Gold Bouttoniere Ideas

Since Anthony and I met at the Cotton Bowl I made the boutonnieres out of cotton bolls. I also had cotton bolls in my bouquet.

These cufflinks were a portion of my wedding present to Anthony. Our first roadtrip together was to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas to see a Lego exhibit.

These gold flower shutters were one of my favorite wedding projects. You could use full sized shutters to make a gorgeous altar backdrop.

Since Anthony proposed with over 100 balloons, I had to find a way to incorporate them into our wedding.

    What a beautiful day! You are so crafty, love all the details. The paper heart is genius.

    Wow, that heart backdrop is seriously impressive! I love your bouquet, rings, those gold bridesmaids’ dresses, your birdcage veil, the wood slice menu, and your venues!

      Thank you for your kind words about my special day. I think you listed all my favourite parts, minus the groom of course. 🙂
