DIY Floating Canopy For Your Wedding

Photo and directions from Home Interior Ideas
Looking for a unique way to mark your wedding location in your local park or back yard? Why not try this canopy that floats courtesy of multiple balloons. How do you do it? The balloons are attached to the grounds using fishing line, invisible but strong. How cool is this? I think this is one of my favorite do it yourself outdoor wedding ideas.
Arrange your ceremony under one end, your reception at the other, or use one half the canopy for your ceremony and chairs for your guests to relax on, and the other half for the reception. No matter how you decide to arrange the details the overall look is striking.

Sealed With A Kiss? Nope, A Label.

Mail details courtesy of I Still Love You
Do you love those little details but don't have the time or skill to add them yourself? Or you lack the calligraphy skills to do these by hand? Melissa Esplin from I Still Love You has figured out a quick and easy way to use your printer and Avery Labels to let you give your invitations a classic look. Not only that she provides you with a free download on her site. So head over there now and see just how simple this is.
I tested this on my husband Bill (of (EEEBCDI) Easy Enough Even Bill Can Do It fame.) For new readers, my husband tests my DIY projects to see just how easy they are to do. He's not at all crafty and not graphically inclined. It's a good thing I only had a couple of sheets of clear labels left or he would still be in there printing these! He loves an easy project. So if he can do it, you can too, or your fiance can. No more waffling out of pre-wedding projects by saying 'it's too hard.' This one is EEEBCDI, so if Bill can do it he can do it too!

Spell Out Your Love With DIY Love Blocks

If you are planning a romantic centerpiece, Six Sisters Stuff has a great tutorial on how to make these 'Love Blocks.' Depending on how you size them you can use them at each place setting or as part of a centerpiece. Combine with some votives in similar colors and you're ready to rock!
I love the variety of black and white backgrounds with the bright red accents, use them for a Valentine's Day wedding or any wedding that black, red and white accents will coordinate with. No doing those colors? Just change out the colors to some that work with  your wedding theme colors.
