Finished the hand-stitching on the last cup sleeve yesterday! And I mailed the invitations on Friday! Things are moving along! Bridal shower and bachelorette party next week! (I have an out-of-state bridesmaid that needs to be measured for her dress, so we planned these parties earlier specifically so she could fly in and get measured, but were also able to bundle the trip with one to attend another friend’s wedding the following week, see her family, etc.)

Last night, I printed all of the table numbers, and the “Cards” & “Please Sign Our Guest Book” signs. I’m going to the Dollar Store this week to buy black frames to put the table numbers in.

I used an exacto knife to make a slit in a buttload of corks for escort cards, I now have a callous on my finger. Still have ~50 more to slice. Hopefully they’ll look something like this when all is said and done!:

My veil arrived yesterday, and my shoes are scheduled to be delivered tomorrow.

I also put together the banner for our photobooth backdrop last night (from Etsy):

Party Heaven Metallic Silver & Gold Fancy Frill FanTastic Tassel Tissue Garland

 

Next project: stripping labels off of 100 wine bottles for centerpieces.

jenilynevette:  Wow you have so much DIYing to do! I LOVE it!!!!!!! I’m a project kind of person and love to just sit there and build stuff. I put together 70 bridal shower favors the other day all by myself with a Corona and a good movie on. I could do that all day long. 

I love your drink menus. The pearl is really going to pop with that color behind it.

Well the color of font was to dark for my signs, (thank god prints are cheap at costco) however, this sign that will be going by our champane for toasting and our cake, came out nice! 

I got the initial votive holder from Pottery Barn on clearance!

My bouquet, boutinierres, corsages are all COMPLETELY DONE!! I still need to figure out what (if anything) I want to do with the bridesmaids’ flowers (a single long-stemmed rose each)

And I’ve made real progress on my brother’s bridesman present, which makes me really happy! I was very worried about that, b/c my sewing skills are not where I’d like them to be, so I never know how long a project might take!

I’m just starting to make my invitations. I’m doing everything myself (it’s just paper, I aint paying nobody to do it!) so I figure it’ll take a few weeks and we should be able to send them out by the end of the month. I’m making the prototype today so when my Fiance comes home from work he can give it his approval! I have still so much to do though, I think I need to stick a big list on my wall and cross things off as they get done, just so I don’t lose my mind!

I FINISHED THE COSPLAY BACKPACK!! …ish. The backpack itself (minus the liner) is done, and I cut out the wings last night, so just gotta assemble and then attach wings and liner. But this is a relief, b/c I’d modified the backpack pattern, so I’m really glad that it worked correctly! :p
