  • Wedding: May 2014

I’ve been doing a lot of DIY – STD, invitations, place cards, popcorn bags which are also our programs, menu cards, labels for our rnoisemakers, paper flowers and mason jars for the centerpieces, personalized mason jars, card basket, pretty much everything other than my flowers (which my sister is gifting us for a wedding gift) I’m DIY just about everything.

  • Wedding: April 2014

I’ve done a lot of DIY, but all things that can be done way before the wedding. I made all of our favors, card box, seating arrangements, a lot of decor, dessert bar decor

Definitely run the numbers though and see if its really worth it to DIY things, soem things actually end up being moe expensive than just buying

This thread needs more pictures! 🙂 

Right about now, I’m wondering what projects I’ve left for the professionals. I DIYd my save the dates, website and invitations. Most recently, I finished my embroidered table numbers (including painted hoops because I’m crazy). I’m painting countless frames, designing all signs/menus, making garlands and backdrops… IF I don’t run out of time first!

Looking forward to seeing what others are doing as aisle decor!

@CarolinaCola:  That is SUCH a good idea! I have to figure out what to do for the remembrance of my grandpa and his grandpa. I might just do this.

  • Wedding: June 2014 - Gold Hill Gardens

Set our date last weekend 🙂 June 21 of this year! Right now we are in the process of DIYing: beaded edge on my elbow length veil, assembling, tying, weaving, etc. the cords for our hand fasting, and decorate the sash (all my mom), testing chocolate chip cookie recipes for our favors (future step-mom-in-law), making origami butterflies (future mom-in-law). I’m thinking we’ll DIY the flower center pieces but not bouquets and bouts, diy the photo booth, dye my petticoat. I know there’s more, but I can’t remember them at the moment!

@MangoLover4Life:  Most of the stuff in my wedding was DIY.


The invitations, program fans, gazebo flowers, pomanders, names cards, menus, petal aisle runner, welcome bags, my shoes (strassed)


We had a Destination Wedding and the resort charges a fortune for so much so we went the DIY route. Wedding party flwoers ann the reception table flowers were all done by the resort thou


Here are a few of my DIY items

The invitations were from Micheals (the kits you can do yourself) I can’t find a pic of them



and the runner on the wedding day



gazebo flowers



menus/seating cards




program fan






hangers for the door




Those are just a few of the things….I am prob forgetting a few things here and there b/c I really did a lot of stuff myself. Funny thing is I never really planned on being a DIY bride but when I saw the price of things I then decided to DIY!!

@MangoLover4Life:  I made a bunch of barnwood signs, paper dot garlands, and tissue poms – we cut and arranged all our own flowers out of my dad’s giant garden – my husband built our altar and “faux”tobooth – a lot of other little details too!
