I got engaged on the 3rd of July 2009 and my fiance and I have set our wedding date for 10 April 2010. We have a very limited budget so I can't be too extravagant. I've been surfing the net and various craft sites for some ideas and inspiration.

I started out making my own wedding invitations, and after making 15, I gave up. The design was overly ambitious and it was too time consuming. I went to the stationery shop to buy supplies to make something simpler when I spotted these invites, which I liked, and seeing that I had already purchased silver envelopes for the original invites, I couldn't resist!

I also found this on the Martha Stewart site

and decided to give it a bash!

I initially bought white tissue paper, but bought too little. I went to several stores to purchase more white tissue paper but nobody had white so I had to settle for cream. Must say the white and cream together worked extremely well! Here is my attempt - a wreath in progress (I still need to add ribbon to the inner and outer circles). I've made 9 so far, still need to make 3 more.

My attempt:

UPDATE: 12/11/2009
I finished making all the wreaths. I painted the inner and outer circles with a light cream paint instead of using ribbon. All I need to do know is add loops so the wreaths can be hung.

those are really pretty but SO not safe.  especially with candles on top.   if those rocks are real, they will make this arrangement top-heavy and it will be very likely to fall, flinging lit candles in whatever direction it falls.

please reconsider and use something to anchor these in place (perhaps some of the other decorated stones?)

creative criticism always appreciated!
