oh how i wish i could buy an extra dress for dancing at the reception, so gorgeous!! Melissa Sweet

Well now that I have for sure locked in to DIYing our STDs, I'm thinking about what other ideas I've had to keep things cheeper and creative. This is what I have so far...

-save the dates, finish: end of Jan?
-wood sign to point towards reception (2), finish: june?
-custom sparklers, finish: june?
-lace runners for rectangular tables, finish: may
-hanging votives for the trees, finish: june
-cones to hold flower pedals for throwing, finish: may
-advice jar, finish: june
-out of town bags, finish: july
-totally faking my calligraphy, finish: may

other people DIY:
-carved wooden cake toppers (jim)

to do/decide:
-birds nests and hurricanes as centerpiece decor?
-use peaches as escort pieces?
-other possible signs (games, photo booth, dessert table, etc)
-do we still want barrels as tables? i'm thinking no currently
-ice cream?
-bridesmaid dresses
-sign catering contract, finalize menu, and pay $ down
-sign music contract and pay $ down
-finalize guest list!!!!!
-make sure there is enough hotel rooms reserved
-figure out guest transportation or valet??
-figure out rental situation
-figure out timing of day

this is just some.....of many

I have perceived that to be with those I like is enough,To stop in the company with the rest at evening is enough, To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough, To pass among them, or touch any one, Or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment what is this, then? I do no ask any more delight. I swim in it, as in a sea.
-Walt Whitman

I seriously love this gown. The ruffles cascading down the back and the length! Such a great second dress!
