1. DIY bouquets (doing some practice bouquets right now)

2. DIY invitations (already done and sent out- I should have took photos)

3. DIY programs – I will share pics when they are done

4. DIY Floral arrangements for ceremony and center pieces for reception

5. DIY Place cards – will share photos when done

6.  DIY Favors – well sort of DIY (I bought some cone shaped boxes in my colors and I am filling them with cold stone creamery flavored Jelly Bellies… yum!

7.  DIY wine glass charms 

I love all my DIY projects! I have already started all of them because they are very time consuming…

Not much DIY left, which is huge PLUS given we only have 18 days before the Big Day… working on getting the bridal party gifts together and still have to write my Vows – OH add that to the DIY I guess… OH MY!

DIY invitations- Michaels, Target, Joann Fabrics, and so many more have the boxed kits with everything you need, just print your wording.

DIY Flowers- fiftyflowers.com, growersbox.com and others sell all types of flowers wholesale, so if you’re crafty and want something simple it’s very easy to do your own bouquets.

DIY place cards- go to any craft store and buy a colored card stock that goes with your theme or whatever you like. Cut out rectangles in the size you’re looking for and add little details to personalize.

The list goes on and on…

 The best thing about DIY, is that although it may take some time it really gives your wedding a more personal feel. You can customize just about anything to make it the way you want so look around theknot.com has some great ideas!

I haven’t started anything yet, since today it’s 13 months until our wedding, but I plan to start on the smaller projects this summer, like the crd box, table numbers, etc.  I’ve mainly been mocking up everything in photoshop, so I can visualize how it will all go together.

@ArtichokeHeart… with a lot of patiences and some package templates from your favorite store .  We bought ours from AC Moore, but I saw some really cute ones at Target too.  They all have templates in them to guide you on the formatting of each.  They can be as specific or as simple as you want them… We used a tri-fold program and designed our cover to fit our style, then on one side we included our wedding party and how they were each invloved in our lives and the final page was a simple explanation of the program and what to expect, along with a thank you to our guests and a simple remeberance for those who could not be with us.  We also included what songs were going to be played during each "special" moment…

Have fun with it and make them your own personal creation… HTH
