My DIY list:
all the flowers (paper, except for a few real yellow roses to honor my mother who passed or past?) but the paper flowers I have started… i will include a photo
decorations including stage/dancefloor ramada, bridges, etc (if you search for me, you will see my venue) all in homemade paper flowers, lanterns, vases, pew cones, you name it, I’m diying it 🙂
will embellish STD and invitiations I order from anns bridal bargains ( its like 40 bucks for 75 of them… i will probalby order 100 for 20 dollars more.)
vases (in decorated tin cans, water bottles etc… Park doesn’t allow glass.)
candy bar (water bottles mostly, soda bottles, perhaps some decorative tin cans, obviously decorated and embellished)
cheesecake bar (have cheesecake and have the toppings “bar”)
I was going to order paper lanterns, but, i have made a few really big tissue paper flowers (napkins from the dollar store) and these will work beautifully and fine)
decorate my space (although I wanna hire someone to take it down)
all the centerpieces for “family style seating” which means long table scapes.
bouquet (hubbie not having a bouteniere)
I feel like i am forgetting something… but i have alot of DIY on my plate… on a very limited budget at a venue that does not allow glass! (its in a park)
I am just glad I have 2 years to do all this. I do not know how all you DIYers do this in like anything less than a yearl and a half… honestly, you have my respect.
if you are planning on doing ANYTHING diy… GET STARTED NOW! LOL… thats all i can say.
