Charlotte, this is so beautifully done. Elegant and casual at the same time. This is going in my archives so that if I ever have a future daughter-in-law I may share these ideas. Thanks for showing us these photos. Hope to see more!

Wonderful pieces and so creative! My daughter's wedding was last Saturday and it was a day of pure bliss but after 16 months of planning, the day was over so quickly.

I love the graphics used for the Save the date and invitations. But I have to say that the Quick-print sheets are my favorite touch. It's so nice that she had the presence of mind to pay special attention to her guests. It speaks volumes to her character. I look forward to seeing the additional wedding pictures. Thank you so much for sharing them with us.


Thank you for sharing more of the details! What an awesome young woman she is! Her creativity just added an extra touch to this beautiful wedding.

I love what she has chosen, Charlotte. You can almost see her personality coming through the screen. I envy her handwriting. It is just stunning. Love the little bit of whimsey with the colored flowers on her thank you notes.


Can we repeat the entire event? Wonderful! Awaiting photos!




I love the "out of the box" style that she chose! Different is very "in" right now and it flows with personal touches.
Can you share the children's bag ideas too?

Sooooo wonderful and the personal style throughout is extremely charming and tasteful. My own daughter's wedding is less than a month away, yikes. thanks for sharing such a special time with us!


I asked her about the childrens treat bags and she said: (shopped at Targets dollar bin for most of it) an age-appropriate toy (and for some, this included whoopee cushions !!), coloring book/crayons, card game, bubbles, costume accessories for the smile booth, plastic carrots filled with candy. all packed in a gift bag with childs name at the table and the childrens menu. Going for wild and happy!
