Ok, so I have a FEW pictures.
Here is my list again, with edits.
Centerpieces
Embroider handkerchief(its complicated lol)
Bouquet ribbon
Guest book
I Spy Cards &Cameras for little kids
Programs
Table Numbers
Chuppah
Bridesmaids gifts
Flower girl gifts
Garter
veil
ring pillow
Flower girl basket
Memory tree for lost loved ones
aisle runner
guest book
after party invites, and sashes for wedding party
This is my (incomplete?) veil. Its a cathedral length, and at the moment is completely plain. I have not yet decided whether to add any embellishments, though I was considering lace from my grandmothers dress which I have.


And this is a picture of my mock-up guest sign in table. I created the memory tree from two fallen branches outside (thanks unseasonal winds) and a lot of pearl christmas garlands in a beautiful red vase my grandmother happened to have. I am putting lockets with both my and my fiances grandparents wedding photos on the tree as well hung with purple velvet ribbon. It should be tres elegante!
The guest book is a black paged spiral bound scrapbook. I found a beautiful chipboard piece that says wedding memories and superglued it to the front. On the inside, since there are more pages than I have guests, I will add my save the date, invitation, program, and some pictures of my fiance and I. The black pages are great, because I bought metallic gel pens for people to write in it with. It should be spectacular!


This is just some more pictures of the wholesetup. Incidentally, that candlestick is my grandmothers, and is silver and was her mothers and was given to my grandmother as a wedding present. It will be at my wedding, with its other.


We are having an afterparty pub crawl at a bar near the reception, so here is the invite, and the back has a map

Hey guys! I hope this helps someone! I am making my own aisle runner monogram, and monogramming the tablecloth for my cake table. I made my monogram in paint, and then I used http://www.blockposter.com to blow it up. I had to trace it and color it in, but the stencil came out pretty great. Pics to follow. For now, here is the monogram I designed!



It will be painted in the colors you see here, but I colored it with black and red so it stands out a little more for tracing. Smiley

Just because I like to freak myself out, here's the list of things I'm supposed to have done by September 5th:

- Save The Dates Sent back in April, but I wasn't super pleased with them... wrong paper choice?  bad graphic?  they looked great on screen, but once printed they were kinda ugly.  Ah well.
- INVITATIONS Done and sent!
- Bride's DRESS, including overdress, -underdress- STARTED, and bloomers DONE
- Groom's KILT and TUNIC
- Bride's and Bride'sMaids BOUQUETS (group craft project with bridesmaids)
- CUPCAKE STAND (Dad's working on this, and it's actually for 2 bite brownies!)
- Ring warming RING HOLDER - a pillow or baggie, or something STARTED
- Basset hound STEED'S TABARD
- FAVOURS, which are 250ml Mason Jars filled with stuff and with pretty fabric tops - STARTED
- SIGNAGE for the bar, bathrooms, food tables, etc.
- Ceremony PROGRAMS
- Quilt squares for the GUEST BOOK QUILT
- Small TABLE for the ceremony stuff (being made by wood-worker hubby-to-be)
- Painting blue glass WINE BOTTLE water stations
- FOOD including salad, croutons, punch, etc.

Ahhhh... I hope someone else is still reading this thread to commiserate with me!

I just started planning my wedding. I haven't even decided what to make yet. There are so many ideas out there.

So far, I know what cakes I want and my best friend and I will make them. I plan on making the invitations as well. I am not sure how to decorate yet. But, the dress I like is goddess style and the cake is Grecian. So, I think grapes or olives or golden apples. But, I just wanted you guys to know I was reading your post and commiserating with you and crafting along.

Hi everyone, I've been engaged for a couple of years now and decided to start putting the gears in motion for an actual wedding. No date set yet, but aiming for next year, probably in the summertime if we can. In typical Elyssian fashion, I'm planning the small details (read: things I can craft!) instead of concentrating on the scary big things like booking a venue  Roll Eyes I'm aiming to get anything I can make out of the way early without an actual deadline which would just make me panic, that's my logic anyway. Anyway, without further rambling, this is what I can think of so far...

Save the Date cards
Invitations
Seating chart/table names/place settings
Bunting to hang over the candy buffet
Personalised tags to put on the favour boxes/bags (by giving each guest one bag/box to fill at the candy table, I'm hoping to avoid a feeding frenzy)
Fabric flowers for table centrepieces
Decorate some little jam jars with lace to hold tealights in
Cupcakes
Cake topper

This is all I have so far, sure I'll end up adding to it as time goes on though! Loving seeing everyone else's crafts, you're all so talented  Cheesy Hope the things I make turn out as nice
