One of the first things we wanted to incorporate into the blog this summer were “do it yourself” inspired posts. Even though I am light years away from planning a wedding, DIY trends are always on my radar. And yes, I have pinned quite a few of them (hundreds, perhaps?). With so many DIYs trending online, we here at Suite Paperie were inspired to create our own, and launch our DIY a Week. And may I say, we have some pretty “suite” (shameless pun) ideas.
To kick off this series, we decided to start with a “wedding program sparkler”. This is an easy way to spice up an ordinary wedding program, and a perfect time to kick off your Fourth of July celebrations.
Step 1: When including the text on your program, make sure to leave at least ¼ inch blank on the right side of the page. This empty space is where you will place your sparkler and match!
Step 2: Create 2 small slits towards the bottom of the program with an exacto knife, and slide in the sparkler.
Step 3: Make another 2 slits aside the sparkler, and slide in a “strike all match”.
Guests can remove the sparkler from the program and light it at the end of your ceremony, giving you and your new hubby the ultimate send-off.
