I am doing literally everything:

  • Invitations
  • All flowers (that is, bouquets, corsages, boutineers, and decorations)
  • Centerpeices
  • Altar (building it)
  • Dresses (sewing my wedding dress + the 2 bridesmaids dresses)
  • Men’s bowties (sewing)
  • Alcohol and other drinks
  • Food is being prepared by friends off of the menu I create
  • Favors

I can’t think of anything else right now, but if you name it – I’m sure I’m doing it. I have 6 months to go. My wedding is across the country. Guess what – I’m not stressing out! You can totally do it, especially with a whole 2 years.

I agree that you can do anything you want to as a DIY project and hire someone else to do what you aren’t interested in (invites, Save-The-Date Cards, etc).

I did my own flowers (artificial), centerpieces (paper flowers mostly), invites, Save-The-Date Cards, veil, bustle, jewelry, cake topper, and all church decorations.

Just a word of caution: DIY projects have a way of growing and expanding and costing more money than you anticipated. They are fun, but they don’t always save money.
