Doing the DIY

I’ve been hinting that I’m keen to tackle a few projects for the Gazelle wedding, but I haven’t actually said too much about what they are!  So, what is on the list?

  • Save the Dates – Our engagement photos will play a big role in our Save the Dates and I’m excited to get the design done once we’ve got our photos!
  • Invitations – I have a big vision in my head, complete with pocket fold invites, ribbon detailing, an embossed bicycle, and this amazing bicycle scrapbooking paper.IMGP2260
  • Hair Flower/Fascinator – I haven’t spotted a hair flower I love enough to purchase so I plan on making mine instead.
  • Flower Girl’s Accessory – I have a fun way for our flower girl to say “Here Comes the Bride!”
  • Programs, Menus, Table Numbers – You can bet that the embossed bicycle will be making an appearance on some of these items!
  • Guest Book – I purchased a Groupon for Photobook Canada with the intention of using it for our guest book.  Once again, I’m sure our engagement photos will play a big role in this project!
  • Photobooth Accessories? – Mr. Gazelle and I both love the idea of a photobooth, and our photographers definitely have that option!  If it fits into out budget we hope to have one.  Fun fake moustaches anyone?

There we go, that is the list so far!  I’m sure that I’ll find a few other things to add to the list along the way.

Did you decide to tackle a lot of DIY projects for your wedding?

I love your ideas!! The photo booth idea is awesome!! The mustache is so cute.

I like how you are incorporating the bicycle in your theme.

For DIY I did- invitations, unity candles, programs, seating chart, table numbers, favours, and kissing dice.

I also had pomandeurs for my flower girls- silk roses so they wouldn't destroy them!

Our wedding was very small so I did as much as I could: my bouquet, invitations, menus, thank you cards, photo album, garter, veil, favors...that's all I can think of right now! PS if you're thinking of pocket folds, you should check out a line called envelopments, they have all sorts of options for that kind of thing.

I like how you're incorporating the bicylce into your theme as well. So cute!!

I have so many DIY things I'm doing/have done..that would just take too much energy to type out, lol!

I can't wait to see how everything comes out for you!
