. Lots of emotions and crafting and planning and doing. After the wedding I was just plain tired! Now that I’ve recouped (okay, maybe it didn’t take me almost a year) I wanted to share some of the crafty details of the wedding. This was before my daughter, niece and I joined Pinterest and it was probably a good thing! We would have been up to our eyeballs in projects and not enough time ! As it was, we stretched the budget and the day was amazing.
We wanted a way for wedding guests to put cards (and monetary gifts) in one location. Rachel originally wanted to use a mail box (and I got one free off Freecycle), but she changed her mind. After searching the internet I found many ways to display money and cards, including: a picture frame idea, a wedding cake box, a bird cage holder and a glass wedding card box.
This would be a great idea for any party or special event where you need a centralized location for gifts and cards.
Any of you moms (or brides) out there looking for wedding ideas? What are your biggest obstacles to the wedding of your dreams?
