Today we bring you Sarah + Matt’s colorful Chicago wedding. They got ready in their apartment before walking just a few blocks over to Palmer Square Park to say ‘I do’ in a very relaxed and intimate ceremony with friends and family.
Sarah + Matt didn’t want to spend a lot of money on their wedding, so they used a lot of DIY elements to add color and personality without breaking the bank. Sarah made a ton of colorful tissue paper pom-poms, and they made a huge impact on the stage framing the stage where the band played.
Sarah also made tissue paper flowers for the centerpieces. They put them in wine bottles that the collected throughout the year.
Matt is great at graphic design so he created escort cards. He also created sweet note labels for their succulent favors which were planted in cans collected by the couple.
If you’re noticing a piñata theme, it’s because there was one and it was adorable! They had a huge piñata to give away as a prize for their dance contest.
We love all of their personal touches and think this wedding really captured Matt + Sarah as a couple.
We hope you loved Sarah + Matt’s wedding details as much as we do! Let us know what you’d like to recreate in the comments!
