amigurl55, that's very cute and it fits all of your criteria!  How are the stems attached?

Do more of what makes you happy.

sweets- thanks!  In the pic, I'm just holding them in my hand.  But I'm going to trim the stems, wrap them with wire and floral tape, then wrap them with pretty pink ribbon.  My bouquet has 7 flowers and some onion grass stems, and I'm going to make a smaller one with 4 flowers for the bride's maid.

I told you: I only wrote that poem to test my printer!

Everyone has so many wonderful ideas posted here, that I've been encouraged to craft my own wedding!

Save the dates

We took the picture ourselves by balancing the camera on a tree and had them printed on shutterfly.

I broke down and bought one. I figured I was busy enough already that sewing my own wedding dress might put me over the limit.

Still to come...
- Location! (I should know for sure tomorrow)
- Invitations and RSVPs
- Centerpieces (I'm thinking of going with the paper topiaries listed earlier)
- Decorations (Martha's tissue balls of course)
- Guest Favors (I'm thinking sandalwood fans since it will be HOT!)
- Garter
- Veil (I've decided on a birdcage veil, but I can't decide if I'm going to make it or buy one off of etsy)
- Bridesmaid Gifts
- Bridesmaid jewelry

The whole clan is getting into the crafty wedding-ness too. My fiance is designing and building the website. My aunt is doing all the flowers and my FMIL is making the cake.

I'm really excited to get started!

Okay-- I've lurked on this thread enough....  after a bit of an absence on craftster due to a job change I make my return to do some wedding crafting.

First things first.  I've been engaged since Dec 07 and since then I have

1) made a (simple) blog http://richardsongoldberg.blogspot.com
2) bought a really cheap glitter shoes from Target
3) braved the "Running of the Brides" to buy a wedding dress
4) Clipped enough bridal magazines for ideas that I now have a 3 inch "inspiration binder"

I plan on making my...
*save the dates, invitations, programs, escort cards, announcements, thank you cards,
*sew the chuppah, veil/headpiece, and garter
*make the centerpieces, guest book, card box
* be crafty with bridesmaid jewelry and gifts, groomsman cuff links

I'll leave the cake, catering, and the flowers to the professionals.  We will get a professional photographer but we'll purchase digital rights to make our own books with either snapfish or mpix, or get really ambitious and scrapbook it.

By the way we are getting marring Nov 8 2008.

(Going to a tasting tonight to determine if we are booking a particular site/caterer tonight)

HHJamie, love the dress! It is very elegant and what a steal! Even making my own dress isn't going to cost me that little... although it's a good deal cheaper than the designer dress I was tempted by in the bridal mags! Over ten grand for that baby!

I seriously suggest the dress I bought. It so soooo comfortable and such a good price. The back is even prettier!

I wouldn't even know how to begin to make that!

Haha, I wouldn't either! Luckily my mother is a pro dress maker, so she's got it all under control!

HHJamie, that picture is so cute. it looks professionally done!

I FINALLY finished my second bridesmaid wrap.  Jeebus this one took forever.  Hopefully the next two go a little faster or I'll never finish them in time.  here's the wrap in action

and here is the stitch pattern up close
