Call Me The DiY Bride

Hey y'all!  Two thumbs up for it being Wednesday!

Since 2013 has decided to grace us with it's presence, all things Yancey Wedding have been in FULL swing!  Thankfully I have The Knot, my BFF & Maid of Honor, Matt & a handful of other wonderful family & friends to help me out & keep me on track!

After shopping 'til we dropped in Canton a few weekends ago, my BFF/MOH & I got to crafting that Saturday night.  First we painted some wooden letters....
Green & White are our wedding colors....
The green letters spell out my (soon-to-be) last name
& the white letters are for wreaths that will be hung at the reception

We then moved onto making the boutonnieres that all of the guys will wear.
OF COURSE I miscounted the amount of supplies we needed & so we were only able to get about half way done.  Luckily Hobby Lobby is only closed on Sunday's & I was able to get what I needed the following week.  I finished the boutonnieres this last weekend & I have to say that I'm really proud of how they turned out!
*I'm only showing part of the boutonniere to save the big reveal for the big day!  But, I promise it will all be fully revealed after the big day!*

If you've searched Pinterest at all you might have an idea where I'm going with these!  :)

Neither Matt or I were crazy about the original suit option that I had chosen once we got to the store & he tried it on.  After searching & searching we both finally agreed on something that we liked!  Yippeee!!!  Monday night we went to try on the ensemble & we have a winner!
Figuring out guys attire = CHECK!

The last time I posted about wedding stuff we were just a little under 150 days until the BIG DAY!

technically 108 days if you're reading this on Wednesday... but, who's counting really?

For real, I looked at that number today & my heart skipped a couple of beats!
I'm beginning to feel so many emotions (when do I not?) & it's all SO exciting!

There's a lot happening in the coming weeks & I can't wait to share it with y'all!

Are you or will you be the DiY Bride type??

Happy Wedding Wednesday y'all!!!


  1. Totally the DIY bride type! I just haven't quite started! :)

  2. I SO wish I had Pinterest when we got married 4.5 years ago. I can tell you my wedding would have been a lot different!

  3. I swear, every time I try and make a craft I forget something or another and have to make a last minute run to the store. The boutonnieres are going to look so good!

  4. I am so impressed with your DIY skills! Where were all of these cute DIY things when I got married!?
