Thank you ladies for your lovely comments 🙂
We will be using the same photographers for our wedding that we used for our engagement photos, so we should be able to get some good pictures. I have a meeting with them on Friday to go over the “must haves”. And yes @ccranetobe: , I do remember comparing lists 🙂

I can NOT believe how much you have DIY’d (sp?!) …. my Fiance and I have yet to set a date, but when we do, I want to get busy with some arts and crafts like you have 🙂 Are you naturally artsy, or did you pull a lot of inspiration from other sources? (and if so…. where?) I can normally get started on something with a kick start, but have trouble imagining things from scratch!

I can’t believe you’re done!!! You’ve done such an amazing job honey! Now you can put down the paper punches and glue stick for a couple weeks before the wedding! Congrats!!!

@WineAndCupcakes: Thank you 🙂
I started right away. I do have a craft/artistic gene; however, I do have to gather inspiration too. I just googled and looked on wedding forums for inspiration and then did my own take on things. A word of advice; when you get engaged and want to start DIYing, pick your venue first, so you can draw on that for inspiration. Also, don’t let anyone talk you into not starting your projects because they think it is too early. Almost all of my projects, I thought about for weeks to get straight in my head on what I wanted to do, and then I had to round up the materials, and then get busy on it. Make yourself a list of what you want to do, and then do one thing at a time, and then check it off the list as you get it done. Also, give yourself deadlines on when to have each thing done by. If you keep your list on your computer, you can change the dates and order as needed.

@15happyyears: Thank you 🙂
I am so glad that I didn’t listen. I never would have been able to get everything done, if I had.
