I'm making the tissue poms.
I'm using the short and sweet directions of the fabulous Martha Stewart for this one, but we all know we can't live up to Martha's standards so I will be sure to share my version of the DIY process.
I wanted to do the poms for every other aisle on the ceremony. We are using chairs like the ones above in the ceremony so it will be easy for them to just hang off the end of the aisle. I called my wedding lady at my venue today to ask how many people are to a row so that I could do the math to see how many I would need. She said there is seven on the left and eight on the right (because of a side set of stairs that cuts off one side short) making it 17 per row. I did a little math and I figured if I do one on each side every other row then I would need 10 or 12 poms based on if I had 170-200 people... gosh I hope I did that math right! Haha.
I'm making the poms like the picture ABOVE not like the ones BELOW. Although I lovvvve the ones below I think a little bit more that I hear takes a LOT more tissue paper and time so I am going for the Martha ones. What's your opinion? Do you think I'll be okay with my cop-out decision?
I will leave you with a few of the pictures that inspired me to want to have this in my ceremony:
I also found this seller on Etsy, Prost to the Host, and I could get all of the Poms needed in the colors I want for about $35. Am I a total DIY failure if I even contract out this simple project? I feel like I must try to impress my readers haha... definately a back-up! She has the perfect tissue colors I would want too!
I will be dragging Mr. Mojito with me tonight to hunt down the perfect tissue paper, not sure where to go yet for that. And I will begin to work on this project and get back to you as I begin to finish... or quit. We all know I'm not that great at the DIY projects!
