  2. Altar decorations (not really sure what though)
  3. Ring Bearer Pillow

    My DIY List = Pretty much everything other than attire and food.  Even as far as  that goes, I’m planning on doing my own cake, and modernizing my Aunt’s veil.

    Obviously I haven’t started anything yet because my wedding is a couple of years away still but…

    -BM Cards/packages
    -STDs
    -Invitations
    -Food for reception
    -Cake
    -Vows & Ceremony
    -Hand fasting cord
    -Music Playlist (if we decide to have a dance)
    -Thank You cards
    -Favours
    -Snack (again if we decide to have a dance)

    That is what I can think of so far. Probably more I’ll end up doing because I am insane like that.
