Intro - June 2012 Bride

Hey girls!

My name is Lisa and I will be getting married to Mike on June 8, 2012.  We are trying to go untraditional with a lot of things (outdoor non-religious ceremony, no veil, small reception, groom knows what the dress looks like and helped me pick it, etc) so I will be looking for fun ideas that will really help to personalize our ceremony and reception.

We have the reception venue (Mayernik Center), officiant (Rev Mark), photographer (Mike's Aunt), wedding dress and almost caterer selected, so we are well on our way to having many of the "big items" crossed off of the list.  We are hoping to be able to get a lot of DIY advice and ideas also, as he will be studying a lot in the upcoming months and I am trying to find things to occupy my time.

Thanks in advance for all of the potential help that you all will have!!  Best of luck in your planning!!  Smile

    Hi! Welcome to the board and congrats on your engagement! I am also a June bride to be. I also have a lot of DIY projects done and am always looking for more ideas to make our day unique.

    Some of the things I have done for DIY are personalized name hangers for bridesmaids, letter personalized wine glasses for bridesmaids, banners for the reception, and some projects with an overall "A Way With Words"/personalized/monogram theme. I get a lot of ideas from Style Me Pretty and also Etsy... I see things and then figure I can make them myself! Let me know if you want to see any pics.

    We're here if you need anything along the way!

    Welcome and congrats! Sounds like you're moving right along with planning - and we're also using Rev. Mark.

    If you get the chance, post pics of your dress!  And quite a few of us are taking on DIY, so hopefully we will be able to help there too.
