Plenty but my wedding hasn’t happened yet so they have just turned in to wasting money. I made a sign that says “here comes my mommy” it looks like my kid made it… And I was going to make memory books for each table spent all this money on supplies and when I made 1 I didn’t like it.

I made my Save the Dates with raised lettering and on fancy pearlized paper and they looked like a high school project.  :c  My invitations turned out BEAUTIFULLY and that was the part that really mattered, but I was still a little bit disappointed.

Finishing making our favours the night before. I got my family to do it, I sort of regret it. I wished I just let them relax that night but I was so gung ho in getting it completed. We ordered macarons for them, but I should have compromised and be happy with leaving them in a plastic envelope instead of having to make the little boxes, decorate them and then make tea bags to fill in the space! It was beautiful but I still regret making my family tired the night before.

Invitations where the BIGGEST bitch of a DIY project I’ve ever done. Although I probably still would hvae done them I might havetaken some short cuts – like doing a printalbe PDF off etsy for the wording part so I didn’t have to spend hours upon hours formatting in word

Invitations and a sign that ended up being over the top in how many times in how many times it took me to get it right. The sign is to tell people where the Cocktail Hour is versus the reception etc…

My invitations and my aisle decor. 

The invitation could have been A LOT better but I just kind of gave up. Oh well. As far as aisle decor I was really proud of them at first but I’m afraid they’re going to look really cheap on the day of. :/
