So, I'm getting married to a wonderful guy this summer, and it seems like there are a lot of other people planning on getting married sometime in the next year.
I thought a wedding swap would be a nice way to take a break from planning or fill in those wait times when you feel like you should be doing something, but you've checked your checklist 30 times and can't find anything.
Anyone else interested?

Exchanging crafts. For this one, I was thinking of wedding items, which could include stuff for the wedding, or for the rehearsal, or bachelorette parties, even.

Yes! I would definetly be interested, though I'm getting married in May '07, not '06, so I don't know if I qualify. We're on the tightest budget in all of history so I thought I'd give myself a couple extra planning months to sort things out.

Anyone who has their wedding in their sights can be included.
I'd love to organize it. I'm just finishing off the Amelie Swap, but I was thinking that sign-ups could start in a week and last for a week or 2 (it would be Feb 22 to Mar 1 or Cool and then three weeks of crafting time.
I was also thinking that we would need lots of questions, like What colours are you having (if you are)?, What event would you like something crafted for (wedding, rehearsal, bachelorette party, getting ready, planning help)?
Anything else you'd like asked?
Are the dates okay for people?
I think it would be really fun, even if it were for a small group.

Anyone still interested? I'd still love to plan this. I'm thinking to start signups this week sometime, if there is still some interest.

Okay, look for signups on Friday, which would be March 3rd, and probably lasting a week or two.
Some questions I'm thinking of are wedding colours, wedding theme, wedding date (and maybe try to pair up people whose wedding dates are close together), anything you'd really like (or not like).
I'm thinking sendouts can be by April 18th, which is a tuesday and right after Easter.
Any questions you'd like to add?

That's a good one.
I was thinking that indoor or outdoor might be a good question, too.

Sorry, I had a bit of the flu the past few days, so I haven't posted the signups. I will post here as soon as they are up.

Signups are here! I made them for two and a half weeks, and then three weeks of crafting time.
