One of the things I love most as a blogger is interacting with brides and hearing about your projects and plans. (clearly so much, that this post may have popped up a little earlier than we meant it to!)

We’ll be featuring Yolanda and Ben’s gorgeous wedding on Polka Dot Bride soon (remember their stunning engagement photos?), but first, I wanted to share with you their gorgeous DIY projects they they created for their wedding day.

Above Yolanda’s work desk sits a canvas of two birds and trees, created by friend Daniel Yegorov of Design Collision , it was an engagement gift and used on the couple’s engagement party invitations.

Yolanda and Ben were inspired by a Hallmark card they received for their engagement. They adapted the idea of a red heart with a dictionary style definition of love and designed the invitations themselves (with the help of good friend Daniel Yegorov of Design Collision. They were printed and then cut by Yolanda using a paper trimmer and corner punk. Each envelope was printed with a bird from a stamp Yolanda found on Stamp-It.

Yolanda found the idea to use matchboxes as wedding favors on a wedding site. She designed them herself using “Perfect Pair” stickers from Prior Engagement and covering the boxes in paper from Fiskars.
