Signs - Jeff is planning to make - thanks to me asking him! - some wooden painted signs for directions. Want a white-washed, distressed look, not all glossy and new. Then I can use some big stencils I've had in my stash for years to write the signs. Teamwork :) Made Orla a sign to hold and you can find the photo under F is for Flower Girls ...... or you could just look at the picture I've uploaded below :) And I need to paint another frame for the photo booth so peeps can write on a blackboard and hold up the messages - knowing some of my friends, this may be an idea I live to regret! Although, I love the one in the collage of lyrics from songs :)
Save the Date bookmarks - made of course by yours truly with the help of my crafting supplies :)
Sleeping arrangements - Oh. My. God! Next to finding a dress that the Oldmaids all liked, working out where everyone was sleeping had to be the next most frustrating thing! It keeps changing but once I've put pen to paper and drawn up the plan then that's it!! Well, when I say 'pen to paper' I actually mean paint to sheets! I have got 2 single sheets - £1.00 each at a charity shop - well, buying new and painting them made absolutely no sense! - and plan to paint a plan of upstairs and downstairs on each and then add who's sleeping where with stick men and the heads cut from photographs of, wherever possible, embarrassing photographs of the guests! This is for the ground floor, first floor still to do, once I've put it through the washing machine and tried to get rid of the red paint I spilled all over it!
Shoes - already blogged about them, but here's a photo if you're a new visitor of the footwear for my oldsmaids and me - and no, you don't need to ask, yes, I did make them myself :)
Sweetie bar - I've amassed a big selection of glass jars and containers. A couple were an extravagent new purchase, but most were charity shop and car boot finds. Local wholesalers for the sweets and I've given some name holders a vintage them by covering in small strips of an old book. Here's a few I've done in the past ...
Service - Writing the whole thing myself, and as mentioned I haven't even started and with only a week to go really think I should be making that a priority LOL!
