I made so far:

pomander balls

flowers for the gazebo

Door hangers (do not disturb) for the guests at the hotel…Destination Wedding wedding

Going to be making gift bags to be given out when guest check into the resort

We are basically doing our own invitations from a kit we got at micheals and I am adding my on touches with rhinestones on them

DIY stuff has kinda consumed me the past few months…LOL

Oh, it’s terrible. Here are the things I remember off the top of my head:

-Constellation magnets as favors

-Ombre place cards

-Aisle runner

-Embroidered constellations (20!) to use instead of table numbers

-Ceremony altar type thing

-Programs

I’m sure there are more. I’m seriously crazy.

@AussieSummer:  Each ball took prob about 30 min I’d say…I got bundles of flowers and cut the stems and placed in a floral ball….got the shepphard’s hooks from dollar tree and spray painted white. I finished the project in about a week working on a little bit here and there. They weren’t hard to make at all…..biggest part was gathering up all the supplies

Veil,

DIYing enamel flowers for tables and FGs

rehabbing thrift store baskets for FGs

making my own fabric and brooch bouquet

stds

invitations

photobooth

collecting all the flatware and salt/peppers etc. we will need as out venue wont have them

ordering the linens, venue wont have

centrepieces

lighting (tent reception)

ipod music for between band sets

pomanders

will call escort cards (part concert theme wedding)

and reading the diys above makes my head hurt about the rest of the decor – ceremony something has to be decided and created, programs…facckkkkkk. I need to leave this thread yet.

 

We don’t actually even have a venue booked but have it down to 4 that will let us host the tent wedding I want. I want it picked by next week or I will lose the fragile little bits of my mind that are left. which means the diy will look like it got spun in the dryer for a bit :-/

These are some more of my flowers that will go above the gazebo….having a Destination Wedding in st thomas but the resort wanted 450 for one arrangement to hang above the gazebo so I am shipping a box down there before the wedding b/c $450 for one arrangement was UNREAL!
