After checking some wedding photos websites, I got the idea to create this "Just Married" signage & the accompanying cans to make noises as the wedding car is driven. Fortunately my creativity was working well on those 2 days. Here's the result. I really like the signage. It took me quite awhile to figure out how I should make it attractive. Not some shoddy signage that I have seen.


It all started with the corrugated carton box that I got from a stationery shop. I know that I would wrap it up with some paper to make it more attractive. But I had not a clue what kind of paper to use. I just threw everything to the wind and think of abundance.

Luckily the stationery shop that I went to had this silver colour strip gift wrapper. Very classy-looking indeed!

Then I used Adobe Illustrator to produce the fonts. Traced them onto pink stationery paper. Cut them out and paste them on the wrapper. However, the pink fonts didn't stand out. That's when the idea of using marker pen to outline the fonts would make them more prominent.

After that the idea of using the pink ribbons to tie them came to my mind when I saw those ribbons at the stationery shop. Eventually everything falls into place perfectly!!! How blessed we all were!

The cans really made lotsa noise as the car drove away from the temple. As I listened to the "clink-clonk" noise it made, I can't help smiling that this little creativity has sparked some noise in the couple lives immediately after they became husband and wife.

That's beautiful. I love the excitement of a wedding.

My husband amd I were thinking that we could relive some of that excitement by tying cans to our car and a sign that reads, "STILL MARRIED!" (Snicker)

"Use your first smile, your first form of generosity, of love, of kindness—use it at home; start at home. And if there is something left over—if … your plate is just full of abundance of patience and goodness and smiles and joy, then by all means, you should go … and offer that to others. But we must begin at home." by Dr Robin Smith
