We got married in Aug of '08, and I totally dropped the ball on posting our DIY projects on Craftster. I'm trying to redeem myself... just posted a tutorial for easy and inexpensive fan programs. Hope someone finds it useful!

My dress is almost finished!

I took it home when I visited my parents to get some mom and auntie help with fitting and am so, so pleased with the results!

Stunning!! I sold couture wedding dresses for sometime and it was always heart wrenching to have a bride that did not have the body for a mermaid style dress chose one. Your figure is perfect for the cut and you are going to be a gorgeous bride. Well done. The color is perfect for you as well, you must keep us posted with the final pictures.

Kudos on the proper undergarments as well if I might say so. Nothing sadder than a happy bride with sad breast on her wedding day.  Wink

Ha! I still have to work out some undergarment issues (as evidenced by the visible bra strap), but it's pretty close.
Thanks so much!

Okay, I guess I need to join this list.  We got engaged just after Christmas and our wedding will be July 18, 2009 in our hometown.  We rented a refurbished barn that is part of the parks system for the ceremony and reception.  It's really pretty and outside of town so we can have everything open and won't have a lot of town commotion to distract us.  We will only have about 50 guests, all family and working with a small budget.  Here's what we have planned and the few crafty items I'm making.  Oh and did I mention that I'm marrying the guy I had a huge crush on in high school.  It's so great!  I can't wait!

- One of my relatives is a minister so he's agreed to marry us and is donating his time since we are family.  We will put the ceremony together ourselves since it's not in a church or anything there is no decorating involved.  Just set up the chairs.  There is a wall of really cool murals in the barn. The photos below are taken from the park website. 

- Red checked table covers tied at corners with white lace ribbon left over from invites

- White lace placemats

- Red plates (purchased at WalMart at Valentine's day for $1 a pack - bought 2 different sizes enough for 80 and only spent $8 - what a deal)

- Blue/green glass jars for M&Ms (got Valentine's Day ones on clearance), Skittles and either mints or nuts for each set of tables (purchased at Old Time Pottery - love that place - 50 cents each for small jars and only $1 each for the tall ones - spent $9 - another great deal)

- Flower centerpieces - Finally decided the flowers for the table are wild daisies in small terra cotta pots.  Already have the flowers.  Just need to get the pots and everything else to put them together.

- Also having buckeye nuts scattered on the tables.  It's a surprise for my fiance who is a huge Ohio State football fan and thought this would be a cool way to bring that in without it staring you in the face.

- Invites - handmade by me and done - will post pics as soon as I take them

- Guest book - currently in process.  Making scrapbook pages and asking our guests to bring a picture of them with one of us or of their family and add it to the book along with a note.  I have the scrapbook paper mounted to the chipboard and now get to have the fun of embellishing each page.  This is my most expensive project.

Other Stuff
- Have my dress shown below.  Please ignore the so-so picture.  Changed what I'm wearing.  Here is a picture of me and my daughter in our dresses.  This is without all the finishing touches like shoes, jewelry, make up, hair.  I'll carry some red flowers for a pop of color and probably have my daughter carry a red and white bouquet. Will have to see what I can find.

- Wedding bands - already purchased and put safely away.  Ended up not being able to find a band to go with my engagement ring so I'll wear it on a different finger and we got matching wedding bands.

Now for the fun things we are doing.

- Food - pizza from the local pizza shop which is my fiance's favorite pizza.  It's going to be a riot to have the pizza delivery guy show up with the food.  Everyone will love it since they are all pizza fanatics.  Plus we plan on having a salad and a brand of potato chips that is also local and a favorite of both families.

- I'm going to ask family members to make pies instead of doing a cake.  We are having a "pie"  reception - get it - pizza pie, pie for dessert.   Smiley

- Music - still undecided on what I want to do for walking up the aisle.  I do know though that after we are pronounced man and wife I want the Ohio State fight song to play.  It's to be a surprise for my fiance and again, everyone will get a kick out of it.

Wow!  Didn't think the post would be this long but that's everything in a nut shell.....or should I say Buckeye nut shell!  I'll post other pictures as I get them.  Comments and/or suggestions appreciated.

Pheww, after taking a couple of days to read through all the posts it's now my turn to add to the list  Grin  I will be getting married on 4th September 2010, so I have plenty of time to plan and craft. 

We will be getting married on the beach and will be having a beach/island/hawaiian themed wedding. I want relaxed, casual and no frills Smiley  I've booked a steel drum band for the ceremony and a DJ for the reception who will be playing reggae music (I loooveee reggae).  I've also got a traditional Australian Aboriginal dance group and Torres Strait Island dance group performing (all for free as they are family woohoo)
I've got most of it planned already and just scouting venues. 

Here's my to do craft list
- Message in a bottle invitations
- Favors (bathsalts and sea shells in round cork topped jars)
- Bouquet (Frangipanis)
- Wedding leis (Frangipanis for the girls and kukui nuts for the boys)
- Centerpieces (still deciding)
- Cake (which I will get made but will do the fondant myself, topped with sea shells)
- Program fans
- Drink bottles (for cocktails at the ceremony)
- Wedding dress (I will be wearing a sarong style dress so it should be easy and I need 2 of them as I know I'll be getting one wet during the photos)
- Bridesmaid dresses (sarong)
- Grooms outfit (linen drawstring pants and loose shirt)
- Groomsmen outfits
- Flower girls and page boys outfits

Can't wait to actually start crafting.....
