Monday Made It - Wedding Edition

I've been MIA this week...
While everyone else is thinking about or starting school, I've officially been off for 2 weeks now, with 3 more to go.
I'm linking up with 4th Grade Frolics this week, although I don't have an actual 'Made It this Week' (shhh, don't tell ...) I thought I'd link up, because my last made it was just before the 'Big Day'

I GOT MARRIED last MONDAY! My 'made it' could be my wedding right?
It's been so surreal. A long year and a bit of planning and it's done.
We got married in a medieval country barn. Literally the best day ever, so cliche, but it really was.

I might be biased, but I'm pretty sure I had the BEST flowers ever
Here we go, some 'Made Its' - my sister woodburned the table numbers.
I also used old books for the centerpieces. The menu is from a previous Monday Made-It

We (okay mainly my sister and bridesmaids, but I was the 'ideas girl') made the decor and based it on kind of a vintage, rustic feel. We took a wooden pallet and strung twine across for the photos. The cards box was made from a very old piece of luggage used as a prop at school.

Okay, so once again, soooo sorry about being naughty and not putting a school Made It this week. When I'm finally allowed back into my room (September), I'll start posting some actual school things.


  1. Your wedding looked beautiful! Love all the touches you made!


    1. Thanks Debbie!
      Pinterest was such a help for the decoration ideas.

  2. what a great theme!

    Thanks for sharing.

  3. Congratulations! What a beautiful wedding! You are totally excused; surviving your wedding is definitely a "made-it."

    1. Thanks for that. Now that is has officially been two weeks I am starting to come back down to Earth ... which means I'm starting to panic about school!
      I will hopefully have a school Made-it when I get back to my room on the 2nd.

  4. WOW!!! Your wedding looks amazing! I love the barn and all the decorations. I enjoyed your pictures. Many congratulations!!

    1. Thanks Jennifer. Living near the English countryside, I wanted to have a very 'English' wedding for my family and friends that came out, so the barn was a natural choice.
