The things I want to DIY

This list keeps growing.  

I met with my mom last night to go over some wedding things.  She was practically laughing at me as I told her all of my ideas of things I want to DIY.  She thought I was over extending myself, and that I wouldn't be able to do it all.

DON'T.  UNDERESTIMATE ME.  Is what I said to her.  

And so it continues:

Kids Table.  Precious.  
Duh.  I love these.
I want to request in the invitation that everyone mail a wedding picture in with their RSVP.  I want to display them at the wedding in mason jars.  So easy. Right?  
The *NEW* candy bar...
Popcorn. yum.  From here
I love mason jars.  I have to have them hanging from chairs.  From here.
The oh-so-famous map.  My oh-so-talented uncle is going to make one for us.
this one from here.
My awesome cousin is making our cake toppers.  I hope they look like this :)
My mom is making our ring bowl.  
She's very talented with making things out of clay.  
Oh yes.  Vince says he doesn't want to wear a flower.  Ok honey, you can wear feathers, berries and dried flowers.  I love you.  From here
Yet again.  Julia has convinced me so I'm going to do them.  And they will be fabulous.  What wouldn't be fabulous with feathers involved?

Our bouquets.  This one might make me a little nervous.  I know we can do it though.  From here
These are so doable, right??

I love your idea for the mason jar with people's wedding pictures in them!!! Very cute!!!

I think you can do it. But make sure you prioritize and have a backup plan in case you get tired of the DIY!

I can't wait to see how you do the shoes!

Love your ideas and yes these are very doable! I was just going over my ever growing DIY list last night, and the fiance thinks I am crazy as well..haha.

Heather from the bar said...

mmm a popcorn bar!!! that is a great idea!!!! And you can totally do it all. If anything I would say get the flowers done by a friend or by a professional since that has to be done a day or two before the wedding and can't be pre-prepped. But from what I know about you through working together, I am confident you can do anything you set your mind to!

That flower bouquet is absolutely beautiful. I love the fiddlehead fern in it.
The popcorn bar is a great idea. We did a candy bar like everyone else, but this is so much different and unique.

These look like some great DIY projects for your wedding.

Definitely attainable and money savers if you can do it yourself.

Also, your wedding website looks great and is packed with a lot of useful wedding information!
