What can we bees do to help!?
Can we send craft supplies for DIY projects? I would totally be willing to help with that!
Can we do some online shopping for her and deal/bargin hunting? I suck at that, but I know there are some women who magically can make that dollar stretch!
What can we do to make this wedding happen?
(sorry if I sound corny, but I am having a gung-ho let’s band together people and fix this mood)

Awww. You’re so sweet for trying to help out.
Let me know, MrsA. I’ll help out if I can. You’re welcome to the stuff I have left over.
Im pretty crafty. I made my own jewelry and accessories. I designed our invites. I made my bridesmaid dresses. I made our cake topper (and a clay one that we didnt use.) Thats just the start of the list.

I actually think this is really sweet. Anyone is more than welcome to what I will have left over, and that will be everything since I bought everything..literally everything.

woot! That would be awesome if we could get some stuff to her. I’m guessing if it’s lightweight shipping wouldn’t be too much.
I would even be willing to make a small $ donation. I’m a broke ass college student, but I really feel like she’s not needing/asking for much here in life and I really want to see it happen for her.
I have a TON of craft stuff if she would be able to use it for invites/signs/place cards/decor.
Perhaps I could make her a paper bouquet of some kind? Light and easy to ship, and I love crafts! I hope she wouldn’t hate the idea.

Sort of lame because it’s cheap stuff, but I could send bags of popcorn for the popcorn popper? Or.. I don’t know. lol
SoontobeMrs.A, come back and tell us how to help you make this happen!

If it’s far enough after my date then I’m totally game. My wedding is somewhat “festive” so there may be some things she could use. If she wanted them? Just as long as it’s a few weeks after my date?
@Tunacupcakes: Just wanted you to know that you’re adorable and I literally went “awwwww” when I saw this. haha

I’m broke as a joke right now, but I will try to do something… 🙂
Hope you feel better MrsA!

@AmeliaBedelia *blush* eh…. thank you. 🙂
Ok, there is where I stop and go… “huh, where to start.” Good question MissHobbit.
Hmmm, I’m guessing she is no longer log in on the boards, but let’s PM her and tell her to come right back and get to planning with us!
Then, we can look at carnival theme stuff and…perhaps make some inspiration boards or people can decided what they can contribute if they wanted to.
I’m no expert so ANY ideas on how to organize this would be welcomed!

Woo-hoo! Thank you Koala Bear and MrsWoo.
I just found a wedding carnival theme that had bingo games on brown paper with a circus font. That would be super easy to make on a printer and then assemble and send. So if she would like something like that to entertain guests….

I think it would be best if SoontobeMrs.A was able to come up with some concrete ideas on what exactly she really hopes on doing, and then we can take on projects for her to check it off her list. Whether it be helping with things like games or searching for really cheap vendors or possibly donations even to help with the cost of things?
I’d also like to stress that even though I know everyone wants to help and contribute as much as possible to help our own, I wouldn’t like it to feel as though we planning her wedding for her, (I mean to me planning is half of the fun).
Hopefully you all get what I mean?

Hahahahaha I totally get what you are saying about not wanting to plan it for her. 😀
I have that problem when I try and fix things <_<
I agree though, she needs to come back and tell us what we can do what sort of projects we can help on etc etc. Her wedding would be a year from now so plenty of time for a bunch of resourceful ladies to make it work.
So I sent her a link to this thread and told her to come back and help us help her. 🙂
