A Vintage DIY Wedding


When my second daughter got married, I was extremely busy making almost all of the accessories for her vintage themed wedding. It took a lot of time but in the end we were happy with all of the personalized touches.

I hung hankies on another old window, without glass, for guests to use for "tears of joy".  These were hung from wire that was strung across the window in three lines and clipped with tiny clothespins.
