Tomorrow is my wedding.  It really came up fast. All I have to do today is put together my bouquets and boutonnieres.   Grin  Hopefully they will be easy to do! Knowing me I'll try to complicate it somehow.

Early congrats!!

I put up a bunch of pics over in the show-off thread (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=53280.msg3538447#msg3538447) but here are a few crafty ones...
I'm really happy with how the things I crafted came out, even though they were pretty small projects (I spent WAY more time on my STDs/Invites than on my actual wedding crafts!) I think it ended up being a really personal wedding for us because of the little touches and our own vows/ceremony/music.
What to do with garter, wedding topper, and hair ornament after a wedding? Stuff them into a shadowbox you've had lying around for years, of course!
Chopstick wedding favors--all I did for these was make the little tags for them. These are for our at-home reception this Sunday, I somehow managed to delete/lose the pictures I took of the ones we gave out to our families for the wedding, which I packed up with airplane bottles (to make everyone's ride home that much more fun!) in little wedding gown boxes.
I somehow forgot to mention before that my husband made his own wedding band out of inconel, a crazy alloy metal for high-pressure/temp environments. I think he did a heck of a job considering it's the only jewelry he's ever made (though he did make me a cable needle out of brass early on in our relationship!) and that apparently inconel is extremely difficult to machine. Clearly we are both craft crazy in our own separate-but-complementary ways.
This picture isn't of crafts, but I did love how dramatic the seascape looks--clouds were rolling in around sunset.
Now I've just got to get the house cleaned and decorated and figure out how to entertain our guests for that at-home reception...we'll start with lots of bubbly and go from there...

Is there still room on the craftalong? I just discovered this thread and oh - so much inspiration!

We're planning for Oct 24/09 - a semi-casual, semi-trendy affair. Here's my crafty to do list:

  • Save-the-dates w/ snazzy circular return labels
  • Candy bar/favor bags
  • Escort cards, Table Chart & Table Numbers
  • Flower girl bouquet
  • Birdcage veil & big-azz flower
  • My jewelry {earrings & bracelet}
  • Necklaces for MoH and 2 Groomsmaids
  • Table runners
  • Card box
  • Menus
  • Sunday brunch tickets

Hrm... I'd better get cracking! The list looks longer than I thought it was! Wink

I finally have some craft pictures to share!

Invites:


Cake serving set:



In progress pics:





As you can see I knitted the covering and then attached it, I glued the flat beads to the bottom.  I think it turned out well, now I'm debating whether to make flutes to match (fiance likes this idea, but my mom doesn't she wants to buy me flutes)

My updated list:

Invitations
- postcard rsvps
- map inserts
beaded cake serving set
Jewelry for BM's
Jewelry box gift for FG
Card box
knitted Card bag
knitted garter
cake topper, probably polymer clay
programs
escort cards
table numbers

Hello! I'm so excited about posting on this thread is silly  Cheesy

My boyfriend of 5 and a bit years, proposed 3 weeks ago and we are planning our wedding for March 20th 2010, which will be the day after the 6th anniversary of our first date!!

I love this thread so so much and its given me lots of inspiration for crafting for the wedding!!

So a little bit about what we have planned so far ('cause I know from all the posts that you ladies like to know these things  Wink)

We're having a civil ceremony (at the reception venue rather than in church), and there will be about 30 people in the day and an extra 20 at night.  We're on a pretty tight budget, so I'm trying to craft as much as I can!

Colour theme will be Chocolate and Cream, with some highlights of Deep Pink!

So now for the listed of things to craft!
- Save the Date cards
- Invitiation
- Favours
- Place settings
- Jewelry (going to be crafted by one of my best friends who also frequents craftster, katcal. She is so much better at jewelry than me!)
- Table Decorations
- possibly Cake Decorations (I decorated my Mum's wedding cake last year, but hated every minute of doing it, so I'm not sure if I can cope with the stress!)
- Thank you gifts (for Mum's etc)
- Thank you cards

Thats my to do list atm, I'm sure that I've forgotten some things tho!

I'm looking forward to posting my crafts once I get going on them!
