This past weekend I was a part of the wedding of two of my great friends, Meredith and Scott. It was one crazy weekend with the Bridal Luncheon, Rehearsal, and Rehearsal Dinner on Friday and then Saturday was filled with preparation and wedding day celebrations. Meredith and Scott filled their wedding with so many personal touches that really made their wedding their own.
On Friday the rehearsal dinner was at The Boathouse at Rocketts Landing. This place was one that the bride & groom along with all their friends loved to go to while they attended Law School at the University of Richmond the past 3 years. To go along with the evening they had the most adorable koozies for everyone to use that night and at the wedding if they wanted to. When it comes to selecting favors for your guests koozies are always a hit with all the guests.
After all the fun on Friday evening we were ready for the wedding day on Saturday. For our bridesmaid gift the bride got each of us a button down shirt, with our initials monogrammed on the pocket in our favorite color. That morning I also created this sign that the ring bearer carried down the aisle. This was an easy craft that I put together using a wooden board from the craft store and acrylic paint in the wedding color. Here is the sign with the bride's flower bouquet.
The bride and groom selected an amazing cake for their wedding. They kept it simple with classic white on white decoration for this formal affair. However, they did incorporate their wedding color of navy with a simple wrap around bow and a family heirloom brooch. The bridal bouquet also had a brooch added to it that had belonged to the bride's grandmother. Simple touches like these allow those family members who were not able to be at the wedding to be remembered during a wedding day. Prior to the toasts they also had pictures from each of the bride and groom's parents weddings.
Another creative touch that they decided to add to the wedding was the exit ribbons. They used the wedding colors of navy and green to create the ribbon wands that the guests waved when the bride and groom were exiting. These are a simple craft that you can create with ribbon and dowels. The great thing about these ribbons are they are easy to customize for your our wedding.
This wedding was so much fun and I could not be happier for these two. Tomorrow they will be off to celebrate on their honeymoon and I wish them the best of luck on their marriage!! What personal touch was your favorite in this wedding?
