wowza you have done lots!!! I still have 8 months to my wedding and have only done a couple things.

I made my statement necklace (but I need to change the sparkly brooch – I don’t love this one)

and I’ve ordered 8000 silk flower petals in ivory, deep purple, fuscia, and a medium purple to make aisle liners… Like this:

@smilestorm:  Thanks!!  THe flash in the second photo makes it look cheap lol, but I spend way more money on the pearls than I anticipated :S….

And I think it will be very time consuming :S… but luckily I really enjoy having a project or craft to work on.  I don’t think I’ll have that many DIY things for the wedding, so I’ll enjoy working on this one

Oh I designed my STD’s from scratch with photoshop and had them printed, and then also made my envelopes from scratch and mailed them with those…. so that’s another DIY

We are going to DIY allllll the flowers. Some will be grown, some made from coffee filters. I may end up buying 3 for my hair and sash.

Also DIYing my sash. Because the pretty ones are so expensive and I can’t justify spending almost as much as my dress!! Ack! I have lots of time to perfect it 😉

We will be DIYing everything from signs to table numbers to card box to.. Well, most of it! 

Heck, you’re even gonna have to DIY your own taco plate at my wedding 😉
