Those are really cute! I was glad to see they sell them in lesser quantities -- not just in packs of 72! I may be inspired myself...

btw, I like your idea, zeenobia, for a chuppah crocheted by all your friends and family, that's really sweet!

This thread is super cool! My fiance and I have set our wedding date for 10 April 2010 - and this date is approaching fast!
We still haven't found a suitable reception venue yet, but hope to get married in my fiance's church.

I'm busy making some pew decorations for the church and I've started sewing my own wedding dress. I bought some tissue paper and am aiming to make something like this:

I need about 12 wreaths - so that's about 240 paper flowers.

To do (for the moment):
Make ring pillow
Sew garter
Design invites
Make guest book

We've been trying to htink of ideas for our save the dates and I think we just came up with a possibility...turning a photo into a postcard which really all it is is turning it over putting a stamp on the back, addressing it, and writing a message. 

I was wondering if anyone knew an application I could use to write the actual date and a little message on the photo itself.  We have a mac and use iphoto but I don't think there's a way using iphoto so I was wondering if any of you creative people knew how to do it. 

I would love some help!  Thanks!

CaveWoman, have you tried Picnik?  I've never actually used it, but a few of my friends are addicted!  http://www.picnik.com/

Here is a pic of one of the wreaths I made - it's still a work in progress (I still need to add ribbon to the inner and outer circles)

and here are the invites I bought:

Sweets4ever...thanks for the idea.  I'll check it out.  I've tried it with photobucket but when I go to kinkos to print it out some of the picture gets cut out and I have to shrink it which then gives me white siding that I'd rather not have.   Undecided
I'll try picnik next!

{Yay!  I passed Spanish, so now I can plan craft without guilt!}

We decided that we loved the idea of using books as out centerpieces.  Several friends that I told all had the same reaction..."How perfect...that's totally you and Aaron!"  This was the initial inspiration:


I came up with the idea just in time, too.  Last weekend was the WMNF Holiday Bazaar...a used book and music sale to support the local community station here in Tampa.  (You can listen online here... http://www.wmnf.org/ )  So we got some great-looking old books to add to ones that have special significance to us, and we supported the commercial free station!  When I do some mock-ups, I'll post pics.
