Our wedding photos are back and they are amazing. But of course, I’m biased. Here are all the details that made up the decor on our wedding day!
Wedding Welcome Sign – here’s a link to the DIY post I shared on learning how to make these boards!
Instead of a guest list, we wanted to ask our guests to write down messages to read on our first anniversary.
In addition to the anniversary messages, I printed out a sign and rented a bucket for guests to give us our summer and winter bucket list ideas! We placed this beside the card box which I rented from my florist! The gifts & cards sign was the first wooden board I made. You can also see on the right of the below picture coffee bags as wedding favors. I also had a sign printed that read “Something old, something new, something borrowed, something brewed!”
I asked both sets of parents for wedding photos of their day and of our grandparents. We printed them off using Shoppers Drug Mart’s services and grabbed frames form Winners. In addition, my mom has been collecting antique bottles over the years so you can see them scattered all over the welcome table with white flowers.
Just inside the front doors of the venue is a beautiful old sideboard which we used for the cake and the cupcakes. I had a sign printed that read “All You Need is Love & a Cupcake”. Mike’s mom made vegan, gluten-free cupcakes and they were an amazing hit. We used my grandmother’s (my mom’s mom) cake stand which I was gifted many years ago after she passed, my turkey serving platter (all about repurposing) and then Mike’s mom bought 2 cupcake stands. They were a big hit and definitely all disappeared even before we cut the cake.
I purchased the cake topper on Etsy and our florist added flowers for an extra touch.
Last but not least, was the Table Seating Chart (which was also a DIY blog post) leaning up against a wall at the end of the Welcome Tables which a branch of Eucalyptus to spruce it up.
I made 2 other wooden boards for the ceremony area and rented easels from Rustic Rentals. Instead of programs that no one really cares to read or keep (except maybe your grandmother) I made a fun board letting everyone know the main purpose of why we were gathered (to party) and a Sit Where Your Heart Desires sign and a notice that the ceremony would be unplugged because I’m a fan of ceremony pictures where you don’t see all the guests with phones up in the air.
For reserved seating signs I had made little tags to hang on the back of chairs. We were supposed to be outside in the garden area so our direct family would have been on wooden chairs as well. Because it rained in the morning they set the ceremony up inside the white tent and gave our family really comfy couches. My wedding planner simply leaned them up against the pillows which looked nice.
Behind this row, we set up picture frames of our grandparents that have passed.
The stunner in the white tent was a huge Love Marquis sign. While it looked great during the day, the bottom of the E didn’t light up. We should have tested it before leaving the rental company but in the end
We used the tables, chair & linens from Evermore.
I rented wooden table numbers from Lux Event Rentals. And our florist used Eucalyptus and Italian Ruscus for our greenery garlands. Evermore
I designed the Menu using Canva and had them printed them with Vistaprint. I had the place cards printed with Minted.com and Mike and I made the wooden place card holders. It was a lot of sanding one weekend and my hand definitely did not enjoy that task.
Evermore has a beautiful banner hanging on one wall of the barn that is just stunning. I also asked them to place the other candles around the barn on the outside walls for lighting that you can see in the picture below.
Also we can’t forget how amazing the chandeliers are at this venue. The simplicity and elegance of this venue was everything I wanted.
I made the Dance Floor Rules sign inspired by a board I saw on Pinterest and my mom supplied the wicker basket and flip flops we had purchased from Old Navy.
Last but not least, I borrowed a small Bar Marquis sign from Jenny (Mike’s Best Man – Darren’s Wife) for the bar top. It light up the night and could be seen by all our party friends who could be found here (or the dance floor) for the remainder of the night.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the details of our day. A lot of Pinterest scrolling, planning, making, renting and purchasing went it so it’s nice to have a way to remember it all here on the blog!
