I have so many diy projects to do. Some of them can’t be done until further out on the wedding (escort cards, etc)
but many of them, I could be doing now…
i have purchased materials for many of the projects, but can’t seem to get to a starting point on anything.
this is what i have to do:
-escort cards (must wait until rsvps arrive…)
-seating chart (waiting)
-moss letters (ok, i actually have started on this…feeling better now! lol!)
-programs (i know about how many we’ll need and could start on this. i have bought the supplies for it)
-stds (done but still collecting addresses and sending)
-invites (still working on what i’m doing…)
-table # signs
-guest table sign
-bar sign (sign with signature drink recipe and sign with bar “menu”)
-instructional signs (for cocktail hour games)
-i spy signs
-directional signage (with arrows to wedding, reception, parking)
-place cards and place card holders
-birdcage veil (just bought most of the materials but they arent here yet)
-favor tags / favor decor
-bridesmaid gifts (mostly done)
-belly bands-card box-pomander balls
i think this is my list…hopefully i didnt forget anything!
what have you done and what is your to-do list on the diy front??

Yeah so much to do but I think I have tackled all I can right now!
- Programs planned and template made.. haven’t printed in case anything changes
- Menu has been designed just waiting again to print in case anything should change
- Invites done!
- Guestbook done!
- Table Numbers done!
Still left to do:
- favor labels/ecort cards (doubling up favors as escort cards)
feel like I am forgetting stuff…. oh well! Can’t wait till October!!!!! 🙂

I am not doing a ton of projects. Right now my list includes:
Stuffing, addressing, mailing invites (don’t need to mail until around end of June/beginning of July)
Table numbers – took the pictures, need them printed and matted
Print escort cards/bookmark favors and mat them – won’t happen until a few weeks before wedding
Finish writing vows
And that’s it! I am making certain that I have a light load!

oh, i forgot the vows part (oops!)
we are going to use a traditional vow, but make a few little changes here and there, so i dont think that will be a biggie…but i do need to add that to the list. that is what this is all about, after all! 🙂
thanks for the reminder!

Yes, I have been. I also forgot to put the vows on my list, but they are in process. I want to have everything done 6 months prior to the wedding, so I don’t have to think about it.

That is very good thinking…Im aiming to have all mine done by the end of the month. (might be wishful thinking)
(Well, the things that I can do now…I can prep the escort cards/place cards but I won’t be able to write names on them until I have RSVPs)
