Today is our third wedding anniversary. Not sure where the days go… but I’m so glad I get to spend them with Brendan.
Today I’m sharing a DIY tutorial on Design Sponge for the gifts I gave my bridesmaids!! This project was so easy and turned out really well, so if you’d like the step-by-step, head over to D*S for the details.
If you’re new to Mint, welcome and thanks for stopping by! You can also visit me on Flickr (lots more photos of this project) and twitter. And, I have a stationery shop in the works… with new updates coming soon.
Today my “Wedding Graduate” post went up on A Practical Wedding. I think it’s pretty good, except if I could do it all over again I’d maybe include a few sentences about how much I love APW and how it brought me back to earth when I was up to my ears in out of season flowers and chandeliers in oak trees. And, maybe, I’d say how honored I am that Meg found my wedding “creative, thrifty, and sane” even though it occasionally felt like none of the above : )
If you want to know my two cents on wedding planning, you can check it out here. And really, Meg, thank you for the gobs of practicality over the last year.
After making so many inspiration boards for our wedding (many of which I couldn’t share here because I did such a bad job remembering where I found the photos!), I thought I might as well make a couple out of our own wedding photos. I’m not quite sure why I wanted to do this, other than it was really kind of fun. And since inspiration boards were where the wedding planning all started, it seemed fitting that that’s how I should end it, too.
It is a little bittersweet to be done with our wedding planning. Despite all the tears (oh yes, there were tears) it was a lot of fun and was the biggest project we’ve pulled off yet!
As soon as I finish writing it, I’m going to have a “wedding graduate” post for A Practical Wedding. If there were two things that were most important about our wedding planning, it was that we only spent time and money on things we enjoyed, and practicality was a major priority. I’ll leave it at that for now, and I’ll let you know when my “two cents” are up on APW.
Have a great weekend!

Wedding quick links:
We’ve come to the end of the evening!
We ate cake…
We danced to motown and funk…
we took a few more photos outside…
and then it was time to go…
And we slept for about a week!
Thanks for reading Mint, and for all your nice comments and emails about our wedding! Harry Taylor took all these photos, and he would be great for your wedding, too : )
Tomorrow I’ll have one final wedding recap post (I’m excited about that one!), and then normal, mostly non-wedding posting will resume on Monday. Assuming I remember how… haha.
