@mandi.pitt: the aisle decorations are made of lace ribbon (in a tulle sized roll). Good ol’ Hobby Lobby! 🙂 Thank you!

@ADBK2011: I was at Joann Fabrics yesterday and noticed that they have predone wedding veils in the wedding aisle.  Not sure if it’s what you are looking for, but I figured it might be of use to someone out there!

I haven’t actually had a chance to do much so far, although I’ll have a month off work before the wedding so that should help!

Here’s what I’ve done so far…

Cake topper:



Wishing well and feather pens:


Other things I’m DIYing…

Flower girl pomander, sash, and headband, bird cage card box, table names, favour boxes, programs, children’s activity books, place cards, and lantern centrepieces.

Let’s see:

Ringbearer pillows

Fascinators for flower girls, Bridesmaid or Best Man, and myself

Table numbers

Photo guest book

all stationary (STD, invites, programs, Thank You cards, wrap labels)

Paper cones for petals/ceremony

That’s what I can think of off the top of my head!

All the jewelry

Champagne toasting glasses: Done!

Cake serving set: Done!


In Progress:

Cake topper


Bridesmaid’s hangers

Bridal Flip Flops


Table Numbers


Card Box

Escort Cards

Head table décor


Pretty much everything that’s in the “In progress” list I have the materials for, but I just have to make them. Or, I’ve started them but haven’t finished it 100% yet.

I finally started some DIY projects.  Note, these are rough drafts just to see if the size and coloring of stuff is OK.  I have to say I am pretty pleased with my attempts and can’t wait for the finished produts.
