Sunnydays I love the invitation! It's beautiful!

So, I haven't posted in awhile because it was so hectic right before the wedding.  We got married a month ago now, but we got pictures back yesterday, so I have to show you what I ended up making.

Masks (favors)

I molded 160 masks, and my family and friends helped decorate them.

Origami Lotus Centerpieces

A couple of friends, my sister and I made 40 of these, with 22 petals in each flower (880 petals).

Table numbers and seating cards

Flower girl dresses

I really enjoyed doing the work, and it helped our budget!  I ended up cutting my list in half, but the things we didn't do (like menu and program) weren't missed.  At one point I thought about doing the cake myself, but I'm glad I decided against that! 

If you can include your friends and family in the work, it helps.  We had two parties for decorating masks, and it was so much fun.  If you think you can't let go of control over your projects, just make sure that the basics are what you want, and everything will be fine.  I had to laugh when my father-in-law took a pretty mask and made this:

I'm going to post more pics on the Love your Wedding thread.
And we have non-crafty pics on flickr.

Hello everyone.  There are some great ideas in this thread, thanks everyone for sharing  Smiley

I'm getting married next year.  We haven't set a date yet but it will probably be either the end of September or the beginning of October.  I'm really excited about all the crafting I'm going to be doing for it  Smiley
Does anyone have any cheap and easy ideas for seating?  As we are on a very tight budget I think we'll end up having the reception at our flat and I want everyone to be able to sit down whilst they eat and drink.  I looked into hiring chairs but the quotes i've been given so far are pretty expensive.

So, now that my wedding is over, I get to craft for my bffs wedding. She was the MOH for mine.

Invites. Please feedback me! These are my 3 favorites. They are going into black folders with red matting.




Which do you all like best? What should I change?

Personally, I like the bottom one the best - the font is clearly legible and the background flowers are gorgeous.

I also like the background of the top one, but the font doesn't seem to be as clearly readable (maybe just because it's smaller than the paper copy would be and its on a computer screen).

But all in all, I think the bride should choose Smiley

My feelings on these:
The back ground in the first one seems too cluttered, maybe it would be better if the two sides of text were equal in width. The second one is super cute and more whimsical than the others. I think the last one has a beautiful background but the simple text (the names are okay) is too simple and kind of boring, especially since the right side of the background is white. So I guess my favorite is #2 but I don't know how it'll look with red and black matting.

My favorite is definitely the second one.  These caught my eye since my sister's name is Tara Nicole!
