Here is my DIY checklist:
Wedding headband, veil, program covers, inside programs, flower girl bracelet, flowergirl lace bag, flowergirl headband, cardbox, table cards, guestbook frame
Am I missing anything? And would anyone be interested in seeing results?

What about a seating chart?
I would be interested in seeing your results and I am sure a lot of others would too.

Of course we’d be interested!!! How about thank you cards, are you hiring a florist for your bouquets, etc.

Ok so I was fixing up the silk flowers for my flowergirl’s headband and now I am totally stumped on how to get them on the headband. They are about an inch/inch.5 tall……SOO then I crocheted some flowers that are flat, white, grey, orange (my wedding colors) and I am able to visualize how to get these on a headband BUT now the problem is would they be too informal? I am wearing pearls etc…these would be the only crocheted items…..

- hair flower (done)
- cootie catchers
- escort cards
- table numbers
- cake topper (done)
- shower gifts
Look at all of us DIY mavens!

I. AM. PSYCHED! My veil lace came in the mail today! And my Grandmother’s veil and Mom’s veil will be ready at the cleaners on Wed. This means that I will be able to construct my veil by the end of my winter break! YEA! Do any bees have helpful hints when sewing lace?

I really want more on your DIY veil! They are sooooo overpriced!

My DIY list is long as well, but I think I’m good in time now:
- cake toppers (done, you can find the tutorial in the DIY section)
- place cards (almost done)
- wedding programms (almost done, but I still need to speak the pastor before printing them)
- wreaths (50% done)
- wedding favor labels for fans and cigars (done for fans, you can find the tutorial in the DIY section)
- card box (80% done)
- menues in 3 languages
- bridesmaid survival kits (70% done)
- little candy-favor bags for the choir (about 30-40), that will sing for free (it’s a very good highschool choir and the sister of my future-husband is a member)
- table numbers
- seating chart (20% done)
- ring pillow
Oh my god, now that I see all I still have to do… but fortunately I can read some more tutorials and don’t have to do the whole trial-error-process.
I already posted 2 tutorials – there will be more!

Although these may seem like a tinnie tiny dent in my list they by far took the longest of anything I have atempted at this point! I should be gettting pics (and tutorials if they are deemed good enough) later tonight 🙂
