Bridal Talk Tuesday: DIY wedding style.



Today I am linking up with Elizabeth again for Bridal Talk Tuesday!
You probably know from my previous Bridal Talk Tuesday
post that our colors are Navy and Lime green and
we are going with a beachy/nautical theme.
I have been in LOVE with etsy lately because of all the handmade
details they feature on their site.
Even though their stuff is reasonably priced I really want to
DIY it and put a personalized touch to it.

I want to do something like this recovered
ring bearer pillow except with burlap and navy
and green nautical elements added in.

 Also, I really want to have some flip flops in 
our wedding colors available at the beach that
will double function for tired feet also :)

 LOVING this chalkboard. KP and I are also
going to feature our favorite cocktails
as the 'drinks of the night!'

 These baskets would be so cute on the beach to hold
our programs. But they need some navy and green!

 In love with this burlap table runner with lace trim! 
Yes, please!
I really am dying to do this one.

 I thought these would be really cute with some old
fishing maps in the background to add 
to the nautical theme. 
And in navy or white of course.

 Clearly by the next few pictures I can't decide which
seating chart I like better! 
I need your opinions.
This one above would be maybe a nautical 
stripe fabric and maybe the cards would have
anchors instead of birds.

 Or sanddollars with the seat assignment tied on laying
in a tray of sand?

KP is loving these place cards with the flies on the side.
He is already planning on tying flies for all of his groomsmen's
boutonnieres in our wedding colors (of course)! 

I like these table numbers.. except with a little navy,
green, and possibly lace. 

Found this super cute chest on etsy and I thought
I would buy one of these and paint it for our 
wedding card box.
(They are at Michael's for $17.99!) 


Also love these signs to direct our guests..
These would also be so fun to make! 
I love hand-painting things!


This one goes a little more with our colors.. but I 
still want to make my own.

 LOVE this idea also. We will probably do this
as our guest book! Each guest writes a little
note ties it with NAVY ribbon and
tosses it inside the big jug.


I have been having so much fun searching
the internet for the perfect details for our wedding.

Let me know what you ladies think and 
which ideas you like best!

xoxo,
Little Miss Southern Love

Wow what a cute color scheme! Love the thought of adding lace details as well. The flip flops are such a cute idea, and I always think signs pointing the way to the wedding are such a great touch. This is going to be so beautiful!

I love all the great ideas!! I told Jarred about the fly lure boutonnieres... we thought it was very cute! I like all the personal touches. That is what makes the day so special! The little projects were my fave! and of course, if you need any help, please ask (even though we are 6 hrs way) ill figure it out.. or if you need me to scour all of the craft stores up here for multiples of something that you have already bought out down there.. let me know... we are so sad that we are not down there for all the planning... miss you guys!
