DIY List

Trying to get straight all the stuff I want to make in some capacity. In no particular order:

- Veil
- Bridesmaids headpieces?
- Shhhhsecret
- Boutonneires for groom, groomsmen, ring bearer, parents & grandparents (corsages where applicable, obvy.)
- Bouquet
- Bridesmaids bouquets
- Ring pillow
- Flowergirl basket or something
- Flowergirl headpiece
- Centerpieces
- Guestbook of some sort
- Escort cards or chart
- Table numbers
- Tablecloths & Settings? (Not sure what we're doing with these)
- Favors
- Invites
- Website
- Menu- labels for food, etc
- Ceremony backdrop
- Aisle runner or hangy things or something
- Various reception decoration- garlands, wall thingies, etc
- Figure out lighting
- Cake plates, etc
- Wine & beer labels
- Welcome basket type goodies? (I don't know if we'll do this since pretty much all of our guests will most likely be staying overnight but who knows)
- Cake toppers
- Design cake
- Card box
- Garter
- Photo "booth"?

I'm sure I'll think of more. Eek. It falls to me now to figure out which of these I can do while I'm here in Portland and bring/send home without any damage befalling them. And I need to commit to a decorating theme. There are just too many options, man. My mother and sister are (I think) checking out the venue tomorrow so hopefully there'll be pictures and I can get a better idea of what will look good there, and whatnot.

At least I decided against making my dress (though some days I wish I still had, because it would give me major crafty cred. But I probably would've gone insane.)
