Elizabeth recently submitted her Dessy bridesmaid real wedding images to Dessy.com to receive her free, and I must say, cool, tote bag. I immediately fell in love with she and her husband Christopher's Wisconsin wedding. It is chock full of awesome DIY elements and their sunflower and black color scheme is so gorgeous!
Elizabeth told me the story of finding the perfect bridesmaid dresses at Dessy. "Each of my bridesmaids picked out a dress in Sunflower with a black accent and I absolutely love the way it turned out. I felt great knowing that they were each comfortable and looked great in the style of dress they picked out."
And those DIY elements I fell for? She explained "As for the decorating and all of the details, I made most everything. The fabric flowers were our table decorations, as well as what made up each girl's bouquet. I also made the bridesmaids' jewelry. The favors were honey and maple syrup jars which were produced locally by the groom and his father. Our guest book was squares of fabric for the guests to sign, which I will make into a quilt."
This creative duo also customized their wedding treats. Instead of a cake they created their own dessert buffet from two local vendors-Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Cher's Cookie Box. From chocolate dipped pineapple to earl grey cookies, there were only crumbs left by the end of the day.
I want to thank Elizabeth and Christopher for sharing their big day and helping to inspire others. A huge congratulations to you both!
