I can’t believe it’s already been a year since we got married!  I was so excited for our wedding weekend last May that it seemed like it took forever to get there and now it’s a year later!

One of the fun things for me about remembering that weekend was thinking of all the DIY projects I included.  It wouldn’t have been our wedding without a lil Coastal Kelder flair!  I knew I didn’t want to overwhelm myself by doing everything, but had a nice balance of things I made versus things I designed or outsourced to others to produce.

As a fun wedding Wednesday post, I wanted to look back at my favorite DIY projects from our wedding day.

Greenery Wreath

This wasn’t something I expected to make, but when I realized our cocktail hour would be in front of the house at the Island House, I knew the door needed a wreath.  I bought a few types of faux greenery and put a wreath together.  Perk: It’s great on our front door year round.

Directional Sign

The only thing I “built” was this directional sign to let guests know where the different parts of the wedding were, since everything was at one venue.  I was big into ombre at the time (and still now), so used different shades of blue and painted the letters on as well.


I was just getting into making pillows when our wedding was coming up and wanted to make some for the rocking chairs that matched our koozies.  Hunter’s grandma loved them so much she took one home 🙂

Oyster shell ring dishes

You had to expect the original Coastal Kelder project to be at our wedding.  I brought my silver one for our rings and gave monogrammed ones to my bridesmaids in their day of gifts with pearl earrings.

Save the Dates & Programs

I had a whole vision with a blue watercolor design for our save the dates and invitations and loved creating the save the dates, thank you notes and programs myself and working with Lindsay to make the invitations.
