Return of the Gocco

Following a June filled with invitation construction, we needed a break from the Gocco. But this past weekend — the last one before the wedding! — we got reacquainted with our old friend.

Project #1: Cocktail Napkins

My mom suggested we add our monogram to red and orange cocktail napkins to use during the cocktail hour and to distribute with our cupcakes during the reception. I’ll admit that this wasn’t at the top of my to do list, but I found some down time on Sunday evening, and I figured I’d give it a go. It was surprisingly easy!


I Gocco’d our monogram in white onto 300 napkins (cost $12 total). I then stacked them in alternating colors and bagged them for our coordinator to display.

Project #2: Gifts for the Groomsmen

This one was all Nick’s idea, believe it or not! He wanted to give each groomsman a photo from the bachelor party. So we headed to Michaels with our 40% coupons in tow and bought barn wood frames, glass backing kits, and blue mats. He then decided it would be cool to Gocco “OBX 2009” onto each of the mats. We’re both pretty pleased with how they turned out!
