NurseMandie:  I wish I was able to do our own. I never attempted to diy them Because I did not want it to come out all crazy looking. My fiancé and I decided to order some from this invitation place.I will be on vacation for the next 3 weeks I may attempt to diy different one and see how it will come out.

I made these crepe paper flowers as part of our centerpieces. Seemed like an awesome, enjoyable project in the beginning. By the end, I was so miserable. They look awesome, but they took so long to make, and my fingers hurt so badly after. If I hadn’t started so early, I probably would have scrapped it and just went with real flowers only. Everyone had better love them or else!

NurseMandie:  Haha! I don’t blame you at all! I am so in that phase now. Here’s to hoping we have the strength to hold it together until our wedding days!

NurseMandie:  I wish i had the budget for 2 things:

1.) a professional to address envelopes -i may suffer from irreversable carpal tunnel at the end of this…(i would do stickers because like you IDGAF right now….but couldnt find any i liked…and when i thought it was just 50 envelopes no big deal….now im at about 110 envelopes….luckily family is helping 🙂 but im down to 2 others helping because no one else has legible hand writing … 🙁 !)

2.) I really really wish i had the money to pay someone to do our centerpieces and decorations….first 3 were fun and relaxing…about table #6 im about over it….plus i keep making extra work for myself because i am convinced everyone can see the flaws i can….plus if I EVER have to make another pew bow ever again I may just go postal! (i still have no idea how my mother talked me into doing them but ugh never again!)….plus i may never get the spray paint off of my shoes 🙁

but right now i am entering the IDGAF portion and hitting the you dont like it…you should have done it or paid or it…. 3 more months, 3 more months, 3 more months……

I attempted the make the floral arrangment for our arch and it was terrible so I ended up adding it on to our florist. I wish I would’ve just left it to them from the start, it cost almost as much to try to do it myself and it turned out terribly when I tried!
