I’ve jumped around from idea to idea (bunting! Tissue paper flags! Picnic!) but I think we’ve finally settled on something because that something is so, so US. Really think about what you and your FH love.

For example: there were these adorable tandem bike invites on Etsy that we both loved.

But, we’ve never ridden a tandem, and neither of us owned a bike as adults until about a month ago, when I bought one for me. Yes, the invites were adorable, but I realised in the end that they had nothing to do with us.

Oh my gosh. I’m having the same problem.  I’m 10 months out and even my seating chart is done! The absolute only thing I have left is to pay, and where is the fun in that?

I think you would be a perfect candidate for DIY stuff.  Pick a theme, stick with it, and start making stuff yourself.  It will keep you away from searching for other things.  Once you find an idea you like, and make something yourself, you’ll view the time invested in what you already made as “too far to go back” (the first thing I made was my “in lieu of favor” cards, and I’ve stuck with my color scheme since then because I had already invested time in it).  I still love my color scheme (just a blue palette.  all shades of blue in case I find a good sale), and I’m happy with the projects I have done so far.

There will always be other ideas that are cute, but will they work for you?  Will they work for your venue?  Will they work for what you and your FI are? 

I bought a Martha Stewart Weddings magazine for initial ideas for DIY stuff, and I’ve been on a roll since then.  I have 23 months to go, and tons of stuff to keep my time occupied.
