Your lists were helpful to me. Here’s mine

  • save the dates
  • invitations French and English
  • programs, French and English
  • bridal shower thank yous
  • wedding gift thank yous
  • bridal bouquet
  • 3 Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets
  • mothers’ corsages
  • grooms bout
  • fathers’ bouts
  • 4 Groomsmen, pastor, translator bouts
  • 4 centerpieces
  • ??? pew bows/pomanders
  • Out of Town bags (do these count as DIY projects? or is this just something on the to do list?)
  • veil (half finished)

I think those are all of the DIY projects I have. Thankfully I got a big chunk of the flowers finished last night. Now, what in the world am I going to do for centerpieces? I have table ice (shiny plastic pieces) and some tulle to put in the middle. Maybe I need to find some candles or something…

I’ve recently revised my list. ๐Ÿ™‚ Pocketfolds are just not in the cards. (Hah. See what I did there? ;P )


My list:

The easy stuff (printing/stamping):

Save-The-Date Cards
Invite Envelopes
Place cards (train tickets)
“Cards” Banner


The more time-intensive stuff:

Passport programs
Card Box
Wine box
Paper flowers (3-4 kinds)
Suitcase Candy box favors


I am also seriously considering a DIY photobooth, but I need to make an amazing dinner and get Fiance to agree to it (in writing) after a bottle of wine.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • 90 pocketfold invitations
  • Huge ceremony backdrop
  • 35 paper flower 
  • Ribbon curtains

I think there are probably other things, but that is all I can think of at the moment. We are 11 days from the wedding, and I can’t believe how much we still have left to do!
