I love your idea of stationary for the bridesmaids..I’m sooo stealing that idea!

My wedding is 10mths out; so far I’m planning on doing:
Passport Save-The-Date Cards, invitations, OTT gable boxes (with that I’m making luggage tags for the guests and water bottle labels), "reserved" seating cards for ceremony…I thin that’s it so far.

I’m debating about doing paper flowers for my bouquet, flower for hair and Fiance bout.

I’m also doing personalized staionery for bridesmaids!  I also made them post-it note holders and a decoupage frame with a group picture from the bridal shower in it.

Other DIY projects for the wedding: Save-The-Date Cards, invitations, seating cards, table numbers and names, menus,  favor tags, Out of Town packets, and programs.  Let me know if you want to see pics.

JCM–how are you personalizing your napkins?  Cool idea!

I didn’t personalize stationary for my bridesmaids, but I did make my own thank you cards and I think it’s the same principle.  I took cardstock and cut them, then bought cute stamps at Paper Source and stamped a pattern on one side.  You could buy alphabet stamps and add their monogram too, which would be really cute.  Then find matching envelopes – you could even line them. 

I added a "Merci" stamp to the bottom of my cards and they’re ADORABLE.  I love them!  Will post a pic sometime…

I’m doing invitations, escort cards, favors, table numbers, possibly thank you cards, probably at-home cards for guests who aren’t able to make it and therefore aren’t getting thank you cards.

superstar, the wiki lists most abbreviations and what they stand for:

We’re DIYing some parts of our invites, part of our guestbook, the table numbers, favors, lining the envelopes, menus, Out of Town baskets, and programs. My mom is also DIYing our chuppah.

superstar- STD= Save the Date, OOT= Out of Town and escort cards are… I am not sure. Sorry.

I am doing my own STD, invites, programs, unity candle (I’m just getting a big white candle and putting pearls on it), favor tags, wedding wish cards, slideshow and reserved signs… that is all for now. Whoa… it seem like a lot when you write it all out like that.

I would love to see picture of what everyone else is doing. The ladies of the hive have such amazing ideas!

Thanks for the thread, JCM! I think it would be great to turn this into a board so everyone can share specifics of their DIY ideas.

We’re doing jelly jar votive holders (tops wrapped with twine and ribbon), staining and decorating mini chalkboards for table numbers and menu signs, planter centerpieces, big escort board on a large chalkboard (chalk names/decorations/drawings), wrapping seedling favors in something pretty and sturdy (any ideas? I love how little pieces of burlap and twine look, but the tubes from Arbor Day Foundation look so sturdy), Out of Town bags (with the requisite "Ithaca is GORGES" logo screened on), LED "throwies," ribbons to hang paper lanterns from beams, chuppah stands, programs, fabric boutonnieres, and a cake topper. Uh oh.

How do you line your own envelopes?? That’s a brilliant DIY idea!
