      Thank you from my sister, FemmeFrugality! They look super cute and she did such a nice a job. The homemade angle really adds a nice touch and she can use those supplies over and over. Maybe she’ll use them for a baby announcement someday even ;)

    This is anecdotal–but it seems to me that people who have simple weddings end up more happily married! Sometimes I think that young couples (especially brides) are more focused on the “perfect wedding” than on building a future together. Wishing you the best.

      Kris, my mom has a similar theory to this line of thinking! I think there is something to it…;)
      There is something to be said for focusing on getting married rather just the wedding itself. Simple really helps keep the focus where it should be.
      Thanks, Kris!

    There is something about doing little things for your won wedding that makes it forever special – much much more than expensive locales and fancy dresses. Loved the post. Wishing your sister all the best and a very happy married life.

      Minnie, you are so right! What nice wishes for my sister, too. She’s so sweet and married a super nice guy. He’s always the first one to laugh at himself, which is a great trait to have.
      Thanks for leaving a comment, Minnie!

    Thanks for sharing this! We are looking for ideas to make something different. It would be much easier (and expensive) to give up and make a “regular” wedding… but the “creative” way is much more interesting.
