DIY I Can Handle - Reclaiming "Anthropologie" Weddings

So you know when you look at those perfect vintage chic weddings and everything looks fabulously handcrafted and artistic and it makes you throw your hands up in the air, give up now, and scream at every budget tip that says to DIY because your art projects usually end up look like this:

Yeah, me too.  That's why I like this wedding.  It just looks beautiful and simple and real and charming and like an event designer didn't get within 100 miles of the thing. The photos and the joy were stunning, despite/because of the posters made with markers (and love).

Hell yeah.  Let's reclaim the anthropologie aesthetic from the high end weddings.

Check out more at the wedding chicks feature or directly at So Cal photographer Heather Kincaid's blog either here or here.


  1. yes i love it when i see wedding signs that are just markers and posterboard...probably because i could see myself doing the same thing. we don't all have time/energy/inclination to do anything fancier.

  2. love the aesthetic, especially the flowers in jars :)

  3. That is why they get paid the big bucks :)
