Bridesmaid Proposal: Pearls & Peonies

Bridesmaid Proposal by ohmyomiyage

Hello all!  Apologies for my lack of posts recently, but I come bearing exciting news.  My brother and his fiance have set a wedding date next year at the beautiful Summerour Studios in Midtown, Atlanta.  She is already family in my eyes, but we get to plan a party!  And to make things even sweeter, my future sister-in-law asked me to be Maid of Honor.  It came as a complete surprise and a true honor!

We already have big ideas for the wedding.  She’s a graphic designer so you know it’ll be spectacular.  First things first though, we had to gather her girls together for a bridesmaid proposal.

She was so sweet to buy all of us these gorgeous pearl earrings and rings for the proposal.  With a little bit of moss, some gold bows (sewn by my mom), and fluffy pink peonies, it was the perfect mix of DIY glam.  Here’s a shot of the bride to be!

Ito-Ya Inspired Wedding Decor

On Saturday, I highlighted the wonderful shop, Ito-Ya.  If you’re planning a wedding or a party, there’s no better place to find ideas, order custom invites, and plan your DIY projects!  For our wedding, Ito-Ya’s influence could be found everywhere.

– Paper for cootie catcher place cards and tea wedding favors

– Escort cards (materials featured yesterday) –

– Pom poms made from high-quality tissue paper (it made a big difference in the texture of the pom) & card stock for the Martha Stewart table numbers-

– Poms on our ikebana-inspired welcome table tree –

– Ribbon and mini clothes pins held up our photo walls –

The gold sakura stickers used on my tea favors were also from … you guessed it!  Although Ito-Ya isn’t the cheapest place in town, it’s the best place to pick up your high quality items that luxe up your event.  Happy shopping!
