@Ms.2Mrs.: The kids πŸ™‚ I bought a ton of boxes of crayons for 20 cents when school started, and I melt them down and cool them in a shaped candy melt mold thing πŸ™‚ No real purpose, it’s just a fun thing.

I would suggest checking out the sister site Project Wedding, they have a great DIY section that gave me lots of ideas.

I did a bunch of DIY – programs, guestbook, centerpieces, invitations – they are all listed under my bio and on the DIY board.  πŸ™‚  Just keep in mind that DIY isn’t *always* less expensive.  Make sure to check on the alternatives and make a judgement based on not only cost, but time involved, and how much it means to you.  For instance, my card box was cheap for what I wanted, but it wasn’t the cheapest option to me for a card box.  I decided that I wanted a more personalized card box, rather then a generic one.  I could have made my invitations completely from scratch, but for what I really wanted, it was going to cost more to do that then to get kits from Michaels and personalize them!

@Ms.2Mrs.:  It’s fully your choice, but I can guarantee you that my invites (even though they came from a kit) didn’t end up looking too much the same as anyone else who bought the same kit!  Sometimes personalization can easily be done just by adding little touches here and there rather then building completely from scratch ya know?  

lol ok… I sound like I’m arguing against this and I’m really not.  Just trying to make a point!  lol Have fun with whatever you do!  πŸ™‚

Try making your own wedding party bouquet`s, boutonnieres and corsages.

You can buy an assortment of bulk flowers (real or fake), pick up some pins and hair elastics from the dollar store, and make them your self!!

DIY, especially paper goods, can defintiely be more expensive, but are more personal so it depends on what is important to you.

In My Humble Opinion, centerpieces are a GREAT DIY opportunity.  Centerpieces from a florist can be VERY pricey, if and you do searches you can find some lovely and less expensive DIY options (we are doing photo lumiary centerpieces that I LOVE).

Good luck.  You will love and hate weddingbee for all the DIY projects you learn about here  πŸ™‚
