DIY Wedding Projects

43 days until THE DAY.

I have so much to do, but I won't really be able to get going on my DIY projects until I get home in March. I don't have the capacity to lug all the projects from WI to CA, so I'll have to really be good about time management.

My DIY To-Do List:
  1. Birdcage card holder: to add moss, rhinestones, flowers, sing
  2. Wine Bottle Table Numbers: to wrap around the wine bottles with ribbon
  3. Menu/Programs: to place on each plate to add more color to the white/ivory linens and dishes
  4. Escort Cards/ Favors: make cards to go inside and ribbon to wrap it up
  5. Birdcage centerpieces: I was thinking about placing candles, branches/twigs, moss balls, moss and flowers inside. Only going to make ~15.
  6. BM Necklaces: making some vintage-inspired necklaces with rosettes. In the process of it now
  7. Table Runners: ?? Need to make these when I get home to CA - not sure if I'll have time!
  8. Moss monograms: almost done :)
  9. Moss "P"s to hang on the gate: larger cursive "P" similar to logo cut from poster board
  10. The Wishing Board: to post up the wishes and advice that friends and family wrote. Probably use a moss covered corkboard or a foam poster board.
  11. Head Table Backdrop - in moss?
  12. Ceremony "arch": use cheap pots, cement and wooden poles - DIY Chuppah
Ahhh! So much to do!

Bridesmaid Gifts - Success!

So I gave the girls their gifts (both the BMs & the honorary BMs) during my Bachelorette Weekend in Park City. (Best weekend EVER!)

The girls loved it and were impressed by my DIY skills ^_^

Wish I had a photo to show, but it was around 2am after the bridal shower, so we were all exhausted.

Anyhow, love the girls and love their gifts ^_^
