DIY: Escort Cards

This time last year, I was busy planning my wedding and the million details that go along with planning the happiest day of your life... I signed myself up to all the wedding websites you could think of! The Knot's wedding check list was my best friend -- even though we'd get into many fights due to the never ending list that continued even after the wedding day! I also signed up for BridalTweet to get wedding ideas & just to see what was new in the wedding community... Wednesdays were deemed "Wedding Wednesdays" and people would tweet wedding pictures, flowers, and anything wedding related they wanted to share...

To join the "Wedding Wednesday" fun, I did a couple of DIY posts on wedding projects I made for my wedding... sadly, my Gemini trait got the best of me -- and it became another unfinished project... BUT, it's never too late -- right? So, I wanted to revive this idea and simply call it "DIY Wednesday" -- to not only share wedding ideas, but any DIY projects I happen to do at home...

Earlier, I shared my DIY wedding invitations HERE:

Then my DIY unity candles HERE:

Now, here's a look at one of my favorite wedding detail we made ourselves -- Mini Quote Book Escort Cards... which were inspired by Martha Stewart Wedding ideas... and thanks to my key wedding helper {dear family friend Charmaine}, we were able to personalize & assemble these adorable books with my favorite love quotes...

I found a beautiful set of whimsical card stock paper {from Michaels} that had accents of our wedding color -- orange... so, it just had to be... I used this for all of our wedding details, which all came together perfectly...

these were quite meaningful to me, because I'm a lover of quotes & have journals of such inspiring words...

there were four different sets of quote books... and we made a little over a hundred...

of course during assembly, it seemed too ambitious & quite overwhelming... but the end product was absolutely lovely...

I hope my future brides found this helpful =) Happy Wednesday!
