Designing the paper products! I love it and I always need an excuse to whip out the Gocco!

Designing my dress! I custom made mine and designed it myself based on ones I tried on and loved. So that was the best part ever.

Designing our invites was by far my favorite part. It was hard to put them in the mail!

Designing our invite was probably the most fun… but planning the dress and accessories was right up there!

This is gonna sound corny, but my favorite part has been planning the gifts for my bridesmaids and my hubby-to-be and my parents!! I am getting all kinds of cool stuff for them, thinking of each of their personalities and tastes, trying to make a huge surprise. I think I am going a little overboard (spending about $120 on FI, about $100-$130 on each of 4 BMs and haven’t even bought the parents’ gift yet!!) but its definitely been the part I have enjoyed most.

Designing my invites and doing all the other DIY projects. I’ve learned I’m much more creative than I thought I was.

Totally invites for now. I want to say programs too – because they’re a paper product and will by DIY’d – but one of my BMs and I spent a LONG night before the wedding assembling hers. I am NOT looking forward to that again. You can guarantee I’ll be cashing in on a IOU for that one. :o)

Otherwise, flowers! My step-mom does wedding flowers on the side (mostly for family and friends) but she’s giving me most the creative control. Right now I’m trying to pin down a third item to go in our centerpieces with two floral arrangements to start.

Definitely the caterer!  And finding our reception venue was pretty fun, too.

Anything on paper has become my obsession since I started wedding planning!  I didn’t do my own invites (sad, I wish I had found WeddingBee sooner) but now I’m doing some fabulous menus, programs, OOT guest welcome packets… I live at the Paper Source and have already started plotting handmaking my holiday cards this year just so I have more paper crafts post wedding to occupy my little free time 😉

It would probably be paper item design for me as well…..I’m GREAT at designing them but horrid at actually printing, cutting to size, etc. so I’d probably just design them and then outsource the printing.   If not I might finally roof-test my printer  Laughing

Paper goods.  I’m itching for an excuse to design a suite and buy a Gocco.  I just finished installing CS3 on my laptop.  I think I’m going to create the programs for my friends wedding in October to get my feet wet!

as we eloped i didnt have to do much but i did create a hundred odd “message in a bottle” for our friends and families. 

inside each bottle had a rolled up note from us annoucing we had eloped plus some sand and small sea shells and on the outside was the almonds & tulle (we’re italian-HAD to do the almonds) with a cute ‘message in a bottle’ tag.  cost us a fortune in postage but im still glad we did it

from the feedback, everyone loved these and a friend is copying it for her destination wedding invites
