I’m way excited about DIY projects to come! Here’s my list (in no particular order):
- Coffee filter flowers for decor
- Center pieces
- Bouquets for me and the BMs
- Photobooth for the reception
- Pomanders for the ceremony
- STDs (still up in the air about that one though)
- Favors (Just making a book mark and donating money to a charity in memory of Fiance father)
- BM dresses (thinking about making them since they’re very simple)
- Thank you cards
- Table Numbers
That’s pretty much it as of now.I haven’t started any of it yet lol so I should get on that. As I read the boards I keep finding new things I want to do.
What’s your list look like?

1. Place Cards
I keep wondering if there should be something else I’m decorating with that I’m missing!!
