Decorate your Wedding With Pretty Ribbons!

Hi Everyone!
True :D here! son and new daughter-in-law's wedding is over. It was beautiful! In part because of all of the pretty Really Reasonable Ribbon I used!
Bonnie has so many pretty colors and styles to choose from that it would be impossible to not be able to find what you need for any decor colors!

The ribbons I used in the following projects are:
White Satin
Teal Satin - currently out of stock...I think I used it all!  ;)
Cream Swirls
Please note that the satin ribbon roses on the flower girl's basket, ring bearer's pillow and the other items are made with white satin ribbon that I colored with Copic markers for the exact color I needed.

I made Kristin a practice/keepsake bouquet since she had a live bouquet for the wedding. I also made Kurt a practice boutonniere. ;)

I wrapped some pretty satin ribbon "french braid" style around a cylindrical vase so she would have a display stand for the bouquet.

It also served as a center piece for the head table at the wedding. I love double duty projects! :)

This is Kurt's practice boutonniere.

Most of the flower girl baskets and ring bearer pillows  I saw in the stores were cheesy and expensive so I made my own!
Here is the before....

Here is the flower girl basket after I worked my magic! ;)

This is my ring bearer pillow. It was super easy to make!

Here is a picture of the unity candle I made. 

I thought it was a nice touch to make a personalized sentiment tag for the front! :)

Here are the guest book and pen. Again decorated with cream swirls and home-made satin ribbon roses.

The reception tables were decorated with my home-made favor boxes featuring Cream Swirls Ribbon.

Maryanne left a comment below that she would like to see a close up of a candy favor. Thanks for asking Maryanne! here you go....

These are the cards I made for the family tables.

This kissing ball was hung in the center of the head table.

I have shared the invitations before but thought I would again since I am posting everything else.

Here is the video tutorial I promised this morning. Sorry it took me so long...YouTube was causing me issues! ;)
Remember that you can click on the 4 arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the video to view it in full screen. Then hit your "Esc" button to return to normal mode. ;)

I know this was a rather lengthy post so thanks for bearing with me.
I would like to send a special shout out to RRR's Bonny Garby...Thanks for all you do my friend!

Big hugs,
True ;D

Your son and daughter in law must be thrilled with all you did for them here. Such stunning creations all of them. I would have loved to see a close up of the favorboxes thoug, as they´re not easy to see here, but the rest is so amazing, so I guess they are too LOL.
