  1. It was so much fun putting together this board, and it helped me think more about the Florida wedding I am planning for next summer! I put together inspiration for an economical, green, PRETTY D-I-Y wedding that reflects who my beau and I are–from our Dominican and Colombian backgrounds to our love of peanut butter and jelly!

    What a terrific contest!

  2. My theme is a compilation of orange, lace, an old-time feel, and personal touches all centered around the “you make me happy when skies are gray” line from You Are My Sunshine. I love all things wedding and wedding-related, so trying to trim down my amount of pins was definitely difficult! However, I think that I get my idea across and I’m excited to share it with you!!

  3. When will the winning boards be announced? Did you guys mean September 27th instead of August 27th?
