Wedding: The Details

I know I missed a day, life got in the way and I wasn't able to blog yesterday. However, I'm making up for it and doing 2 posts today!!! 

This one is all about the details. They are honestly one of my favorite parts of a wedding. I love looking at all the little stuff that the bride put so much effort into just to make her day perfect and a lot of people don't give them enough attention. I know when planning, most brides look all over for inspiration, which is why I wanted to share all my details. The flowers and decor were all important to me and everything you see {except the flowers} was all DIY.  I spent plenty of nights up late {with the help of some wonderful people} crafting and making everything perfect. Everything turned out better then I expected and looked fantastic!

 The Flowers

 My something blue that my mom found for me :) I was  {and still am} completely in love with my bouquet. It was absolutely perfect!!

 Bridesmaid's bouquet

All of the guys boutonnieres were some form of the grooms. His was all white with a yellow ribbon and the groomsman's were yellow flowers with a grey ribbon. 

 The mother's corsages 

The Ceremony

For the ceremony we kept it simple. A little aisle decor {no runner allowed}, simple programs and our unity candle. 

 You can't see it in the picture but our unity candle has almost a lace detailing on it. I purchased it, the tapers and the glass stands all from Hobby Lobby for about $10.

The Reception

{Not Pictured: our private covered patio was decorated with string lights & glowing yellow and grey round lanterns}

Card Box- Supplies all from Hobby Lobby

 Our cake was from Vande Walles Candy. Each tier was a different flavor and we decided to not do fondant & just did buttercream.

 We had 3 different centerpieces on our tables: a cylinder filled with lemons & a floating candle, White football mums, yellow tulips & sliced lemons, and yellow football mums, white tulips & river rock. We had a grey table runner on each table along with the table numbers and votive candles.

Table number frames: Ikea (purchased from a bride on Wedding Bee) 
Votives & Holders: Purchased from a bride on Wedding Bee
Personalized votive wraps:

 The escort card display was made from a vintage frame {not pictured}, foam board, fabric and ribbon. It was something I saw on and I loved it! All of the escort cards, table numbers, programs & displays were printed at home by me!

 We had a few interesting "words of wisdom" from a few guests of the restaurant located in  the same building as our room.

Our guest "tree". Something I saw on etsy and loved. It was different then the traditional book and is something I will enjoy displaying in my home for years to come.

This Girl

Some of you may recognize her. This is Whit {BlackLittleButton}, she is amazing and a big detail that needs to be mentioned. There is no way our wedding day would have gone as smoothly as it did without her. She was my personal attendent and she went way above and beyond what I expected. She designed our invitations, the guest tree above, helped me with a few DIY projects, and ran around like a crazy person all day making sure everything was perfect and set up exactly how it was supposed to be. She even had a big bag of everything...literally EVERYTHING that anyone could possibly need. A few of our guests even went to her for something. I adore her and there is not enough thanks in the world for what she did for us.
