Wedding Ceremony Confetti Envelopes with Martha Stewart and Cricut
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
I’m back today with another wedding DIY project with Cricut Explore Air 2 Martha Stewart Edition. This series is a few months long A) because there are an abundance of wedding projects that can be done with these materials, and B) that’s how long I agreed to do these sponsored posts. LOL. I wouldn’t tell you to buy or use or support a product that I didn’t personally LOVE. I use my Cricut all. the. time. For personal projects and for client work. They’ve teamed up with Martha Stewart to offer a fancy schmancy new gold machine and genius material bundles.
I use the Martha Stewart Mixed Materials bundle and the Martha Stewart Cardstock bundle to make some super cute confetti envelopes that are handed out to guests at your ceremony. Who doesn’t want to walk back down the aisle as two married people being showered with confetti??? Consider it your new dream.
To make the envelopes, I used ivory cardstock. You’ll need the scoring tool for the Cricut air2 too. This will make the lines that you fold on. Then I cut a rectangle to size out of clear acetate. I glued this on the inside of the envelope behind the letters. Tada! Now you’ll be able to see the confetti inside of the envelope without it falling out everywhere.
Yep, I cut all of this confetti out of cardstock. FINALLY. Make your own confetti to match your wedding colors perfectly. I’m really making dreams come alive with this DIY project today.
A few hours, a Cricut air2, and some materials are all you need to create these confetti filled envelopes for your wedding ceremony.
Wedding at Current / Shanna and Aaron
Shanna and Aaron were married at Current at Chelsea Piers in NYC. As their event designer and florist, we worked with them to incorporate their love for NYC, touches of a modern Palm Spring vibe, and his Japanese heritage into an amazing celebration. We LOVE an excuse to use giant tropical leaves and king protea in any event.
On their invites, we used the greenery that would be showcased throughout their wedding day flowers mixed with modern typography and a vintage photograph of their wedding venue. That envelope liner shows guests what Chelsea Piers used to look like way back when.
The groom’s mother hand folded 1000 paper cranes to use as a backdrop on their chuppah, decorated with oversized palms and kings protea.
AND THOSE BRIDESMAIDS BOUQUETS. The coolest greenery bridesmaids bouquets let the bride’s oversized bouquet shine in all of their group shots.
Round Up: The Best Guestbooks
My top 10 picks for modern wedding guestbooks for all of you brides and grooms out there. The point of the guestbook is, well, exactly what it sounds like: to have a place for guests to record that they were present at your wedding. Some guests will simply write their name. Some will write a whole message. Others will draw pictures. Years from your wedding, you’ll be able to flip through to remember everyone who celebrated with you.
You can go simple, like #3, with a blank book for everyone to write you a message. With some planning, you can do #1, and print a photo album of your relationship for guests to experience. For a more tactile approach, a vintage typewriter like #9 will give your guests a fun surprise moment while they type out a loving message for your marriage.
I like #6 as a piece that you can display in your home after the wedding. Customize it with the day of your first date, first I love you, and engagement date. Have your guests sign their names all around the dates.
For a more minimal couple, #10 would look awesome styled on the built-ins in your living room. Put out slips of paper for guests to write their messages on to drop in the box.
Your guestbook is one of the easiest things to cross off of your to-do list. Order it now, pack it up, and it’s one less things to think about. While you are at it, don’t forget the pens, instax camera and film (if you are doing that option), and a pretty pen cup.
