Any DIY Projects Yet?

I just wanted to see how many ladies started any diy projects yet. I have done some monograms in Powerpoint just to play, and done a centerpiece mock-up so far. I don't want to do things until I know for sure our colors will not change for the 50th time and I'm constantly changing my mind every time I see something on PW.

I'm starting to do my centerpiece mock up. I just need to buy the flowers. I'm also doing some rough drafts on my save the dates.

I just started my beading on candleholders and I feel confident about starting them now since I know for sure we are going with a retro Hollywood affair w/lots of bling.  I think I like them now that the glue is drying(and  after a few mishaps with the type of glue I was using)....I've just got to order more glass and I'll show you girls pics when they're done.

I started...I failed ;)  I'm moving on to ordering and very little assembling.  Kudos to the brides that are going all out ;)

My only DIY so far is my "Will you be my Bridesmaid" card, which I was so happy with & my BM's loved getting it!!! I tried doing a tissue pomander, but gave up-way tooo time consuming. On to the next project soon!!

I have a ton of ideas . . . but haven't done any of them yet.  I have some cool chandelier/hanging thingy ideas.  You can take a peek at them in my bio.  I don't really know how to describe them but I think they'd be really cool as a pretty decoration on a porch.  I also am half diying my invitations (printing out and assembling them).  Also, will-you-be-my-bridesmaids-invitaions, centerpieces, cake topper, and something else but I don't remember.  But these are all ideas for now, haven't started any.

BayBride-I really want to do a "Will you be my bridesmaid" card! Would you mind sharing a pic of yours or an example of the verbiage you used? I just don't want it to sound cheesy so I want to get some ideas :)

Yup Invites and a wedding update so far.  I also plan in making my own table runners and throw pillows for the reception.

I have started a centerpiece mock up, but not sure if I will need to make centerpieces. I visited the venue I'm interested in and they stated they will throw in the fresh flower centerpieces. The day of the wedding I dont really think I want to be decorating the venue and I really dont want others just throwing things together. Some people really dont see our visions know matter how may times you show them.  Maybe its just me but does anyone know what I'm speaking on. (venting a little I guess).
