I plan on making my own table numbers. I will be gluing wooden numbers to wooden stands from Michaels and spray painting them. I do not get married until the end of OCT 2014. Do you think it’s too early for me to make my numbers and put them in storage? I’m asking because FI think’s it’s too early. He thinks they’ll either get ruined or that I’ll forget about them (which I won’t because I am so so excited about them)

I dont think its ever to early. Diy projects often take a lot more time than you think they will!

I definitely agree that it’s never too early to start, however as someone who started planning two years before the wedding I know that my visions changed quite a few times. I’d hate for you to start doing something, only to want something totally different and then have wasted all of that time on it.

@Mrs.babycat: I really don’t think they’re going to take very long. I’m only having about 10 tables. I think the only thing that is going to be time consuming is finding the perfect bronze paint.

@PacificMrs: Thankfully my vision can’t change. My venue is booked and the room is very elaborate on its own, it has its own color scheme without me doing anything to it.

I personally wouldn’t do it until a few months before the wedding.

The earlier the better – I’d personally rather get them done and out of the way as soon as possible than have to rush 🙂

I don’t think it is ever too early! My wedding is May 2014 and I know it’s still early, but I can’t wait to just dive in and start doing everything and see my vision come together.

Although I don’t think it’s too early my issue (I am very indecisive) is that you might change your mind or come up w/ a better idea in 2 months.

For table numbers, I would definitely wait. I’m wrestling with this, too, but I’m waiting until I get my RSVPs in, since I don’t want to make too many numbers, you know? I’m doing something similar, actually.

Personally, I would wait a little to start. It’s fantastic that you want to get a jump on things, but it could turn out to be a waste of money. We have a few things we bought that didn’t get used, and now we’re trying to decide if we should sell it or give it to goodwill. We were SURE we were going to use them several months before the wedding, but things changed over time.
I started doing everything around 3 months out, and we got everything finished in time 🙂

I’d get it out of the way now! Then you won’t be doing them frantically the day before your wedding!
