to do list

The biggest thing looming on the horizon is getting the invites together. I'm still not sure exactly how i'm going to do it, which is making me nervous. We need to figure out what we're doing for dinner the night before so that we can finalize the text on the actual invite. Beyond that I'm going to have to figure out where I'm going to get the damn thing printed. We don't have a ink jet printer, believe it or not (only a laser), so i can't run the card stock through at home. I might be able to use his parents printer, but I'm not sure. Otherwise I'll need to get quotes from office max and some other local copy places.

Other things to do
-make, or find cake stands. We need 6.
-ever since I saw this picture on snippet n ink I've been in love. I want to have two huge flowy curtains on the french doors at the beginning of the isle that I'll walk down. I'm assuming that I'll need to find a tension rod to span the door way since I can't use nails or anything. I have some grey fabric that would be light weight enough to use. So I'll try to work with that.
-make two fun wreaths like this one (with blue, green and white fabric), to hang on the bathroom doors.
-figure out an easy way to hang all the things I want at the reception.
-make photo booth props. Examples, empty frames for posing, framed chalk boards, chocolate mustache pops (double as favors).
-make napkin rings
-figure out what we're going to use as table runners. Top choices are; butcher paper, burlap, dyed canvas, or some awesome fabric that I have yet to find.
-make a banner for the balcony over the entrance to venue with blue, green and white fabric.
-make, or find bridesmaid jewlery. I found a picture of a cuff made from buttons, and I really like it. I think that it'd be easy enough to make. Now all i need to do is find some killer buttons.

-come up with a back drop for our "photo booth". I like this one, but I can't decided if i even need one. Would the stone wall in the venue be decorative enough?
