Invitations - Hand made - took blooming hours and hours but they were perfect for what I wanted. They were all vintage inspired trifolds, and were held together with twine and buttons. Inside, as well as the actual invite attached to the middle there was 4 inserts - RSVP; about the venue; the activities happening all weekend; and general info. Reckon the 30ish I made came to about a tenner - less than the price of 3 being made for me. Go me!
I Spy List - I loved this idea :) Every person/couple/family will have a list of photo opportunities that the photographer might miss. Informal snapshots. I've made sure at least one person in every apartment has either a mobile phone or digital camera, really didn't want disposable camera's. Then I just finally set up an Instagram account - suzannes_tribe if you want to follow and see the end result of all the planning at the beginning of May. No idea if we'll get much response, but it only took a couple of hours to make them, and all crafting stash I already had, so not a lot to lose.
Involving Guests - This was essential for me and Jeff. We really wanted for people to feel involved with the whole event - like family not just invited guests. We managed to find something for most sets of people to do - and when I had run out of ideas a couple of peeps even offered a reading - a walk - bake - made me feel very touched :)
