So, I have this list.
This big, giant, nearly insurmountable list.
It's the List of Things We Still Have to Do for the Wedding- the wedding that is less than 5 months away.
A portion of this list is DiY Projects...which is also a really big list.
A portion of THAT list is DiY Projects I have Yet to Even Start. Want to see just part of that list?
We're definitely looking to do book-shaped wedding programs- ie a booklet of information that you flip through designed to actually look like a novel. (If you recall, when coming up with our wedding theme, we thought in terms of "If our wedding were a novel, what would the title be?" ...so we'd like to actually see that title on something that at least looks like a novel.) Of course, when I say "looks like a novel" I really, really wish I meant this:

In reality, our programs will look more like this:

I'm planning to sew some pretty simple fabric flower boutonnieres for the men, including both of our dads. These should actually be fairly simple, and I already have the fabric. Basically, they'll be slightly larger versions of these flowers, with safety pins on the back:

I've posted previously about my "meh" attitude towards flowers. However, in an apparent homage to high school prom, it's traditional to distinguish the MOB, MOG, and grandmothers with floral corsages. I really want to recreate this with a slightly more modern twist- flowers that will last a lifetime. I plan to make fabric rosettes and attach them to simple beaded bracelets, like those shown below, for our mothers and my grandmothers. Mr. Geek's honor attendant, if you recall, is his Best Woman, so I'll be making her one of these in the same color as the guys' boutonnieres, with her own little LEGO minifig in the center.

You've seen exactly one picture of the church. Here's another:
I'm sure there are more things on my never-ending list of DiY's, but that's all I could come up with at the moment. I think I'm gonna need a permanent caffeine IV for the next few months...
How much did you DiY for your wedding day? Do you ever feel overwhelmed by the wedding to-do list?
