Hi All-I am excited to be back with another DIY for Kerry, and hopefully you all can relate to the project today!
With wedding season in full bloom, it is time to think about gifts! Yesterday, I was scrolling through what seemed like endless pages of a girlfriend's Crate & Barrel registry for her shower. I could not bare the idea of saying, "Congrats on your upcoming nuptials- here is a set of dish towels!" Lame...
I know there is a "registry etiquette", but I also know from my own experience that the best gifts I got for our wedding were personal and handmade by loved ones. So that got the ball rollin' on what I could do that would have a personal touch and something a bride would really love.
I realized that one of the most sentimental elements of a wedding is the couples wedding song. Our wedding song was Ray Lamontagne's "You Are the Best Thing"- love it and it has such great memories for us :)
I googled it and found that I could download the sheet music from Musicnotes.com for less than $5. I printed the first page out on a medium weight card stock paper.
I love the way it turned out- it is an extremely personal and sentimental item, but not too wedding-ish so it would look good in any room of the house.
Now, all you have to do is ask a friend what their wedding song will be and take from there. Knowing how emotional brides can be, I bet you would get some water works with this one! Make sure you write a little note on the back of the frame with the date and your name so they remember you were thinking of them on their big day!
I loved jumping over today, and you should check out my blog for more projects like this!
