I’m DIY’ing much of my wedding. I found a great tutorial for napkin rings http://www.merrimentdesign.com/recycled-fabric-napkin-rings-from-saran-wrap-tubes.php. It seems fairly simple and cost efficient. 

A lot of the stuff I found just by googling. I knew I wanted to DIY my invitations, and I got an idea in mind, googled it, and that website came up. It’s how I found the napkin rings. 

What kinds of things are you thinking you want to DIY? It may help to start with that and then go from there…

Oh… and of course Martha Stewart is a great resource for DIY… she’ll usually link you to other people and articles, etc.

Me!!! I’m not very creative, and ADD to boot- I can’t sit still for the life of me!  And yet somehow, I’ve made it through DIY invitations, DIY bouquets, and working on the DIY decorations.

I think it just has to do with what inspires you.  For me, I found these ideas online and once I saw them I just KNEW that was what I wanted for my wedding, so I made it happen.  There are a lot of DIY tutorials online though, basically if you have an idea you’re not sure how to pull off, google it and I guarantee there’s a tutorial out there, on this site or elsewhere.

Have fun!

I didn’t think I was very creative UNTIL I started all the wedding stuff!


Invitation Pocketfold/Inserts/Invite

Bouquets and ALL flowers… bouts

ALL paper products like:


Song Request Cards

Seating Chart ( also out of vinyl records)

Table Numbers (also of vinyl records)

I made bowls/basket like things out of records for our guestbook pages

And I’m sure some other things but I’m at a loss now lol

I am not crafty at all but I am pretty creative and my Maid/Matron of Honor is totally crafty.  We are DIY our table numbers, escort cards, STD’s Invitations, programs, favor boxes and bouquets/boutinears.  Oh and also planning to make some cake pops for our candy buffet.

I will say that DIY is a great way to personalize your wedding but it really isn’t less expensive!  I’ve spent an arm and two legs at Michaels already!
