I hadn't planned to, but the DIY bug bit me and so did our budget. Ha ha! I made our message in a bottle STDs and am working on the invitations (although haven't done anything with them them in weeks). I'll probably do programs and maybe menu cards and place cards. I bought a plain metal bucket for the flower girl so I may decorate that a bit.

Hi everyone!

 

I think I have most of the major things done, but I really need to start working on the details. So far I have:

booked airfare and hotel

reserved ceremony/reception location

reserved AHR location

booked photographer

sent STD

ordered dress

 

I'm not getting too stressed yet. Maybe because I don't fully realize all the work I have left!

I am...I just like doing stuff like that so its fun for me. I did my own "passport" STDs and I'm planning on making my own invitations, table-card numbers, menus. I need to get started soon actually...I havent done anything in months, lol.

I am, so far I have made our invitations which came out great they were unique and had that casual island feel (I think) and cost less than $50.00!! I am in the process of making our centerpieces, candles for the oot bags, hankies for our moms, moh, and g. mothers, which I have but I want to dye and sew a message on. I want to also make our menus, place card holders and table numbers. It sounds like a lot but I have some time and they aren't major projects ( I hope). If I can make it rather than buy it and have it still look classy and nice than I will, anything to keep costs down shots.gif

I guess I'm wondering..do you really need place cards and table numbers?? We are only having about 20 guests. I was just hoping we get enough tables to accomodate the number of guests and everyone sits where they like?? Just curious if there is a reason. We are doing an at home reception also so I guess I'll be more worried about that one.

You're right about the place cards and table numbers not being needed. I have less than 30 guests coming. After I wrote that I realized it seems pointless, for me, because of the small group and FI doesn't want them either. Ok I scratched two things off our list of to do's!

I was going to do the seating arrangements & table numbers, but then decided that I won't worry about it for the DW. I might still do it for the AHR, but we will see. I have been to a lot of weddings that didn't have seating arrangements and it always works out fine.

Yeah, I always remember I never cared for seating arrangements at weddings. Probably the only way I'll do it is if we have so many RSVP and a limited amount of room at our reception site so that way there aren't empty seats at tables not being used.
