Hah! I love it! We did tons ourselves: invitations, programs, placecards, wedding favors, slideshow, table numbers, and other bits and pieces. Enjoy the pics!

We just printed what we wanted on to pieces of vellum and used double stick tape to wrap them around cheap glass cylinders. Then we wrapped ribbon around the bottom. They looked really nice!

Design/print yourself – place cards:

I collected wedding pictures from our married guests. Then we printed them out on petal invitations and posted them onto a piece of foam core. We displayed them in chronological order – it was a HOOT to see everyone’s pictures!

We live in San Francisco, but got married in Arkansas (where I’m from), so we used pictures of different SF scenes on our table numbers:

Design/print it yourself wedding programs from a template at Michaels:

For our favors, my mom made jelly. Then we used old fashioned wax seals to attach ribbon to them. We used an “F” as the wax stamp that left an impression as the wax cooled. They turned out really well and it was something people could actually use!
