Up to My Eyeballs in Wedding D-I-Y (and I wouldn't have it any other way)!

So, here's my list of wedding d-i-y (as of today's date):
  1. boutanierres for JWP and the groomsmen (have an idea)
  2. pomander balls or cones for the ceremony chairs.
  3. Ring bear pillow (see pic below)
  4. rope wrapped vases.
  5. Table numbers. (pic coming soon)
  6. Menu luminaries
  7. Bridal bouquets (8) (have a template done)
  8. Brooch bouquet for me (B got me some amazing brooches - have them all prepared to work into the bouquet)
  9. Escort cards (have an idea)
  10. Seating chart (have an idea)
  11. Programs
  12. Card Box (have an idea)
  13. Ceremony back drop (have an idea)
  14. Cocktail napkins (pic coming soon)
  15. Finalize Save the Date (pretty much done)
  16. Finalize Invitation (pretty much done)
  17. Miscellaneous stationary (have an idea)
  18. Flower girl grapevine balls (have a template done)
  19. Flower head piece
  20. Tissue balls for the reception ceiling (H is supposed to help with these)
  21. Bunting for sweet heart table
  22. cake topper
  23. water bottles (have an idea)
  24. champagne glass favors (have an idea)
  25. guest book
  26. reception centerpieces (have stuff, just need to come up with template)
The good thing is that based on my obsession with pinterest and other wedding blogs, I pretty much have an idea for most of the above.  If you guys find any cool ideas for any of this stuff, please feel free to let me know!

Ring Bearer pillow:

I used a baby onesie that I found on clearance at Target for $2.50 for the pillow cover, a ring bearer pillow that I found at Dollar Tree for obviously a $1.00, I bought the starfish at Christmas Time on clearance for $4.00, and I found the fuschia ribbon in the back of my car (so, free).  So, for about $7.50, I made this pillow which matches my wedding perfectly! (and, I didn't sew it, used a hot glue gun)

Happy Monday!
