Target Wedding Registry Ideas

September 13, 2013

This year’s Target Wedding theme is “Be Yourself, Together” which celebrates the different qualities that each individual brings to a relationship to make it uniquely their own.  Target was one of the first places we registered for our wedding and, let’s be honest, I still shop there every chance I get!  So when they approached me to help promote their wedding registry, I jumped at the chance to share some ideas with all of you.  To come up with a gift pairing I thought about ways in which my own husband and I differ, and what products would work well for both of us.  The husband is definitely more of a night owl, usually sitting up late in bed to read long after I’ve fallen asleep next to him.  So I thought the combination of the Threshold pinched pleat comforter set and that adorable tear drop glass lamp (paired with this great shade) would compliment us perfectly!

And here they are, together in the store!  Even cuter in person, if you ask me.  What are some of the things you’re registering for? Do you and your fiance have any differing opinions on what you hope to receive?  Would love to hear your thoughts and hope you all have a great weekend!

DIY Wedding Cake Topper

September 12, 2013


How cute is this DIY glitter heart cake topper?  So simple and cheery, you could use them for your rehearsal dinner or wedding cake and then save them to reuse at a birthday party!  Minimal supplies and a few easy steps, you could make your own for just a few dollars.  Love!

Labor day is past us but it still feels like summer in North Carolina, so it felt appropriate to share this adorable DIY wedding today!  Robin and Lee were married last summer on a sheep farm in California and they truly took DIY to a new level.  The bride handmade just about everything you see here, with the exception of the adorable pinwheels which were purchased from BHLDN.  Robin made the table numbers using a Cricut machine and different patterns of blue and red paper, that were then clipped to clothespins and inserted into the covers of old books found at garage sales, thrift stores, and antique fairs. The fabric boutonnieres were all hand crafted by the bride and her maid of honor, who also made the gorgeous cupcakes!  And the wedding cake itself? Handmade by the bride’s sister-in-law.

The door with the seating arrangements was found at an antique store, and the bouquets were made by a family friend after she and the bride visited the Sacramento flower market together and chose the flowers. Another family friends built the dance floor from scratch and spray-painted the heart in the middle (love that). Truly a labor of love from all their family and friends!  Thanks to Deborah Huber for sending along these great images.
