I have a stupid one that I’m terrified about. My RSVP cards. I don’t know if I want to use ivory or silver paper (the silver matches the Save-The-Date Cards, the ivory came with the box o’ invites). How do I word it? What do I do to make it look less like a piece of paper? Can I just direct people to email their RSVPs and save me $0.44 in postage?

See – dumb. Probably the easiest project ever, but I’ve backed myself into an RSVP-crafting-coma!

And I get to make two different versions (doubly screwed!). Because 30 guests are invited to the ceremony and reception, and 200 are just invited to the reception.

I *was* afraid to do mine own invitations..I have no problem coming up with stuff for other people, but myself? geez!! I am going to be attempting them in the near future..

I am totally afraid of making my own cupcake tree..I don’t know if I have the patience to do it, and I’m worried it’s going to cost too much..and I don’t think I have the skills.  I saw some great ones that people have done on here, and they totally inspire me, but I am too nervous!

I want to use small bird figurines on our short centerpieces. The cheapest I found were 4 for $6 online but my sister told me that she saw some at Dollar Tree so I am crossing my fingers that when I go tonight, they are what I am looking for. I want to spray paint them an ivory/beige color and then hand paint the lyrics to our song all over them. I don’t exactly know where I got this idea from, so I’m wondering if it’ll even work. Wish me luck!

I’m completely at a loss as to DIY-ing my invites. I have no idea what I want them to look like and well to be honest Fiance doesn’t give a flying -beep!- about it.

CENTERPIECES FOR SURE!  I know it’d save me so much money (or would it?) but I’m waaaay too afraid to try em!  Do I really sit in my reception hall the morning of my wedding arranging florals?  I wouldn’t even know where to start haha

@elaineathon– I strung together about 400 paper cranes in just an afternoon. Like you, I was putting off the task because it seemed so overwhelming, and then was surprised by how quickly it went. The secret weapon for me (which I found online) was to use baby yarn. It doesn’t tangle like fishing line, which I tried first. Good luck! 🙂

@Vonnegurl: I love that rock candy chandelier!  So pretty!  Maybe you could use it at a shower?
