I'm marrying the man who introduced me to craftster, so naturally I need a craftster thread to document all my DIY-wedding-awesomeness!   Cheesy

A bit about us and our wedding:
We met in high school, in the limo on the way to his prom (he's 1.75ish years older) with different dates.  We hardly spoke that evening, but later in the month when me & my date broke up, a mutual friend gave me his instant messager screenname.  We talked online for a long time, eventually started dating, dated for 4ish years, and now here we are!  Our wedding reception will actually be held in the same place as his prom. Smiley  We're both still in college (although he's thankfully almost done and I'm about to start my student teaching) so we're definitely trying to work on a budget!  Our wedding colors are a dark tealy-blue and ivory & we'll have 150 - 200 guests.

Wedding DIY Projects Done:
-Co-MOH/BM shirts (pictures below)
-Save the Dates (pictures below)
-Bouquets - coffee filter roses - 100/100 roses finished, 7/7 bouquets constructed (pictures of roses below, completed bouquets page 2)

I just ordered our Save the Dates a minute ago!  We're getting them from Sam's Club - 38 cents each.



They're FAR greener on here, I don't know why... They're more blue in real life.  Fiance & I designed them in photoshop last night.  I'm really happy with them!  I'm hoping to use the C & H in other wedding crafts as well.

Here's some in-progress shots of the coffee-filter roses!  They're a lot of work, but so worth it.  My mom & my sister/Co-Maid-of-Honor have been cutting out rose pieces like crazy and I've been putting them together & painting them every chance I get!

From left to right: an unpainted rose, still wet, dried & curled


And a partial bouquet!  Co-MOHs and BMs will have 10 roses each; I'll have 20 in mine.  I'm also planning on adding crystals a la Sweets4ever's bouquet.

I made these shirts to ask my cousins & sister to be my maids of honor & bridesmaids!  I made a stencil from a plastic folder & used Tulip's new spray fabric paint.  They came out great & the girls were so excited!  I made a Bride shirt for myself too.

This is minus 1 Co-MOH & 1 Bridesmaid:



Here are the shirts all wrapped up & ready to give! They all say "Will you be my..."

I think the pink-tinted edges really make the project.  They look real!

I'm so glad you like the pink tips, katiebread!  They were the one thing I wasn't quite sure about yet. Smiley  I get really excited any time anyone says they look real haha.

mich_p - Go for it!  They're so worth it.  I'm info any craft with near-instant results haha.

I'm excited to meet a wedding-date-twin, Molly.Connelly!  You're the first person I've run into with that date!

well I am getting married in Vegas and so it is cheaper to get married on a weekday than it is on the weekend.
my fiance actually knows a girl who is getting married the same day as us, (but she's getting married in the town we live in and plus we don't exactly have the same circle of friends so no worries/drama there)
