Here's my list!
Definite DIY projects:
- "calligraphy" for invitation envelopes
- bathroom baskets
- guest book pen
- memorial of some sort for my father, who passed away in 2006
- playlist for DJ
Maybe DIY, maybe not:
- some kind of decorations for ceremony chairs?
- bridesmaid gifts and/or jewelry
- my jewelry
- jeweled hair pins for myself and/or bridesmaids
We're on a reeeeally tight budget, and sticking to it rather well so far (hooray!). We're doing a fall theme. We got print-your-own invitations with a really pretty leaf & acorn theme, so we're going to use those, but we're going to embellish them a little with ribbon. We also have to make the RSVP postcards and directions/hotel list enclosures. We'll be getting ivory card stock from an office supply store for that, and decorating with leaf paper punches and possibly some classy stickers. My FH can help with some of it, since he's really creative; hoping to get friends to help with some things, too.
I put the word calligraphy in quotes, since my mom and I (and maybe some friends) are going to try to do that, and we don't know how yet! LOL. I'm sure it will come out pretty.
The playlist is already being worked on. We're big folk-rock fans (that's how we met!).
We've got until November...I hope we can get as much done ourselves as we want to.
