Dipping my toes into the water…

May 18, 2010 at 5:43 pm (Wedding)

or paper.

I have officially decided to join the ranks as a DIY bride. While my DIY projects have been copied and slightly modified from previous Weddingbee.com bloggers, the projects are still considered DIY and I will be the crafting Queen Bee.

Project #1: Initials for chapel and reception doors


Project 2: SeaSalt wedding favors like Mrs. Corn’s Seaside Favors.


Project 3: DIY Accordion Programs with a little tear catcher inside.


Phew! I am tired just thinking about it. So…130 days to get these projects underway. So what is my plan of attack you ask? A glass of wine, a few friends, maybe a chick flick or two and lots of love. 

 Knowing me, I might just make my own veil.

What DIY projects have you undertaken? Which ones did you conquer?

    The biggest DIY project I took on was making the bridesmaids dresses! (it was pretty stressful, but more than worth it!!) -and I had good help! -I wouldn’t have gone for it if that wasn’t the case.

    …I kept a blog while I was planning too.. I keep thinking I should update it now that it’s all said and done. I’ll have to invite you to it so you can see 🙂

    I also subscribed to some wedding blogs for ideas which was pretty helpful in the longrun! …Praying for you and Joseph as you prepare for this awesome union!!!! (our goal was to prepare for the marriage MORE than we planned/prepared for the wedding, and that was honestly the best investment we could have made in the days & months leading up to our day…

    love ya, girl.
    let me know if I can help in any way!!!! ❤ ❤

      I agree, Joseph and I just finished our third premarital session. A lot of brides get caught up in the whole wedding planning process and forget about what happens AFTER the wedding. It’s called marriage and it takes 10x more work than planning a wedding and the work doesn’t involve picking out flowers.
      We have learned so much from premarital. It is probably the best money we have spent thus far.
      I would LOVE to see your blog and you should definitely do some recaps of your wedding day and continue the blog as a marriage/family/craft/cooking etc… blog.
      As for poor typing…my mom was reading my blog for the first time and she said, “I love it but there are so many errors!” Hehe…I was an English major so it’s embarrassing to have them!
