Post Wedding Purge

I mentioned several times throughout the planning process I mentioned all the crafty items I was purchasing for DIY decor at our wedding. Well, it worked. I spent HOURS painting and writing with chalkboard markers but it all looked wonderful, the pictures were framed, signs hung, and banners proudly displayed. But now that the wedding is over, I do NOT need dozens of chalkboards, Mr & Mrs signs, bubbles or stripey straws laying around the house (and my groom would prefer it if this was not the case!).

Another bride-to-be (Happy Wedding Week, Adrienne) approached me and my friend, Valerie about having a “Bridal Yard Sale” here in Charlotte after all of our weddings are finished up. This is a spectacular idea and I cannot wait to share the goodies with other brides who are knee-deep in planning. So, I’m sharing a preview now of some of the things I will have for sale (Southwest VA friends, I’m headed your way at the end of the week and am happy to bring items to you if you see something you like). We haven’t set the date for the Yard Sale but I will keep you updated! You’ll want to mark your calendar for this collaborative and creative day!
