I also love doing craft projects.

I’m doing the centerpieces, the favors, the place card holders myself.  I have already done the save the dates (with a little help from a photo dept)  That’s all I plan on doing myself.  I don’t want to load too much on my plate & then not be able to get it done myself.

i meet with my best girlfriends every thursday night for girls night.  i am the first of us to marry.  we have already talked about how our girls nights will with time become “work” nights to handle the DIY project tasks.

I think with enough time and planning, you can accomplish a ton!!!

My wedding just got moved up 6 months to October so I’m a little panicked! I’m making the invitations, tissue pomander balls (only need 4 though), favors, tote bags for bridesmaids, all the flowers, card box, and the centerpieces. I have a lot of help though.

I’m putting ribbon on our votive holders.  That’s it, I’m not very crafty. 🙂

Im doing (or have already done)

My invitations, my favors, bouquets, centerpieces, flowergirl basket, broom (well my mom is actually making my broom) veil, pins for bridesmaids hair, boutineers for the guys, programs (although i think im gonna ask one of my bridesmaids to help me) and thats it i think. I actually find working on the crafts helps to take off some of the stress of wedding planning. its very soothing for me…so it works out pretty well 🙂
