Mine consist of

  • Invitations (done, thank goodness!)
  • Rehearsal Dinner Invites (working on)
  • Programs (working on)
  • Menu’s
  • Escort Cards
  • Flower Girl Basket
  • Pew Decorations
  • Small centerpieces

I guess thats all, it doesn’t seem like a huge list, but it sure does take forever to finish things! My list kept growing too, I had to take a step back from certain things, like planning to bead my own veil, it was just causing unnecessary stress!

    @ amnystik oh thank goodness somebody else has a huge list like I do! I just posted a question on this board asking if anyone thinks you can “overdose” on DIY as I am feeling a bit like I might be too ambitious, but I feel better now, and hey we’re month twins too so we have plenty of time!

    @panda_in_England I for sure know how you feel… BUT I’m plenty sure we can totally wreck shop and get it done!

    I don’t think you can over do the DIY as long as you can get them to tie together in theme/color… DIY are such personal touches and I LOVE the uniqueness of them!

    WOO HOO to all us DIY brides! =)
