Bridesmaids & Cake Toppers!

My goal for our wedding is to...

1. Never forget why this wedding is happening. Love.
2. Have a good time.
3. Make it affordable & resourceful.
4. Environmentally conscious.
5. Unique to us. I want people to see our wedding resemble us. Nothing generic.
6. DIY! I'm the DIY Queen and plan to put lots of my crafty skills to work over the next 6 months.

My first DIY project was asking my bridesmaids to be in the wedding.

I made them cards with bridesmaid poems on them and just because I was feeling extra girly I made doll cut outs of them. ;)

Erin Gandy - Matron of Honor, Erin Tobin - Bridesmaid, Jenny Smith - Bridesmaid, Jenna Mosley - Bridesmaid, Mitzi Tsukahara - Bridesmaid.

I can't wait for all the fun planning and girl time together with some of my favorite girls!

My next DIY project, peg people cake toppers.

Daniel did not like that I posted these on facebook. He did not want anyone else to see them (I didn't know he would take it so badly;) lol He said he didn't like the idea of someone else taking my idea and everyone making their own. He's so cute. ha ha 

They make me happy and make my laugh when I look at them though, that's how I know they're keepers!

Other DIY projects are being worked on and I will be trying to stay caught up with wedding plans as I tackle them.

Oh! I almost forgot! We have a venue & photographer & Mom and I are going dress shopping on Saturday! Wish me luck!!!!
