    This board is really quiet! I haven't done any DIY yet but I plan on doing the invitations and most of the reception decorations/centerpieces.

    here are the unfinished drink cards. they will be perforated at the bottom so they can detach the bottom and give it to the bar. [img]http://tinyurl.com/ybz2str[/img] these are a strong contender in our wedding invites that i made. [img]http://tinyurl.com/yjwat3m[/img] i haven't made these yet. but i have all the same items and the same color of ribbon, so these are my inspiration. [img]http://tinyurl.com/yj255rp[/img] i am also making our "guest book" with a treasure chest and seashells, the escort cards, a driving map for Maui, and a CD with cover. I will probably add more along the way, but this is enough for now and it has saved me a lot of money! :)

    I'm doing a lot of DIY for our Dec. 19, 2009, wedding: Bouquets, corsages, boutineers, centerpieces, guest book, jewlery, STDs, Invitations, programs, Reserve table cards, menu cards.  Our colors are dark red, black and brushed gold. I'll try to post pictures this weekend when I get more time. I found some great on line sources for high quality silk flowers if anyone is interested. Yummi Candles online was also the best price for candles and they are great quality.
