Handmade Wedding Ideas
This amazing photoshoot by Wednesday Inc is a lovely balance between feminine and masculine, sweet and cheeky, playful and beautiful. I’m head-over-heels for those terrarium placecards and so appreciative that the Wednesday team is here to describe all of their amazing details.

From the designers. Wednesday approaches event design like we approach our everyday, with a strong sense of play and passionate curiosity. We wanted this philosophy to flow through the entire design of the photo shoot by incorporating delicate, intimate details with contrasting bold antlers and the outdoors. The most cherished moments in life are spent in merriment with those we hold dear, so we wanted this shoot to be a depiction of that sentiment and celebration.
The weeks leading up to the shoot were incredibly fun as we worked on all of the DIY projects. Nearly every detail of the shoot was handcrafted! We made DIY flowers out of crepe paper streamers, floral wire, floral tape, glue, beads and scissors, and they were incorporated into all our arrangements and placeholders. The placeholders were made by removing the top of a clear Christmas ornament, and filling it with moss, sticks and the crepe paper flower to create a terrarium.
Each place setting incorporated thrift store-chic plates with modern china, and was completed with a customized menu wrapped in miniature homemade bunting. The balls that were hung above the beautiful table scape were made by wrapping balloons in string that was saturated in mixed glue, water and corn starch.
The dreamiest part of the entire day had to be the tent that we made from mosquito net and lace table clothes. The draped homemade bunting and layered textiles gave it the most charming and cozy feel.

Thank you SO much for posting! I’m planning a late summer (’11) California-mountain- wedding and couldn’t get enough of the details in this shoot: the tissue decorated- candle lit jars, the string balloons (genius!) and the bunting… just the thing I’ve been searching for!
AMAZING! I love the antlers in a bell jar! Might have to steal that idea for the Thanksgiving table!
love the paper goods!
Gorgeous! Love the details and croquet!
Lovely! Where does one find antlers for decoration…assuming one is not a hunter…
