My growing list of DIY projects

Perhaps it is because I've looked up to Martha for 10 years now on what makes a beautiful wedding or maybe its my stubborn insistence to do as much of this wedding on my own as possible, but my list of DIY projects is by no means small.

Let me state right now that I DO realize that DIY means a lot of work. I am not naive, but I believe with enough time and planning anything is doable.

Now for the list:

The Ceremony
  1. Writing our vows
  2. Programs
  3. Refreshment table
  4. Signage

The Reception/Dinner & Dance

  1. Venue Decorations
  2. Table Centre Pieces
  3. Supplying cutlery, dinnerware & glassware - I've got a quote on rentals and am just comparing the price to buying the supplies at yard sales.
  4. Guest Book
  5. Cocktail 'hour' - appetizer table
  6. Mini cakes for dessert
  7. Music - one of my best friend's laptop and ipod is a strong contender for DJ; we may still hirer one though.


  1. Invitations and other stationary
  2. Alterations to wedding dress and addition of a little jacket
  3. Bridesmaids' gowns
  4. Groomsmen vests
  5. My hair fastener/veil
  6. Bouquets & boutonnieres
  7. more to come I'm sure....
