Wow, that's insane, Sunny! I'm hoping I'll get one set back soon. My friend put them all on a cd but we never have time to see each other except at her work and she forgets to bring it. *shrugs* I really need to get some soon so I can send out my thank yous  Shocked I'm so bad

My Wedding is May 31st 2009. I pretty much planned on doing as much of it as I could. If I could sew better I would have made my own dress but I opted to buy one online.  Smiley

I'm doing:
invitations - done
favors
Bouquets
outdoor decor - done
centerpieces - not 100% sure on what I want

I still have so much to do and I'm glad I have craftster for inspiration because I think my brain is on overload with all the planning.  Smiley

My cake person cancelled on me today.  Sad  My wedding is in less than a month and she thinks she gave me plenty of notice for cancelling?!

arcadian, my cake person canceled the Monday (5 days) before the wedding! It's crazy how much time they think you need.
Let us know if you need any help! May 31 is coming soon.

Arcadian that is really awful about your cake person cancelling on you.  If you have trouble finding someone else then make cupcakes!  They are really easy to do yourself and much easier to work with than a big cake.  You can frost them and even just put a flower on each or some fancy sprinkles for that matter.  Good luck and congrats!  I have to wait until July 18th for my day.

That's horrible about the cake.  Where are you having the wedding?  I used to work in the bakery industry, and depending on where you are, might be able to suggest someone...

Okay, I need opinions, please!!! My FH doesn't like the wax seals for the back of envelope, nor does he like the foil stickers.  So, I'm left to design a sticker that he does like.  I've made two prototypes.  One has the letter P cut with the sissix and made into a sticker to be placed on the main sticker (confusing, I know!).   I stamped the P on the second one.  But I did a horrible job, so you kind of have to pretend the letter is straight and centered. Smiley
The sissix P: 

The stamped P:

Also, I made a prototype of the boutinneirre (I probably just butchered the spelling  Tongue).  I'm not sure how I feel about it.  If anyone has any suggestions on what to do to it or add to it, please, please, please let me know.  Thanks  Grin


I finished my $0.80 garter this weekend.  The charm is from an old earring (I lost the mate to it many years ago).


Whew!  That was a long post!  Sorry about that!
And although it is not crafty, here's a pic of my engagement ring.  I love it!  It's my birthstone.

I'd have to see your invites to give input on the seal.  Have you posted them here already?  If so, could you link me to them, please?

The bout is cute!  I'm not totally in love with the proportions of it.  My eye naturally went to the bottom/ribbon portion rather than the beautiful beading at the top.  I'd like to see less wrapping and more stem/flair at the top.  Obviously I'm partial to these, though Cheesy http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=190980.0

Well I'm not sure what the circumstances for cancelling on me were but the girl who was going to do my cake thought she was giving me plenty of time. I actually was planning to do a cupcake tier with a small cake on top...to save money.  Smiley  I would do it myself but I don't have a lot of time off before the wedding to make my own cupcakes/cake.  Luckily I posted an ad online and I have already had several responses so that will be less stress.

hardyjenni, I like your engagement ring and your garter.  Did you make the garter yourself?
