Standard

In the spring of 2009, I “married” my husband three times! First we filed the legal paperwork to be married (it’s a very cut and dry ordeal in S. Korea), then we had a traditional Korean wedding ceremony, and lastly, we had a wedding reception in California. This series is dedicated to the last event, which was truly my DIY masterpiece. Nearly every aspect of our travel-themed wedding was a DIY project that I poured my heart into. I hope you enjoy this series of DIY wedding projects!

DIY Wedding Favors : Lucky Bamboo

Standard

A wedding favor idea I’ve always liked is the idea of a “green” gift– for example, seed paper that guests can plant for flowers, charitable donations, or potted plants.

Well, since I’m having lucky bamboo for my centerpieces, it wasn’t a stretch for me to consider also having them for my wedding favors.  I plan to be ordering all of my lucky bamboo from Kaptiva Imports (based in Florida), and they offer a cute little 4″ lucky bamboo in a test tube as a party favor.

To tie the bamboo in with the travel theme, I created little travel tags that also include instructions on how to care for your lucky bamboo.  I was lucky enough to find these great scrapbook accessories at Big Lots when I was in California last fall, so I certainly stocked up!  Now I have a variety of tags–and I must say that I can’t wait for these li’l fellas to travel home with you all!
