This may be crazy, but I decided to post my LONG LIST of things to do or I have done.
I am at the half way mark and never really sat down to rationalize all the things I said I’ll do. Every time someone presents a question or item to me regarding the wedding my first response is “I’m not paying for that, I’ll make it”! And there response is; “you can’t do everything”. Well My thought was it’s just a few things. HA! A few my fanny. My couple of items turned into a few items that morphed into a smorgasbord of DIY’s.
Have you taken on more than you thought you would, how are you coping?

In the initial planning stage of my wedding (first month or so) I was under the allusion I could do everything. I quickly came the realization that I can not. Therefore the only things I am really DIYing are my paper products (invites, programs etc.) and veil (all done).

My list has morphed too. It has over 60 items on it and I am slowly, but surely, getting them done. Just take your time and do one thing at a time, then check it off and put it away. Take a break every once in awhile, so you can start fresh again. You can do it 🙂

I am doing lots of things, a little moré than i thought. My rosary (swarovski breads), my lazzo (with swarosvki breads),cake accents(madre of real seashell and rhinestones),card box (madre of seashell and pearls), my garter,ring barrear,flip floppy for guests. I still have to work on: my veil,my 2 bouquets, boutonier. If you want it, you can do it. There is lots of inspirations, depending on your wedding theme. I round lots of ideas on Etsy, inspire the bride.com,magazines, martha stewart crafts

I’m planning on doing the invitations and additional paper- place cards, table numbers, etc. I wan a birdcage veil, thinking of making that. Also toying with DIY flowers, since I’m not really looking for more than some flowers stuffed in a vase, but even that seems to be sort of a big undertaking. We’ll see. Though if I decied to do every DIY I have book marked, I probably wouldn’t be able to get married until August 2033.
