Introduction: "I Do" Wedding Prop

It has been awhile since I last posted a tutorial. Well, as some of you might have guessed, Chuan and I are tying the knot, finally! We have been busy building a new home and preparing for our DIY wedding. It has been a crazy but very exciting experience so far!

Step 1: Materials

  1. Cardboard
  2. Wooden Sticks
  3. Heart-shaped Cookie Cutter
  4. Acrylic Paint (red)
  5. Paint Brush
  6. Pencil
  7. Permanent Marker (black)
  8. Scissors
  9. Sticky Tape
  10. Ribbon

Step 2: Stencil

With a pencil, draw 2 heart shapes on the cardboard.
Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter as a stencil guide.

Step 3: Cut Out Shape

Cut out the hearts along the pencil markings.

Step 4: Paint

Coat the cardboard hearts with a layer of red paint.
Leave them to dry completely.
(I used acrylic paint as it dries faster.)

Step 5: Write "I DO"

Use a pencil to lightly draw “I” and “DO” on the hearts.
Or if you like, write your name initials or any meaningful symbols/letters.
Once you’re happy with the design, go over the pencil markings with black permanent ink.

Step 6: Attach Stick

On the flip side, attach stick to the cardboard with some sticky tapes.
Make sure the stick is secured well.

Step 7: Add Ribbon

To finish off, tie a ribbon bow on each stick just below the heart.

Done! These props will look great for your wedding shoot,
wedding photo booth or home decor.

I'm not really terribly familiar with weddings, but finding a renewed interest in the subject lately.

Please explain more about the role these signs play in the proceedings. Are they merely decorative, table centre type things to be surrounded with flowers and such, or is there a part of the ceremony where one needs to wave a sign? I can't say I've seen it, but then I only recently learned about "Wedding Sand" and I've never seen that done either.
