We have another take on a fun DIY-filled outdoor wedding for you today, and this time it’s the darling couple Amanda and Brett who were married at the Hendry House in Arlington, VA. These two turned their DIY projects into reality with lots of help from friends and family!
To create their wedding color palette of yellow, rouge, and gray, Amanda and her good friend Danyce spent hours sewing flag banners by hand one early spring day over several glasses of wine. Then her mother made all of the pennant flags and napkin ties with the leftover scraps. “We actually only used 3 yards of fabric for the entire banner design! Striped table runners were sewn out of fabric from IKEA, and they used old vintage suitcases and L-O-V-E letters that they found at the Brooklyn Flea market as accent pieces.
The flower arrangements completed the colorful and sweet look and were all designed by Amandas mother. The flowers were presented in either buckets, a collection of old vases, or mason jars. My mother is a superwoman, she even made my bouquet and the corsages and boutonnieres for the guys!
Supporting small, local craftsmen and artists, Amanda purchased personalized Heart Shaped Seed Bombs from Seed Bombz on Etsy and even purchased Bretts ring through Jewelers Danny and Amy on Etsy as well!
