I got the best news last week. My Brother-In-Law and his girlfriend and finally getting married. They've been together longer than Steve and I! They've not set a date yet but it will be sometime next summer. I was even more thrilled to be asked to be a BRIDESMAID!! I've never been part of a wedding party (other than my own) *super excited*

She's asked me for any help possible. This is Helen's time to shine!! 

So, I've started a Pinterest board for the big day and we've been texting back and forth about venues etc. OMG, I'm so excited!!

I want to use the Cricut for as much as possible. I've seen so many fab projects with different cartridges. Here are some of my favs:

Cut Out Name Invitations: This was a post about a gorgeous couple and their wedding, colours and details. I love the cut-out name with the dark colour and contrast inset. This can be used for so many different projects. I think that they used it for the ceremony programmes...

Embossed Card Wedding Invitation: This is the most simple idea but how elegant is this???!?!? I love it. You can get all sorts of different patterns and embossed card. Think of the possibilities....

Wedding Place Cards: I've seen so many variations on these over the years and I am really looking forward to making something fab for their wedding. Here is a really detailed example. (how amazing is it that the Cricut can do this all??)

Jana Eubank does some pretty amazing things on her blog (you should really check her out) I found her post on wedding favor thank you boxes and I had to share.

Invitation Round Up: This site has a wealth of ideas for DIY wedding invitations using the Cricut. There aren't any instructions or anything, just images. But a great place to start the creativity flowing! This one here was one of my favs.

The Plunge Project has a great series of DIY wedding projects using the Cricut. The instructions, imagery and all is fabulous. To be honest, I really wish I would have thought of this for my bouquet (10 years ago!) I think this is really unique.

Last but certainly not least is this beauty. Unfortunately, this was found on Pinterest and doesn't have an original source (that I can find) which is such a shame 'cause the person who created it should be praised! It is beautiful, simple and elegant. I think it would make a gorgeous center piece for a wedding table. And, with all of the Cricut flower types available, the possibilities are endless.

Okay, so this is my starting point for their wedding.....I'll have plenty more to follow. I had a great time making things for my own wedding, 10 years ago. Time flies....

I made all of the bouquets - from silk flowers ;-)
