Think of White table cloths, (not sure what type of napkins) and red and aqua ribbons all over the table- I saw this ribbon in the new issue of Martha Stewart Weddings (ok i'm obsessed) and thought this super simple ideas was perfect for a table design on a budget! Look at how cute it is! Just put the ribbons on the table in any sort of basket weave pattern, and you have a great table!

I love looking over the endless amounts of sample invitations and other paper products that are available on-line. Since our invites will be done by pretty paper trail, I have been searching high and low for inspiration for our design!
Some great paper products I love are:
(note alot of these were collected so long ago that I do not have the source- I am sorry! E-mail me and I would love to provide credit if you know the source)

I know that it is not a fun topic, or one that you want to talk about when you are working on other fun things, like flowers, and candy bars. But it is one that is ever present in my and Mr DIY's mind. Since we are paying for the entire wedding ourselves (yes- you heard that right) the word Budget has been constantly in our mind every since the wedding planning process began.

I love looking at pictures of table tops. There are so many different things you can do, to make your very own table top unique! I know for our wedding I want to have long tables, instead of round tables. I think this gives the wedding more of a comfy,cozy,family type feel-which is exactly what we are going for! There are some great table top ideas out there- and I have been collecting many of them! I know that I will use our cluster of aqua mason jars with the red flowers, as I posted about earlier here
But I also want to include other items in our color scheme, and make our table top unique. Here are some tabletops I love- even though some aren't necessary in our colors

Here are some favorite inspiration pics that I love! All of course using red flowers (using our red and blu-ish color theme)
Here are some favs! I also love using mason jars (as you can see from past posts) and I love the multi color bouquet below (even though it doesn't match)
I have been thinking recently about all of the possibilities that a Gocco could bring to my life. The possibilities are endless! From cards, to pictures to everything wedding- there is so much I could do! From everyone I have talked to about the Gocco it seems super easy to use- The Gocco is virtually impossible to find- unless you find someone selling them- which I have. So it comes down to- should I buy the Gocco or not? Would I really use it as much as I think I would, or would it just sit in my wedding corner- Have you used a Gocco? If so share what you have done!

As I started digging through photos of wedding hair that I envied, I noticed they all had a theme, long-flowy-ish (yes that is a word) and a little natural looking. I am not a fan of things that are too tight, and perfect (incdluing my hair)
