Your plans look great! We did pretty much everything DIY, with a lot of help from talented friends and family. A foody friend made our cake, my MIL did our flowers, my mom and I did the rest of the decorations, my dad and grandpa did most of the food (we did cater a few thigns), my mom and grandma altered my dress, we made my veil and garter. It can all be done I think, it just depends on the time you have/are willing to spend, and the skills you and those willing to help have. Good luck!

@MissHolly:  I think how much you can do and how much you should leave to a pro depends on your experience level.  Ask yourself:

  • How much experience do you have with crafts and such?  
  • Do you have anyone close like a mom, sister or friend who is crafty and can help?
  • How much free time do you have to devote to crafting?

From there you can assess what your stress level would be, time to handle things, and whether the savings are worth it in the long run.  If tying a ribbon or gluing something is the extent of your crafting, then perhaps select strassing your shoes and let professionals handle the rest.  If you’ve got a lot of time or have lots of helpers, taking on more could be doable.
