- Wedding: March 2013
So when I started this whole wedding planning thing, I thought I’d watch a few youtube videos, read a few tutorials, look at some images, get some ideas and go to town on this DIY stuff.
Yeah, no. Apparently, I suck at it. So bad, as a matter of fact, that out of ALL the DIY projects I’ve started, I’ve completed TWO projects.. The third will be the invitations. Not a biggie since I’m a computer geek anyway.
I have 4 months left until the big day and I’ve gotten them both done this week (finished them today).. I’m pathetic.
Anyway, I tried DIY name hangers… fail. I have about 5 ft of wire left in a box, unused. lol
Pomanders, both coffee filter flowers and silk glued on to foam balls, fail.. Tried wiffle balls, better, but the coffee filter flowers were a massive fail. GRR!!
There’s others but I forgot..
For those who made their own aisle runners, and customized them.. WOW!
I bought mine at Michael’s with a coupon, then printed out the design, traced it on to the aisle runner (hint- not too hard!), and then painted it. I’ve been painting since last Sunday, and I finished it today!! Overall, just painting it took me about 10 hours.. This is it. Does it look ok?
I made a few mistakes, and I’m hoping they’re not noticable.
The other is the pew flowers… Those really weren’t a biggie. I’m more concerned about the aisle runner.
I bow down to those creative and persistant (and patient!) bees out there!! You have my respect!!!!!!! Keep up the great work!
