I am planning on making my own invitations ( using cardsandpockets.com), my own cake (i've made a few ornate fondant covered birthday cakes) and doing my own flowers (either orchids in tall water filled vases or simple white rose and hydrangeas).
We are not getting married until Sept 2011 but everyone is convinced I am taking on too much. I'm always the DIYer - 2 weeks ago I made the diaper cake for my cousin-in-law's baby shower.
We're working on a $12K budget (including rehersal dinner). Is there really any other way to get what I want without going over budget? I am not stressed out about all these projects, MY stress lies in staying within the budget!
