So far I’d guess I spent around $200-$250 and that has made 6 bouquets, 2 boutteneires(sp?), my veil, flower girls basket, ring bearers pillow, favors, invitations, a small portion of the centerpieces, personalized hangers, and a few other odds and ends that I’m sure I’m forgetting! We are On a very tight budget and I’ve gotten some wicked deals so far on everything! Hoping to keep the budget around 3k, with our photographer being the most expensive thing.

I’m a waiting bee but I’ve decided to ease my anxiety by making paper flowers for my centerpieces. I’ve used paper and glue I already had plus scrap paper from work. So far I’ve spent $1 on skewers for the stems. Embarassed

programs were $80 for 100

coaster favors were $80 for 1,000

bubbles with tags were $12 for 96

invites with RSVP and envalopes were $150 for 75

Save the date $30 for 75

….. total was about $350/ maybe $400 but we saved so much doing it ourself and it was custom to us and so perfect 🙂

@Pinkmoon:  I was  like you in the begining.  I was buying EVERYTHING I though was cute and then kept changing my mind.  Finally, I decided to sit down and create a speadsheet for each DIY project I was planning on doing, with a budget and detailed list of things I would need.  Now I stick to the spreadsheets and keep track of everything I buy, so that I don’t spend in vain anymore.  I was lucky, because I was able to resell most the things I had bought but didn’t use.

@missjuli:  Congrats!

I don’t know exactly, but I think I’ve spent around $60 on DIY projects thus far.
