Cory + Chris II

cupcake wedding ideas

We were absolutely thrilled with our poster-size invitations, and thought they really set the tone for the day. We designed them with the historic letterpress print shop in downtown Nashville, Hatch Show Print, and they were so fun and different. I made all the “paper wheel” place cards by hand, and repeated that motif throughout- the same wheels (with buttons in the center) covered the big C’s on the Carriage House doors, were on the bar menus, and in the aisle decorations, which were random arrangements of the wheels attached to and hanging by strips of tulle. Let’s just say I used a LOT of hot glue! My mom and I also made all the napkins and table toppers ourselves from fabrics we found, a mix of yellow gingham, teal floral, aqua stripe, and purple polka dots. Many people took napkins home for themselves after the wedding! The leftover strips of fabric made great bows on the favors, which were homemade chocolates from Chris’s cousin Sue Ford and her candy company, Candy for All Occasions.












Thank you again to Kate for sending over these gorgeous images for us to swoon over all day. And to Cory and Chris for letting us take a peek into their wedding. We wish you two many years of love and happiness!

Once Wed was launched in March 2008 to meet a need in the marketplace for an online listing service for second-hand wedding dresses. Within a short time, the company had developed into an online wedding publication and resource to provide newly-engaged brides with inspiration and tools to plan their dream wedding.
