I don’t have any pics yet, but I have DIY’d my invitations, thank you cards, photo guest book, placecards (and placecard ribbon board), card box, wine bottle labels and programs.  I need a hobby more than wedding crafts I think! ๐Ÿ˜‰ 12 days to go.. I’ll have pictures post-ceremony!

Invitations – We are doing pocketfolds.  I’ll be honest they are semi DIY.  We ordered the pockfold and mat components from http://www.cardsandpockets.com.  We used a glue tape, which is awesome, to secure the mat the pocketfold.  Our pocketfold is yellow and the mat is blue.  We will be using a heavier white 8.5 x 11 paper we purchased at Micheals to do our invitation and insert components.  We purchased the envelopes online somewhere and got a better deal than the website.  We could have made the pocketfolds ourselves and saved more money but it wasn’t worth driving ourselves nuts doing them.  They can be done…we just aren’t those people.  ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Favors – We live and love Vermont.  Most of our guests are coming from out of state for our wedding.  We want to share our passion for the state with them.  We are using some little organza bags I scored on ebay for about 8 cents a piece shipped.  ๐Ÿ™‚  We will get some maple hard candy and lake champlain chocolates for the bags.  Both are VT products.  We are also flirting with the idea of attaching a VT lottery ticket to each bag.  We’d be the coolest people ever if someone won big at the wedding.

I’m DIYing my invitations, programs, escort cards, table numbers, and table runners.

I bought pocketfold invitations from cardsandpockets.com, along with black linen pre-cut paper to mat behind the invitation.  I bought a big pack of white paper from paper-source.com.  Using 7 damask clear stamps by Heidi Swapp and this stamp press, I heat embossed a design over the main invite.  I then bought black linen cover cardstock from paperandmore.com and stardream quartz text weight paper from paper-source.com for the inserts.  I printed everything at Kinkos.  I bought black satin 7/8" ribbon from jkmribbonandtrims.net.

I also made coordinating table numbers and programs using the same colors and embossed stamp design.  For the program, I cut paper to a size of 5.5×11.  I scored the paper in half and used a hole punch to punch two holes through all the papers and then thread ribbon through to make a book-like program.

I’m DIY’ing invitations, I have done Save the dates with my Gocco already, anything paper pretty much although I don’t have the designs for them yet. I was going to do one of the fabulous Aisle runners that some of the bees created, but our ceremony is outdoors and there is a turn in the path, so I don’t think I can… I have created my cardbox already- here is a pic of the finished product:

I am DIYing my flowers! I have tried this before in my sister’s wedding.  It was pretty simple since I found the best provider ever. Fiftyflowers.com saved me a lot of money (since the wedding flowers were a gift for my sister) and headaches. I received fresh flowers, top quality. I ordered roses, orchids and hydrangeas, which are very easy to work with. Definitely I will repeat this story for my own wedding in May
