Each girl got matching pearl earrings and necklace before the wedding. Contacted a local artist and together handpicked each pearl and created each necklace to be different from the others. Placed the gifts inside of an oyster shell, as these girls are my pearls. Family Gifts, Local Artists, These Girls, Groomsmen, Dyi, Shell, Pearl Earrings, Rose Gold, Bridesmaid

I never got to meet my husband's grandfather and he never got to meet my grandmother. Both were huge inspirations in our lives so we both decided to place their photos within our ceremony as tribute to them. My husband also lost two of his cousins tragically the same year before we got married. My Grandmother, Cousins, Got Married, Dyi, Husband, Lost, Photos, Wedding, Inspiration

My husband and I put our favourite books on each table along with a "living" plant book. We thought this could be a way for people to "break the ice" and talk about mutual books or other things as a way to introduce themselves to one another :) Inspire Others, Dyi, Succulents, Husband, Table, Books, People, Plants, Wedding

Each Groomsman had a paper flower hand made by me. The flowers were pages from books and poetry that I grew up with and really impacted me. Paired with lavender (to match the girls) and wrapped together with twine Twine, Groomsmen, Paper Flowers, Dyi, Lavender, Poetry, Girls, Books, Handmade

We got two pieces of rope and tied them together as part of our ceremony and our vows to one another. We had our fathers bring the ropes to us. Ropes, Fathers, Dyi, Bring It On, Wedding, Inspiration, Casamento, Biblical Inspiration, Dads
