DIY #1: STDs: sent!
DIY mock up: decor for registration table: experimenting...maybe without the lemons? had to use a lot of lemons because they kept floating to the top...neighbors with lemon tree - a plus! arrangement is very heavy though - may be a tranport issue.
DIY #2: monogram:
DIY #3: invitations...sent!
DIY #4: cardbox - done!
DIY #5: table names!!! we're gonna use all the places we visited as table "numbers"; we wanted to display some of the pictures we took while on our trips so i thought of doing a collage...i had postcard paper from papersource i didnt know what to do with (bought sporadically cuz was on sale), so i took three cards, arranged my pictures/table name, punched out holes at the top/bottome and connected them with a ribbon...i liked the way they turned out...i've only just started though...aiming for 16 tables...
DIY#6: Centerpieces - see my trial below! here are some samples:
DIY#7: Cupcake stand trial #1 (L) vs. my inspiration cakestand (R)
then decided to make it more stable with by inserting metal rods --> new one is TALLER (to cover the rods so we didnt have to cut them - no tools to cut them)! - esp, when the 2-tier cake sits at the top!!! so the new taller cake stand is 24" tall :P
DIY #9 Seating chart - "Sharing with you our travels from around the world...", to match the table names. I glued a blue jeweled embellishment on each country represented. I tried to reproduce the layout of the dining room so guest can orient themselves, with the "Let the world be your dance floor" as a prompt. So using the world map as the dance floor, i hope they can find their tables. It's hard to see in the picture, but on the very bottom of the chart, there is a flower with "You are here..." attached to it to help with orientation. I hope they get it :P...The smaller round on the bottom is our sweetheart's table. I haven't put guest names on them yet but plan on sticking them on the rounds then they are finalized - just trying to anticipate last minute changes...
DIY # 10 Menu cards - simple but DONE!
DIY #11 Ring pillow - made from scraps of my wedding gown and silk flowers from gifts wrapping!
DIY #12 Candy Buffet signage
DIY #13 Photobooth stuffs
the product after the wedding...this worked really well!
DIY #14 Ceremony program - framed. Basically ran out of time and didnt make programs - but who keeps them anyways? so did this...
DIY #15 Parasol basket - gonna have a "like some shade?" sign wrapped around ribbon...took it off already, since posting this picture after the wedding :P
DIY #16 THANK YOU CARDS - we decided to include a mini-cd of the photobooth pictures and a few group/guest pro pictures, personalized to each guest that came to the reception. everyone had a blast with the photobooth and we have SOOOOOOOOO many pictures from that so might as well distribute them. we also chose 3 pro pix of us and printed them out wallet size at costco, used a corner cutter to hold the photo and made a thank you logo (in english, chinese and tagalog) - easy peasy! we'll write a personal message on it and sign the card, of course, before we mail them!
