Molly and Nick’s Small Town Wedding

Yellow Country DIY Wedding

Relaxed, informal, homespun. Molly and Nick’s Avoca, Nebraska wedding was a DIY bride triumph. Put the kettle on, this one is epic:

Bride Molly says, “I made my veil, hair pieces and shoe clips myself. My mother sewed the ring bearer pillows, the burlap table runners, the curtains behind the head table and all of the burlap banners that we hung. The 5-28-11 banner, we used as our save the date on a postcard. The Thank You banner picture we are using as our thank you cards.

“We had an arts & crafts day at my mother’s house 3 months before the wedding. My bridesmaids & sister-in-law, were all there to help tackle some of the big projects and the daunting ones. On that weekend we glued the lace ribbon around the wine bottles that I had been collecting since we first got engaged. We tied twine around the plastic silverware and glued a button on each one.”

“We made all of the photo props from templates I found on-line We made the chandelier that hung from the basketball hoop using wax paper and ribbon courtesy of designsponge.com.”

Nick’s mother made the wedding cake, all the cupcakes and the cookies that were on the dessert table. Molly’s mother made all the snacks for the cocktail hour, which included chocolate covered pretzels and candied pecans. The couple also arranged the center pieces for the reception the day before the wedding.

“The pearl necklace was given to me by my Grandpa & Grandma and I also used their suitcase that they took on their honeymoon to hold all the photo props.

Molly offers this advice to other brides-to-be:
One thing I learned throughout the planning process is to ask for help & to delegate, delegate, delegate! I’m the type of person that tries to take on everything myself and I learned really fast that I couldn’t do it all. Staying organized is also important, especially when planning from a far. I assigned certain tasks to people who I know I could trust to finish the job.

Molly’s favorite memory is the poem Nick read to her during the reception, which he had written that day. “His poem made me laugh several times, but also brought me to tears. It was such a sweet moment!”
