early in the days of our wedding planning i knew i wanted a festive, fun, playful end to our ceremony. i was so excited when i visited Once Wed and saw this gorgeous image - i knew then we'd be spending the next 6 months crafting hand made pom poms in our wedding colors! my MOH made the trek to Michael's to find out how the heck to make pom poms. We found this amazing invention and there was no looking back.
after enlisting the help of said MOH, fiance, and mother-in-law we had 800+ pom poms ready for the pelting.
next, we needed to make the cones. i bought a roll of kraft paper at staples and made a pattern to cut out the shape of the cone. topher helped with cutting out the shapes, and i glued and stuck on the labels i designed. the night of my bridal shower we had a little factory going - you can see it really was a family affair!
after all the work we put into this tiny moment of the wedding i absolutely ADORE how it turned out. the best part was i completely forgot about the little pom poms until they started flying at us. it was such a fun, magical moment.
oh, and we also made a pom pom string for the aisle so no one would trample Meg's amazing petal design.
