This Real Wedding Thursday brings us to Alabama for the wedding of Michael and Elizabeth. As you’ll see it truly was a beautiful DIY wedding; from the bright colors to the special touches created by their loved ones to the constant smiles around the venue. A true day filled with Love.

Michael and Elizabeth chose our D-I-Y printing method for the Keep it Simple Save the Dates, Keep it Simple Invitation, Keep it Simple Response cards and Keep it Simple Thank You notes for their wedding stationery.

What was your highlight of the day?
The highlight of our wedding day was probably our first look. It was really special and before the craziness started and guests began to arrive. We were both really excited and seeing each other helped calm our nerves. After seeing Michael, I was so calm and just so ready to marry him!

Is there anything you would have liked to do differently?
ummm no! =) To me, the day was perfect! If I had to do something differently, I would have eaten more food! I didn't get to try all of our food at the reception and our guests said it was all really good (provided by IZ Catering). But I really wouldn't change a thing!

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
Let your friends and family help you out! Especially if your wedding is mostly DIY. It helps you get all of your projects done faster and it's just more fun. Don't get too stressed out and never lose sight of what the day is all about. Oh, one more thing! Delegate on the wedding day. You are the bride and you should be relaxing and not doing ANY manual labor! I had such great friends and family that did all the heavy lifting on the big day and it made the wedding day the most stress-free day!
