My Wedding Decoration Ideas

Thanks to Pinterest! 

Literally every idea came from something I saw on Pinterest and it was definitely very successful. Thus I made this wedding section...it's so fun to look at ideas!

 First of all, we can start with the boots. The cowboy boot/wedding dress seems to be a super popular look this year, and even though these are my nice dress boots, I figured they could use a little dressing up! Thanks to my mother's jewelry making abilities, she put together some really cute bling for my boots. 

These were all found at Joann's craft     stores- she looped the chains with the jewel around the top of my boot and made elastic "bracelets" for around the ankles. Just remember to make them a little longer than the circumference of the boot because it will expand when you put your foot in and take a step.

 Our center pieces were relatively simple (I did another post on the flowers themselves) but the mason jars hold a few river stones with some floating candles. The linens were provided by the venue, but my mother also made these burlap table runners (they have lace on the end that she put on with a hot glue gun) These were all found at Hobby Lobby.

The head table was set up very simply. I didn't put any flowers on the table because I thought it might feel like we were hiding behind them so I just had candles and river rock. The burlap garland, as well as the Mr. and Mrs. signs, were all from Hobby Lobby as well. (Everything can come from Hob Lob!)

At the end off each row we had shepherd's hooks down the aisle with baby's breath. The flowers came from Costco at a very reasonable price (these ones are real) although once I started looking for shepherd's hook I had surprisingly difficult time finding them! I think they ended up coming from WalMart? 

Our cake was pretty much the most delicious thing ever! We used the Bundt Shoppe in Littleton, CO. They have the most amazing bundt cakes and a variety of decorations.

We had a larger cake (lemon raspberry and chocolate) for the bridal party) and then smaller "bitty bundts" with a variety of flavors for the guests.

The venue had this very interesting dresser that we used as a cake stand. I thought it helped add to that rustic feel! 

For the individual flavor cards I glued together some cardstock and used chalkboard stickers for the label. 

Weddings are super boring for little kids and we wanted both them and their parents to be able to have fun. At the kids table we activities like coloring books, bubbles, etc. and also had a S'more station around the fire pit!

Instead of printing out programs for everyone (trying to cut on costs) we went with this rustic and beautiful chalk board. We listed who everybody was, as well as the schedule of events. The chalkboard was about 50 dollars (from...guess where! Hobby Lobby!) But I of course used my coupon on it and it helped save a lot. It cut back on paper expenses and left us a very nice wall hanging post wedding =)

And then of course...the star of the show! Riko my right hand man and sweetest dog in the world was, of course, our ring bearer. His little chalk board sign was only a few dollars and I used chalk board paint. We tied the ribbon around his neck and then put our rings in a little pouch that was tied to the ribbon.
