My favorite kind of wedding is DIY and the weddings here at Vintage Villas this weekend
were definitely that. DIY flowers, signs, centerpieces, & more!

Brides will always find themselves swamped with details and details and more details. Sometimes those personal touches for your guests become overlooked. I see PLENTY of weddings and it is those little touches I just love! In the midst of peak season I have hand picked a few of my favorite ideas for your guests to enjoy.
Paper straws in your main wedding color is always a hit, and they are the most simple thing.
Find them here. Pictures via.
Paper bags can be bought at your local grocery store at $1.50 for about 200 bags.
The favor bags above were a DIY project I did. We did around 180 bags. Hole punched, strung ribbon through and stamped each bag by hand = 4 hours of man time with 5 bridesmaids. Plus, pretty packaging makes the guest feel even sweeter!
Craft seating cards. this display was done by Bouquets of Austin for a recent wedding here at Vintage Villas (sorry for my fuzzy iPhone picture). This was done by taking the glass out of a picture frame, pouring sand with in the frame, and placing each hand stamped seating card in the sand with succulents surrounding. Easy DIY if I say so myself!
Custom cake toppers are all the rage right now. etsy.com is a good resource for these cuties.

One of my favorite parts of a wedding is the candy and desert bars. Anything from the classic cake table to the extraordinary sweets bar, I love it all! The Vintage Villas sales team had the opportunity last week to meet Andrea Duty of Bake Sale and taste her sweet treats! Bake Sale delivers daily & can create a customizable dessert buffet (yes buffet!) for your special event. Jump on the bandwagon and have Bake Sale “bring your sweet visions to life”!
Balloons at weddings. some say its odd, I say don’t over do it.
Less is more with these bad boys.
Simple & vintage.

Just enough to add a pop of color.

I am calling this the soft open, not quite the grand open. So welcome to the Vintage Villas blog! Here you will find sweet photos of brides and all their happiness, ideas and tips to keep you in the wedding know, and all things Vintage Villas.
As for today, we are hoping to tie up some loose ends on the back end of things so there will be a few additions to the header, gathering images, & other odds and ends. We are very excited about new beginnings with the blog and where it may take us and you!
Hope you love and enjoy.
