I'm just gonna make one thread for all of my crafty wedding stuff, so I can keep track of it and all that good stuff.

My wedding is May 23rd, and I've got most of the big planning done at this point. I just started actually MAKING things, though, since it's about that time. Cheesy

General details: We don't really have a theme. Our wedding will be in a public park, in a little amphitheater (very little- holds 100 people max) and the reception will be in the neighboring GIANT picnic shelter (holds 300! Shocked). Our colors are sage green, brown, cream, and black.

My mom is making my dress (sage green two piece, with one long skirt for the ceremony and one shorter one for the reception so I don't fall all over myself). Bridesmaids are wearing brown dresses of their choice. Groom and groomsmen are wearing black kilts and black dress shirts.

Food is hors d'oeuvres made by various friends, and cake is fancy filled cupcakes baked by a friend of my BIL. Photography is by a friend as well.

I'm doing everything else myself. Decorations, centerpieces, invitations, flowers, the whole bit. I'm also knitting myself a wedding clapotis out of cream colored malabrigo silky merino, which is LOVE.

On to the craft photos!
So far all I have completely done is the lino block for the front of the invitations. The invites will have this image on a sage cardstock background, and inside will be a cream colored paper insert with a love quote and all the basic details.



The image is pussy willow, which will be our central flower (I'm not a big flower person, but I love pussy willow). The initials are (duh) our first initials.

I've also purchased the dried portion of our flowers- pussy willow branches, curly willow, willow eucalyptus (see a pattern? the park is full of weeping willows, too), and sarracenia. We'll have some fresh ferns and hopefully calla lilies for the bouts and my bouquet.


UPDATE April 15, 2008:
Wedding is really rushing up, now! Not much left to do- just centerpieces, flowers, and other decor.

Our invitations have been completed and sent! Here they are Smiley



The inside top quote is from Antoine de Saint Exupry, the author of Le Petit Prince. It says, if you can't read it, "Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction."

Here's my wedding wrap- a clapotis, in Malabrigo silky merino in "natural". It's also the background in the invite photos Wink

No pics on me yet, not til the wedding. Tongue

Another update- my mom made my card box, here.

I'll update when more is done!

I also love pussy willows.  Too bad I'm not having a spring wedding.  Can't wait to see your invitations!
