its my constant reminder since i have to walk by it a zillion times every day. my friend comes over and makes me tell her my progress on things on the board too she thinks its funny. it does keep me in check though for sure!

@cr6zy: I’m feeling kind of unorganized when it comes to projects. That is a fabulous idea!

I don’t start ordering/shopping for a new project until the last one is done.  Example handmade bridal shower thank you cards are almost done.  Just started gathering info for bottlecap cuff links. 

The list is more in my head than anything but I am trying to take care of the stuff that we will need later but I won’t want to deal with by than.  I am getting married a couple months before you so here is what is done –

  • Save-The-Date Cards
  • Rehearsal Dinner Invitations – printed, in envelopes, addressed, no stamps
  • Bridal Shower Thank You Cards
  • Moving on to cuff links
  • Rose petal aisle runner is after that!

I just did one at a time and prioritized with the most important ones (and easily stored ones)!

I have in the back of my mind a count down to the wedding in weeks.  I know that I need to complete x amount of project A, B and C each week.  It makes it less overwhelming.  Now ask if I would like some help…..yes, yes I would.  LOL

my thing is most of my project supplies overlap. the roses in the centerpeices are also the guys bouts. the feathers in my bouquest are in other little things. the bling is everywhere. its just easier to have a stocked supply box with all the paper and bling and flowers than it is to buy things one at a time for me

I am an organizer, and would not be able to function without lists. I made an Excel workbook titled wedding. I have one page for guest list, one for ceremony music, one for reception music, one for budget, and one for DIY projects. The page for DIY lists my projects, their start date, completion date, and items I need to buy to complete each project. I can then print just the shopping list portion of the sheet when I go to the store. I saved it to my desktop for easy access.

My DIY project supplies are seperated by type in a 3 drawer plastic organizer (it’s huge) that I got on sale at Wal-mart for $10. Most of my supplies overlap for projects, so it works well for me. All my completed stuff, and partially complete stuff are stored in plastic bins with the items inside on a list taped to the lid. The bins will be used to transport to the venue, and the lists will make it easy for the site coordinator get what she needs for set-up (her idea).

Hope this helps. 🙂

By The Way, was the info on NOLA helpful?
