    With this planning of a destination wedding, I have really become a DIY Queen, I just can't help it!  There are so many endless arrays of possibilities!  So, I thought I would share a few with everyone!!


    These are the signs that will be going on the back of our chairs, I will be adding little hooks to the top to attach raffia or ribbon to it so they will be hung on our chairs at the reception. 





    These are the starfish that are going to hang on each of the aisle chairs at the ceremony.  I also want to figure out a way to incorporate them into the head table for the reception.








    These are our programs.  I was going to do raffia fans and attach programs to them for the ceremony but I decided to make it an all-in-one and do this instead.

            Everything looks great!  Can you share your template for the programs please?  That's my next project.  I'm tackling the place cards right now.

                Ach - I just gave up on the petal fan!  Did you cut them out yourself or buy the paper that is perforated?  I love the idea but after I cut them and started putting them together, none of the edges lines up.  I used a rotary trimmer on the sides which was fine but had to hand cut the curves top which is where the problem came about.
