I’m planning on doing a lot of DIY too! I’m not getting married for two years so for most things it’s just too ridiculous to start now. BUT, I am making a 1,000 origami paper cranes that I’m stringing together to use as my ceremony back drop. That’s a lot of cranes so I’ve already started that πŸ™‚ I buy a new pack of paper everytime I get paid and make them at work. I have 76 so far…924 to go!!!!!

I started out making loose paper flowers.  Just tons of them.  They later got turned into centerpieces and bouquets, but at the time I wasn’t sure how I was going to do that!  the first DIY I ever COMPLETED was my cardbox.  I bought the boxes at Hobby Lobby (way cheaper than Michaels’ boxes!) and used spray adhesive to cover them in fabric.  So easy and fun πŸ™‚

and btw Hobby Lobby paper section is my favorite!  Good luck!

My first DIY were my centerpieces, they’re really fancy so they took me like 4 months. Unfortunately I only have a 6 month engagement that’s over in two weeks so I didn’t get to do much DIY, booo. I’m also doing a cardbox and a few signs but then that’s it. πŸ™ oh the invitations were DIY but they were NOT fun! lol

I’ve started on my wine glass favors.  They’re glittery and gold and fun πŸ™‚ They’re similar to the champange glasses on Something Turqouise (I think that is the website). I have 3 down and 77 more to go πŸ™‚

My first DIY was the clutch purses for my bridesmaids. They are going to carry these instead of flowers.

Getting ready to do a post to share my wedding guest book!! I made one for my showers that have little envelopes inside and the little cards for guests to fill out set on a pretty tray. I am making a photo guestbook through shutterfly for our wedding day to have something a little more traditional.
