My wedding isn’t until 2022. But I decided to use this down time to make some diy things: My family keeps saying I’m a little weird for making them so early but I’m normally swamped with school and work. Since Im not working I thought to utilize time. What do you guys think?

Thanks! I’m getting a lot of “wont they die?” 😂 And I feel a little bad at laughing at my family but some of other comments are more reasonable like “they’ll get dusty” some even think I already had the wedding and are upset they were not invited or that I will be having the wedding this year 😬 Anyway- I plan on keeping them in a box in my closet because I have the room. It’s actually pretty nice it fits PERFECTLY in there. I liked the idea of having all my bridesmaids make their own bouquet with the flowers I provided for them. That way each bouquet is as unique as them 😊

Hahaha! Thank you! Honestly I just really wanted to have my girls be involved I put a spread of flowers on the table and said have at it. They’re all very creative (artists), and I’m a baker. I guess I also have an eye for colors that would work together. I ordered all the flowers a few weeks before and we just spent like 4/5 hours assembling bouquets and having a really great time. I have a bridesmaid in Texas and I shipped her some of the flowers and she called us via zoom. We had a giant monitor by us so we could all be involved without traveling and exposing people.
Beautiful!! As long as you have space to store them now, then there’s no reason why you can’t work on them this early. I’ve only done a little brainstorming with my centerpieces, I won’t put them altogether until we get closer because I don’t have the space to store them where they won’t get messed up or covered in dog hair. Soon though. Working on the house we’ll be settling down in (FH is in there already, but I’m using the last of my summer break doing as much painting and cleaning as I can).
I'm the same way! My wedding is October 2022 and we're already planning our DIY projects and booking vendors. (Honestly you're making me feel less crazy for planning so far out.) Less stress when you space it out over time. These look so good!
I think it’s a great idea, I’m actually in the same boat. I haven’t started my DIYs yet I’m still making a list of what I want to DIY but I’m definitely gonna start ordering stuff to do it within the next month.
