I recently read that DIY weddings are out. So 2011.
I was all about that idea last week! Now, as my wedding approaches a quick 39 days, my shopping carts at etsy have begun to bulge and may soon break…the bank. My philosophy of letting others do it for me and putting it on the card is plain not going to work.
Thankfully, my mother has kindly and effectively intervened. She called on a few sweet, family friends to each make little parts of the reception decor. One’s making a ring-bearer pillow, one’s making a guest book, one is making a banner, and so on. It’s so gracious and lovely.
Of course, I’m now realizing that I’m going to have to pull my weight and make a few things, too.
My PT cruiser is now bulging with things I just “picked up” at Lowe’s today. I’m supposed to stir, sand, paint, nail, and design a bunch of intimidating buckets of paint, wood, and paper into something beautiful? Outside in the 110 degree Louisiana heat? Oh, boy.
Since I’m not a crafty gal, I’m going to have to be headstrong and determined instead. That, I am.
Here I go.
Pictures to come, if I dare.
**Note: I did, in fact, make a few crafts and order a few others for the wedding. I do, in fact, have pictures. I will post them at a later date.
