My first DIY was my Save the Dates!  I downloaded a Kodak 4×6 template and then added the images using Paint and Picnik.com.  I printed the save the dates at Costco for 8 cents each!My second DIY was my table numbers.  I bought these frames from IKEA for 99 cents each, and then used the exact same process as my save the dates to make the inserts.  Instead of printing them as photos at Costco though I just printed them on my sister’s colour printer.  They came out great for 99 cents each!

My next project will be my wedding invitations…but I’m not sure what to do with those yet!  I’ll probably make those over the Christmas break 🙂

my first (and longest) are my invites..

still to come:

menus, programs, ceremony decorations, escort cards, table numbers, candy table sign, napkin holders, centerpices (on top of the flowers and vases included in the inclusive reception site)

I think that’s all… I don’t know

My first DIY was pomanders and boy did they take FOREVER! @katiesee: I used them as aisle decoration (hung on the aisle chairs) for the ceremony.

I made my table numbers, card box (out of picture frames), the dinner menus, picture collages (look like those memo boards), my new name hanger, Out of Town bags, door hangers (for Out of Town bags), candy bar sign, candy bar labes for the vases, the escort cards, the guestbook (advice cards and vase with label), thank you signs for our picture for our thank you cards, bathroom baskets, rehearsal dinner invites, day off timeline and photo sharing cards (although no one used them).
