Crafting a Wedding from Scratch
As you guys probably already know, my sister and I had a blast rounding up the necessary materials and crafting our way through her checklist of items needed for her wedding. Those of you who know us most likely know how “resourceful” we are… which is a euphemism for “cheap”. Many of the materials we collected were either sourced from local thrift stores- the cut glass vases and wooden window frame- or found abandoned by the side of the street- a cupboard which we sanded, primed, painted and then used for the guest book table and a mirror which was used as a menu display. To quote one of our favorite Saturday Night Live episodes: “it’s not trash if it’s new to you!”
Why waste hard-earned money on an already finished product, when you can bond over finding and creating something just as great together? That’s our mentality at least.
I know I gave you guys a little sneak peak of the “workspace” that was used for all of our glass-breaking, wood priming, and spray-painting, but I haven’t shown you any of the finished products yet.
For the finishing touch, Eva displayed the chalkboard menu on an old easel from her late father-in-law.
Not only did the menu items look great on the chalkboard, they tasted great in real life too!
Have a great day, and I’ll see you tomorrow! :)
