Wedding stitching dilemma

I am hoping for some advise from other stitchers to a new dilemma I have. In my side bar "To Do" list I have had Helen and Dave's wedding in June 09 which I had planned to do a framed picture for. I decided on Bent Creek's I Do. Now on Saturday her brother Phil came over (the one who joined the RAF in the summer) and told us him and his girlfriend Nicky have booked their wedding for March 09. At first I thought well I'll just do them a nice card as I haven't as much time and as he is in the RAF they may be posted all over the place and may not want to keep taking framed pictures etc all over with them. But what if they are offended because I will still do "I Do" for Helen!! Should I do Phil a picture too, if so which one, should I do "I Do" for both of them or should I stick with my original thought and just do a nice card that they can frame if they choose!!! Oh decisions decisions!!
Anyway onto another subject, here are the 2 decoupage cards I made for the girls this Christmas, they are actually 3D Stack Its.


And here is the card I made for Stuart, it is a Jolly Nation one, I like their stuff!


Otherwise I haven't done much stitching as we were at Tori's 18th party on Saturday then at my parents house last night as the girls had a little party for their friends at our house! Today I have been the only one in our house that had to go to work and I seem to have come down with the cold and sore throat Becky had last week, I'm not too bad just tired and have no energy....
I did make one more new start though yesterday...... here it is - Pirates Creed...... not a lot to show yet but you can see the beginnings of the sentence.


I think I am going to work on Johnny D now.... before I doze off..... I will hopefully post again on Christmas Eve to speak to everyone before the Big Day!!

Dunno if it will help but I have a Dena's Wedding cake sampler kit which is quite quick and cheeful...more modern than traditional tho. Can send you a picture if you want...or you could make a card with all the wedding details on which they could always frame later themselves if they wanted. I had a beautiful card made for me in a matching colour scheme to my flowers and bridesmaids and did just that. I love it just as much as I would a big sampler. I dont think they would be offended if you explained you were limited by time and knew there was a risk they would be moved around a lot.

Love Gaynor's suggestions! Or you could make a card and tell them their main gift will be later.

With time being so short, you could always just give them a nice gift, and then give them the "I Do" as a first anniversary present? Being the lazy woman that I am, that would be my solution, lol!

Theresa said...

this is a tough one indeed. i guess it depends on how fast you can stitch. LOL sorry i was being funny. on a more serious note, i think Tammy's idea is a good one. i think I would buy them a nice gift for the wedding and then make the stitched gift as a first wedding anniversary pressie. that buys you some more time and they still get a great gift that has been stitched with love

Wendy said...

Yeah I agree too, Don't put yourself under that pressure, stick with your original idea and look for a lovely first anniversary design instead.I .think a lovely card with the date/Church etc detailed in the colour scheme of the wedding will be fab for the big day!

How about making a nice floral heart in her wedding colours that she can carry on the actual day and keep, simple but special at the same time.

Love the cards you made too.

What about Bent Creek's Wedding Row. I'm working on it at the moment, and it's stitching up quickly. I could even lend you the chart after Christmas if you are interested? Good incentive for me to get it done, since I'm tying the knot in February.

I like Rowyn's idea. The Bent Creek Wedding Row is very pretty.

If you're thinking of doing I Do for them too how about turning it into a quiltied wall hanging? This way it would be different and can be shoved into a box/suitcase easily?

I love those cards, you are so talented. Gaynor's suggestions are great.

Merry Christmas.
