I think you should get your hair professionally done, but other than that… I did all of that for my wedding, and it turned out awesome!



I did a vintage style hairstyle which I don’t think I could of pulled off by myself. If you are doing something you feel confident doing, something simple, elegant then I would say practice, practice, practice. I just liked knowing that my hair stylist knew what she was doing. Kiss

I don’t think your crazy at all! My DIY list is the same (except for the hair) and then some…I think it depends on the person and if you have the time and ability to do these projects. I know my SIL said she would just buy but I am like you and can’t understand paying a few hundred dollars on something I could do at a fraction of the price myself. To me it’s so worth my time!

sounds good. why pay more? if you like doing it tell them to be quiet, or better yet enlist some of the handier ones to help!

Are you DIYing everything due to financial/budget reasons? if so, theres not much you can do. but if you have the money for it, i would totally hire people to take care of all that. you don’t want to be stressed up till your wedding day!

First of all, you’re my date twin which makes me super happy!  Its the first time ever, yay!  Anyway, if you can do these projects in advance, and have them out of the way, then more power to ya!  If its a matter of doing last minute projects the week of the wedding, I might advise to trim the DIY stuff down a bit.  I’m not as crafty as I thought I was so I haven’t done a lot.  But you’re right, you are saving lots of money going that route.  Its easier for people to think you’re nuts when they’re not the ones paying for the stuff!  Just don’t do it if your sanity is the expense.  From the list you provided, it doesn’t seem like you’ve taken on too much at all!

I think your list sounds very reasonable!! Just keep in mind, the list usually gets longer then you expect!

I agree with the others who have suggested getting your hair or make up done professionally or by a friend, just to reduce your stress 🙂

Compared to mine, your list seems a little small, but you are also getting married 4 months before me, so I think it’s reasonable. Just make a timeline and stick to it

I dont think it is too much. I would have my hair/makeup done by somebody else just so you wont be stressed on your big day but other than that it sounds fine.
