We're Getting Married!!!

Well, me and my guy are getting hitched in June :D It's totally official, date is set, and we couldn't be happier. Excited to put our DIY techniques to colossal work, we decided to go low key and do an at home reception and have the ceremony in a park by the house.

So, here is a list of things we plan on attempting ourselves:
  1. Stationary: Save-the-Date, Invitations, Announcements and Thank-yous.
  2. Decorations: beeswax candles hanging from mason jars in the back yard, LED Throwies, twinkle lights galore, paper lanterns etc.
  3. Flowers: Bride and bridesmaid bouquets, Groom and groomsmen boutonnieres and some cocktail table centerpieces (4-5)
  4. Corsages and misc boutonnieres: felt/fake flower and feathered thingys
  5. DJ PeaPod: My Ipod! To make a playlist and find one of those units that has a remote I can keep in my pocket for the ceremony and reception.
  6. My dress: Now I cannot make this but I have a design in the works that I would like to have custom made for me in silk jersey. Or to buy something really simple that I can embellish on my own.
  7. Birdcage veil
  8. Nix things we do not want/need to save the dolla dolla bills
Stay tuned for the fun, I have mock invites ready for assembly that I will be working on in the next week or two.
