// DIY Summer Wedding//

Summer is the most perfect time of the year for a wedding—I LOVE summer weddings! To kick off this summer, 3D-Memoirs featured a DIY Summer Bridal Shower Inspiration post including some awesome DIY ideas and lovely Wedding Paper Divas eye-candy! (If you missed it, please check it out!) Fast forward a couple months and wow, can you believe that summer is almost over? Before summer becomes fall, I thought I would share some creative ideas and unique concepts for a DIY Summer Wedding!  You are in for a real treat! I can’t take all the credit for this wonderful post, as you will see below I have two wonderful ladies that have contributed to the amazing content in this post!

The color palette that I chose for this DIY Summer Wedding post is SHERBET (like the ice-cream):

Based upon these bright summer colors, Sara from Burnett’s Boards (inspiration for bright-minded brides), was so kind to develop a special Sherbet wedding inspiration board just for this post! After I shared with her that the inspirational vibe for this DIY summer wedding post was "fresh, fun, and romantic using vibrant sherbet colors with a touch of elegance (gold accents)", this is the lovely board that she came up with:

 (Make sure you stop by Sara’s blog, Burnett’s Boards, to check out all of her unique and creative inspiration boards—you will definitely find the wedding inspiration that you are looking for! I am a personal fan of Burnett’s Boards and I am sure you will become one too!)

Based upon this amazing inspiration board, I created 3 DIY items to share with you for a DIY summer wedding. (For the step-by-step DIY instructions, please click on the titles below.)

Wedding Favors

   

Wedding Escort Card

                                          

Wedding Centerpiece

Individual Components

  

Collective Components 

 

In addition to this creative DIY collection, Rebecca from Lady B Paperie, has contributed a lovely and unique sherbet-inspired Botanical DIY Printable Invitation Suite (includes the invitation, RSVP card, insert, & Thank You card)!

How lovely is this invitation suite?! Rebecca is so awesome and loves 3D-Memoirs so much that she is giving our readers a FREE printable DIY “Thank You” card! Before downloading your FREE Thank You card, please make sure to stop by and purchase the rest of this beautiful DIY invitation suite for your wedding!  (Rebecca is so talented, if this style doesn’t fit your wedding theme, stop by Lady B Paperie to check out all of her other beautiful invitation suites—I’m sure you will find a perfect match!)

Is this your first time purchasing a DIY printable invitation suite? If so, no worries! Rebecca has provided easy instructions on how to print these lovely invitations, along with DIY printable tips!

// Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #9 Garlands//

Today’s Guest Blog is by Gail Oliver, author of 663 Must-Have Wedding Ideas

Brides are always looking for easy DIY décor, and garlands are one of the easiest. Also called buntings, garlands have become hot again, but they are being hung in different ways – not simply strung across the ceiling but hung vertically, along the front of the head table, used as backdrops or wrapped around pillars.

Some Materials for DIY Garlands:

  • Photos – engagement photos, pics of the wedding party
  • Vintage fabric
  • Laser cut paper
  • Tassels
  • Beads or jewels
  • Pompoms
  • Paper letters
  • Maps
  • Fabric flowers
Enjoy some of these great ideas for garlands:

Elegant Paper Cut Garlands from Martha Stewart Weddings

White Lace Bunting from Not on the High Street

Paper Roses Garland from Lille Syster on Etsy

Variety of DIY Garlands from a Beautiful Mess

 “Just Married” Wooden Letter Garland from Not on the High Street

Paper Garland from MaraMay on Etsy

// Hot Wedding Trend for 2013: #5 Laser Cuts//

WRITTEN BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, OLIVERINK 

Laser Cuts, which is essentially the cutout of a design, can be seen in everything from fashion to paper goods, and it will be a big trend for weddings in 2013.

Why will laser cuts be popular? Because laser cutting gives the look of lace, which is great for those planning a vintage wedding theme. It also makes more a more stunning design, for an invitation for example, because another material or color can be seen through the cutout design.

Butterfly Laser Cut Wedding Invitation from Etsy

Laser Cut Save the Dates from Etsy

WRITTEN BY GUEST BLOGGER GAIL OLIVER, OLIVERINK 

What will be the hottest wedding hairstyle in 2013? Braids of course.

Look around at the current popular movies and television shows – like Snow White and the Huntsman, The Hunger Games and Games of Thrones – and you’ll see braids everywhere.

There are a variety of ways to wear braids for both the bride and the bridesmaids, not to mention great hair accessories that will accent the style perfectly.
