How many of you are planning to do much in the way of diy for your wedding? I like to have craft projects going on, but I am also trying to be realistic in that I can’t do too many things before the wedding.
I am planning to make our invitations along with my mother and a friend using cardstock and rubber stamping. I know it will be a lot of work, but as we enjoy making cards anyway, we are all very excited to do this. Then over the weekend, I got some supplies to make tissue paper pomander balls. For some reason I just love those things, but they take a lot of time. I see so many different diy ideas on here, but I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew.
So I was just curious of how many of you were trying to diy your wedding and how much of it.

I also love doing craft projects.
I’m doing the centerpieces, the favors, the place card holders myself. I have already done the save the dates (with a little help from a photo dept) That’s all I plan on doing myself. I don’t want to load too much on my plate & then not be able to get it done myself.

i meet with my best girlfriends every thursday night for girls night. i am the first of us to marry. we have already talked about how our girls nights will with time become “work” nights to handle the DIY project tasks.
I think with enough time and planning, you can accomplish a ton!!!

Well, I got the stuff for tissue paper pomanders over the weekend just to see how it would go. If it would look terrible or if it took too much time, I was going to say forget it. But I have been enjoying working on it. I kind of wanting to do that when I get home tonight, but me and the FI might go to Target tonight to register!
I will probably be making the centerpieces and I am really unsure of what our favors are going to be, but will end up doing those as well. I have a few friends who will be willing to help out as well, so that will be nice. I just don’t want to overload them either, no matter how eager they are to help.

My wedding just got moved up 6 months to October so I’m a little panicked! I’m making the invitations, tissue pomander balls (only need 4 though), favors, tote bags for bridesmaids, all the flowers, card box, and the centerpieces. I have a lot of help though.

Im doing (or have already done)
My invitations, my favors, bouquets, centerpieces, flowergirl basket, broom (well my mom is actually making my broom) veil, pins for bridesmaids hair, boutineers for the guys, programs (although i think im gonna ask one of my bridesmaids to help me) and thats it i think. I actually find working on the crafts helps to take off some of the stress of wedding planning. its very soothing for me…so it works out pretty well 🙂
