What do you think of wedding shoe lettering? This photo of groom shoes lettering is our photo of the day. I’ve never seen shoe lettering yet that’s made me cringe and I think this “She’s Mine” lettering is pretty adorable! This wedding detail photo was captured by Echard from Echard Wheeler Photography.

5 Easy DIY Wedding Favors
Weddingstar (who celebrates their 30th anniversary this year) offers many fun, unique DIY wedding favor ideas. Instead of catering to one theme or skill level, there’s a little something for everyone (from novice to amateur DIY crafter). We tried our hand at a few of our favorite DIY wedding favors from their site; see what we’ve created below!
DIY Wedding Favors: #1
DIY Cupcake Bell Jar Favors
If you love cupcakes, you’ll really love this wedding favor idea! We created DIY miniature cupcake favors for guests housed under these charming little glass bell jars. A personalized tag sweeps across the front of the jar and adheres in the back. This DIY is perfect for a wedding favor or bridal shower favor. We used miniature cup cakes because we felt they looked best under the bell jars, as well as won’t upstage your wedding cake. We also piped frosting on the top to look like roses.
1. First, bake your cupcakes and allow to cool. Use an ice cream scoop to place the cupcakes into the liners (it works great!) Pipe them with icing to create a ‘rose’ like effect. It’s easy: just start at the center and work your way around in a circular pattern using the decorating tip on the icing.
2. Keep cupcakes in the refrigerator until you’re ready to display them. This will keep frosting from melting.
3. Wrap your ribbon tags around the bell jar and adhere with clear sticker dots (they are included with the ribbons free of charge). Place cupcake on fluted base and place bell jar on top.

DIY Skeleton Key Bottle Opener
This DIY is perfect for a vintage wedding! Not only is it charming but it’s functional, too!
3. Place key on folded ribbon, loop through the hole of the tag (reverse side up), pull the ribbon ends through the loop, and pull to create a knot.

DIY Cherry Pies in a Box
These miniature pie box favors are perfect for a rustic, homespun wedding (and one of the cutest ideas we’ve seen yet!) And, they’re extremely easy to assemble.
– Miniature pies (buy ’em or save money + bake them with this) – “Sweetie Pies” Mini Pie Packaging Kit (includes everything you need to make 20 individual pie box favors: pie boxes, wax liners, pre-cut bakers twine, and gift tags – Hole punch (like this)
1. Once you’ve baked your pies – and allowed them to cool – assemble a pie box. Simply fold on the lines to form your box, remove the adhesive stickers to attach box sides, and press firmly.
2. Fold your wax liner in half and place lengthwise across the newly formed box. Place a pie on the liner and close the box.
3. Use a hole punch to make a hole on one end of the tag. Tie bakers twine to the tag and use the ends to wrap around the box. We recommend tying a secure knot and bow with the twine to ensure the box stays closed.

If you love coffee (or you’re planning a coffee themed wedding), this is a perfect wedding favor for you! These small espresso-like cups and saucers are cute on their own; add oomph with decorative muslin bags, custom stickers, and whole bean coffee. YUM!
3. Tie bag with drawstring; display with cup and saucer set.

2. Fill tin with filler of your choice (think tea, coffee, candy, or mints).
3. Close lid securely.

Hello, loves! Happy Friday! If you are planning DIY wedding projects for your big day, there are a few secrets to help it go off without a hitch. Today, we’ve compiled five of our favorite DIY weddings secrets that every bride should know to save you a headache down the road. DIY wedding projects can be fun, but they can also be overwhelming, too. And, since holiday break may be an excellent time to get crafting, we are also sharing some of our favorite DIY wedding kits to inspire you. Reveal what you need to know after the jump!
5 DIY Wedding Secrets Every Bride Should Know
1. Know when to DIY – and when to buy.
What’s your DIY skill level? Are you skilled at painting or more sewing inclined? Find your strong suit and complete a project that ties into it. One example of a painting project you may want to undertake could be a DIY wedding cake topper, like this kit by Goose Grease. It comes with paints and wooden dolls so you can give it a go:
However, if your painting skills aren’t up to par – and you have a specific look in mind – it may be better to have a custom topper made. (This one is also by Goose Grease.)
2. Know WHERE to buy (+ how to save money).
It’s also important to know where to buy your DIY wedding supplies. Yesterday, we talked about mason jar mistakes to avoid and how buying in bulk can save you money. This also applies to any supply item you can think of, as long as you’re sure it’s the item you want (or you’ll have a headache trying to return and find the right item). One place you can order online is Amazon, which offers any craft item you can think of (and many in bulk). I’ve purchased these muslin spice bags in a pack of 100 and stamped them to make my own favors. I’ve also ordered mason jars in bulk to save money – and avoid the hassle of lugging 50+ mason jars home. You can also check Hobby Lobby online (their online store is amazing) to place an order or see what’s in store; then, print the 40% off coupon and bring it with you to buy. Look for coupons from Michaels and JoAnn to save you money, too, and make an effort to buy items only when you have a coupon.
If you’re looking for handmade details, check out The Marketplace to snag tags, envelope seals, blank place cards, and more. For instance, round scalloped paper tags from The Kraft Room can be an excellent canvas onto which you can print guests’ names, attach to twine with clothespins, and use as an escort card display at your wedding.
Or, add a custom detail to your favors with kraft bunting stickers (also from The Kraft Room):
Some artisans are willing to share their craft with you in a DIY wedding kit. One example is The Crimson Poppy who makes a DIY paper flower kit you can make at home.
And, here’s the result:
3. Pace yourself.
It goes without saying that even if you want to DIY every aspect of your wedding, you need to pace yourself. Give yourself plenty of time to buy supplies, create your crafting space, and complete projects before moving onto the next one. Few things would be more stressful than waiting until a few days before the wedding to complete a dozen crafts. And, the crafts should be fun – not stressful!
4. Call in your crew to help.
Don’t go at it alone! Your crew – you know, fiance, MOH, bridesmaids, mom – are there to support and help you. Just ask! I’m sure if they’re special enough to be in your wedding, they’re nice enough to lend a hand. But, they can’t help if you don’t ask – so, ask, ask away! (And reward them with plenty of food, drinks, and make it fun.)
5. If you don’t like it, scrap it.
Last but not least, if you work on a DIY wedding craft and it’s not going as planned (which will undoubtedly happen), scrap it. Start over. Or, move onto something else. If you don’t like how something looks, don’t settle because you spent time on it; move on and craft something you’ll love and of which you’ll be proud.
