    Maybe something just a little different for programs!! Maybe you can have water bottles and instead of "programs" have the "program" on the water bottle label instead of the personalized monogramed water bottle wrappers.

      good morning, fellow brides...

       

      THANKS for the input..you guys have helped me tremendously...i'm pretty sure i'm going to go the traditional route..now i just have to design the darn thing...woo hoo!

       

      ok, so for today's post...i'm doing custom confetti...yes, ladies, confetti...and it has to be custom because EVERYTHING must coordinate...  so, with the help of martha stewart's seahorse and sand dollar punches and her genius heart punch..i've started punching out confetti...each guest will have a vellum envelope full of confetti on their seat at the wedding...to shower us after we're announced as husband and wife...take a peak!!

      this is yet another inexpensive way to customize the wedding...as always, until next time, happy planning!!!

       

      R~

        hmm, that's an idea...

         

        however, i'm skeptical of having water bottles during the ceremony though...afraid guests would be caught in photos mid-swig...

          Hi!  I'm not sure that we've met yet ; )

           

          I started reading your thread last night, and when i got to the part about your stuff appearing on Google, I freaked out a little bit and called it a night!  I agree with Tori...I love these traditional programs.  How the heck did you make that beautiful bow...is it a separate attachment, or did you wrap it around and tie it like that?  I would like to make some barrettes for the flower girls using bows like that!

          i need some help...i'm going back and forth about my program..should i go the passport route or should i do something a bit more traditional...

           

          plus the passport is ALOT of work..initially i was going to do a single 8.5 x 11.5 sheet of paper doublesided but then i wasn't really 'in love' with the concept..plus i feel like its so 'destination wedding' and i didn't want to keep doing the 'norm'...so here's a mockup of a program, i'm thinking i may incorporate into my stationery suite.

           

          i need ya'lls opinion...passport program or more 'traditional' program?

          please share your thoughts, suggestions, recommendations, etc..i could really use the help...

           

          oh and here's another 'taste' at what's included w/my stationery suite...hope ya'll like it.

          ok..i'm headed back to finish up some DIY projects....

            OMG,

             

            Let me say that you are simply "doing the damn thing"  I am only through page 7 and am taking notes and wondering if I should back to the drawing board.  Simply Amazing from the engagement to the planning!  Great work.

                good evening, MJKH...

                 

                i DIY everything myself...except beads...but all bows, etc are hand-tied...the bow that you see in the pic is a double knotted bow..i've been perfecting bows for years...ya'll oughta see my Xmas giftwrapping..my kids are like, for real?  mom, you should REALLY go into business..but i don't...instead i do stuff for 'us'...

                 

                this whole planning process has allowed me to tap into my creative side..thanks to ideas found online and the things that i think are pretty...or elegant..or simply beautiful for a wedding...yet simple enough to DIY..

                 

                thanks for the input on the program...i'm pretty sure i'm going to go the traditional route..and i can't wait to unveil what i come up with.

                 

                welcome to the forum and i hope my thread can be inspiring and helpful...let me know if i can be of any help.

                 

                as always, happy planning!!

                    Starfish took the words Right Out of my Mouth!!! Rashedah you are simply AMAZING!!! Your talent is unmatched. I am loving all of your DIY projects. They turn out so spectacular, who could blame you for adding more and more...I am looking forward to seeing your traditional programs (yay) and future projects...Congrats on your intimate ceremony btw...And THANK YOU for taking the time to share all of your inspirations with us...currently my clock says 8:22am and I am "DYING" to go to Michaels right now b/c I truly feel inspired! Your guests are going to be in AWE...

                    Second of all... your projects are amazing - as you've been told and I have high respect for a fellow detailed oriented bride, I share your "type A" if you will, meant in the kindest possible way

                     

                    Third of all... if I could quote every single picture I loved I'd probably win an award for the longest post EVER. So I'll focus on these lovelies below.  I found this starfish punch in Michaels the other day and purchased it with intentions of doing exactly below for my AHR.  Best part of being a DIY'er with an AHR I get to design two parties with different feels to them...

                     

                    Congrats on all of it and like everyone else... I can't wait to see what tomorrow's post will bring :)

                      you're so kind...

                       

                      i'm loving this entire process...and i'm up EARLY working on more DIY projects...i'm cutting and pasting and putting it altogether.

                       

                      if you head to michaels, be sure to go online and print off the coupon..this week there's a 40% off any regular item coupon AND if you have multiple locations in your area..head to ALL of them and use that bad boy for amazing savings!!!  if you don't have a home printer...make a note of the coupon's barcode and give that to the cashier to take advantage of the savings!!!

                       

                      until next time, happy planning!!!
