Today’s bride, Sarah, offered up a piece of great wedding planning advice that I think all the newly engaged should take to heart, “Enjoy it! Start early, and don’t rush the decision making process. Make sure it’s exactly what you want.” So often brides can get caught up in having to do 568 different things, and you can lose the forest for the trees. The process is all about planning a great day for family and friends, and getting closer to your partner – even if you want to occasionally throw flowers at their head.
Sarah and Andrew went all out with the DIY elements of their wedding – invitations, centerpieces of dried flowers and frosted mason jars, making wine charms for favors (super cute!), and seating charts. When you make the decision to create elements of your wedding on your own, time is your best friend. It allows you to make decisions, then make them again, and be sure your end result is what you want – truly an extension of you and your partner.

LOVE Sarah and Andrew’s style! From the beer koozies right down to the pistol cufflinks. This looks like one western style wedding we would loved to have crashed. Best of luck to the newlyweds, and keep up the good work DYI. You guys kill it!
