Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

My Grandma gave me this huge bag filled with bridal magazines from her ex-bridal alterations store owner friend. I am tremendously grateful for them but they shall be the reason for my demise. I think I am beginning to finally realize that in 5 months it will all be over and I can only browse the bridal magazine section but not buy. But, I am getting some really great ideas. I didn't realize how DIY my wedding was turning out to be until I sat down and wrote out everything out.

These are the DIY Projects that shall consume my life until 9/6/09 ( but for a good reason)

The Centerpieces:
We decided to go with a 14 inch hurricane vase filled with whole lemons and limes: will be assembled by me given to Lisa t Pinnacle already filled

The table Runner:
Decided my table needed a little punch of something (it was just going to be a white table cloth), so I decided that a yellow gingham table runner would do the trick. So I need to 1) find the fabric for a reasonable price 2) get Grandma to Surge 17 table runners.

Place cards:
The escort cards will be clothes pinned to ribbon ( see last post picture for a reference) and then the place cards will be Limes with a name card tied to it with yellow ribbon. So I need to print the cards and get the ribbons cut.

Sending off stuff:
I am only doing a few as we are going to have to do a mock sending off. Going to do the ribbon stick things (wow my crafty naming skills have failed me) in different kinds of yellow, green and white ribbon. Still need to get the stuff for this project... maybe will have a bridesmaid helper night.

In the room Bags:
Will have Bath and Body works goodies and homemade buckeye's waiting for our guests in room. Along with directions sites shopping and food in the area. Already having a friend make the buckeyes. so the hard part of that DIY is done but I still need to assemble the directions and such.

Recipe Bags:
I thought of this and I am pretty pumped about it. I am going to have over 200 Lemons and Limes at this shindig and I would feel absolutely horrible if I just threw them out SO... I am going to choose 4 recipes for each fruit, a breakfast, entree, dessert and a drink and give them too the guests with a paper bag and I am going to tell them to take the as many lemons and limes as they want. So I have to find a cute way to do that as well.

"This Way" Signs:
Something that isn't tacky and that is eye catching. I am thinking and old timey sandwich board with whimsical lettering in Yellow and Green of course.

Flower Balls:
I need 2 for the flower girls and then one for every other aisle. So that is aprox. 14 flower balls...

Whew that is a lot of stuff to do. I will say that I have a small army to help me, so I am confident we will conquer this never ending list of DIY. Take that MARTHA STEWART!!!!!
