DIY Wedding Shower Ideas

My sister is getting married in a couple months, so I've been busy crafting and helping her with all things creative for the wedding.

For her shower, I designed these umbrella invitations and backed them in different colored pieces of cardstock because I couldn't decide on just one!

I think people get worn out of the usual guest books and giving the couple advice about being married. I wanted to make it more fun for everyone and I hope that my sister and her soon-to-be husband will be able to look back and laugh at this. I was really lucky to find this cute pink binder for super cheap and I added the little umbrella image I used on the invites.
I created a Mad Libs-style letter for each guest to fill out. Everyone seemed to have a great time combining some funny comments with the happy well wishes.

And since I was busy crafting, I figured I'd make her a little book to write down all her gifts she received from her showers and wedding. (She actually gave me a little book for my wedding, so it was kinda fun to give one to her as well.) I bought a little blank book and then found some pretty pink heart fabric to sew a cover for it. I also found this adorable little "I Do" iron-on applique and added that to the cover.

And well...might as well use up the extra fabric I had left and make her a little tag with her name on it! Tutorial for the embroidered fabric luggage tag coming soon!
It was a really fun shower to plan and I hope she enjoyed it!
