Tina & Scott’s travel and craft themed wedding took place at The Greenbranch, Texas. It was predominately a DIY wedding influenced by the couple’s travels. “It was mostly a do-it-your self peacock inspired wedding with a splash of anything vintage was a blast,” the couple told me. “Our invitations were an image of a vintage suitcase with travel stickers of places we have visited. This connected with our first date; a “geocaching date”. We not only wanted to share our journey as a couple with our guests but also encourage them to have an adventure of their own. The wedding favors for the evening were uniquely trackable geocaching coins designed by us.”
“Our bouquets and centerpieces were entirely do-it-yourself too,” continued Tina. “We wanted to create the bouquets and centerpieces ahead of time meant no fresh flowers, instead the my bridesmaid’s and I gathered for a craft day to create fabric flower bouquets. We used multiple mediums ranging from an old pair of the Scott’s jeans, small wooden flowers and to French silk ribbon. The bouquets took all day to make five, with one backup, and it was a lot of fun!”
“The reception centerpieces focused on peacock-based arrangements with an eclectic assortment of vintage pieces. One that the we especially liked were several copies of “When you Marry”, a home economics book from the 1950’s and 1960’s with many “antiquated” attitudes about marriage.”
Tina’s wedding dress was from Whirling Turban (who I’ve featured on Rock n Roll Bride before). Tina was pretty much able to design her dream dress from scratch and so chose a custom peacock pattern on the front of the dress and a dramatic green colour.
