Hello all! Had a great week with my sister in town….lots of cleaning, watching chick flicks, and drinking wine 🙂 Good times! Had some time to my self in my newly cleaned craft room and got to some projects I’ve been wanting to do!
On an exciting note, my best friend and neighbor Eliza asked me to be her bridesmaid this weekend!! I did not at all expect it since she is having a small destination wedding in Mexico but I am psyched! To start of my role as bridesmaid right, I decided to make her a personalized wedding planner. My sister-in-law bought me the mega-one with wedding rules, bridal advice, and folders so I used it as a guide to make one for Eliza.
I started by ripping inspiration from Martha Stewart’s wedding catalog…..basically anything that I thought would “go” in her wedding. Then I used my Cricut to cut out some fun decor for the outside of the binder. The binder is a 2″ 3-ring binder with the plastic sheaths to place covers on the back and front.
Then within each topic I punched holes in pictures from wedding magazines that matched her colors and theme. Much easier than searching through bridal mags over and over. When I was wedding planning I would rip out all the pages I liked first look through and throw them in my book!
There it is, the wedding book! If you are a bridesmaid or know a newly engaged friend this is the PERFECT gift to get them started on the planning process and make them feel special 🙂 So easy and so fun!
Congrats Eliza 🙂
