    DIY Mr & Mrs Wedding Signs

    Mr & Mrs signs are still really popular at weddings. They're a great way to incorporate your theme and colour scheme and a creative way to accompany your candy buffet.

    I used paper mache letters and painted them. Once the paint was dry, I decorated them with various embelishments, papers and sentiments.  They're really fun to make and inexpensive too!

    So I've been having a search for some more free printables - there are so many out there to choose from and it really takes the hard work out of some of the DIY planning!

    So here goes...

    Cards and Pockets have lots of templates to choose from - choose your card, open the template, customise then export - then they are ready to print!

    Photo Booth - photo booths are really popular at wedding receptions and they're great for capturing memories!! This great template is from Wedding Chicks - they have some fab stuff on their blog!

    I love these striking, unusual templates. These could be used for a variety of your wedding DIY projects. Another fab template from Martha Stewart Wedding!

    Free Scrabble Letters! Ok so they don't look so great on their own but imagine how these could be integrated into your wedding theme and for use on wedding stationary or even signs for the reception...

    Custom Wedding Stationary

    If you don't have the time to make your wedding stationary 100% handmade, why not order some printed invitations and then customise them to match your theme?

    Zazzle have a great range of custom wedding stationary in 8 sizes and 5 paper types. What's better, they are produced in 24 hours!

    These beautiful Autumn themed invitations would look effective with some delicate touches of gold glitter and a couple of gold bows. The possibilities are endless! Why not add a finishing touch of a personalised postage stamp :-)

    They are made from jute/hessian with sturdy handles and a pocket on the front of the bag which holds a personalise message, picture or piece of artwork. Simply fill them with sweets and there you have it!

    Back after a long time away from blogging!

    I hold my hands up to neglecting this blog! After having a baby, being back to work and generally being very busy, I've not had time to blog regularily but as I was one of 200 blogs to be contacted by to enter their competition 'Room for Improvement'  it has motivated me to get my backside into gear and get stuck into some creativity as well as giving my bathroom some much needed attention!
    Ok, so this isnt strictly wedding related but its due me being contacted via this blog, that has got me thinking I need to start blogging again!

    The mirror idea could be adapted for a wedding DIY project if you were wanting something a little different.

    The wood panelling was painted with white gloss to help brighten the room and complement the light green walls. I found some off cuts of voile at 50p each to use for the windows. I then made some tiebacks by stitching glass beads to green ribbon.

    My Father in Law cut out the letters ‘SOAK’ from some off cuts of wood, which I painted and decorated with some left over craft supplies. These were then stuck to the self-adhesive mirror tiles before sticking onto the wall.
    To continue with the green and white theme, I purchased a green toothbrush holder and soap dispenser. I also replaced the beige shower curtain with a green and white shower curtain to help really freshen up the room.
    My husband cleaned up the grouting with a dremel multi-tool to freshen up the look of the tiles.
    I used some candle holders for the green candles, from another room to help make the finishing touches.

    We purchased the following items to make the improvements:







    Mirror tiles



    Light pull


    shower curtain


    toothbrush holder


    soap dispenser






    loo roll holder




    Green candles




    We’re really pleased with our new fresh looking bathroom! The bright colours really help open up the room. It’s surprising how far £50 can go to really improve the look of a room!



    We look forward to hearing from MoneySupermarket to find out how we have got on!!

    Keep your eyes peeled for more (wedding related!) posts coming soon :-)
